Colin Powell announced his support for President Obama yesterday, citing foreign policy consistency behind his decision.
The former Republican Secretary of State also supported Obama in 2008.
Powell is, obviously, a moderate Republican, something to be cherished while it still exists.
Though Powell plans to vote for Obama, he also pointed out a few things he wasn’t pleased with regarding Obama’s tenure, including fixing Obamacare and the economy. In spite of this, Powell, who understands the impact strong, calm leadership has on foreign policy more than most, is sticking with the President.
“I also saw the president get us out of one war, start to get us out of a second war and did not get us into any new wars,” Mr. Powell said. “I think the actions he’s taken with respect to protecting us from terrorism have been very, very solid. And so I think we ought to keep on the track that we are on.”
