Obama saved the OIL industry! Colin Powell commercial
Vanity

Posted on 11/03/2012 5:11:29 AM PDT by finnsheep

Yesterday - not sure if it ran on CBS NY or CNN, a commercial ran with Colin Powell endorsing Obama - - like this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZG9Q0sdzfw

Only in this one Powell claims Obama saved the Oil industry instead of the auto industry. I couldn't believe it the first time so paid very close attention the second time. Oil industry!! Tooo bizarre. I was so shocked I didn't notice who sponsored the commercial.


TOPICS: Politics/Elections; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: 2012endorsements; bhoenergy; coal; powell; vanity

There are plenty of oil company CEO’s who are barfing in their Wheaties over that one, I’ll bet.

Saved the oil industry! It’s enough to make a cat laugh.

“Vote color not charactor” should be the end comment of this commercial. The fall from grace is a rough one, colon and I mean COLON.

We have seen the very bottom of the barrel in political ads this election, sponsored by the Democrats. To accuse Romney of killing someone’s wife, to say he didn’t pay income taxes, the ludicrous “first time” ad......voters feel like that little girl who cried out in misery that she wanted this campaign to stop.

Your link goes to an ad where Colon Bowel says oblama saved the auto-industry.

Nothing in it about oil.

One day, conservatives will wise up and send these “moderates” packing.

I have no proof but, IMHO maybe he had some interns of his own when he was General.

They should run that ad juxtaposed with Power at the UN saying he saw evidence of WMD in Iraq. (Of course they would had he endorsed McCain or Romney.)

Truly, Liberalism in an mental disease that causes insanity, self-loathing and violence. Colon Bowel’s utter lies and nonsense are just more proof of it. I think most normal Americans can see right thru the insanity.

I thought Maxine Waters saved the Oil Industry by threatening to nationalize them. BTW, FUBO!

“Me thinks, Colin is setting himself up for a run in 2016 as a Dem..”

I think you are correct, at least a switch in parties. I think Mr Powell, is finding it hard, in the circle he now travels in, to remain a Republican and maintain his acceptance.
His values run skin deep, as in color.

I don’t know which channel it was on but I was watching Gold Rush and I saw the add at least 4 times. He did say Obama saved the oil industry and also that the housing market was getting better.(somthing to that effect) Sick add by a sick man.

Powell’s a Great Society kind of guy.

“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” Lyndon Baines Johnson, on his Great Society.

Powell continues to prove how he made general.

Hint: It wasn’t talent, ability, leadership or IQ.

Hmmm, wonder what it could be?

Colin needs to change his name to Colon because he is so full of it his skin is starting to brown.

There’s a huge issue in Britain these days about a guy who,it seems,was much loved by Brits for decades,Jimmy Saville.He had been knighted by the Queen and was a national icon there and I guess it was *major* news when he died last year.However,just in the last month or so *very* strong evidence has emerged indicating that he had been diddling teenage girls for decades...dozens,if not hundreds,of them.The outrage and disgust has been all over the British papers during this time.Although I’ve suspected since ‘08 I’ve just become convinced that Powell’s been “diddling” the nation for several decades...at least.
