To some, what esteemed Gen. Colin Powell did on Sunday was become Benedict Arnold to the partyer, country he defended. But to many, many, many others, it was the final death blow to the potential McCain Administration.

He endorsed Barack Obama for president… and chiefly for religious reasons.

Punditry aside. Wayfaring, straight-ticket voters silenced. That is dissecting the political process, Wall Watchers! And mondo kudos to Tom Brokaw for allowing Powell to break that down with even a breath of interruption. Nicely done for the clean sound bite.

Albeit, General and former Sec. of State Powell is enamored by Obama’s eloquence and insight, he understands what this country needs despite political affiliation – a recharge. This country needs to have faith again in the government it positions to lead them. Additionally, the empty-headed, faith-less vitriol needs to stop so this country can begin to start again.

The Body of Christ had its opportunity with a president that openly advocates Jesus Christ, and how’s that working out? Bush has maintained his amazing faith in God, but America has lost its faith in him… and that’s not good.

NOTE 4:33 in the video, and there you will find the rub. And you’ll note… he’s right.

Obama is indeed a Christian. Heck, Jeremiah Wright is a Christian. They are both liberationists, and that is where Barack gets his smear.

Dude, you do not spend 20 years under a pastor and not get some of that on you. I went to a church a decade ago and adored my pastor… and I still remember – and account for – some of his haughty one liners. Don’t tell me none of that “Hate Whitey” stuff didn’t get in his dander. What he does with it is a different story, and one that Gen. Colin Powell chose to bring up for review:

I’m also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the party say. And it is permitted to be said: such things as, “Well, you know that Mr. Obama is a Muslim.” Well, the correct answer is he is not a Muslim; he’s a Christian, has always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, “What if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country?” The answer’s “No, that’s not America.” Is there something wrong with some 7-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet, I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion he’s Muslim and he might be associated with terrorists. This is not the way we should be doing it in America.

And for some sheet-wearing fans to shout out “Kill him” and “Terrorist” at McCain rallies is a sad demarcation on how conservative advertising is going. Notice, McCain is not at fault here. He has openly told those folk to shut up, but the ads continue… and so does the misguided hate. We need to rebound people, realize a person of a certain religion can be president as long as we collectively pray for God Almighty to lord over this nation. And if there is something to pray for, it’s for Congress.

Pray for the Hill like never before for three crucial reasons:

  1. Although YOU have the power to put God-fearing people in those seats, 90% of you will vote for whose name is seen more on TV and roadsign signs. Congress has a 3% approval rating. I would dare say Congress needs a face lift… or a 535-face lift to be exact.
  2. Obama has some very questionable ideas that will stick 1000s of small-business owners and others that will help them, but all his plans have to pass muster with that hopeful newly placed Congress. Pray for the insight and fortitude of those Senators and Representative to stand by the laurels that got them in Congress… ours!
  3. IF Obama does fail in office, pray those four years go by swiftly and the GOP develops a new, appealing and magnanimous face to win the election and maybe then you can rest well on Nov. 5, 2012.
