Colin Powell desperately wants to change his image. Powell has tried to transform himself into a “recovering” Bush administration official and free-thinking Obama backer.
“Come on, Mitt, think,” he said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. Powell went on to say that the foreign affairs community has been taken aback by some of the presumptive Republican nominee’s positions.
Powell, who endorsed then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008, also called into question Romney’s choice for foreign-policy staffers, saying many of them were “extreme.”
“I don’t know who all of his advisers are, but I’ve seen some of the names and some of them are quite far to the right,” he said. “And sometimes they might be in a position to make judgments or recommendations to the candidate that should get a second thought.”
