This is Just...Weird

If you click on the link below, it takes you to the YouTube video of Colin Powell on Meet the Press, endorsing Barack Obama. Go to about the 2:40 mark, and you'll hear the following:

Colin Powell on Meet the Press
Powell: ...and there's going to be a crisis come along on the twenty-first or twenty-second of January that we don't even know about right now, and so I think what the president has to do is to start using the power of the Oval Office and the power of his personality to convince the American people and to convince the world that America is solid, America is going to move forward, we're going to fix our economic problems, we're going to meet our overseas obligations, but restoring a sense of purpose, a sense of confidence in the American people and in the international community in America.
First, we have Joe Biden prophesying a crisis if Obama's elected; now we have Colin Powell giving this ambiguous warning which includes a date--a day or two after the inauguration. Is it just me, or is this completely bizarre, even for election-season-conspiracy-theory fodder?

Paul, just this guy, you know? said...

Interesting; I missed that. Weren't those two remarks made on the same day?

It looks as if they were, Paul. Biden appears to have made his odd remarks this past Sunday evening.

On October 21 the Catholic Knight (http://catholicknight.blogspot.com/) reported that Iran will have the nuclear bomb around the time the new president is sworn in and will start in with Israel. According to his article, this information is what prompted these comments.

What is this? Vote for Obama or bad things will happen? Actually, let him say this. I think when people stop saying, "Obama--President" and start saying, "Obama--Commander in Chief" his stock drops alot.

Iran's nukes will be up and running around January/February.
