But, he said, "one of the cautions that has to be given to the president -- and I've talked to some of his people about this -- is that you can't have so many things on the table that you can't absorb it all."
"And we can't pay for it all," said Mr. Powell, who was the first African-American to serve as secretary of state, under former President George W. Bush. He was also national security adviser to President Reagan, and was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President George H.W. Bush from 1989 to 1993.
(...)"So, I think the president, as he moves forward with his initiatives, has to start really taking a very, very hard look at what the cost of all this is. And, how much additional bureaucracy [will] be needed to make all of this happen?" Mr. Powell said.
Obviously a LOT of bureaucracy. Obviously.
Let's just hope Obama doesn't try to "afford it" by taking a chainsaw to stuff America really does need, like the military, without which America will eventually fall to jealous, greedy enemies who want to take the country away from Americans.
Or is this part of the Obama agenda? To weaken America however possible? To slash her ability to fend off the Axis of Evil while bringing about her bankrputcy?
We know that Obama's already refused to fund and permit those critically important, forward-looking military activities which would guarantee their future ability to protect America from any and all threats.
Really, who knows what Obama's trying to do? Who knows what his agenda really is? One can only observe what's actually being done (one often needs to go over the heads of the Old Media to find out a lot of stuff that's happening) and try to make sense of it all.
