Powell Faults Obama's Agenda

Colin Powell played an important role endorsing President Obama before the election--so what does he think of the commander in chief now? "I'm a little concerned," the former secretary of State told CNN in an interview airing Sunday. "I'm concerned at the number of programs that are being presented, the bills associated with these programs and the additional government that will be needed to execute them." Specifically, there's too much to do and not enough money to pay for it. "I think 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," he added.
