Remember when Colin Powell endorsed Barack Obama in 2008 and Republicans were accusing him of being a Democrat or a racist? (The idea on that last one was that Powell was just supporting Obama just because they're both black.) I think they're about to jump all over Powell again:
Earlier in the interview, Mr. Powell described Mr. Romney’s foreign policy advisers as “quite far to the right.’
“Sometimes, they, I think, might be in a position to make judgments or recommendations to the candidate that should get a second thought,” Mr. Powell said.
He's telling the truth. Hopefully, this will bring much more attention to Romney's advisers, who are almost entirely made up of ex-Bush people. The press has given Romney a pass on his associations so far; maybe now thanks to Powell, they'll be forced to do some vetting.
