While revisiting 2008, Hannity also brought up Powell’s criticism of those attacking Obama by bringing up Bill Ayers, or by calling him a socialist. He endorsed Obama because of his “inclusiveness,” Hannity said, but now the Obama campaign attacks Republicans for their opposition to government involvement in health care and the like. “I find him one of the most divisive figures that I’ve witnessed in politics today,” Hannity said.
Powell didn’t quite agree with that. What was divisive, he said, was when a number of commentators and pundits said they were set to destroy Obama after he was inaugurated. Powell further dismissed Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah Wright as not being defining or significant issues. The people heard all the attacks, he said, but they still elected Obama president.
