I find Ms. Powers quite interesting - more specifically, I find her metamorphosis quite interesting. About 6 months ago, or so, I caught her on FOX. Not unusual - she’s been on very often for at least a couple of years. Don’t remember the topic she was addressing, but I remember thinking I noticed a softening of what I had previously perceived to be her rather staunch, at times even strident, liberal take on events/issues. At the time I just assumed I must have been mistaken and gave it little more thought.
Now, however, I’ve seen her many times on FOX since that day and I now have no doubt she has moved away from her hard left position on many issues. Unlike other liberals - she’s no conservative to be sure - she has often voiced opposition to many elements of Obama’s agenda - she has been very critical of the lack of candor by Obama and Hillary Clinton regarding Benghazi and the general indifference toward the lack of security and lack of response provided the victims of the embassy attack. She’s recently been critical of Obama’s fiscal policy/spending.
Set in this context, I do not find her quote regarding the Obama/Clinton dog and pony show to be surprising.
There might be hope for her yet.
