Former Secretary of State Colin Powell told reporters after his appearance on Sunday's "Meet the Press" that his decision to endorse Barack Obama was driven, in part, by comments like those made by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). Bachmann said Friday that the media should investigate members of Congress to see if they were "pro-American" or 'anti-American."
"This business, for example, we've got a congressman from Minnesota whose going around saying, 'Let's examine all congressmen to see who is pro-America and whose not pro-America.' We've got to stop this kind of nonsense and pull ourselves together and remember that our great strength is in our unity and our diversity," Powell said.
