Obama's Flip-Flops

Obama's Flip-Flops

By John Lillpop

When Barack Obama started his fairy tale run for the White House, the operative term was CHANGE.

CHANGE this, CHANGE that, CHANGE everything, was the promise from the charismatic young Marxist who set the nation afire with his naive exuberance, confident demeanor, and ability to send "inevitability Queen" Hillary Clinton back to the US Senate with her tail between her legs and about $20 million missing from her personal checking account.

Those were the heady days of January through May when Obama took on the persona of a rock star, not only in America but also throughout the world.

As a rock star, Obama would probably be a terrific candidate; in fact, he would be nearly unbeatable.

But being commander-in-chief of the most powerful nation on earth is a bit more challenging that that. Indeed, when one is running for the presidency, voters expect the candidate to state his positions clearly and to stick to them.

However, much to the chagrin of dim wits at moveon.orgy and other lefty goons, Barack Obama has started backing away from his agenda of change on an almost daily basis.

Remember these promises?

Elect me, he said, and we will bring the troops home in 16 months.

Elect me, he said, and we will rework NAFTA to meet the needs of American labor.

Elect me, he said, and I will meet with terrorists like Iran`s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without pre-conditions.

Elect me, he said, and there will be no retroactive immunity for phone companies that helped the government implement warrantless wiretapping programs.

In addition, Obama made a commitment to participate in public financing as a way to indemnify his campaign from entanglements with unsavory lobbyists and influence buyers.

Once Hillary Clinton was vanquished and the nomination assured, Barack Obama skated away from his earlier promises apparently with impunity.

Left wing fools like those at moveon.orgy are finally catching on--they have been bamboozled, big time, by the brother with Muslim first, middle, and last names!

Contrary to earlier promises, if elected, Obama will:

NOT bring the troops home in sixteen months;

NOT Work to re-negotiate NAFTA;

NOT Meet with the world`s terrorists without pre-conditions, and

NOT oppose retroactive immunity for warrantless wiretapping.

And he has already sworn off public financing!

In truth, Barack Obama is nothing more than an old school politician, indistinguishable from all the others who work to assure that the status quo is maintained at all costs.

Still, it is very entertaining to watch the left squirm and squeal as Obama slip slides further and further away from their wrong headed communist agenda!
