Flip flop . . .
nobody knows when it will stop . . .

Obama has carried flip-flopping to new heights. In the space of a month and a half, this candidate - who we don’t really yet know very well - reversed or sharply modified his positions on at least eight key issues:

• After vowing to eschew private fundraising and take public financing, he has now refused public money.

• Once he threatened to filibuster a bill to protect telephone companies from liability for their cooperation with national security wiretaps; now he has voted for the legislation.

• Turning his back on a lifetime of support for gun control, he now recognizes a Second Amendment right to bear arms in the wake of the Supreme Court decision.

• Formerly, he told the Israeli lobby that he favored an undivided Jerusalem. Now he says he didn’t mean it.

• From a 100 percent pro-choice position, he now has migrated to expressing doubts about allowing partial-birth abortions.

• For the first time, he now speaks highly of using church-based institutions to deliver public services to the poor.

• Having based his entire campaign on withdrawal from Iraq, he now pledges to consult with the military first.

• During the primary, he backed merit pay for teachers - but before the union a few weeks ago, he opposed it.

• After specifically saying in the primaries that he disagreed with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s (D-N.Y.) proposal to impose Social Security taxes on income over $200,000 and wanted to tax all income, he has now adopted the Clinton position.

He even changed his web site by deleting large portions and changing it.

I wonder if this was at the behest of his long time spiriitual counselor Rev. Wright,

or his finance guy, can't remember his name, the one who has been indicted for aiding in funding terrorism,

or maybe he learned this tactic in corrupt Chicago politics.

Funny, at work we were talking about him. Our consensus was that if you wait 6-8 weeks his position will change on what ever issue is at hand. That is if you can figure out his position on an issue, and decipher all the political BS he spews out.

Anyone else notice he looks more like a monkey than GWB?

Rhetorical question - does it really matter how many times he "refines his position" if McCain bloody his nose with it EVERY time?

2/3's of America isn't paying close attention.......

I think there are many more reasons to dislike/not trust the guy than his looks, those should be the LAST thing that you consider for this job.

However, having said that, I did notice the ears on the video from his meeting in Afghanistan, and it made me wonder how long before he disappears for a few days and re-appears with his ears pinned back?
