Flip-Flopping Made Easy: Backspace and Delete

Author: Kari

Barack Obama thinks that pressing the backspace button on his erroneous policies will make everyone forget that what he stands for is dead wrong.

The Iraq page on Obama’s website has a much different look today than it did last week. That’s because his campaign took out all of Obama’s soundbites and quotes on how the troop surge in Iraq to improve security was failing and was actually making the situation worse. They replaced his negative take on the surge with quotes on the success of the program and the hard work of our soldiers stationed there.

Today the surge is widely considered a success. Of course, instead of saying that he was wrong and commending the Bush administration and surge supporters for making the right decision, Obama just sidestepped the issue with a stroke of the delete key.

A section of Obama’s Iraq page is entitled, “Judgement You Can Trust.” Seems a little hard to trust someone who not only makes a judgement that was bad, but makes a bad judgement that he refuses to admit to. And if this statement by Obama in January of 07 is the truth, then we can’t trust the people he works with either. “I don’t know any expert on the region or any military officer that I’ve spoken to privately that believes that that is going to make a substantial difference on the situation on the ground.”
