Obama Makes Huge Flip Flop on Iraq
Stop the ACLU ^ | 3 July 08 | John Stephenson

Posted on 07/03/2008 3:53:16 PM PDT by Jay777

Of course he tries to doctor it all up with fancy phrase catches like "I've always maintained" etc, etc., but he is fooling no one on the right or the left. Why would he change the strongest position he has with the left at this stage in the game?

“I’ve always said that the pace of withdrawal would be dictated by the safety and security of our troops and the need to maintain stability. That assessment has not changed,” he said. “And when I go to Iraq and have a chance to talk to some of the commanders on the ground, I’m sure I’ll have more information and will continue to refine my policies.”…

“My 16-month timeline, if you examine everything that I’ve said, was always premised on making sure that our troops were safe,” he said. “I said that based on the information that we had received from our commanders that one to two brigades a month could be pulled out safely, from a logistical perspective. My guiding approach continues to be that we’ve got to make sure that our troops are safe and that Iraq is stable.”

He added, “I’m going to continue to gather information to find out whether those conditions still hold.”

What? We are now full circle and Obama, the man the far left hung their "hope" on to pull out the troops and retreat from Iraq in defeat, has the same position on Iraq that McCain has. The nutroots will go crazy on this one! DU is already in panic!

Obama changes his stance for whatever crowd or poll his handlers serve up to him...then he just follows the teleprompter.

He and his handlers arrogantly think that this will not matter...that because of his engineered idol status by a media blitz campaign designed specifically for that purpose, that they have this thing wrapped up.

But they are wrong.

IN A TIME OF WAR JOHN MCCAIN SERVED AND SUFFERED FOR HIS COUNTRY.



WHILE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA SERVED HIMSELF...AND STILL DOES.

(Intro:)
You say it’s yes, and then it’s no;
You say you’ll stay, and then you go -
You’re undecided now, so what are you gonna do?

First you say you do, and then you don’t,
And then you say you will, and then you won’t;
You’re undecided now, so what are you gonna do?

Now you want to play, and then it’s no,
And when you say you’ll stay, that’s when you go -
You’re undecided now, so what are you gonna do?

(Bridge:)
I’ve been sittin’ on a fence, and it doesn’t make much sense,
‘Cause you keep me in suspense, and you know it.
You promise to return; when you don’t I really burn,
Well, I guess I’ll never learn, and I show it!

If you got a heart, and if you’re kind,
Then don’t keep us apart, make up your mind.
You’re undecided now, so what are you gonna do?

(Instrumental)

First you say you do, and then you don’t, no, you don’t,
And then you say you will, and then you won’t, no you won’t -
You’re undecided now, so what are you gonna do?

Now you want to play, and then it’s no, then it’s no,
And when you say you’ll stay, that’s when you go, when you go -
You’re undecided now, so what are you gonna do?

(Repeat Bridge)

If you got a heart, and if you’re kind,
Then don’t keep us apart, make up your mind.
You’re undecided now, so what are you gonna do?

(Coda:)
You say it’s yes, and then it’s no;
You say you’ll stay, and then you go -
You’re undecided now, so what are you gonna do?

Major Obama flips: FISA, public financing, DC gun ban, welfare reform, telecommunications immunity and now, the Iraq war.

And the list grows ....

Obama is the candidate of Change. Every day, he changes his views depending on what the polls say.
