Mac vs. PC - Does Obama Flip Flop?

July 19, 2008 · Filed Under Opinion ·  

Parody of the Mac vs. PC ads where they discuss some of the recent issues where Barack Obama flip flopped, er, changed his mind and made a refinement.

1) Public vs. Private Campaign Finance options
2) NAFTA - Renegotiate, or not?
3) Telecom Immunity - For or against?
4) Chatting w/ Dictators - Unconditional, or Preparations?
5) Troops left in Iraq after withdrawal - 2,000 or 60,000?
6) DC Gun Ban - Constitutional, or not?

Freedom of Flip Flop

July 4, 2008 · Filed Under Gaffe, Iraq, John McCain, Opinion ·  

Remember that Barack Obama who ran hard during the Democratic primary with the commitment to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq over 16-months?

Well, he’s thinking about “refining” that plan.

When he makes a Mideast trip this summer, he says “I am going to do a thorough assessment when I’m there.”

So now that he’s starting to learn more about what’s happening in Iraq, he might be changing his 16-month troop withdrawal timetable?

He went on to say, “I’m sure I’ll have more information and continue to refine my policy” and that he is going to “continue to gather information to see whether those conditions still hold” for withdrawing the troops within 16 months.

It’s almost as if he didn’t examine the issue previously. Can the country afford to have somebody who is so behind on the learning curve?

Not to mention, is there any issue where Obama hasn’t flip flopped, yet?

Barack Obama Represents a Change for the Worst

June 20, 2008 · Filed Under Ethics, Fiscal, John McCain ·  

It was reported yesterday that Barack Obama decided to break his pledge to enter into the public financing system.

No great surprise - it’s not as if he’s been honest or consistent. This is just the latest flip flop, and as usual he has a bad excuse.

When trying to explain why he was declining public funding yesterday, Obama cited the role of third party groups, own as 527 groups, saying that McCain is “not going to stop the smears and attacks from his allies running so-called 527 groups, who will spend millions and millions of dollars in unlimited donations.”

That is a pretty lame excuse considering liberal 527 groups spent $146 million during the last Presidential election, while conservative 527 groups spent $46 million over the same time.

And this year, liberal 527 groups are, again, raising and spending far more than conservatives.

Once again, Democrats are cornering the marketing on hate and fear, and they’ll be spending more than ever between their 527 groups and the broken pledge fundraising of Obama.

I guess the public financing system isn’t the one he used to know.
