Okay, if these weren't such dire and desperate times, Obama's recent posturing would be downright comical. He is literally flipping positions more often and with more ease than a FL condo speculator circa 2004.
Is anyone else paying attention to the egregious number of U-turns he has done only TWO MONTHS after cinching the nomination? Whenever I see his smug mug on TV now, chin tilted up like a faux Roman emperor, I just imagine him saying: "You're stuck with me now. What're you going to do? Vote for McCain? F*** off."
A list of McBama's most flagrant Flips (in the past 3 weeks):
1. After vowing to eschew private fundraising and take public financing, he has now refused public money.
And watch for this, boys and girls: When gas hits $6/gallon, McBama will flip *surprise!* and support off-shore drilling. Voters wanted "change", right? And he plans to give it to them on a REGULAR basis -- by "changing" his mind every few days.
And as if that's not enough, I wake up this morning and hear that McBama now wants to take the "war on terrorism" to Pakistan??
Hello? As if our foreign policy isn't jacked up enough? Let's see...we have a lameduck president who is threatening a country that MAY have a nuke; but now this bonehead wants to go after a country that DEFINITELY has nukes.
This is "change"??
And no, I don't buy the lame arguments about "shrewdly playing to the middle". His isn't playing to the middle, the right, or any side. He is playing to sheer insanity -- appealing only to the NeoCons who still run this joint and the 5,000 or so crackpots in red states who actually think it's "fun" to go to war. Wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and possibly Iran -- for crying out loud, not even hardcore Republicans are looking for a 4-front war!! There is no consensus to be had here. This is not a move that BROADENS political appeal -- just like retroactive immunity to telecoms for warrantless wiretapping doesn't play to any voter bloc: "You know, I was on the fence about Obama, but now that I know he'll sell our civil liberties down the river to protect the major phone companies in the war on terror, he's got my vote!!"
We need to face facts: McBama is now officially a part of the military industrial complex.
"No, I most certainly would NOT have attacked Iraq after 9/11! ...But yes, (a) I will continue to give Bush as much money as he needs to continue that pointless war; (b) I will take military action against Iran, if necessary, to make sure they don't threaten Israel; and (c) I will take the fight to Pakistan to search for terrorists -- who, incidentally, all have mailing addresses in Iraq."
Even the dim-witted Dems who support him -- Richardson, Edwards, Biden -- all think this is ludicrous.
And word on the Beltway is that McBama's arrogance is even starting to piss off those in his own party.
"Privately, however, there is a different message coming from some Democratic quarters on the Hill and on K Street. Some Democratic leadership staffers complain that, having defeated the vaunted Clinton political machine in the primaries, the Obama campaign now feels a “sense of entitlement” that leads to “arrogance.”
One Democratic aide, speaking on the condition of anonymity, compared the Obama campaign unfavorably to President Bush’s administration. *GASP! SURPRISE!*
“At least Bush waited until he was in the White House before they started ignoring everybody,” the aide said."
If I were a McBama supporter, I'd get a refund on my donation(s).
Black people foolishly think his nomination and election will be a proud day for our race. Well, it won't be the first time the we were taken in and fooled by one of our own, simply because of their skin color.
Can you say "O.J."?
Alas...Jesse Jackson was right. This man is not to be trusted. And he will take us straight to hell, with a flash of his pearly white teeth and a folksy grin.
Hope you enjoy the ride!
