Flip Flop Obama

A question to those Americans who are planning on voting for Barack Obama in November: Do you like being thought of as malleable fools?

No, I'm not talking about his liberal positions, though will undoubtedly lead our economy further into the tank, among other ill effects. I'm talking about his almost parody-like, double talking duplicity when it comes to gaining political advantage. Consider the promises he's now renegged:

1) "Disowning" Wright, only after Wright called him a typical politician
2) Embracing NAFTA, after suggesting he would renegotiate the agreement to benefit American workers
3) Supports legislative protection for phone companies who help federal agencies engage in wiretapping
4) Abandoning the public financing system system after collecting record amounts of donations - shiftily blaming this decision on Republican smear groups, of which there are effectively 0 operating at the current time. Ironically, it's MoveOn.org, the liberal smear group, that is the most active thus far in the election.
5) The latest, most unbelievably comical example: claiming to support gun ownership in light of the Heller decision, and claiming his former stance on gun ownership restrictions was a misconception based on fallacy, after HIS AIDE checked the wrong box on a questionnaire.

There are more, I'm sure. But seriously, Sen. Obama is now trying to have the American electorate believe that an aide is responsible for his reputation as being against the 2nd Amendment. He's bet on the stupidity of the American people, and unfortunately, according to the polls, he's got a 50/50 shot in winning.
