Over at The Campaign Spot, Jim Geraghty observes that all Barack Obama’s promises have an expiration date:Â “Consumers should be aware that promises, pledged, and soul-healing rhetoric are only effective for a limited time; upon expiration they become ‘just words.’”
Jim then lists the various statements and promises the Democrat made, followed by the expiration date, when he changed his mind.Â (Just read the whole thing to see how this sort of behavior defines the Illinois Senator.)
. . . surprising, even to someone who’s followed the entire presidential race in great detail, the extent to which Obama has gotten away with blatant position switches, political opportunism, and outright lying while floating above us all as the post-partisan redeemer of America.
To show you just how opportunistic this Democrat is, watch the video:
Like Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama has made lots of promises. The Georgia Democrat didn’t keep many of his, but at least he waited until after his election to start breaking them. How can we trust a man to lead who can’t keep his word?
What does it say about a man’s ability to lead when he switches stands in order to tack to prevailing political winds?
