    Kerry seems to be a pretty bad flipflopper, but he is nothing compared to the guy he learned it all from, George Bush!

    Bush said he'd support firefighters w/ a 3.5 billion dollar aid deal, but after 18 months when the firefighters finally got it, it was no where near the 3.5 billion.

    1) Bush opposed the extension of the 9/11 commision, but now he is for it.
    President George W. Bush and House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.) have decided to oppose granting more time to an independent commission investigating the Sept. 11 attacks. Link

    2) Bush was against a 9/11 commission, but now he is for it
    President Bush said Thursday he opposes forming a special commission to investigate how the government handled terrorism warnings before Sept. 11, saying the information is too sensitive for such an investigation to be conducted in a public forum.Link
    "This administration has provided unprecedented cooperation to the 9/11 commission," McClellan said. "It provided access to every single bit of information that they have requested."
    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/02/27/politics/main602767.shtml

    3)Bush said he would only give a one hour of his time to the 9/11 commision, now he says he'll answer all questions they want to raise.http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2004/02/27/politics/main602767.shtml

    4)Bush was opposed to the commission investigating the huge meltdown of intelligence in Iraq, but now he is for it.
    Until now, President Bush has reacted coolly toward the idea of a new commission, refusing to endorse it publicly. But his administration is under mounting election-year pressure to agree to an independent inquiry about Iraq's alleged arsenal of banned destruction. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,110074,00.html

    5)Bush said he wouldn't negotiate with terrorists or countries belonging to the "Axis of Evil", but since then Bush has negotiated with the North Koreans, the palestinians, and made a peace agreement with the People's Mujahideen of Iran
    Terror must be stopped. No nation can negotiate with terrorists. For there is no way to make peace with those whose only goal is death. Â… Since Sept. 11, I've delivered this message: Everyone must choose; you're either with the civilized world, or you're with the terrorists." http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=27114

    Bush was oringinally opposed to a Department of Homeland Security, but after much pressure, he flipflopped.

    Bush said he would regulate power plants' output of carbon dioxide, but he has flipflopped.

    Bush said he wouldn't allow the UN to bid on contracts, now he does.

    Bush flipflopped on steel tariffs.

    Bush said he was against "nation building", but now his presidency revolves around nothing else.

    This is just the beginning of the Bush flip flop thread. I'll continue to add them as they come.

    He did support it,he signed it . What you want from congress and what you get are never the same thing ..nice try..
    G.W wanted an extension till 05...he didnt get it. as for being against the comission...why spend money when we all know that if the money hadnt been taken away by cuts[democrats] the power to operate properly would have still been there...nice try
    Negotiate with the NK's? what would you have us do? start WWIII...nice try
    show a link for the homeland security and power plant claims please...
    The UN doest bid on contracts....nice try
    G.W said he would TRY to hold the tariffs in place for three years to allow the industry as a whole modernize their plants. The industry thanked him for what he did, It has been noted that the steelindustry didnt need the 3 years!.. again nice try
    as for nation building....I suppose you mean Iraq? we tore the country up, are we to just walk away? we didnt walk away afterWWII and we arent walking away now...thanks for playing

    Dont worry about starting WW3 with Korea. Reagan ended WW3 when he brought the soviets down.

    Alright, I can find 10 easy. The ones I posted I'll explain further and put up links. The UN one wasn't the actual UN being allowed to bid, but the actual countries that make up the UN that didn't support the war.

    And Reagan didn't bring the soviets down

    If Ronnie wasnt responsable for the fall of the wall..then who do you feel should get the credit? as for the countrys blocked from the contracts...only the first round of contracts were blocked. why should they countries that didnt support us get the spoils? they already made there money by skirting the santions anyway...screw france,germany and russia...they got caught with their hand in the cookiejar good. that why they were against us going in, so we wouldnt find out the truth about them.

    You're going into the reasons why bush changed his mind, which is exactly what you guys aren't doing with kerry. So I'm going to start putting up examples of times when bush flipflopped like kerry does.

    The commies fell from within, the country's economy collasped. I guess I've never heard a realistic argument about why Reagan defeated the USSR.:rolleyes:

    Believe me, I'm one of the last people that wanted to see Kerry nominated in our party, but if Bush wants to play dirty, I say so can we. And it kind of looks like Bush will say whatever the people want to hear, the ban on gay marriage amendment and giving however much time the 9/11 commission wants to interview him.
