    He flip flops just as much or more as anyone else. Yet when he does it a readily available excuse it primed to be fired. When a republican does it, its viewed as a lack of backbone or fiber.
    I have been an equal opportunity bitcher when I see the gop doing stupid shit. I've had many threads about the mistakes of different gop positions or candidates. Hell, one of you even have my bitching in one of your sigs. The only one I have seen denounce anything Obama has done flat out was Plasmaball. Many of you hint at it but always have an excuse to fall back on.


    Most recently is the flip flop that Obama has done with regard to superpacs. And let's be clear how big a flip this really is...

    Obama once said the following:

    SUPER PACS ARE NOT ONLY A THREAT TO DEMOCRATS, THEY'RE A THREAT TO OUR DEMOCRACY.


    Now if he truly believed that and wasn't just blowing partisan smoke up your collective asses why in the hell would he flip flop and RISK OUR DEMOCRACY being in trouble? And more importantly, why the hell don't you call him on it? Are you also willing to RISK OUR DEMOCRACY just to get him reelected?

    We don't see anything wrong with changing your mind when new information is presented. In fact, it's encouraged.

    And we apply that to both sides equally.

    Do tell, what new information has come to light that shows that super pacs are good for our country or politics?

    Besides the fact that Obama can get FREE advertising of course.

    Obama never said they were good for the country.

    Did you watch the video you posted?

    Yep, I did.

    Obama did say however... "SUPER PACS ARE NOT JUST A THREAT TO DEMOCRATS, THEY'RE A THREAT TO OUR DEMOCRACY"

    Stop ignoring that fact and please reconcile it for me.....

    Are you ever not bitter and angry? Super pacs are a new political super weapon, only a fool would forgo using them when the competition has an arsenal of them. There's your answer, the republican money machine forced this new dynamic on us, instead of beating up on Obama you should be beating up on the people who thought this was a good idea.
