I am not talking about those shoes that were called thongs when I was much younger. Now thongs are underwear, butt floss to be exact, and flip-flops are sandals. You know what I am talking about and no I am not talking about that. I am talking about the candidates. I don't think either candidate can run away from the flip-flop label. But I do think Obama is the King of the flip and the flop. He is all over the place on foreign policy, campaign finance, NAFTA, immigration, marijuana legalization, actually running for President (he said in '04 that he will not run), single-layer health care (socialized medicine, now he calls it universal) and he voted to repeal the Patriot Act and then voted for it (yea I know that was a major run on sentence and I don't really care). He has also changed his mind repeatedly regarding the 2nd amendment, and upon the Supreme Courts ruling even claimed to be consistent on supporting gun rights. I say let's pry his cold dead hands from his rifle, that IS how much he cherishes that constitutional right, right? It is only bitter people who cling to their guns. Obama appears to be addicted to mind "change"ing. So I think if Dem's want to go THERE, I say let's do. Let's discuss the flip-flops. From where I sit Obama is the best at flipping it and the best at convincing his "fans" that he doesn't flop it. I am sure he agrees. And disagrees. And opposes. And favors. He is at least consistent about being inconsistent. I really "hope" that he won't "change" his mind when he becomes President. But I suspect that "yes he will". Don't go changin' to try and please me, I won't vote for you just the way you are!
