President Flip-Flop?

Posted by Skye |


The spinelessness and moral cowardice of the Obama administration know no bounds.

New York Times:
He told Planned Parenthood that his first act as president would be to sign an abortion rights bill into law; now he says it is “not my highest legislative priority.” He promised gay rights advocates that he would work for the repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, but he has pushed action into the future. A proponent of transparency, he released previously classified memos describing the C.I.A.’s harsh interrogation techniques. But then he moved to block the release of photos showing abuse of detainees — a 180-degree turn from his administration’s previous position.

On all these fronts, Mr. Obama and his aides have offered detailed explanations of the factors that shape his decision-making. So far, the public seems on board. But in a sound-bite culture, there are limits to how much nuance the public can absorb.

Speaking of flip flopping and moral spinelessness - it seems the webmaster/mistress of ccdemocrats.com - a blog registered to Karen McCool - is attempting to cover its tracks by scrubbing the title of a recent post and claiming no knowledge of this offensive term.

It is quite clear my illumination of the title 'Tea-bagged?' has driven the recent wordsmithing of the title. Without my intervention, that title would have remained as permanent insult to women and gays. It is apparent this Democrat administration is no friend of gay rights advocates - why should acolytes of this administration in West Chester behave differently?

Hmmm....closed comments is a great way to promote open discussion..
