An Obama Flip-Flop Fit for John Kerry

The news that is not White House approved...

A Tale of Two Obamas

President Obama was in Afghanistan over the weekend in his very first visit to that country since his inauguration. While he was on the ground he attended an event with the troops, but take a close look at what he had to say. It is a far cry from what we heard from him on the campaign trail:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: The United States of America does not quit once it starts on something.

(CHEERS)

OBAMA: You don't quit. The American Armed Services does not quit. We keep at it, we persevere. And together with our partners, we will prevail.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

As NewsBusters.org and others are pointing out, it sounds strange coming from a guy who repeatedly called for an abrupt withdrawal from Iraq during the campaign.

Remember this?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA, SEPT. 12, 2007: Let me be clear, there is no military solution in Iraq. There never was. The best way to protect our security and to pressure Iraq's leaders to resolve their civil war is to immediately begin to remove our combat troops. Not in six months or in one year, but now.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Wow. A flip-flop like that would even make John Kerry jealous.

Retribution

If you publicly oppose the Democrats' health care bill you could soon find yourself testifying on Capitol Hill.

Last week we reported that because of the legislation, AT&T plans to take a $1 billion charge in the first quarter. Now other companies are taking a hit as well:

• Deere & Company: $150 million

• Caterpillar: $100 million

• 3M: $90 million

• AK Steel: $31 million

The Wall Street Journal reports this list will grow in the days ahead.

In an attempt to silence these companies, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman says he will drag them into a hearing on April 21 to explain how they came up with these figures.

I guess dissent is no longer tolerated in America.

Survey Says...

Democrats and their allies in the mainstream Obama-mania media want you to believe that Tea Party attendees are uninformed on the issues. But guess what? A shocking new poll shows that a majority of Americans actually think members of Congress are the ones who are out of touch.

Fifty-two percent of those polled say the average member of the Tea Party movement has a better understanding of the issues than the average member of Congress. Only 30 percent sided with their elected representatives in the poll. Eighteen percent were not sure.

I want to bet that more members of the Tea Party movement actually read the health care bill than members of Congress.

Plague Proof

As Christians begin to observe Holy Week, scientists are claiming that they found physical evidence of the 10 biblical plagues described in the Old Testament.

If you are wondering how the story belongs in The Meltdown, here's your answer: Researchers say global warming was to blame for the plagues. The London Telegraph reports, "The scientists claim the plagues can be attributed to a chain of natural phenomena triggered by changes in the climate."

And since they didn't have SUVs in and around the year 1213 B.C., I guess humans are not to blame for global warming after all.
