MATTHEW THIEL: Obama is the ultimate flip-flopper

October 10, 2012 

President Obama is the ultimate flip-flopper of them all, in fact all politicians are, it's the name of the game.

Now let's get back to how Obama has flip-flopped. The first flip is the Bush tax cuts, In 2008, Obama said that, as president, he would repeal the Bush tax cuts for the rich, but in 2010, he extended those cuts.

Second, as a Senator, Obama opposed raising the debt ceiling, and said adding 4 trillion in was "unpatriotic," yet as president, he insisted the debt ceiling be raised and has added substantially infuses on substantially, more than 4 trillion to the debt.

In August 2008, Senator Obama announced, as The Washington Post noted, "a detailed comprehensive space plan that includes $2 billion in new funding to reinvigorate NASA." What happened to our NASA space program now?

You might want to check your facts and stop accusing Mitt of being a flip-flopper and look at our president now as well. How is that Hope and Change doing for you?
