Obama and the FISA bill

Just last October, the Obama campaign issued the folowing statement: "To be clear: Barack will support a filibuster of any bill that includes retroactive immunity for telecommunications companies."

Today, not only did Barack Obama not fillibuster this bill, he actually voted in favor of the very bill his office promised he would so strongly oppose...including the provision for retroactive immunity.

When Barack Obama said he was going to be the candidate of change, I don't think his supporters realized that he was talking about how often he would change his mind.

Just to be clear: I don't understand why anyone believes anything Barack Obama says.

Oh man... that was a good line!

It's political inexperience and general ineptitude that lead him to make such huge mistakes. I imagine this sort of thing is going to impress the daylights out of the radical left.

You can fool some of the people all of the time! Obama is actively going after this group that is growing larger and larger in America. The left will forgive him because they know he doesn't mean it.
