President Flip-Flop

This is a minor foootnote in light of the news that the President believes he is above the law and is unrepentant about breaking the law. But in the interest of bearing witness to hypocrisy, it should be noted that President Bush has flip-flopped on major issues at least twice this week. Bush opposed the McCain anti-torture legislation -- until he decided to support it. Bush said he couldn't talk about illegal spying until he changed his mind the next day and proudly acknowledged his disdain for the constitution's separation of powers. Of course, this is not the first time Bush has switched positions -- see, for example, his opposing the creation of the Department of Homeland Security (until he decided to support it) and his 2000 campaign promise to reduce certain pollutant emissions (withdrawn once he was elected).

I guess Kerry wasn't the only one who could flip-flop.

Flip-flop update: President Bush had said he would veto a bill providing for a temporary extension of the Patriot Act. He abruptly changed that position and now says he will sign a bill providing for a five week extension.
