Two Obamas


September 13, 2012 by Julia

Candidate Obama in 2008:

But what George Bush and John McCain have missed consistently from the start of this process is the broader strategy.

You know, was it a wise thing to go in there and what are the costs and benefits of staying there indefinitely?

We’re spending $10 billion a month there. We’ve spent $200 billion since the surge began. Meanwhile, the situation where — you know, where the central front against terrorism should be taking place, in Afghanistan, the situation has deteriorated. And we had this brazen attack on a U.S. base where nine servicemen were killed.

President Obama in 2012:

During the interview, Obama obscured his reversal on the First Amendment by accusing Romney of politicizing his administration’s policies.

“Most Americans, Democrats or Republicans, understand that there are times where we set politics aside, and one of those is when we’ve got a direct threat to American personnel who are overseas,” he told Kroft, shortly before he claimed that “it appears that Governor Romney didn’t have his facts right.”

(emphasis added)

This hypocrisy is, of course, nothing new.



One thought on “Two Obamas

    President Obama is incredibly lucky that he’s running against Mitt Romney, and not 2008’s candidate Obama. That guy would totally kick his ass.
