Flip Flops Are Okay If The President Does It

Tuesday, the President was asked the following question:

Q Thank you all. Mr. President, yesterday, Senator Levin, Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, said that the Iraqi parliament ought to oust Prime Minister Maliki and his government for being politically unable to deliver political unity there, for utterly failing on that point. I’m wondering what your reaction is to Senator Levin’s comment, and whether you think Maliki has lost credibility.

Here’s the flip response:

There are two types of political reconciliati on that can take place in a new democracy: One is from the top down, and one is from the bottom up. Clearly, the Iraqi government has got to do more through its parliament…a nd now their government has got to perform. And I think there’s a certain level of frustration with the leadership in general, inability to work…

Wednesday, as W was shooting another load off the Propaganda Catapult we witness the flop:

Prime Minister Maliki is a good guy, a good man with a difficult job, and I support him.

Well, that just about sews up the fate for Maliki, no? Might he go the way of Brownie and all the others that W supports? Fortunately, for us:

And it’s not up to politicians in Washington, D.C. to say whether he will remain in his position — that is up to the Iraqi people who now live in a democracy, and not a dictatorship .

We shall see what they do with Maliki…but should we tolerate the presidential flip flopper?

  1. There is not flip flop here. Read it like you wrote it:

    “And I think there’s a certain level of frustration with the leadership in general, inability to work…

    Then add in However…

    “Prime Minister Maliki is a good guy, a good man with a difficult job, and I support him.”
