- Barack Obama is a far worse flip-flopper than John McCain, provided you ignore all of John McCain's egregious flip-flops.
In perhaps one of the most shameful displays of John McCain Media Worship, Bonnie Erbe takes to the pages of US News & World Report today to decry that Barack Obama, not John McCain, has been more flexible on the issues. That's a pretty easy thing to do when you claim John McCain has only flip-flopped on offshore drilling.
Seeing that the entire US News research team must have called out sick today, here is a freebie from your friends at C&L, Bonnie:
1. Bush tax cuts.
2. Jerry Falwell and the religious right
4. Public financing - Opting in, then out, then in again
5. Windfall profits tax on oil companies
8. Estate tax
What a sloppy and shoddy piece of "journalism" from someone who claims to have been covering politics since "God was a baby" -- or since John McCain was a teenager.
