After securing the presidential nomination by the Democratic Left and moving toward the political center, Obama has reversed himself on everything except abortion, homosexuality, raising taxes and opposition to off-shore drilling for oil. To date, his flip-flops include welfare reform, de-criminalization of marijuana possession, NAFTA, Cuba trade embargo, gun control, immunization of telecommunication firms involved in FISA, troop withdrawal from Iraq, faith-based charities and God knows what next. His liberal media backers cleverly describe this as “re-calibrating” his positions.
He broke a pledge with McCain to abide by the restrictions of public campaign financing upon realizing that he could raise more money by breaking this commitment. When McCain accepted his challenge to debates, he backed off after sensing that McCain will do better in a town hall meeting format.
In his book, “The Audacity of Hope,” Obama wrote, “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.”
This explains these flip-flops.
All these speak to Obama’s lack of character and show him as a double-minded person. James 1:8 in the Bible says that a double-minded person is unstable in all his ways. The U.S. presidency requires stability, a trait Obama appears not to possess.
