Bush is a Flip-Flopper

(With a tip of the hat to Atrios for the flip-flop statement), Froomkin's take on Bush's Nat'l Security approach:

"Bush's history with intelligence-related proposals includes more than a fair amount of nuance -- and some outright reversals.

First, the president resisted the creation of a Homeland Security department for months before enthusiastically championing the idea.

Then, he opposed the creation of the independent 9/11 commission itself. He said Congressional intelligence committees could handle any needed investigations.

Once Bush allowed the commission to form, his aides repeatedly fought its requests for witnesses and documents.

Finally, when the commission issued its report, his aides said he would not rush to accept its recommendations.

Now, 11 days later, he comes out with a qualified endorsement."

This nation demands a leader who stands on principles, not a Conservative Flip-Flopper who is well outside of the mainstream!
