by Damozel | At Democrats.com, Bob Fertik finds it 'worrisome' that that Obama needed 'two press conferences today to clarify his position on Iraq.' However: he agrees that everything Obama has said is consistent with his previous position. He makes a good point about Obama's campaign, Republican tactics, and the general laziness of the media:
I hope Obama understands the powerful dynamic that's at work: when he flip-flops on one issue [FISA], Republicans and their Corporate Media allies will try to portray every policy "clarification" as another flip-flop, so they can paint him as another John Kerry.
The Corporate Media doesn't care that John McCain holds the Guiness World Record in flip-flops, including Bush's tax cuts, immigration, torture, and off-shore drilling.
