Obama Will Have More Flexibility After the Election – As Will Romney After Nomination

The Flexibility To Betray Us?

Much as Democrats can’t wait to point out the “Etch-a-Sketch” tendencies of Mitt Romney, Barack Obama has similar problems, and another example arose when he told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that he(Obama) would have more flexibility after the election.   What he means is that it will be easier to get away with selling out American interests, since he’ll never be forced to answer to voters again.  Of course, as you can tell, Obama already thinks he has this election in the bag, and there’s really no getting around the fact that if he is re-elected, he will have free reins and many expect he will extend his executive authority to rule without reference to Congress.  It points out the reason that character matters, as politicians promise one thing in campaigns, and deliver another afterward, but it’s not only Obama about whom conservatives should worry on this basis.

It also tells us something important about the minds of politicians.  The positions he will take before the election will have no bearing on his actual policies afterward, translating the remark.  That’s an egregious instance of Obama bragging about effectively lying to the American people.  Republicans have a similar problem in their own party, where Mitt Romney’s Communications Director openly admits that the general campaign is like starting over, and he likened their flexibility to an “Etch-a-Sketch.”  This has precisely the same meaning as Barack Obama’s remark, leading me to wonder why any Republican would choose Mitt Romney over the others.  If they find this attitude and conduct disgusting in the behavior of the President, but not in the campaign of Mitt Romney, one must wonder why.

We all recognize that Barack Obama will try to hide his radical side through the coming election, but as bad as that is, our own nomination front-runner is currently doing the same thing to us.  I have no problem with those who wish to point to Obama’s duplicity based on this and other statements, but if we accept Mitt Romney as our nominee, aren’t we falling for the same thing we decry in Obama?
