NOT BAD… Obama Only Has 7 Major Flip Flops At First Debate


Barack Obama managed 7 major flip flops in 90 minutes at the Ole Miss debate on Friday September 26.

1.) Barack Obama said he “immediately and forcefully” condemned Russia for invading Georgia.
Not true- Here’s video proof–


The Real Revo put this video together.
Obama misrepresents his response to the Russian invasion of Georgia:
(1 minute 43 seconds)

Obama is not telling the truth. He did not immediately, forcefully, condemn Russia for invading Georgia.
Not at all.

2.) Obama said Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger supported his plan to talk with rogue regime leaders without preconditions.
Then Obama tried to parse his words suggesting that “preparations” were the same as “preconditions.”
Not true- Henry Kissinger responded immediately after the debate:

The Weekly Standard Blog reported:

Henry Kissinger believes Barack Obama misstated his views on diplomacy with US adversaries and is not happy about being mischaracterized. He says: “Senator McCain is right. I would not recommend the next President of the United States engage in talks with Iran at the Presidential level. My views on this issue are entirely compatible with the views of my friend Senator John McCain. We do not agree on everything, but we do agree that any negotiations with Iran must be geared to reality.”

3.) Obama said he supported offshore drilling.
Unlikely– Questions remain.

During the primary Obama was against offshore drilling.
In August he said he may change his mind.
CNN reported:

He would be willing to compromise on his position against offshore oil drilling if it were part of a more overarching strategy to lower energy costs.

4.) Obama said he supported nuclear energy.
Not true– His preconditions make it impossible to expand nuclear energy at this time.

From The Wall Street Journal:

On nuclear power, Sen. Obama says he’s open to expanding nuclear energy, which now provides 20% of the nation’s electricity, as part of an effort to increase power sources that emit little or no carbon dioxide. But he also has said there is no future for expanded nuclear energy until the U.S. comes up with a safe, long-term solution for disposing of nuclear waste. He opposes the Bush administration’s plan for storing waste at Yucca Mountain in Nevada.

5.) Last night Barack Obama said he was in favor of missile defense systems.
Not true- Here’s video proof–

Obama was clear about his opposition to “unproven” missile defense earlier this year in his ad!

Cuffy Perfunction posted the video clips:

Great job on the video by the way!

6.) Barack Obama said “No soldier dies in vain.”
That’s a flop.

HotAir reported on how Obama shamelessly contradicted himself of troops dying in vain.
In Barack Obama’s antiwar speech in 2002:

Nor should we allow those who would march off and pay the ultimate sacrifice, who would prove the full measure of devotion with their blood, to make such an awful sacrifice in vain.

7.) Barack Obama says he supports the middle class.
Not True- Barack Obama has voted at least 94 Times for higher taxes during his three years in the U.S. Senate.
Barack Obama voted for increasing taxes on individuals earning as little as $31,850:

“Under both Democratic plans, tax rates would increase by 3 percentage points for each of the 25 percent, 28 percent and 33 percent brackets. At present, the 25 percent bracket begins at $31,850 for individuals and $63,700 for married couples. The 35 percent bracket on incomes over $349,700 would jump to 39.6 percent.”

That’s not support for the middle class!
Oh… And, most Americans don’t support infanticide, either.

Meanwhile… The liberal media has to really nitpick to find a McCain exaggeration.
