Obama ‘Flip-Flops’ outselling ‘Waffles’…

What images do ‘Flip-Flops’ immediately bring to mind? Open toed shoes? A fish out of water struggling to get back in? No…but close. How about the President-Elect Barrack Obama?

“A gay-activist newspaper in Chicago has discovered that President-elect Barack Obama supported same-sex "marriage" during his run for the Illinois Senate in 1996. Conservatives and liberals alike seem irritated by the flip-flop.

In 1996, Outlines newspaper, which merged with Windy City Times in 2000, surveyed candidates for all levels of elected office. Obama's answer was very clear: “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.”

Wait, therrrrre’s more!

* His recent acceptance of Roland Burris, his Senate successor, whose appointment he initially opposed.

Annnnnd, just when you thought it couldn't get any better, we bring back these classic oldies:

* “Readjust the time-table in Iraq”

* “President-elect Barack Obama is not planning to implement a windfall profit tax on oil companies because prices have dropped below $80 a barrel…”

I know what you are thinking, where’s the number? Who can I contact about the incredible ‘Flip-Flops’?!?! We bring you one more...

The grand-daddy of all ‘Flip-Flops’:

* “I want to be realistic here -- not everything that we talked about during the campaign are we going to be able to do…” said, Barrack Obama, during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” program.

Let’s hope he keeps at least one, for his daughters sake. Last reports have Obama narrowing the all important cabinet position search for a “White House Dog”.

(Biden is already occupied as VP…and now is not the time for a Michelle joke)
