Surprising Video: Mitt Attacks Someone For Flip Flops

Before gaining his own reputation as a “flip flopper”, Mitt Romney was calling out John Kerry for being one, himself.  Pot, meet Kettle in this week’s “surprising video”.

For someone who seems to know so much about accusing people of flip flopping, it seems surprising that Mitt has let himself be strung up by this very same tactic, himself.  What do ya’ll think?  Is this irony?  Poetic justice?  Or is Mitt just not very good at dealing with his own PR?

As always, you can let us know in the comments below or Facebook.

Obama Scolds Big Tobacco – How Ironic

In what has to be the largest show of chutzpah yet, President Barack Obama had some “less than pleasant” words for cigarette makers. He spoke in a new White House web video, posted on the White House’s Web site Thursday, November 17, 2011, to coincide with Thursday’s 36th “Great American Smokeout” by the American Cancer Society. Said Obama on the video, “Some tobacco companies are fighting new cigarette warning labels because they don’t want to be honest about the consequences.” He says the country has made progress in reducing the number of Americans who smoke, but added that 46 million are still addicted.

“The fact is, quitting smoking is hard,” he said. “Believe me, I know.” Obama has fought the habit by chewing nicotine gum, and his last medical report, issued October 31, 2011, said he was tobacco-free.

Companies, led by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. and Lorillard Tobacco Co., sued the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in August, 2011, to block the labels, arguing the labels promote anti-smoking advocacy. A federal judge granted a preliminary injunction in November, 2011, blocking forcing tobacco companies next year to put graphic images on their cigarette packages.

In the video, the Obama directs viewers to the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) website, which has links to resources that can help smokers quit and highlights government efforts to prevent young people from smoking.

BTW, this article (and its author) is neither a proponent or opponent of smoking. Its sole purpose is to highlight what a flip-flopper Obama has become.

But that’s just my opinion.

Lou Dobbs: Obama Is A Hypocrite Socialist

This weekend, Lou Dobbs was asked how he felt about our president’s huuuuuuuuge flip flop when it comes to dealing with congress.  When Barack Obama was the jr. senator from Illinois, he seemed to think the president (Bush) should not try to override congress.  Then he became president, himself, and decided he “can’t wait” to deal with congress, so he’ll just enact policies on his own. (without congress)  Lou Dobbs talked about this hypocrisy, and then he worked in a mention of “socialism” somehow. (gotta love Uncle Lou)

What do you guys think?  Is the president a hypocrite?  Is this all Bush’s fault?  Was Lou right to discuss socialism in this context?  And how much money should the Koch brothers being paying me, because I think they’re ripping me off.
