Dems Can’t Stop Flipping

We’ve seen the Democratic politicians “flip-flop” quite often over the past few years. During the 2004 election, flip-flopping became a major issue in the campaign . . . and, John Kerry was its poster boy. More recently, we’ve seen virtually the entire Democratic Party practicing the flip-flop over travel reporting irregularities. Like lemmings collectively running for the cliff, they rushed to hang House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) out to dry. When the investigation became more widespread and Dems started coming under scrutiny, they became strangely silent. They had already toppled over the cliff and were in free-fall.

The flip-flopping issue highlights the Dems quest for revenge and reelection over political integrity. Yesterday, Brit Hume offered another example:
New York Democratic Senator Charles Schumer — who says White House adviser Karl Rove may have committed a crime when he identified Ambassador Joe Wilson’s wife as a CIA agent — voted against the law he says Rove may have violated. In 1982, Schumer, then in the House, was one of only 32 congressmen, all Democrats, to oppose the Intelligence Identities Protection Act, which made it a crime to out covert U.S. intelligence agents.

What’s more, seven years later, Schumer criticized a new Justice Department policy to prosecute federal employees who leak certain kinds of information, telling the Los Angeles Times at the time, “I am worried that this policy is so broad it could easily be abused.” — by Brit Hume, The Political Grapevine

Ironically, the visual image of a fish out of water comes to mind with the term “flip-flopping.” This image seems appropriate, as well, in the political sense. The Dems gasp for their political breath — mindlessly reaching for and latching on to any issue they think may either resurrect public confidence in their party or slime an opponent.
