She Who Must Not Be Named Gets Caught in a Flip-Flop

Posted by Ryan on September 27, 2007

In case you were wondering, She Who Must Not Be Named is an honest to goodness flip-flopper on the really important issue of torture/advanced interrogation techniques.  Last night in the New Hampshire Democrat debate she decided to rely on the MSM’s penchant for ignoring anything she has said before the moment she is in front of you.  Bad move.  Tim Russert was a little more shrewd when asking the field about the “ticking time-bomb” scenario, taking her to task about her previous statements on torture.

When pushed about the “ticking time-bomb” scenario she said in October that “if we’re going to be preparing for the kind of improbable but possible eventuality, then it has to be done within the rule of law.”  This happened to be her husband’s position, as well as her stated position until last night when O’Bama and Edwards got all lefty on her. 

So last night her new position was: “It cannot be American policy, period.”  No?  Not at all?  Even while the bomb’s ticking in an American city?  No Jack Bauer to call… period?  Boy, I sure want her to lead my country in a War on Terror!

Pandering?  Yes.  Caught in a flip-flop?  Yes.  Nice.  Now, will the Republicans run with this?  Who knows?  Maybe the Republicans will fear her like her opponents do or maybe they’ll seize the opportunity.
