How to Know When President Obama is Flip-Flopping

He will claim he has always been “consistent.”

SEN. OBAMA: I will make sure that we renegotiate, in the same way that Senator Clinton talked about. And I think actually Senator Clinton’s answer on this one is right. I think we should use the hammer of a potential opt-out as leverage to ensure that we actually get labor and environmental standards that are enforced. And that is not what has been happening so far.

That is something that I have been consistent about.

See previously Obama’s Kindergarden Candidacy, where we noted:

Obama and his team have already mastered the art of defending flip-flopping, by doing so completely devoid of any substance. It doesn’t matter what they said before or what they say now. They can be completely the opposite. But Obama and his surrogates will preface anything they say in response to this question with some magic words that get the little six year olds they think are watching to look the other direction. Whenever anyone challenges him for changing positions on an issue, he responds by saying, “What I have consistently said….” or “I have been very clear….” These phrases work like a charm on the members of the media who have drunken the Obamassiah’s kool-aid. “No, Obama has been consistent and clear! He doesn’t flip! He’s not going back on his promise to use public financing or get out of Iraq in 16 months or meet with terrorist-funding dictators without preconditions or be a member of a racist church or be friends with Scarlett Johanson!” They latch onto these magic words and start looking for the other droids they were looking for.
