White House or Waffle House?

ht_choi_scan_090512_mnIt’s becoming increasingly disturbing to the democratic base that Obama is repeatedly waffling (flip-flopping) on so many of his campaign promises.  His recent blocking of over 2000 abuse photos (after saying that he would release them) joins many other decision reversals.  Where’s the transparency??  I can’t see it…  What about his “no one is above the law” statement?  Maybe I missed the fine print that said that didn’t include the prior administration….  Closing Guantanamo?  Oops, gonna need more time on that one….  Military tribunalsare halted!!  But now maybe they’re ok after all…  Add these to his promises for universal health care, immigration reform, troop withdrawal, and about a dozen others, and it’s starting to look like the “change we can believe in” is his change of mind.
Now, I realize that some of these decision reversals make sense.  I want a president who can think on his feet and make good decisions for our country.  One recent waffle, however, makes no sense at all.  Remember when he promised to repeal the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy of the military?  Guess he hasn’t had time yet…  In the meantime, Lt. Daniel Choi, a graduate of West Point, twice deployed to Iraq, founder of “Knights Out” (an organization to advocate for gay and lesbian soldiers), and Arabic Linguist has been fired for publicly admitting he’s gay, along with over 12,000 other troops, 54 of whom were also Arabic Linguists.  Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t we NEED guys who are fluent in Arabic?
There’s a debate going on as to whether or not we need to keep water-boarding as one of the tools in our arsenal to keep our country safe.  I’m not so sure of that, but there’s one thing I AM pretty sure of.  You can water-board these guys over 183 times and make them confess to the kidnapping of the Lindberg baby or the Sharon Tate murders if that’s what you want, but you can’t make them say it IN ENGLISH!!!
