MSM: Obama ‘Puzzled’ and Confused Over Iraq Flip-Flop Controversy

Right now this is the top story on MSNBC, reported by Reuters no less.

Check out this picture that MSNBC used as a link to the video with the graying hair, dark circles under the eyes, and fowl expression.

ST. LOUIS - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said on Saturday his plan to end the Iraq war was unchanged and he was puzzled by the sharp reaction to his statement this week that he might "refine" his timetable for withdrawing U.S. combat troops.

"For me to say that I'm going to refine my policies I don't think in any way is inconsistent with prior statements and doesn't change my strategic view that this war has to end and that I'm going to end it as president," Obama told reporters on his campaign plane.

Obama, who based his drive to capture the Democratic nomination on his early and ardent opposition to the war, said earlier this week he might alter his plan to bring combat troops home within 16 months of taking office if conditions on the ground changed.
And the MSNBC headline: Obama 'puzzled' by furor over Iraq remarks

Yup, the press honeymoon appears to be over. If there is anything that the MSM hates more than a Conservative, it’s a slick-talking politician that ditches all of his/her "progressive" views and “moves to the center” in order to get elected.
Obama said he did not make a mistake with his earlier choice of words in describing his Iraq position — even though he called a second news conference a few hours after his initial comments to clarify his stance.

He laid the blame with reporters.

"I'm surprised at how finely calibrated every single word was measured. I wasn't saying anything I hadn't said before, that I didn't say a year ago or when I was a United States senator," said Obama, who is still a senator from Illinois.

"If you look at our position, it's been very consistent," he said. "I am unwavering in the belief that this has been a strategic mistake and that this war has to end. It would be a further strategic mistake for us to continue with an open-ended occupation of the sort that John McCain has promised."
What were you thinking Obama? Reporters are even more arrogant than politicians, and the MSM is in bed with your left-wing base, dummy. What happened in the back room in the dark of night? Did your corporate sponsors that "donated" millions to your campaign though proxies sit you down and tell you what was what, hmm?

And by the way, if you want to change something, change your diapers. Don't bitch whine and moan when the MSM figures out that you're nothing more than just another party hack that can give a good speech.
