Obama's Moveon.Flip-flops

Barack Obama is getting a jump on July 4th by adding old-fashioned appeals to patriotism in his campaign speeches, though his rhetoric does not square with his voting record.

For example, Obama criticized for its full page ad in the New York Times last year that called General David Patraeus "General Betrayus." Obama, however, refused to vote in favor of a Congressional resolution that condemned the ad.

Likewise, though his "major speech on patriotism" attacked, Obama has not disavowed's nationwide bake sale drive held last week to raise funds to elect him.

And Obama added to the body count under his campaign bus by disavowing comments by General Wesely Clark, who said that John McCain's military service did not qualify him to be commander-in-chief.
