Is Obama about to drop his longstanding promise to end the war in Iraq in 2009 if elected?
Today certainly must have been a distressing day for Obamatons who had concerns about his flip flops on so many issues lately, but thought they could count on him to withdraw in Iraq.
"Refine My [Iraq] Policies"As Allahpundit points out, this isn't the first time Obama has fudged on Iraq. And it's got his lefty base of defeatists worried that the worst flip flop of all is about to fall.

“I’ve always said that the pace of withdrawal would be dictated by the safety and security of our troops and the need to maintain stability. That assessment has not changed,...And when I go to Iraq and have a chance to talk to some of the commanders on the ground, I’m sure I’ll have more information and will continue to refine my policies.”
Readers may recall that Obama refused to pledge to have all U.S. troops out of Iraq by 2013 in the September, 2007 debate. Is he now about to flip back to that earlier flop?
Is this the "change" that the Obamatons so desperately want to believe in? Or is it the unmasking of a charlatan who successfully bamboozled and dazzled millions into believing he was something new: a politician they could trust?
It will be interesting to see the reaction from liberals like Political Overload, who are already on edge about Obama.
Hope After Obama
For Dems disgusted with Obama flip flops, there is hope. They can join this happy bunch, as they build a wildly energetic nationwide movement.
That's change you can believe in.
