Sometimes I wonder what conservatives would do if faced with a candidate of their own who consistently flip-flopped on important issues, given the glee with which some folks on the right have attacked Democrats for flip-flopping on issues. I’m hoping to get an answer to my curiosity now that Republican Presidential hopeful John McCain has flip-flopped on the war in Iraq. After all, who can forget when McCain said he was fine with American troops staying in Iraq for a hundred, a thousand, or even ten thousand years:
But now McCain’s changed his tune, declaring today that the Iraq war can be won by 2013:
“By January 2013, America has welcomed home most of the servicemen and women who have sacrificed terribly so that America might be secure in her freedom. The Iraq War has been won,” McCain told an audience of several hundred here in the capital city of a general election battleground state.
So my question remains…will conservatives attack John McCain for yet another flip-flop on yet another key issue?
