Flip Flopper!!! Flip Flopper!!!

Bush has just once again the worst thing an American politican can ever do, change their posistion on an issue. In the wake of the 9-11 Commission's Report, which proposed a cabinet level intelligence chief, the President proposed creating a post that mirrored the Commission's recommendations, but which would have denied the intelligence head almost any real power. Now President Bush is willing to grant a new intelligence director with budgetary powers. Man, with this guy you don't know whether he is coming or going!

Questions of consistency aside, Bush is still in the wrong on the merits. Even FBI Director Robert Mueller, who would actually lose some power under the commission's plan, supports implementing creating a strong intelligence czar like the one the
9-11 Commission suggests.
