Change we can believe in when we see it

Gabriel Malor over at Ace of Spades points out a bit of, er, clarification from the Obama camp on the disposition of the prison at Guantanamo Bay and the detainees currently held there.
This morning he was for closing Guantanamo Bay, and having the detainees face criminal charges in U.S. criminal courts, courts using the Uniform Code of Military Justice, or new, specially created national security courts. This evening, he has backtracked yet again.

One hand doesn't know what the other is doing so we end up with many conflicting statements. Mr. President-elect has to keep "clarifying" the positions his subordinates keep releasing on his behalf. It's almost like he has no leadership experience whatsoever.
Heh...indeed. Gabriel cites other examples of squishiness in Obama's agenda, so read the whole thing.

Maybe Obama's ego and constant need for adulation will paralyze him and the best case scenario is he simply does absolutely nothing for the next four years.
