All Obama Statements Come With an Expiration Date

Yep, all of them. The title is from Jim Geraghty's NRO post from November of last year.

This time around, it's amazing how much reversal Obama has done in the last few months (reversals which will have dramatic impact on our nation).

Pointed out from the blog Small Dead Animals:

Obama at Buchenwald, June 5: "This place teaches us that we must be ever-vigilant about the spread of evil in our own time, that we must reject the false comfort that others' suffering is not our problem, and commit ourselves to resisting those who would subjugate others to serve their own interests."

Obama in Cairo, June 4: "So let me be clear: No system of government can or should be imposed upon one nation by any other."

Or slightly different quotes at Gateway Pundit:

"Preventing a potential genocide in Iraq isn't a good enough reason to keep U.S. forces there."
Barack Obama
Sunapee, N.H.
June 20, 2007
"The international community has an obligation, even when it's inconvenient, to act when genocide is occurring."
Barack Obama
Dresden, Germany
June 5, 2009
Today's reversal is about Mirandizing jihadis on the battlefield, reading them their rights, as if they're arrested by police officers.

Jack Tapper pointed out that Obama flatly denied that this would happen, all the way back in...March of this year:
In March, President Obama told 60 Minutes that "the whole premise of Guantanamo promoted by Vice President Cheney was that somehow the American system of justice was not up to the task of dealing with these terrorists. I fundamentally disagree with that. Now do these folks deserve Miranda rights? Do they deserve to be treated like a shoplifter down the block? Of course not."
