New RNC Video Highlights Obama's Iraq Shift
"You're not going to agree with me on 100 percent of what I think, but don't assume that if I don't agree with you on something that it must be because I'm doing that politically," Obama told voters.
The GOP has produced a Web-only video however that's designed to demonstrate how Obama has shifted his position on the Iraqi "troop surge."
"Obama's Iraq Problem: Change That Works For Him" starts with video clips of Obama stating his opposition to the surge and his support of a 16-month withdrawal schedule. It then uses statements by Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.), Sen. Joseph Liberman (I-Conn.), and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) stating that the surge is working. It ends with a clip of a July 3 press conference where Obama is asked if he's shifted his position on his 16-month timetable of withdrawal. Obama laughs nervously, but his final answer is not shown.
This is not the first video of its kind, and as both Obama and John McCain shift positions on issues, it will not be the last.
