What would they take back?

Asked what they would have done differently, Sen. Clinton said she would take back her vote supporting the war in Iraq. "I've said that many times," she said.

Sen. Obama said he regrets not taking action when he first arrived in the U.S. Senate and Congress got involved in the case about removing feeding tubes from Terry Schiavo in Florida. "That's an example of when inaction can be as costly as action,'' he said.

Now that the debate is over, Hillary wishes she wouldn't have agreed to release her tax statements.
Bill is going to have a fit; he thought this issue would be swept under the rug.

So what did Obama say he would have done other than "taking action"? Sounds like another meaningless statement as recounted.

So the only thing Obama regrets is a "sin of omission"?
Dang, he is a saint!

Typical democrat - doesn't want to protect the American people.

Flip - Flop

Queen Hitlery: Should I protect the American people today? Flip - Flop. Hmmm...Not today!

On the Shiavo bait:

Obama takes a chance at humility and gets torched. I can't see why you wouldn't give him the benefit of the doubt. Are all people unreasonable who struggled with this topic and the dilemma it presented? And to cover the dilemma in my mind, when does the spouse's decision get made? Or does everything revert back to the womb or mother? Those who claim the parent's wish, circumvent the husband's and whether you like this particular guy, it has repercussions in legal precedence. And if allowed to be simplistic, the womb argument is the same as those abortion advocates use.

It usually isn't tough for a Democrat to vote for someone to die, as long as they did not commit a crime. They are all about abortion an euthinasia, so the innocent Ms. Schiavo would have been in good company. Now, if she were a murderer, rapist, drug dealer, or child molester, he would have wanted to keep her on publicly funded life support until the sun exploded. Obama, like a good liberal, is at least consistent. Consistently bad, but consistent.

Hey dude. Obama is regretting his "inaction." Thus he would in hindsight revisit the issue. You don't seem to understand when you say he's the same on what you describe liberals as being like.

As for the term liberal, which I call myself. I think a liberal takes the cause of those who are powerless, underrepresented, and non-influential. You seem to agree with your vile that criminals are in this category. And I think unborn babies are too. So if you're pro-life welcome to my side.
