Nice Flip-Flops Mr. Bush

Mr. Bush, seems to me like you are sporting some pretty nice flip-flops, at least as far as the Plame leak is concerned . . . 
From what I can tell, on September 30, 2003 you said, "If there is a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is.  And if the person has violated the law the person will be taken care of."

Then on June 10, 2004 you were asked if you would fire anyone who was involved in leaking Wilson’s name, and you answered "yes".

On July 18, 2005 you seemed to change your answer a bit.  When asked a question about the leak inquiry you said, "If someone committed a crime, they will no longer work in my administration."  That seems to be quite a different approach from your committment to firing anyone who was involved in the leak.  Now the bar gets set a bit higher, and they have to have committed a crime?

That sounds to me like you are flip-flopping on this issue.  That you stated your position, and now, when it’s obviously to your favor, you are changing your position.  Perhaps you should take a look back at the issues on which you accused Kerry of flip-flopping.  You might discover that for Kerry it may have been a case of modifying one’s opinion on an issue as more information was gained, and that in your case it’s a clear example of flip-flopping to cover the wrong doings of your own staff.

Tell ya what though, those flip-flops suit you . . .
