Obama was against commissions before he was appointing them

When Obama was campaigning he was against commissions.

He mocked his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, for suggesting a commission study the Wall Street meltdown, saying, "We don't need a commission to tell us how we got into this mess, we need a president who will lead us out of this mess, and that's the kind of president I intend to be."

Since he has taken office he's appointed 24, roughly 1 a month. Another flip-flop? Thoughts?

  • – collapse
    The cause of the Wall Street mess was well known and needed not so much a Commisission of Enquiry into causation as measures to ensure it would not happen again and legal action to prosecute those suspected of fraud and not using due diligence.

    As to the President's Commissions, I know insufficient about them to venture an opinion . But he never said he was against all Commissions, just the one you cited in the post.

    Nothing wrong with that ........you are just soliciting more Obama-bashing from your friends to add to your points .

  • Which is worse? Commissions headed by hand picked Obama cronies? OR Obama making the inquiries?

  • Everyone knows that Obama's words have expiration dates. Surely he can't be expected to be held accountable for something he said as a jr. senator during the campaign three years ago.
