per Politico, Obama already found the excuse to take back just about all his campaign promises

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said in an interview aired Tuesday that the cost of the mortgage bailout plan may rein in his ambitious plans for health care, energy, education and infrastructure.

This is a blank check flip-flop:

“Does that mean that I can do everything that I’ve called for in this campaign right away?” Obama said. “Probably not. I think we’re going to have to phase it in. And a lot of it’s going to depend on what our tax revenues look like.”

I guess it moves to the top of the flip-flop list

It should go in history as the fastest a politician reneged on ALL his promises

Adding McCain’s ad summing it up: More taxes, no leadership

This amounts to Obama renouncing the entire Democratic platform.

Which makes sense as some already noticed, he’s been separating himself from the party right from the start

and as Papau commented to this entry, he was never going to implement anything anywau

In Feb on the Larry Kudlow show on CNBC his chief economic adviser told Larry that Larry should have no worries the deficit increases caused by all those proposed social programs costing money with no increase in taxes. He said there would be no increase in the deficit from Obama’s programs because “We do not expect them to pass”. Larry saw the error the Obama spokesperson had made in revealing “just campaign talk” as the Obama slogan, and looking surprised immediately changed the subject – because NBC wanted an Obama win over Clinton.

“We’re going to have to make some priorities, we’re going to have to cut some things out,” he said, referring to expensive goals such as improving health care, schools and college affordability.

“I’m going to be in some fights with my own Democratic Party in getting some of that done,” he said.

Still making pledges – CBS called him on the cost

Without question, the Barack Obama infomercial served as a very slick and powerful recitation of the biggest promises he’s made as a presidential candidate. But the very bigness of his ideas is the problem: he seems blind to the concept his numbers don’t add up.

Obama has already proposed a new stimulus package of $188 billion over two years. His tax cuts will cost $85 billion a year. His “army of new teachers”: $18 billion; Renewable energy: $15 billion. CBS News and various independent experts estimate Obama’s total first year spending could exceed $280 billion.

Still Obama repeated his claim he can find the money to pay for every proposal.
