    Issues that Barack Obama has changed his mind on over the last week.

    * He was against granting immunity to telecom companies that aided our government in eavesdropping on telephone messages to and from known terrorist operatives overseas. Now he is for granting this immunity to the evil telecom corporations.
    * Some time ago Obama said that he wholeheartedly supported the ban on the private ownership of guns in Washington DC. Then, after the Supreme Court came down with their ruling last week, suddenly Obama is a supporter of the people's right to keep and bear arms.
    * Earlier this year Obama said that he was going to accept public financing of his presidential campaign after the convention. Now that he has seen he could get more money from private contributions than he would from public financing, he changed his mind.
    * NAFTA? Barack was going to immediately renegotiate all of the evil NAFTA treaty. Now ... well, let's just say "not so much."

    * Obama once said that the issue of gay marriage should be left up to the state. But now he opposes a California ballot measure that would ban same-sex marriages.
    * Obama once opposed the Republicans (later adopted by Bill Clinton) welfare reform plan, calling it "disturbing." Now he embraces it.
