Changing Your Mind/Learning From Mistakes = BAD!

That brilliant linker of news items journalist Matt Drudge has this up today-

John Edwards gave a campaign speech yesterday on foreign policy in which he reiterated his position that the 'war on terror' is a political buzzword, which poorly describes the real situations that we face in the world.

But Matt Drudge did some Googling and found a quote from Edwards over five years ago in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 when emotions were running high and everyone short of Russ Feingold and a few House liberals would've probably voted to suspend the Constitution if George W. Bush had asked, and therefore has exposed... something.

Oh, I know! The same secret they exposed about Sen. Kerry in 2004. People change their minds over time as new facts come to light and as circumstances change! OMGZ!!11! Oh, if only John Edwards could be resolute like George W. Bush and other Republicans like Mr. Drudge who made a series of bad decisions and choices years ago and, refusing to change their minds, have spent the years since propping up those failures in a web of lies and spin.

Thank you Matt Drudge for exposing the truth about Mr. Edwards' political and intellectual growth.
