An About-Face, Obama Style

Barack Obama, courageously, on October 3, 2007, according to

You know, the truth is that right after 9/11, I had a pin. Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we're talking about the Iraq War, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security, I decided I won't wear that pin on my chest.

Instead I'm going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism.

And Barack Obama on May 13, 2008 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, according to The New York Times:

Sure enough, Mr. Obama, wearing a flag lapel pin for the second day in a row, walked out of the building to the announcement of Mrs. Clinton’s victory and headlines calling it a blowout.

One day, "a substitute for true patriotism." Seven months later, standard attire. Sounds like typical Washington politics to me- oh, wait, that's what Barack Obama criticizes.
