There he goes again

Another reversal for Barack. And this one’s a doozie:

Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on Thursday backed off his firm promise to withdraw combat forces from Iraq immediately and instead said he could “refine” his plan after his trip to Baghdad later this month.

Earlier, a top Obama adviser had said that the senator is not “wedded” to a specific timeline.

Obama told reporters in Fargo, N.D., that he is “going to do a thorough assessment.”

“When I go to Iraq and I have a chance to talk to some of the commanders on the ground, I’m sure I’ll have more information and will continue to refine my policies,” he said, according to CBS News.

So now he is hedging on one of his primary campaign promises. Interesting timing on this as well — right at the end of the workday before a holiday weekend. Folks are less likely to be paying attention to the news and bloggers will not be as active.

Oh but we’re taking notes, Barry…
