Flipflopper or just a liar for political expediency?

Bush used to oppose budget deficits. Then, as he was trying to pass his 2003 tax cut, he said they didn't matter.

Bush said that he believed our foreign policy should be "humble" and we should not go around "nation-building." We now have a doctrine of pre-emption and pax Americana in Iraq.

Bush was against the McCain-Feingold campaign financing legislation during the 2000 campaign, but then he signed it.

While serving as governor of Texas, Bush was against a bill of rights for HMO patients, and tried to veto it. Then he tried to take credit for it during the 2000 campaign trail. Thean, once in office, he killed it.
