Who "flip flops"?

I wish the mainstream media would address the following statements with the individuals who made them. The following are all quotes from when President Clinton was committing troops to Bosnia:

Governor George W. Bush (R-TX):
"Victory means exit strategy, and it's important for the President to explain to us what the exit strategy is."
April 9, 1999

Rep Tom Delay (R-TX):
"You can support the troops but not the president."

Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA):
"[The] once again releasing American military might on a foreign country with an ill-defined objective and no exit strategy. He has yet to tell the Congress how much this operation will cost. And he has not informed our nation's armed forces about how long they will be away from home. These strikes do not make for a sound foreign policy."

Senator Trent Lott (R-MS) :
"I had doubts about the bombing campaign from the beginning...I didn't think we had done enough in the diplomatic area."
[on "Late Edition"]

There are even more more Republican comments of interest... and more. Another essay, "Yankee Go Home: Who's leading the anti-war movement? Congressional Republicans" dated May 7, 1999, discusses in depth the comments being made by Republicans when President Clinton was addressing the situation in Bosnia.

Perhaps we should contact these individuals and ask them to explain their change in thinking? You can write letters to them at . Write letters to the editor for your local papers and THEIR local papers as well. Let their constituents know about how they "flip flop". We MUST start speaking out!
