In a series of YouTube videos, the Rick Perry campaign is highlighting what they see as the many flip-flops of their rival, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison.

One episode highlight's Hutchison's vow to not serve more than two terms in the US Senate. In 2006, she broke that vow, saying she "still supports term limits but would also not bind herself unless senators from other states also left after two terms.” That caveat was never given back in 1993, though.

 

Another episode deals with earmarks, her statements that all earmarks should be transparent, and her refusal to release her own earmarks.




The latest episode deals with conflicting statements regarding Hutchison's desire to help Republicans. She once promised to “work her heart out” for Republicans, but also said she would not support any candidates running against Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein, one of the most liberal members of the Senate.
