Wishy washy, flip, flop, flip flop, wagging, we’ve seen them. I’ve used them. Candidates are wishy washy on abortion or they flip flop on tax cuts. There is certainly room for change due to personal growth or new knowledge. That type of change seems a desirable characteristic in anyone. I am speaking of those who change their position to suit the situation, or to gain the most from a situation. I’m speaking of people who often choose their stance like a piece of clothing. Let’s see, I think pro-choice goes good with these pants. Or what about candidates who suffer from SAS (sudden accent syndrome)? What’s up with that? Well I read a new one today that is pretty darn exciting.

It is already widely covered that John McCain has done rather well in New Hampshire. But how’d he do dat? A Seattle Times article sheds some light.

He also modulated his position on immigration, telling voters he had heard them and would make securing the borders his first priority.

I like modulation. It is just sound sooo much more scientific that flip flop. But this one wonders if he will also modulate his position on other issues. Then I might wonder if a candidate prone to frequent modulation, in fact has any position at all? And who wants a President that modulates? I most certainly don’t.

This is all part and parcel to why I support Fred Thompson, he is not prone to frequent modulation.

    Wally, you went from the pan to the fire using Thompson’s lawyering as a replacement for his credibility. The oxymoron phrase “accomplisheed attorney”
    tells it all. I can see you are a closet Hillary fan. Y

    Amen Wally,

    I keep getting impressed by Thompson. I’m behind him totally now.

    It seems you spend much more time spewing around the internet than you do actually taking in any facts. Please, at least read a little before embarrassing yourself like this. If you even bothered to skim Wikipedia, you would know that Fred Thompson was an accomplished attorney and involved with national politics for almost 20 years prior to his first acting role. His role in conservative politics including his run for presidency is entirely consistent with his career.

    Fred Thompson? Another actor looking for the ultimate drama gig. Come on, get
    real. We already did the actor as president thing. It doesn’t work. How could we believe an actor is being real and not just playing a part? Talk about your modulation. The presidency doesn’t come with a script.

  5. Thank you so much, Wally.

    As for flip floppin’ is it amplitude modulation or frequency modulation?

    Looks like sudden Accent Syndrome Lady will continue to perform…
