That's actually just a list of reasons someone has found not to trust Walker. You weren't going to vote for him anyway.

Hopefully, you will sell your message of distrust to other Democrats and you will all stay home in 2016.

Wait...I thought Romney was the biggest flip flopper. Both can't be.

Don't bank on that, we have been outnumbering the Republican vote for the past two elections, and this election will be no different.

Do you remember the MANY Republicans at their convention in 2004 holding up flip-flops to try to characterize Kerry as a "flip-flopper?"

Oh, NOW, when it is YOUR candidate, flip-flopping is seen as the "mature" thing to do for "people with a brain?"

How convenient.

Did you make the same defense of Kerry in 2004?

Kerry was a bit different. He was for something before he was against it.

I know little about Walker except he drives some people of a certain political persuasion bat **** crazy, as evidenced in this thread.

Walker has a lot of people to lie to. That takes a lot of flip flopping.

Yet, their own presumptive candidate, Hillary Clinton, is embroiled (as she always has been) in so much scandal and controversy that she ought to be declared "unfit for any office." She is a consummate liar, flip-flopper and cheat. What do the Lefties on C-D say? Silence. Instead, focus on Walker and Cruz. But, of course. What would we expect?
Actually, the tighty righties are on to Walker now also.

Mitt Romney was labeled as a flip-flopper because he changed his position on abortion (another issue Walker has received grief about lately) in advance of running for president in 2008, but Walker is making Romney look like a model of consistency.

That is why Walker's lies and flip-flopping is no longer working for him. In WI, Walker was able to hoodwink most of his base by making statements that are ambiguous as his skills in political speech have deepened, he’s grown more ambiguous., side-lining accountability to the legislature “Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said this week that he will sign right-to-work legislation if it gets to his desk.” or exaggerating Governor Walker’s so-called property tax relief bill in a Special Session. Although the bill reduces property tax by $100 million statewide, taxpayers in the Mercer School District will get $1 in tax relief. .

The national stage and press is more sophisticated which is why Walker is now hiding from the press and not taking questions (Sarah Palin incarnate).

Also, we have this thing going in the U.S. called freedom of speech. If what I post about Walker doesn't worry you, why do you complain?
I didnt at all suggest you shouldnt be allowed to create stupid threads that embarrass you, please do, it just shows your true colors.

An Obama supporter, complaining about flip flopping, the irony cant be beat..

ps, you have no freedom of speech on a privately owned web site. Continue to embarrass yourself by making such dumb comments if you must.
