Of course. It is politics. Everyone wants to take down their competition. Tell us something profound.

So what you've proven through all of this, is the GOP has standards and dont like when candidates flip flop, while the Democrats have no standards and make excuses while celebrate it taking place..

What I have proven through all of this is that Scott Walker flip-flops so much, he has earned his Eagle Scout badge for flip-flopping!

Chalk up yet another Weather-vane Walker flip-flop!

In 2013, Walker touted his state's LGBT protections. Now, he's lending support to Indiana's odious anti-gay law

Actually that link is about Weathervane Walker's latest flip-flop.

Quote:
The latest Walker flip-flop comes amid the political firestorm over Indiana’s anti-gay “religious freedom” law, which would allow businesses and individuals to refuse services to LGBT people on religious grounds.
Quote:
Gearing up for a difficult 2014 re-election battle in a swing state, Walker lauded his state’s non-discrimination protections for LGBT people in a 2013 interview, arguing that the state’s ban on marriage equality coupled with such protections struck a “healthy balance.”
Quote:
Walker is now lending his support to Indiana’s discriminatory law. Asked for the governor’s position on the measure, Walker press secretary AshLee Strong told CNN on Sunday, “As a matter of principle, Gov. Walker believes in broad religious freedom and the right for Americans to exercise their religion and act on their conscience.”

I agree, what is the point of running a campaign on issues if the candidate immediately changes his/her mind after being elected?

Walker cannot hold a candle to either McCain or Romney in the flip-flop department.

Then why didn't the Democrats win anything in 2014?
