Of course all politicians are guilty of pandering, at least to some extent. However, we are talking about members of a particular party that have
raised pandering to the level of an art, or is it a science with them? For example, does McCain change his accent when talking to different groups
like we have video of hillary doing? Come on, you have to admit this does not leave a warm and fuzzy feeling (and we all know libs love to base
decisions on their feelings) in your gut. And, OMG we have video of O(bs)ama saying he won't wear a flag pin, but now we have video of him wearing
one. Some dem obviously stuck a wet finger in the wind and found out the previous comments turned a lot of people off. And since not supporting our
flag is O(bs)ama's true belief, that means he's basically been caught lying in order get votes. Case closed.
So, before you try to disagree, look at what makes up the democrat party, a patchwork of special interest groups. So, it should come as no surprise
that in order to gain the support of all of these groups dem politicians have to go to each of them and promise something different and sometimes
conflicting with their previous promises. The best they can hope for is that no one pays close enough attention to say, "Hey, wait a minute ...".
This has worked for them fairly well in the past, however, the trouble for dem politicians now is the internet age, where people can easily paste
together samples of their pandering and show it for what it truly is.
Watch for this to be highlighted after hillary is handed the nomination in an "upset".
