If your candidate doesn't publicize their position on any given issue

Or needs to poll test before they take a position, or has changed positions 5 times a decade, you should probably refrain from bashing candidates who have held the same positions for 40 years.

1. When the only way you can publicize your candidate ...

2. Thing is that candidate you insist should not be bashed

Lists a sum total of three issues on his website, leaving out many issues important to the American electorate. If you were to take your own advice, you wouldn't mention any other candidate.

As for the same position for 40 yrs. America has changed a lot over that time period. I sincerely hope you're not serious about that because that would be worrisome.

7. Yes there is that. But it's also not holding your finger to the wind

When staking out a position.
The cliche goes, you've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything.

11. I dint understand the assumption.....

 

....that the best candidate is one that doesn't take the pulse of its constituency to make sure their representation is accurate.
