Fighting the Causes of Flight (tags)

Mushy Center (tags)
In politics the tendency for candidates to move to the center when things get tough for them has become increasingly popular. The move helps them to side step and deflect heat coming at them from things that they have done or that have been done to them causing their popularity to wane. It also can appease a segment of folks that typically are not their constituency when members of their own base are looking at them unfavorably in hopes of making up lost ground regarding supporters. Come election time this can be especially important as it can help garner support. However, this still requires strong support from at least most of your base, and when they are fed up with a politician it is usually a good idea to get them behind that person to have not only guaranteed votes, but so as to look as if you are who you say you are. Bizarre schizophrenic personality shifts that try and say “I am no longer the person I was just four years ago” can seem – off.

Bush Doesn’t Want 4 More Years (tags)
When President Bush debated John Kerry last week in Florida, he basically told the American people: 1) I really do not want to be president for another four years, 2) I really do not know how to deal with the mess my administration has got us into, and 3) I can not sincerely defend the performance of my administration's past four years.
