Geez Colin, how about at least taking a decisive stand for one of first times in the political aspect of your career. At least I could have an ounce of respect for that. But you don't vote for Obama, then make proclamations about how most Americans "want" more and more taxes and more government in their lives, and then claim to be a republican! Talk about trying to walk both sides of the fence, which is something I can't stand. In my view, you're basically a liberal democrat these days, so why not embrace it? Or, if you truly do have views that are both on the left and right, then start calling yourself an Independent. But own up to whom you are (whomever that might truly be) and stop it with the incessant fence-straddling and turncoating which has very much become your calling card. It's getting very old, man.
