In politics, pandering is the term used to portray one's views to fit in line with a certain crowd of voters the candidate is attempting to impress, when often, these are not the candidate's true beliefs. A candidate may engage in pandering out of desperation if s/he is already losing a race, or if polls taken prior to an election show others as being in the lead.Apparently some Republicans down in the Fighting First are calling Congressman Walz a "panderer" for his hard work on Veterans issues.
When he is not raking up credit card debt, Walz is pandering to veterans and
shoring up his left flank by voting against initiatives that monitor terrorist
Interesting. Congressman Walz, as a 24 year military Veteran, has subject matter expertise on Veterans issues. He knows the lingo. He knows the military culture. He understands that soldiers and Veterans alike "suck it up and drive on", that they do not ask for assistance they are eligible for and deserve.
The attacks on Walz, by Republicans and right wing bloggers show their sheer desperation in CD 1.
Anyone have a few minutes to play C-SPAN's first reality TV Show? It's pretty easy really!
Pandering / Not Pandering?
Not Pandering, just creepy!
Pandering (she voted against the bill that provided these grants)
Not pandering, again...just creepy.
Not pandering...constituent services. An actual forum!
Desperation...but a great mentor to learn one's pandering ways!
We're not sure if Oda Silva has any connections to Brian Davis, other than he may be a supporter.
Pandering is sheer desperation. Davis pimping his resume citing medical school rounds at a VA hospital is pandering.
Working to pass great legislation which allows more Veterans access to their rightfully earned benefits is strong public policy.
Thanks Mr Silva! Should I ask the Walz campaign to send the contribution thank you to my place or yours?
