IDENTICAL POLITICAL TWINS.

With different characteristics.

There seems to be a difference of opinion among the general public, as to whether to be hopping around from issue to issue is charismatic, for a person or a candidate, or not.

Socially and habitually, a man is supposed to be stable and not fickle minded, like a woman; although that can be dismissed of her as being part of her natural make-up (and not many women will admit to that).

The concern here is that a person's word, and particularly, a man's, must be his bond, and he must be level headed, otherwise handling even common domestic matters will be very strenuous for him.

For if he is a family man, the family will always be twisting in the wind, and there will be no actual peace in the house.

Of course not all men are the same, and they are not held mandatorily to lead or have the same lifestyles; and they will differ in so many ways as nature intends them to be or behave.

Even brothers or twins have their individual mannerisms, and Mom is first to take note of their differences, straight from the womb. Dad is always sitting in the living room, drinking tea or coffee and watching the news or a favorite program on television (and who can blame him).

The scene, as character or behavior is concerned, is being played in the modern day political contest of the Republican Party's nomination race; and that is what makes it more interesting.

One of the leading candidates is described by a friend as wavering on everything possible. He, the friend, says he "never seen a guy change his positions on so many things, so fast, on a dime,” (ABC News, 12/17/11); yet he seems to be the electable one.

The other, who is even the leader in the polls, is shown to bombastic in his ways; and even another candidate in the race has said that he is "condescending"; meaning he is pompous and outrageous.

However, his attraction is how he handles himself, being straight talking and bullish, when it comes to that. The only problem is that his personal life is a nightmare for a conservative, and he will not appeal to the general population in the political arena.

Two brothers, or twins, with separate characteristics; and so, which of them will be suitable to run on the conservative ticket? If that is not a dilemma for the political party they represent, then nothing is.

The reason being that one of the two will be facing off with President Barack Obama, who is making a second bid for the president of the United States; and who is clean cut and having no visible drawbacks.

It is bound to be hard, if not difficult, for the Republicans to bring up a match for Obama; and that is what a majority of American voters are speculating.

Identical political brothers or twins, because they are both conservatives. Hard to choose between them, isn't it?

A MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone; and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

The Rebublican candidates are all hopeless this election but I dont necessarily see changing your opinion as a sign that you are a bad politician or person, infact I would prefer an open minded leader who was willing to change his views if they became outdated than one who will cling to a position that now appears stupid or which he no longer truly believes.

wasip,

There are many variations in every walk of life. The thinking process base line begins in the growth environment and expands with maturity. Example, during the civil war brothers chose different sides despite relations. Labels as in democrat or republican are not programed (some are!) to have a shared party perception of what is right or wrong. A follower is weak and not recommended, on the other hand a person who retains their own thought process of reasoning are more capable leaders; right or wrong, it adds spirit to the union. Josak, has a good point.
