I don't see anything wrong with it. Decisive has many meanings, one of which is "Characterized by decision and firmness."

I don't know. I'd rather take my time to think things through, than be decisive and make the wrong decision.

decisive doesnt mean making rushed decisons, it means having the ability to make a decision and be consistent with your feelings and actions. When they say Kerry is not decisive, whether you agree or not with that assertion, they mean that he changes his positions for political reasons.

When will conservatives start admitting that their people in Washington are just as politically minded as the democrats are. Do you really think that Bush landing on the aircraft carrier when the major part of the hostilities in Iraq were supposidly over wasn't made for political reasons?

I have seen, on rare occasion, conservatives praising democrats for changing their decisions on major issues - it's funny though, because when someone changes their position to one that's in agreement with yours, they're "following the will of the people" rather than "being indecisive."

No one is saying that the Republicans dont do political things, they are in fact a political party. But Kerry has clearly made huge changes in order to make it look like he is very different than Bush. If Edwards said the same things he said before he was running about Saddam, such as "imminent threat", "would go to war even without un support", "world cannot be safe untill Saddam is removed", they would not have a chance to be elected.

I understand what you are saying but the Democrats do have the excuse that things have certainly changed since then.

Xiggi, Your little smiley face does not disguise your intent to muddy the waters. Kerry is not a flip flopper and the republicans look silly when they keep bringing it up. The only purpose in continuing to bring it up is to influence uninformed voters. And unfortunately it works. If your candidate and party were so sure of themselves, they and you wouldn't need to make such immature remarks.

Xiggi and others:

Please do not use attention getting devices in your headlines, Headlines are not the place for smileys, all-CAPS,***********, or whatever else comes to mind. Instead, think of a headline that is descriptive of your post AND contains keywords that a search engine would likely pick up. Thank you.
