51. uncomfortable/unwilling/unable to defend their party
Of course, during the later parts of the Bushco years, that was mainly republicans. During a democratic administration, you're likely to see a rise in the number of democrats using that dodge. It isn't always about "lying" my experience it is about not wanting to be identified with the current "hot" topic and perhaps have to discuss that topic. For instance, during Clinton's administration, I know people that avowed "independence" just because they didn't want to talk about blow jobs. I know a lot of liberals on this board have mixed feelings about identifying with the Democratic party.
