flapping in the wind
From Newsweek, International Edition
Consider the sentence below.
For Brazil it could be the difference between finally taking off and merely flapping in the wind.
Question 1) What does "flapping in the wind" mean in this context?
Question 2) In general, what does the expression above mean?
Question 3) May I use it in a sentence like that 'Dale is flapping in the wind?'
