Skip to comments.Giuliani or McCain: Both are bad choices (window dressing and a criminal)
Posted on 02/13/2007 6:53:59 AM PST by IrishMike
Many of you have hearts that are still a-flutter after watching the recent Rudy Giuliani love-fest on "Hannity and Colmes." But I implore you, do not be fooled by the packaging lest you forget we fooled ourselves in 2000, and apart from that candidate's appointment of John Roberts to the Supreme Court, his intractability pursuant to the war on terror and an overall good economy we now have someone who refuses to halt illegal immigration and has abandoned border guards who should have received medals of valor for stopping illegal Mexican dope smuggling criminals, but instead received 11 and 12 years in prison. Rudy is no conservative he is a liberal Republican. As mayor of New York City, Giuliani was an anti-gun, social liberal, fiscal moderate , who rid Times Square of prostitution and pornography and significantly curbed crime.
Rudy is window dressing in an empty house. ..................................................
John McCain, on the other hand, has been little more than an impediment from the beginning. He was one of the principle lawmakers involved in the "Keating Five" a congressional scandal related to the worst savings and loan collapse in history. It was reported that he, along with four of his congressional counterparts, attempted to undermine and influence the Federal Home Loan Bank Board, which is responsible for regulating the banking industry, during its investigation of the Lincoln Savings and Loan collapse. It was also revealed that McCain and his counterparts had collectively received at least $1.3 million in campaign contributions from Charles Keating, the former chairman of said savings and loan, who was faulted with its failure.
To ensure that the voters never again have the ability to have such criminal activity revealed, or be reminded of same before the offenders are elected, McCain co-authored the McCain-Feingold Act

So is Slick Romney. Hunter 2008 is the only good choice.
Duncan Hunter has my vote. I also am watching Newt. I would like to see a Hunter/Gingrich ticket.
GO DUNCAN HUNTER!!!
World Net Daily Crap
Hunter, yes - no to the other two you mention (Brownback and Huckabee.)
Good choice and viable choice are not always the same thing. We shall see.
I do recall a survey on FR taken 8 years ago that somehow manage to declare Alan Keyes as the "consensus" candidate.
Rudy G is a good no nonsense leader but he is liberal on many issues. McCain is suspect and temperamental but is right on many key issues.
I'm still waiting for specifics from each candidate, and what's wrong with Mitt Romney? There's time to sort all this out, but Hilary Ain't getting my vote.
I firmly believe that Hillary is most scared of Giuliani and would fall to her knees rejoicing if McCain were nominated.
Surely you jest. Alan Keyes is a knucklehead.

Hillary's Secret War
The Clinton Conspiracy to Muzzle

making Bush the bad guy for not moving to overturn a jury's decision in the Boder Patrol case is symtomatic of the lunatic fringe on the conservative side.
One can believe in a pardon, notwithstanding the facts, without believeing it is a litmus test for the Presidency.

I did and that is how I found out about FR.
I like the book but Jim's words at the front impressed me.
Rudy ISN'T even a 'republican'.

Secret study cited "weirdness factor" among candidate weaknesses
Rudy is a DEMOCRAT POSEUR!!!
