Desperate times, desparate measures.
I disagree with some of his stances. But I think the single biggest issue we are facing right now is the War on Terror. I would rather vote for a canadate who I think would do well on the biggest issue we are facing then to get someone who might be 100% in line with my views but not as capable a leader in the War on Terror.
I'd back him.
I agree that the War on Terror triumphs every other issue at this time and someone like Rudy would be just as strong as GWB in this respect. I may be wrong but Rudy is also pretty much fiscally conservative so that is a big plus as well to keep this economy rolling.
This is exactly why he'll never win. The number of voters who actually think this so-called "war on terror" is the single biggest issue is pretty small -- and is comprised almost entirely of Republicans anyway.
Illegal immigration? Crickets chirping...
We are not going to win this war if our borders are a free-for-all.
War on Terror is getting to be old news and wearing quite thin as an issue. It's been abused and overused; seems like every political election manages to bring in elements of war on terror if only as background, from local dog catchers to city commissioners to governors etc.
We'll still be at war with terrorists fifty years from now and if we're to enjoy some semblance of normal life, we better start paying attention to issues other than yesterday's "political hoola-hoops"!
Just wondering: What makes him a more capable leader than, say, Allen, Brownback or Santorum?
