I am just pointing out what he said.
I'm wearing my nukular-resistent pajamas.
I just can't see it happening.
In fact, the entire proposed group of GOP nominees could use a personality injection, IMO.
I wish Rick Santorum or George Allen would come out of hiding.
Well we will see if his polls are consistent. So far they are.
Their threats that we will leave the GOP does not bother me. Fine... let them do what they have to do as their conscience dictates. Let's see them find a candidate to appease them.
I will vote for Duncan Hunter but vote Republican in the general election. I will do whatever is necessary to defend the White House from the dem nominees.
President Hilary Clinton
Computers - how did we ever get along without them?
You seem happy enough with those results; November 2008 should be orgasmic for you.
Some people never learn.
The Republican Party WILL lose the White House without the support of the "whining idiots".
The liberal and moderate republicans would rather see Hillary in the White House
than a Tom Tancredo.
Well I suspect that since Hunter has been in office that long, he's had all the charisma he's needed to get elected in his district. Now, it is different - he needs to appeal to a broad base & now that he has declared himself a candidate - we will see if he is up to the job. I'm rooting for him - we need someone of his caliber in charge.
Im pro-choice. Im pro-gay rights, Giuliani said. He was then asked whether he supports a ban on what critics call partial-birth abortions. No, I have not supported that, and I dont see my position on that changing, he responded. Source: CNN.com, Inside Politics Dec 2, 1999 http://www.ontheissues.org/2008/Rudy_Giuliani_Abortion.htm
ANDERSON COOPER 360 DEGREES (November 14, 2006)
RUDY GIULIANI (R), FORMER MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY: I'm pro- choice. I'm pro-gay rights.
KING: Giuliani supports a woman's right to an abortion, and back in 1999, he opposed a federal ban on late-term abortions.
GIULIANI: No, I have not supported that, and I don't see my position on that changing.
KING: Immigration could be another presidential landmine. Back in 1996, Mayor Giuliani went to federal court to challenge new federal laws requiring the city to inform the federal government about illegal immigrants.
JEFFREY: He took the side of illegal immigrants in New York City against the Republican Congress.
KING: Giuliani opposes same-sex marriage but as mayor, he supported civil unions and extending health and other benefits to gay couples. He also supported the assault weapons ban and other gun control measures opposed by the National Rifle Association.
GIULIANI: I'm in favor of gun control. I'm pro-choice.
Republican Big-Wigs Support Pro-Abortion Event in NY
Pro-abortion Governor George Pataki and New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who also supports unrestricted abortion, are co-chairs of the 2000 Choice Award Presentation to be held on May 30 at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City. The event is sponsored by the Republican Pro-Choice Coalition, a group that is campaigning for the removal of the pro-life plank from the Republican National Platform.
Not only is Rudy pro abortion, he particularly loves partial birth abortion. Even some of the "women's reproductive rights" crowd don't defend that practice.
Gee, another liberal throwing his hat into the ring. (Sigh)
I know it. Hooked. That's what we are.
UMMM IF HE WINS THAT MEANS EVANGELICALS AND SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES VOTED FOR HIM!Right. And we wont.
Tuesday, June 20, 2000 MAYOR GIULIANI AND SPEAKER VALLONE ANNOUNCE CITY LAWSUIT AGAINST GUN INDUSTRY
Nor will those who value the Constitution.
LOL.....well, I said it was small but vocal!
It's good to see you admit you're advocating Hillary.
As Tom Bevan of RealClearPolitics has pointed out, Rudy is an adherent of the same approach to illegal immigration that John McCain, Ted Kennedy, George Bush, and Harry Reid have championed:
"While McCain has taken heat for his support of comprehensive immigration reform, Rudy is every bit as pro-immigration as McCain - if not more so. On the O'Reilly Factor last week Giuliani argued for a "practical approach" to immigration and cited his efforts as Mayor of New York City to "regularize" illegal immigrants by providing them with access to city services like public education to "make their lives reasonable." Giuliani did say that "a tremendous amount of money should be put into the physical security" needed to stop the flow of illegal immigrants coming across the border, but his overall position on immigration is essentially indistinguishable from McCain's."
That's bad enough. But, as Michelle Malkin has revealed, under Giuliani, New York was an illegal alien sanctuary and "America's Mayor" actually sued the federal government in an effort to keep New York City employees from having to cooperate with the INS:
"When Congress enacted immigration reform laws that forbade local governments from barring employees from cooperating with the INS, Mayor Rudy Giuliani filed suit against the feds in 1997. He was rebuffed by two lower courts, which ruled that the sanctuary order amounted to special treatment for illegal aliens and were nothing more than an unlawful effort to flaunt federal enforcement efforts against illegal aliens. In January 2000, the Supreme Court rejected his appeal, but Giuliani vowed to ignore the law."
If you agree with the way that Nancy Pelosi and Company deal with illegal immigration, then you'll find the way that Rudy Giuliani tackles the issue to be right down your alley.
Rudy will prolly take 40 states...he'll get the big ones..PA...FLA...OH...and with Arnolds help..who is kicking ass in the polls prolly even CA.
I don't see Hillary picking up one red state.
I think I see what your problem is; you can't count.
