  • Will America’s mayor become America’s president? [WNBC/Marist Poll]

    Walkin Man to All
    Rudy is a democrats, democrat. The only difference between Rudy and Hillary is the R beside his name. look at his record....

    Pro-abortion - He opposes banning partial birth murder.

    Anti-2nd Amendment - supports gun grabbing legislation including the Brady Bill and the Assault Weapon Ban

    Pro-big government - amassed unprecedented debt as Mayor of NYC

    Pro-radical gay agenda

    - Attended and marched in every gay pride parade in NYC while mayor (even one in 1992 that included a NAMBLA contingent of pedophile activists)

    - Attends and supports many functions and fund-raisers held by radical gay organizations (even did a cross dressing act at Pride Agenda fund-raiser)

    - Openly opposes Constitutional Amendment to protect tradition marriage which is supported by President Bush and the Republican Party Platform.

    - Supported "domestic partner" and "civil union" bills in City Council while mayor of NYC.

    - Submitted Gay "Domestic-Partner" Rights Bill to City Council giving gay and lesbian couples the same benefits reserved for married couples.

    - Said, "I'm proud of it" when referring to the gay "domestic partner" bill he submitted. Said, "National Republicans can lump it if they don't like this new domestic-partners bill...I think it puts New York City ahead of other places in the country."

    - Has received awards from several radical gay agenda organizations who support gay marriage for his support of their cause. Is considered a "champion" of gay "rights."

    - Lived with a gay "married" couple in Manhattan when he moved out of Gracie Mansion during his second divorce.

    - Said that homosexuality is "good and normal"

    Pro-illegal immigration - said no one in New York City is going to assist the federal government with the enforcement of immigration law, sued Feds in 1997 to be able to ignore immigration law, lost in court, vowed to ignore law anyway

    Endorses liberal Democrat candidates over Republicans - endorsed liberal Dem Mario Cuomo over Republican George Pataki in NY Governor's race

    Ran for NYC Mayor in 1994 on Liberal Party ticket. Appointed Liberal Party State Chair to a Deputy Mayor position. Endorsed 3 times by the Liberal Party for his liberal views.

    Holds many other liberal views...

    Republican In Name Only - opposes many major planks of the GOP Platform

    Some people want Republicans to ignore his liberalism on almost every issue and, as a distraction, they try to pretend that Rudy is fiscally conservative. Again, his record shows that he isn't fiscally conservative either:

    According to an article in The Nation from 2002:

    It's now apparent that Giuliani purchased the city's good times partially with borrowed money and left his successor, Mike Bloomberg, holding a bag of debt. New York City went from a $3 billion budget surplus in 1998 to a $4.5 billion deficit after Giuliani left office. This mismanagement of prosperity is a big part of his legacy. Giuliani left the city's finances in a mess...

    Here are some things Giuliani did as Mayor that were NOT anywhere near being fiscally conservative:

    New York City went from a $3 billion budget surplus in 1998 to a $4.5 billion deficit after Giuliani left office.

    Added 25,000 government employees patronage hires to the city's payroll after promising to cut the work force.

    Giuliani's borrowing practices increased the city's debt burden by 50 percent.

    Partly because of Giuliani, New York City is now the biggest debtor in the nation outside of the federal government with $42 billion in loans outstanding.

    According to the article from The Nation:

    During the 1960s Giuliani was a self-described "Robert Kennedy Democrat." He identified with RFK as a liberal Catholic prosecutor. He volunteered for RFK's 1968 presidential campaign while he was a student at NYU Law School.

    Giuliani also voted for George McGovern in 1972.

    During the liberal 1960s, he was a liberal. But in 1975 Giuliani switched his party registration from Democrat to Independent when he got a job in Gerald Ford's Justice Department, according to his mentor Harold "Ace" Tyler.

    On December 8, 1980, Giuliani changed his registration from Independent to Republican. This was one month after Ronald Reagan's election, and just as he was applying for a top job in the Justice Department.

    So, to sum that up:

    Liberal Democrat until 1975

    Worked as volunteer for Democrat Robert F. Kennedy's presidential campaign.

    Voted for liberal George McGovern.

    Liberal Independent from 1975-1980.

    Did not register as a Republican until 1980 and only AFTER Ronald Reagan was elected and because he was applying for a top job in the administration.

    He's a liberal. He's not even in the same building as conservative. He's only a Republican because...and this comes from his own mother, Helen Giuliani:

    "He only became a Republican after he began to get all these jobs from them. He's definitely not a conservative Republican. He thinks he is, but he isn't..."

    And as John Hawkins put it in an excellent article in Human Events:

    Despite all of his charisma and the wonderful leadership he showed after 9/11, Rudy Giuliani is not a Reagan Republican. To the contrary, Giuliani is another Christie Todd Whitman, another Arlen Specter, another Olympia Snowe.

    He's a throwback to the "bad old days" before Reagan, when the GOP was run by moderate Country Club Republicans who considered conservatives to be extremists.

    Trying to revive that failed strategy again is likely to lead to a Democratic President in 2008 and numerous setbacks for the Republican Party.

    Because the only difference between a RINO like Giuliani and a demoRat like Hillary is the letter R beside Rudy's name.

    What party supports almost unconditionally a nation which murders Christians solely because of it being it's beloved trading partner?

    No doubt...our support of communist China in it's persecutions of the saints for the sake of the all mighty dollar is a vile abomination that this country will answer for someday.

    It also shows what the leaders of this country love, cherish and worship above all others!

    So I assume everyone on this thread that condemns the rat party will also be 100% against an abortion / gay agenda /anti gun lover like Rudy Giuliani getting the repub nomination for president, vice president or dog catcher.

    "We will stop the war when the [rocket] threat is removed..., our captive soldiers return home in peace, and you are able to live in safety and security," Olmert said, addressing the mayors of northern towns.

    Damn right and any country that demands Israel back down before the threat is neutralized is on the side of the terrorists, IMHO.

    The people that want to hire illegal immigrants are the same type of people who apologized for slavery or would have used Jews from concentration camps in Germany. No difference.

    I agree.

    They also would have been in the crowd of capitalists that Jesus drove from the temple with a whip.

    Why an Islamofascist terrorist front like CAIR is tolerated in this country after 9-11 is a question I would like answered.

    Ah! So Lebanon now shows its true face.

    No wonder it let a terrorist organization control the southern part of its country. How convenient, professing that they dare not confront hezbollah for fear of starting a civil war..HA!

    It was a smokescreen all along!

    Never trust a word that comes out of a Muslim's mouth!

    Now that its obvious that Lebanon is in bed with the terrorists, let them share the same fate as the baby killers they fight beside!

    The Vatican on Friday strongly deplored Israel's strikes on Lebanon, saying they were "an attack" on a sovereign and free nation.

    This statement makes me vomit!

    I suppose the Vatican and its ruler would like to see a prostrate and defeated Israel trampled underfoot by the jackboots of islamsist Nazis!


    This is the question every RC should be asking the leader of their church!

    Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich says America is in World War III and President Bush should say so.

    I'll believe that when the President starts up the draft again.

    Until the well-to-do in this country send their kids into the battle along with the economic draftees already there, its all a 'UN police action'.

    It is the duty of every believing muslim to convert us or destroy us.

    No doubt about it. Convert or kill...its in their "holy book".

    Every mosque in America is a terror cell waiting to explode. Will the USA wake up before its to late?

    Of course belonging to a killer cult that demands the gruesome death of unbelievers/Christians/Jews/you name it, never raised a red flag with his family, friends and co-workers.

    CAIR should be proud their propaganda is working.

    The family's Islamic minister, Gerald Muhammed, declined to comment about the religious aspects of Ford's life.

    I'm sure he briefed the mad dog killer about the 70 odd virgins he will get in paradise for slaughtering innocent infidels in the name of their 'god'.

    Same here. Extended basic plus roadrunner was well over 100 bucks a month here so I cut the cable TV part, had to keep RR though.

    The White House got Zarqawi.


    Which chickenhawk at the WH 'got' Zarqawi????

    Everybody knows the rich and their kids don't go into the military...especially in a time of war!!


    GW has two girls of draft age and a nephew also I believe...which branch of the US military are they serving in?????


    The poor and steadily disappearing American middle class kids in the USAF are the ones that sent Zarqawi straight to hell with a 500 pound, made-in-the-USA, big ass BOMB, and don't you forget it!

    You know the same folks GW has declared war on for his entire term!

    He knows this won't pass anytime soon. Noting but a smokescreen to try to distract the base while he and the Senate attempt to sell out the entire nation on the borders.

    You nailed it.

    Finally, while we Conservatives are extremely disappointed in so many areas and issues you have supported (or conversely not supported);and while many of us are criticize and condemn, we have NOT forsaken you or the Republican Party—which unfortunately, is the ONLY viable political party which closely reflects our views.

    Speak for yourself friend, not all conservatives and not me for sure!

    The Bush administration and the repub party lost me a long time ago.

    Now instead of doing the right thing, the constitutional thing, the thing GW swore on the Bible he would do...protect this nation from invasion...

    Our president will trot out the tired tactic of mis-direction with the anti gay marriage proposal.

    Not gonna fall for the dog and pony show this time repubs.

    Seal the borders and repel the illegal invaders or let the damn rat party take over. Maybe then any real conservatives left in the repub party will discover a spine and choose the USA over party!
