Following is a transcript of Mayor Giulianis address today to the SC GOPs executive committee in Columbia, South Carolina, with regard to the mayors judicial philosophy:
"On the Federal judiciary I would want judges who are strict constructionists because I am. Im a lawyer. Ive argued cases in the Supreme Court. Ive argued cases in the Court of Appeals in different parts of the country. I have a very, very strong view that for this country to work, for our freedoms to be protected, judges have to interpret not invent the Constitution. Otherwise you end up, when judges invent the constitution, with your liberties being hurt. Because legislatures get to make those decisions and the legislature in South Carolina might make that decision one way and the legislature in California a different one. And thats part of our freedom and when thats taken away from you thats terrible. President Bush has the great model because I think as the President he did appointed (sic) some really good ones and both of them are former colleagues of mine - Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito. Justice Scalia is a former colleague of mine. Somebody that I think Chief Justice Roberts is a great chief justice and hes young and he can have a long career and thats probably the reason the President and Vice President chose him. I think those are the kinds of justices I would appoint Scalia, Alito and Roberts. If you can find anybody as good as that, you are very, very fortunate."
I dont know how the mayor can say it any more clearly than that.

How would he square such appointments with his pro abortion views?
((((( PING PING PING )))))
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.
Thank you much! Received the same thing in email. The campaign is busy even on Saturday. YEA!
Where does this "Strict Constructionist" stand on the 2nd Amendment?
Looks like you're not on the ping list. :)
I wonder why I'm not receiving email. I signed up for it. I'll do it again.
The bots will swallow anything said in their determination to maintain power. As for the GOP platform, its a document made of wax i.e. it'll conform to whatever is shoved within its borders.
That's a start.
And he's prolly gonna win the general election...and go on to define the enemy and victory itself.
But wait, hasn't Bush defined the enemy...Yup...Islam is the religion of peace.
Hasn't Bush define victory...yep....well, nope.
But let's keep on fightin.
Ping. It's starting up again
"Rudy will appoint strict constructionist Supreme court judges.' Yeah, right.
Who cares about islam...let's stop abortion. Hey, dude, git your paws off my gun.
"Where does this "Strict Constructionist" stand on the 2nd Amendment?"
This is almost impossible to believe and it sounds like
something from Kerry's play-book.
Nice try Rudy, but were not the Left drinking from the Koolaid fountain.
Well, that does it. Bye bye, troll.
