Skip to comments.The Gathering Storm Against Giuliani (Known Pro-Life Activists vow to oppose him in the GENERAL)
Posted on 03/28/2007 8:14:18 AM PDT by TitansAFC
Here's a heads up for the Giuliani campaign. It's coming. It's coming very soon. Beware. Run for your lives! As I write this, there is plotting going among grassroots religious conservatives in New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and many other states. They want to take down Rudy and they plan to do everything in their power to do it. I received this email from an influential Republican activist who, lets just say, has an extensive mailing list among the conservative grassroots network. Here's what he told me:
"If Rudy Giuliani is put up for President by the Stupid Party, I will work 40 hours a week as a volunteer to destroy his candidacy for President; that is how important the prolife position -- and other social issues-- is to many people of faith. Sure, the Evil Party might get control of the White House again, and the Stupid Party might therefore go the way of the Whig Party in the early 1800's, but so be it. The Republican Party must NEVER nominate a pro-abortion candidate. That would be far worse than the Republican Party putting up a pro-slavery candidate in the mid-1800's. That is how strong many of us feel David. Many of us will also be putting in 40 hours a week during the primary/caucus season to defeat Giuliani at all costs."
Tough words. Don't think for a second that these activists aren't serious. They are. They know Rudy is getting some traction from social conservatives and they are not going to take for granted that Giuliani will fade once his views are known. As these activists galvanize, they could star in a movie.
I sure am. I'd much rather lose than have Rudy win. I know that I am not alone.
Had to happen, as I've said all along.
The alternative is for America to be stuck with two evil parties, and no conservative party.

A few months ago, I thought I could vote for Rudy, but not McVain. Now I think the opposite is true. I don't see McVain driven to abuse power. I do see that tendency very strongly in Rudy. Rudy also seems to believe he is above the law. Combine the two, and IMO he would be a very dangerous man to have in the Oval Office.
"Rudy also seems to believe he is above the law."
Replace "Rudy" with "Bush", "Cheney", "Rove", etc., and your quote could have come from the progressive democrat book of talking points.
Another election when the big thinkers are working to defeat republicans.

I agree. I thought I'd never vote for McCain, but now I see there are worse alternatives. Giuliani is scary in the same way Hillary is although he's not as shrill.
And if anyone here thinks the statements you see there at the top of this thread are harsh, just remember that gun rights advocates are even MORE zealous over their major issue than the pro-life folks are.
Not that I'm a huge Rudy fan or anything, but you'd rather have "Evil" (as admitted to by this email) run the country than "Stupid"?
Sorry... but this just proves how "Stupid" this composer of this email is.
We see what ceding control of the Congress has done for us. I thought the Republican Congress was inept and out of control (spending wise), but the Democrats promise to show us a whole new level of insanity as we've seen in the last few months since they were "throned".
Maybe some day we will have 60% conservatives in Congress and Reagan reincarnated as President.
But until then, you can bet that Planned Parenthood is going to get more and more dough from Ms. Pelosi and Ms. Clinton (or Mr. Obama). And your taxes will go up. And you will have more pork and a bigger welfare state. Perhaps the Fairness Doctrine will rear its ugly head again. Cut and Run from every part of the globe. Our troops will get the shaft (more like dagger in their backs). Terrorist acts against those of us who are Born, as well as those who are Unborn. Allowing all of that is just plain Evil IMHO.

Dude, seriously - if it's Rudy, I'm with them.
There is no victory with Rudy running the GOPp - none. Zip, zero, nada.
I never thought that McCain could look better. But I must agree with you.
Except for the fact that Rudy HAS acted above the law quite often.
He defied a court order to end NYC's sanctuary city policy.
He carted off his official records away from public access, in defiance of the law.
And he released a police shooting victim's juvenile records without a court order.
He shows the same contempt for open records laws as the Clintons. And also shows the same propensity to make illegal use of what should be confidential records to attack opponents.
I believe you are confusing the Log Cabin Republicans with Conservatives.
Log Cabin Republicans campaigned AGAINST Bush in 2004.
Log Cabin (Republicans) need to account for where they got the money to fund the $1M ad campaign against President Bush in 2004 in key battleground states. This is a Federally-regulated organization (IRS and FEC rules apply!), but they have never documented where this money came from.
Yes. There are a number of very good reasons to oppose Giuliani.
