And the Roto RINO Rudy Rooters here on FR want me to vote for this POS?

If you don't like my views, don't vote for me.

Regardless of which side of the issue you're on, he has the guts to state his position even though it will cost him votes. I find that pretty refreshing.

With his numbers dropping like a rock, Giuliani has already resorted to his “tough talk”. Of course, it’s with a lisp.

>>The Republican presidential frontrunner Thursday reaffirmed his support for federal funding for some abortions, a position which puts him at odds with many conservatives. <<<

Federal funding? If you’re going to hack up a kid, why should the rest of us be forced to foot the bill? Especially given the moral objections over the matter.

Talk about a complete lack of consideration for the populace...

I really hope a Thompson or at least a Romney overtakes this guy. He’s good for NYC, but I frankly don’t want him running the country.

You see, even though many conservatives don’t like him, as a Republican (a-hem) he is still presenting with this statement better ideals than Dhimmicrats.

A Dhimmicrat would never utter a statement like this because they are thinking all the while, “if you don’t like me, tough. I’ll steal the votes from somewhere to nullify your vote against me.”

That said, not a good way to garner support, Rudy.

Usually candidates wait until after the primary before they flip off the base. I guess Rudy’s decided to start early.

Of course he did not say "take it or leave it". That's CNN's language.

"If that's real important to you, if that's the most important thing, I'm comfortable with the fact that you won't vote for me," the former mayor said.

Memo to Rudy: It's not only your stance on abortion that alienates conservatives. It's also about your gun-grabbing, pro-homo, pro-illegal alien, and liberal fiscal positions.

There’s information at this FR thread:

Giuliani Defends Pro-Choice Stance “….."I tell people what I think. I tell them (to) evaluate me as I am and do not expect them to agree with me on everything. I don't agree with me on everything," Giuliani said. "If that's the most important thing, then I'm comfortable with the fact you won't vote for me."…..”

Looks like Secretary of Commerce at best; maybe Labor. That’d be a laugh! He busted the mob unions in New York.

It’s all out in the open now, Rudy is trying to drive the Religious Right, the gun owners, and the other social conservatives away from the GOP. It is not his intention to run a good campaign, but to destroy the Republican Party. He must be stopped.

Can’t decide if this is a gutsy move, or a stupid one! Either way, he’s not getting my vote in the primaries, and now I have his permission. Cool.

“Well, personally, I think armed robbery is despicable. But, if my neighbor wants to commit armed robbery, that’s fine with me.”

If I have to chose between Hillary and Rudy, I’ll hold my nose and vote for Rudy(but it won’t be pleasant).

I have to admit, I like this attitude better than the Mitt Romney, lifelong experience as a hunter, claim.

That said, I will vote my values and not Rudy Giuliani’s.
