A much smarter move than putting a liberal Republican in the White House...
and don’t forget the RON PAUL following, (who in my opinon) is being funded by moveon as to distract from the GOP.
No lessons learned from Perot
No question Rudy would get smoked with a pro-life 3rd party candidate in the race. But it’s a moot point, because Rudy ain’t gettin the nomination. The bloom is off the rose and the polls that count those most likely to vote in the pubbie primary show it clearly. No way a gun-grabbing, pro-abort, cross dressing northeast liberal wins in the primaries. The liberal press is already fantasizing about such a possibility but it will never be more than that, a fantasy.
It's not new. It's the Republican party pre-Reagan, very small, liberal, and out of power.
We have plenty of pro-life candidates — today. What about yesterday?
This is precisely the scenario I have been warning about for at least six months.
Giuliani, in addition to (and because of) being unacceptably liberal, cannot win.
If Rudy wouldn’t give that to us by now, he certainly won’t later. Plus, Roe is way too important to him to take a chance that it would be overturned.
Easy. Guili can be restrained by his party and the party's members. What you will see is no action on abortion for 4 or 8 years if Guili gets elected. It’s more of a prevent defense until the next election when you will have the opportunity to elect someone more to your liking.
Hillary will have no such restraints. If she gets it it will be open season on abortion legislation and judges. IF the dems continue to have a majority in both houses, you can kiss any progress you’ve made on your issue for the last twenty years goodbye.
Guili will keep things in stasis, Hillary will be pedal to the medal. Take your pick.
Reminds me of how R's got so mad at Foley and Hastert last October Suprise that they sat out the election.
They were mad at homosexuals...so what did they get?
A Speaker from gay San Francisco!
Voting for someone that supports the slaughter of the unborn and the homosexual agenda is not only sinful, but STUPID.
If the Republicans abandon the pro-life position -- which they will be doing if Giuliani is elected -- the pro-life movement is essentially dead in both parties.
Get a brain.
Apparently not, as Rudy’s still in the running, and there are still faux Conservatives willing to vote for him if he gets the nod.
You are 100% correct that Perot gave us Bubba...but, should the GOP abandon it’s pro-life platform and nominate are pro-abort, the majority of pro-lifers will stay home.
I have said for YEARS in my FR postings that the pro-life GOP voters are NOT a majority of the GOP, but that the GOP cannot win without their 28% (28% was my estimate of the GOP vote percentage they represent....now this poll backs up my estimate).
For the pro-life voter, it would voilate the very core of their being to vote for a pro-abort canidate in any party.
The liberal press has EGGED on the GOP to be more “moderate” and “tolerant” by offering a pro-abort canidate...when your ENEMIES encourage you to be more “inclusive”, you can bet that THEY understand that it would be the kiss of death for the GOP.
The BLUE BLOOD GOPers also want the GOP to adandon this “family values” stuff....I hope this poll shows them the peril if it does....the GOP is the REAL big tent...pro-life and pro-abort are in its’ ranks...but it takes BOTH to win.
I have very few political illusions left at this point in my life. Once the Party finds it can field pro-abortion candidates with no consequence to them at the polls, you’ll find a lot more waffling on the issue to appeal to the so-called “moderates”. You can bank on that.
“No lessons learned from Perot.”
I think the Perot voters learned their lesson, the problem is fewe of them were pro life Christians, who will make the same mistake then regret if for 8 years as the Perot voters did.
I’m one of that 27%.
I won’t vote for a baby murderer for president.
Actually, every poll showed Conservatives came out in pretty good numbers. It was the middle that hated things most.
Our reward for all that loyalty and hard work? “Here’s Rudy, worship him or the terrorists will kill you!”
A Democrat would fill the administration with abortion advocates.
Much as many dislike Rudy, he will have liberals in his administration...sure.
But he will also appoint MANY conservatives to high positions. There would be a fight in his administration against him going too far left.
Not so with Hillary.
