If you put your hand into the fire you will be burned. If you immerse yourself for hours with no source of air you will drown. If the Republican Party nominates a liberal candidate it will probably lose and Rudy is a liberal candidate.
These are facts of life. There’s no point in arguing about them. You can raise the specter of Hillary as President and promise an entire parade of horribles. It won’t make any difference. A large number of voters who might vote for a normal Republican won’t vote for Rudy and they are impervious to argument. He is therefore as weak as any candidate the Party is likely to choose. This is reality. You can turn you back on it if you chose, but if you do it will bite you in the butt.
Are you sure you addressed your reply to the right poster? I didn't intend to argue with anyone, and I thought I made it quite clear where I stand on Rudy being nominated.
If I didn't let me try again. In short, I think it would mean Hillary as our next president, and that would be an unmitigated disaster for both the Republican party and the nation. Furthermore, if by some miracle Rudy were to win the general election it would be a somewhat less complete but still significant disaster for the US, all conservative Americans, and the future viability of the GOP. Is that clear enough?
