Be sure you keep track of all of them, k?
>> It’s a stupid myth believed by stupid people.......The belief that Giuliani is the only candidate who can beat Hillary.......... ranks right up there with belief in Bigfoot.
I have a hard time seeing Hillary as the most threatening Democratic candidate - you don’t even see incumbent Presidents elected with 50% negatives much less first timers.
Rudy , with policies not that different from Hillary, is more dangerous because he lacks her high negatives and shares her main advantage - enormous fund raising. With everybody rejecting public financing you can’t just limp into the general - you need a giant stash.
Add in the front loaded primaries this election the money may be a bigger factor than ever before.
The problem for conservatives is that not one of the front runners who can raise that kind of money is actually gonna represent conservatives.
We need a break.
“Hannity is 1. A Conservative Republican.”
He is a ratings whore who placed all of his eggs in the partisan republican basket. He is a cosmetic conservative and also slave to political correctness....a total lightweight, but (admittedly) usually chooses to support and showcase whatever is popular with Conservatives. A decent guy, with the gift of gab and a very limited repertoire.
But he jumped on Giuliani’s bandwagon as soon as it appeared and now he’s stuck with supporting this liberal.
“....shares her main advantage - enormous fund raising.”
A lot of that money is Democrat money in drag.....they’re plenty nervous about hilliary and don’t see obama as a real possibility so they’re hedging their bet.......they would be quite satisfied if not happy with rudee as prez if hilliary loses
Last I heard, he was with your other hero, Mojo.

That ought to open up some kind of strategic opportunity...
Can you imagine conservatives being so confident about getting a conservative Republican nominee that they have the time and money to maneuver a conservative into the front runner on the Democratic side too?
That might be a dream but it would be damn arrogant too.
And since its the pro choice people doing it, there ought to be a way to take advantage of that arrogance.
As JimRob famously posted---first Hillary's gotta get past us.
This has to go down as the most paranoid Thread in the history of FreeRepublic.
And if Rudy is the party's nominee, by not voting for him, you in effect vote for the Hillary/Hussein Obama ticket. Nice Going, you really proved your point.
What is amazing and really sad, is the number of "true" conservatives that will in effect give the election to the dims just to "Stand on Principle".

Thank you. I used to like Sean when he REALLY used to be humble (instead of claiming he is). His Rooty worship is nauseating. It’s a shame.
What if your party is being taken over by a bunch of people who don't support the mission and charter of the party and they're helping someone who opposes the majority of the party's charter to hijack the party?
Reagan also said:
"We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all."I'm just showing those who can't subscribe to the core principles of the party, those who appear to have the same goals as our opposition, the door.
--Ronald Reagan, 1965
"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers.
I do not believe I have proposed anything that is contrary to what has been considered Republican principle. It is at the same time the very basis of conservatism. It is time to reassert that principle and raise it to full view. And if there are those who cannot subscribe to these principles, then let them go their way."
-- Ronald Reagan, March 1, 1975
BZZZZZZZZTTT!! Another well deserved zot!
Good. Dave S was another annoying pro-abortion loser. He will not be missed.
Personally, I don’t mind if deb stays. She seems a few cards shy of a full deck, if you know what I mean.
Merely an opinion. I think Rudy handled himself well during 9/11 and understands the threat. How that translates into foreign policy is only a guess at this point. Not a Rudy fan but I do believe there are those who are hanging on to the Rudy wagon until a more conservative one comes along.
I think that candidate is on the way, and his name is Fred Thompson.
