Rudolph W. Giuliani scored a coup today by winning the support of Pat Robertson, who, as one of the nations best-known televangelists, could help Mr. Giuliani reassure Republicans who are wary of his support for abortion rights and gay rights.
Mr. Robertson, the founder and chairman of the Christian Broadcasting Network, said in endorsing Mr. Giuliani in Washington, that he believed the overriding issue before the American people is the defense of our population from the blood lust of Islamic terrorists and praised Mr. Giuliani as a true fiscal conservative.
While Mr. Robertson did not mention Mr. Giulianis support of abortion rights, he said approvingly that Mr. Giuliani has assured the American people that his choices for judicial appointments will be men and women who share the judicial philosophy of John Roberts and Antonin Scalia, who have argued against Roe v. Wade.
The endorsement comes just a month after a coalition of other prominent Christian conservatives threatened to back a third-party candidate if Mr. Giuliani were to become the Republican Partys presidential nominee. The support of Mr. Robertson could not only help Mr. Giuliani present himself as a viable candidate to the Christian right, but could also help him improve his standings in Iowa: Mr. Robertson finished second in the Iowa caucuses during his own run for president in 1988.
And the announcement threatened to overshadow an important conservative endorsement being announced by Senator John McCain of Arizona the backing of Senator Sam Brownback of Kansas, who recently ended his own bid for president. While Mr. McCain opposes abortion rights, he has sometimes been viewed with suspicion by anti-abortion groups who felt muzzled by the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law that he helped pass, so the endorsement by Mr. Brownback, a staunch social conservative, was seen as an important achievement...

That's great timing Pat. Nominate Giuliani and the GOP can't use those sentiments linked above, and the left by all appearances wants this to be a Giulani v. Clinton contest.
And in other news,
John the Baptist endorses King Ahab and Queen Jezebel in the upcoming municipal elections in Jerusalem.
I’ve never wished for anyone to go home and be with the Lord, but I’m getting close.
Bye, bye, Pat! I reckon that you have got so damned rich that protecting your wealth is paramount!
Only thing I am sure about is that Jesus really gets upset, about liars!
If Rudy follows through on his promise to appoint Supreme Court justices in the mold of Scalia, Roberts, and Thomas, then I don’t care what Rudy’s personal beliefs are.
After all, almost every Democrat says that they are personally against abortion or want to make abortion “safe, legal, and rare” then they appoint judges that are slightly to the left of Stalin.
Rudy has repeated his promise many, many times. If he backs down by appointing a non-constructionist, then the Christian base will give him total h311. I’m willing to give him a try.
“Bye, bye, Pat! I reckon that you have got so damned rich that protecting your wealth is paramount!”
Diamond Pat Robertson doesn’t do anything without a money angle.
What was it here? Did Rudy promise reduce enforcement against blood diamond trading?
It’s gotta be that. Surely he wouldn’t be naive enough to think a man that would restrict Second Amendment rights would be the right guy to help defend our population. And I doubt the judicial nominations would be enough to offset some of the more left-leaning policies that Giuliani has.
41 second audio from YouTube that's easily heard.
My personal favorite is the way Guiliani let his wife Donna Hanover know that he was divorcing her. He announced it at a press conference before he told her.
The other day I read that Guiliani had a love shack near the trade towers where he went to be with Judith Nathan. I heard Judith Nathan made her living experimenting on poor, live dogs. She sold staple guns to doctors. She displayed the guns by using them on live dogs after the dogs were cut open just for the sake of her staple guns.
Wow, I haven’t seen this thread yet today. /sarc
As much as I love GWB, I am tired of empty promises. I don’t trust Rudy to do the right thing on judges at all.
Did you hear how Rudy changed his mind about the Second Amendment? He told a recent NRA convocation that September 11, 2001 made him change his mind about gun control, IIRC.
