Giuliani to give keynote at GOP convention
Associated Press ^ | August 20, 2008 | Liz Sidoti

Posted on 08/20/2008 11:19:49 AM PDT by Dukes Travels

WASHINGTON - Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani will give the keynote address at the Republican National Convention next month and Democrat-turned-independent Sen. Joe Lieberman also will take center stage at the GOP gathering.

John McCain's vanquished Republican primary rivals — and a slew of potential McCain running mates — also have speaking roles at the four-day gathering in St. Paul, Minn.

President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, first lady Laura Bush, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lieberman, who was the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2000 and is said to be under consideration for the same role with McCain, will open the convention on Monday, Sept. 1, with speeches that focus on service.

You always say stuff like that when a conservative speaks.

Go find a liberal site for your insults and stop contaminating FR with liberal amorality.

Ah, so your definition of a conservative hinges solely on abortion. That’s nice, but there are many more issues this country deals with. There are many people in this country that are conservative on issues such as taxes, foreign policy, etc. that don’t really care about abortion?

Joe left his old party over their criticism of his support for the war. Other than that, Joe is still a very liberal Democrat.

Neither McCain, Rudy, or Joe are representative of the GOP and besides, I doubt many dems will be watching the GOP convention anyway. Who would he really be talking to that he can influence?

Yes, me.

But I try not to use ‘conservative’ anymore because it has been corrupted just as ‘liberal’ (as in a classic and freedom loving sense) was co-opted and corrupted by the left. ‘Conservative’ has been hyphenated so much to mean so many things that it now means nothing.

I prefer the term ‘constitutionalist’ and I believe in small (not just smaller) government, low (not just lower) taxes, and personal liberty and individual freedom.

No, they may not be, but I have been charged with that so many times that I think that I must be.

Do you believe in the principles that donna cited? If not, then you are NOT a conservative and you don’t share the values and world view of the owner of this site.

Even if he isn’t the ‘keeper’, he is the owner and if he wants you gone, you are gone.

You stuck youself in the middle of someone else calling me names for being upset that McCain is turning the important speeches at the Pro-Abortion Republican National Convention over to partial birth abortion/abortion supporters.

That’s not conservative.
