Raving Conservative

Maybe Giuliani After All . . .

I’m conflicted.

I have stridently opposed Rudy Giuliani for President for several years now. As much as I love his ability to manage taxes, empower law enforcement, his positions on foreign policy, and other important conservative issues, I have opposed him because I personally view him to be a social liberal and I do not trust him to appoint conservative judges. However, in his interviews as a candidate for President he came out on the right side of everything.

Most importantly he was very open about supporting Judges like Scalia, Robetrs, and Alito.

He supports the Second Amendment in a constructionist sense, but also supports the right of local legislatures to pass local laws to met local needs.

He specifically opposes homosexual marriage.

His position on abortion is acceptable. He expresses a personal moral opposition to abortion. Believes partial birth abortion should remain banned. Believes in parental notification prior to abortion with a judicial review available to victims of incest. And is willing, like any decent human being, to allow any abortion for lifesaving purposes. His position that abortion is a choice and should be left that way one I do not support, but is not automatically disqualifying for someone who is wiling to challenge the egregious abuses of abortion availability.

He has an acceptable, not perfect position on border security. A perfect solution will never pass Congress because of the weak-kneed Barbie-boys who are subjugating themselves to criminals. His ideas might pass, and they might even work in reality.

As long as he stands by his stated positions he could be one of the most wildly successful Presidents America has ever had, especially in light of the almost universal admiration Americans have for his achievements and leadership ability that would give him a mandate to govern that even the selfish narcissists on the liberal side of Congress cannot deny and expect to keep their jobs.

But I am not certain that I trust him to do what he says on the social issues because of his actions in New York.

Still . . . he has just managed to move into serious consideration. I shall have to watch him closely, but if he wants my vote over Mitt Romney he will have to work hard for it.

And if he maintains his current positions there is strong likelihood that I will vote for him over ANY Democrat, although I still like Bill Richardson quite a bit despite his opposition to the war in Iraq.


  • He's alright, but I think he lacks the chrisma and I doubt he'll win the nomination.

  • I am sure the other lot will get elected anyway but he seems to have the right public profile to succeed for your lot.

    Boo hiss for him being another one of those gay bashers though. I have lost some of the admiration I had for him after 9-11. I don't understand why all you 'Conservatives' are so bigoted when there are bigger issues to give priority to.

    But of course I am biased, as a married gay man.

  • I don't see him having a snowball's chance in hell of winning. He's been divorced, what, three times? Christians aren't going to vote for a guy who's been divorced three times,

  • Wasp Jerky,

    you obviously think Christians are incredibly bigoted to think that in today's society we care about how many divirces a politician has had. I am less concerned about his divorces than I am about the fact that he cheated on his past wives. Infidelity is not a good trait.

    But I am also less concerned about past indiscretions than I am about socialists gainign control of this country. If I had to choose between those two issues I will vote against the socialists every time.
