Yeah, Eric, why don't you promote Rudy Guiliani [sic] as a presidential candidate? I'd love to see how that turns out.Suzanne over at Big Blue Wave wrote "if Republicans nominate Giuliani, they will lose". She had this to say:
Diogenes Borealis suggests that the Republicans would do well to allow Giuliani to be nominated as the Presidential candidate.If the Republicans don't nominate a pro-lifer, they will lose. The so-con base is not going to move mountains the way they did for George Bush for some guy who is not nearly as pro-life as he is.So, it was with a bit of a smirk that I learned that Giuliani has now been endorsed by Christian evangelist Pat Robertson:
"To me the overriding issue before the American people is the defense of our population from the blood lust of Islamic terrorists," Robertson said in his opening statements. Robertson added that the United Stated needs a "leader with a bold vision who is not afraid to tackle the challenges ahead" and that leader was former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, R-N.Y.Critics of Giuliani who think that his past pro-abortion & pro-homosexual positions make him unacceptable to the Christian Right in the US are deluded, in my opinion. As Robertson has stated, Christian Republicans want a candidate that at least has a shot at defeating the Democrats in 2008, and if that means supporting a divorced pro-choicer from New York, so be it. The alternative is a Hillary Clinton presidency. Who is more anathema to Christian Republicans - Clinton or Giuliani? Exactly.
