Giuliani Is 'In This to Win'

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has announced that he has filed papers with the FEC to become an official candidate for President. "I'm in this to win," Giuliani said on Fox News' Hannity and Colmes.

CNN reports that "Despite being immensely popular in national polls, Giuliani faces hurdles to securing the Republican nomination state by state. His moderate stances on issues such as gun control, abortion and gay rights do not sit well with hard-core social conservatives who are a crucial voting group in the nominating contests. His two divorces could be obstacles as well.

"But conservatives also aren't entirely sold on McCain, an Arizona senator, and Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, and that could even the playing field for Giuliani. He hopes primary and caucus voters look past his liabilities and consider his record of leadership in difficult times."

Giuliani is no "moderate". He's a liberal who supports abortion, gay "marriage" and gun control. He would be (and ought to be) a disaster as the Republican nominee.

CNN calls Rudy's positions "moderate" for the simple reason that those are CNN's positions.

But what would truly be a "moderate" position on abortion? On slavery?

That's true; not only is Guliani a liberal, he's against everything conservatives hold dear.

The only thing people like about him is his leadership skills and personality. Unfortunately, these may give him a good push towards the Presidency...

What we need is a new party of real conservatives and Christian-principled people, and the Constitution Party is the best fit for that description.

I agree with Paul. "Moderate" is a CNN code word for "liberal like us."

Rudy would truly be a disaster for the GOP. "Hillary lite."
