Giuliani To Social Conservatives: Take It Or Leave It

Here's the story: Giuliani to social conservatives: Take it or leave it

Here's a quote:

Rudy Giuliani's message to social conservatives: If you don't like my views, don't vote for me.

The Republican presidential frontrunner Thursday reaffirmed his support for federal funding for some abortions, a position which puts him at odds with many conservatives. During a press conference at the State Capitol in Columbia, South Carolina, he said he didn't expect to win over 100 percent of the voters.

"If that's real important to you, if that's the most important thing, I'm comfortable with the fact that you won't vote for me," the former mayor said.

Although Giuliani said he is does not like abortion, he said he would not change the standing law. Specifically, he said would not change the Hyde amendment, which restricts federal funding for abortion to cases of rape, incest and to save the life of the mother.

"I'm against abortion, I hate it, I wish there never was an abortion and I would counsel a woman to have an adoption instead of an abortion," the former New York mayor said. "But ultimately I believe it is an individual right and the woman can make that choice."

His stance on abortion is about the last thing that concerns me. I don't totally agree with abortion, but it is not a decision I believe that should be a litmus test for a presidential candidate. Imagine the crime level we would have now if abortion had been banned.

On your show today I heard you mention and Rudy confirm, that New York City was a sanctuary city for illegals, and he was proud of the fact he took them out of the shadows of the streets, and enrolled their children in the public schools. What about the 80% drop out rate of the children from the NYC schools. Why is the tax rate in NYC higher than most other cities in the US. So what would you do as President; make the US a Sanctuary Country, take us further into the gutter than we are now? Sure he cleaned up the homeless and crime in NYC. Where did it go? Obviously Florida, and Orlando. Notice all the NY accents calling you and Bud's show lately..

How about a Republican candidate from a red voting Republican state; not someone from a State that elected Hillary Clinton as their Senator.

Is their anybody out there?

Mssrs. Giuliani, McCain, Romney need to bow out, get out of the way, and let a true Conservative run. Not another moderate to liberal, compasionate, compromising so called conservatice Republican. Luckily... Mel Martinez can't be a VP candidate since he was not born in the US. The law should also apply to Congressman.

I read where James Carvell is predicting someone ie: Jeb Bush will eventually decide to run as the Republican candidate. Can you imagine another Bush in the whitehouse, and a Mexican born first lady..

I think the drop out rate of 80% for NYC may be slightly high. Detroit is a little higher than NYC. It's closer to 70% according to the Urban Clubbers News, article dated 23 Sep, 2006 "Rappers, Educators and others discuss the high school drop out rate."

No child left behind is obviously working...

New York City is and always a cesspool. That is why I left there over 30 years ago. Giuliani prided himself on the debate tonight, as the Mayor of a city with a 5 to 1 ratio Dem to Rep. Does anyone really believe he is a Republican? Do you want America to resemble NYC, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, a few of the other cesspools in America? Do you want America to resemble NYC, or maybe the solicialist Northeast ie:, MA, ME, NH, ME, CT ? I don't. If so, take a ride on the great white RINO from the BIG APPLE, and swallow hard!
