Rudy pleads for GOP to leave same-sex marriage out of it
Giuliani must be dreaming — the gay boogeyman and the wanton woman aborting her fetus with glee are all these folks have in their back pocket at this point. (365gay.com):
Raising money for local Republicans even as he ponders his own political future, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said Monday that Republicans must increasingly be “a big party” that accepts divergent views.
Giuliani said that broad-brush themes, like limited government, ought to define the Republican Party – not hot-button social issues like abortion and gay rights.
“The major thing that we organize around as Republicans is government that puts more reliance on people than government,” Giuliani said. “They (Democrats) tend to think of government solutions as most of the answers.”
…Some strategists believe Giuliani will face significant hurdles in Republican politics because he supports abortion rights and favors tough gun control laws, views that contrast those held by many core Republican voters.
…”I’ve got a lot of places to go and a lot of people to talk to and a long process to go through to see if it makes sense for me to run for president in 2008,” Giuliani said.
Step number one, Rudy, is to understand the AmTaliban-controlled GOP won’t bend on the homo issue.
