I'm not a Republican, so I guess I just can't get it.
How is it that Rudy Giuliani is even being taken seriously in his run for the Republican nomination, let alone in the top (or close to it) spot?
This man has no federal government experience. None.
He is at the top of the heap among candidates in a party that claims to be the one that represents true family values, and yet he's working on his 3rd marriage. He openly cheated on wife #2 (and billed expenses for his courtship of #3 to the City of New York.)
He rallied strong for his friend Bernard Kerik to be given the head job at Homeland Security, only to see the larceny and hypocrisy he helped fund splashed all over the papers.
He supports the NRA, now, but made it clear when he was the Mayor of NYC, that getting handguns off the streets and instituting strict gun control lowered crime rates.
He has stated categorically that he supports a woman's right to choose to terminate a pregancy, and has said he will not restrict federal funding for abortions, but is reaching out for the support of pro-lifers by saying he believes the practice is wrong.
He is a hypocrite standing on the bodies of 3000 innocent people and 12 dead jihadists in his bid to win the Republican nomination and ultimately the White House. Or am I missing something?
(And just to be fair, I don't see the Hillary appeal, either)
