Conservative Anger At Rudy Rears Its Ugly Head


Make text smaller Make text larger




The influential National Review is [editorializing] about Rudy Giuliani today, parroting the accepted general wisdom that the former mayor lacks the conservative credentials to win real support from the right during the presidential primaries. Sure, he might have been a great manager, but his positions on abortion and civil unions will kill him in the end. Quote:


"But there are serious obstacles to Giulianiís winning the embrace of conservatives. Putting aside his tumultuous personal life, his positions on many national issues, from tax reform to the environment, are largely unknown and will be more closely examined. On social issues, however, his liberal views are well known and so present a threshold question for many conservatives.


"


For what it's worth, much of National Review can feel like a pep rally for former Massachusetts Governor and fellow 2008 contender Mitt Romney these days, so criticism of the other candidates should be taken with some small grain of salt.
