Only one thing I care about in a Presidential candidate. Is he/she qualified to be Commander-in-Chief?
Always ask yourself, "Is he/she tough enough to deal with our enemies? Does he/she have a backbone of stainless steel? Will he/she command the respect and loyalty of our armed forces?"
I know.........it's a tough standard. Not many measure up.
At least Rudy has some accomplishments to point to. He has commanded the largest police force in America. And gotten results. He has faced down and jailed members of the "Family." He kept his cool and worked the problem in a postive fashion on 9/11.
He may not be the MAN. We'll see. That's why we have the campaign. But why turn it into an 18 month torture test for the voters? I'm burned out on it already.
There is a measure of desperation among the left regarding certain electable republican candidates.
For all his flaws and soft liberalism, Rudy is genuinely electable and that scares them.Posted by Purple Avenger at May 11, 2007 7:19 PM
You're talking about people still carrying Vietnam. Putting down the hashpipe aint half their worries.Posted by Alan Kellogg at May 11, 2007 8:59 PM
Well, today "Dr." Dobson of that 'Focus on the Family' group has come out and said that he will not support Guiliani.
I would suppose from this annoucement that he'll pass that on to who ever he thinks he's got influence with.
It ain't just the Democrats who are acting like a deer in the headlights.Posted by Eric Blair at May 17, 2007 8:24 PM
