Every day, I’m asked whom I’m supporting for President in 2008. I’ve looked over the potential candidates, and on the Republican side, I believe the best, by far, is Rudy Giuliani, who took the first step toward a run, yesterday, with an exploratory committee.
(On the Democratic side, the best guy who’s been talked about as a Presidential contender is Senator Evan Bayh from Indiana, who truly understands the Islamic threat and is a more moderate Democrat–which is why he’ll never get the nomination.)
Yes, I’m pro-life and against gay rights, where Giuliani shares neither of my views on these issues. But, to me, the terrorism issue is far more important, #1 on the list. Right now, we have a President who is pro-life, against gay rights, and pretends to be the “Counterterrorism Prez.” But, actually, he’s done nothing substantive on any of these issues.
So, I’ll take the guy who I know will have the guts to do what Bush does not. I believe Giuliani is that man. He’s proven that time and again, whether it was when he told terror-supporting Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal to take his $10 million and shove it (right after 9/11) or when he severely restricted Yasser Arafat’s travel in New York (kicking him out of a concert).
A man who will do those things vs. Bush PC on Islam is the man we need to run this country. He’s probably also the man who can handle the illegal alien problem and actually see to it that something is done about it. Not sure on his position on guest workers, but we’ll soon enough find out.
It will be a difficult matter for a pro-choice, pro-gay rights candidate (and, again, I oppose Giuliani on these issues) to get the GOP nomination. We’ll see.
So for those who want to know who I’m supporting for Prez, I say, “Viva Rudy.” America’s Mayor has what it takes to be America’s President.
