Giuliani Tells Me To Get Over Abortion

. . . because "Our party has to get beyond issues like that,". Nice. A prominent national politician who so happens to be Catholic is telling YOU and me, American voters, that we have to get over the abortion issue. For those not familiar with this issue and Mayor Rudy Giuliani, he is a pro-abortion candidate who believes killing unborn innocent children is a 'right' for women.
He also appeared to indicate that the Republican Party won't gain supporters if it retains its pro-life position. "Our party is going to grow, and we are going to win in 2008 if we are a party characterized by what we're for, not if we're a party that's known for what we're against," he said. However, the GOP has nominated pro-life presidential candidates in every race since 1980 and it has won five of the seven contests -- all against pro-abortion Democrats.
The article goes on to state:
Polls have also shown that abortion is a winning issue for GOP presidential candidates.Post-election polling after the 2004 presidential elections found that President Bush's pro-life stance gave him an edge over pro-abortion Sen. John Kerry. A 2004 Wirthlin Worldwide post-election poll found that 42 percent of voters said abortion affected the way they voted for president. Twenty-four percent of voters cast their ballots for President Bush while 15% voted for Kerry, giving Bush a 9 percent advantage on the issue of abortion. Eight percent of voters in the Wirthlin poll indicated abortion was the "most important" issue affecting their votes and Bush won among those voters by a six to two percent margin, leading Kerry by four percentage points among the most intense abortion voters.
Well just like the boycott of Ford, Mayor Giuliani's stance on abortion has been hurting his polling numbers. I predict it will end his presidential campaign, much to notorious cafeteria Catholic chagrin Mr. Hannity. For disclosure sake I am not a registered Republican, I am an independent. Above all else, I am a Christian first. For Mayor Giuliani telling Americans to get over abortion click here. To read how his stance is hurting his polling numbers click here.

One small point Tito. There is no such thing as a "Registered Republican" or for that matter a "Registered Democrat" in Texas. Your voter registration card is stamped that when you chose to vote in the primary. If you chose not to vote in the primary, then you are considered independent, even if you vote straight ticket R or D in the general election and have done so since the time of FDR because nobody can tell who voted straight ticket (hence the concept of secret ballots).

Completely off topic I know, but it is a sore point with me. Please carry on.

BTW, the Supreme court upheld a national ban on "partial birth abortions" today.

chipping away at Roe V Wade little by little.....

Rorschach,

Thanks for pointing that out. I always wondered what that meant in Texas. I'm still in an Arizona state of mind, but need to Texify myself after three years.

Thanks for the Supreme Court update, I just made a new posting on that.

A victory for children everywhere!

Little by little indeed.
