Giuliani's daughter 'backs Obama'

Postby AJRC_CS » Thu Aug 09, 2007 2:14 am

This made me laugh. Rudolph Giuliani's daughter supports Barack Obama. I mean this isn't really a surprise as Giuliani is seen by many as a moderate, but it must be very embarrassing while being one of the GOP's front runners to have your daughter come out in support of one of your main rivals.

i don't get the big deal. my father and i have NEVER agreed on politics. he's an avid Republican, thinks Reagan was just great and though not as narrow minded as some...he's to the right for sure. i can't remember a time where i felt the same, politically, as him. i remember being in high school and definitely NOT agreeing with his viewpoints.

the only difference is her dad is a public figure. and worse, a politician. but not every child should follow in their parent's footsteps! public figure or not!!

Heck, Ron Reagan has always disagreed with Ronald Reagan.

If Rudy wasn't running himself, I think he'd likely be backing Obama as well.

I don't think Gulliani will get the nod. He's electable and mainstream enough to win the presidency, but he'd not hard core right wing enough to win the nomination. His stance on abortion and his three marriages will not bode well for him in the bible belt that has garnered so much of Dubya's support.

I believe that Thompson will win the nomination, thereby handing the election to the Democrats (most likely Clinton) with at least a 60 per cent of the popular vote, and perhaps 55% of the electoral college.

Oh God i hope the GOP pick Thompson. If as you say Giuliani is seen as too moderate then they will pick the more conservative Thompson, who at the minute is so far behind in the polls even the forth placed Democrat, Bill Richardson, is only one point behind him.

I think Giuliani is the only GOP who poses any threat to Clinton and Obama, and i think the GOP would be fools not to have him run. He's popular with both conservatives and Liberals and has policies that would please both. To pick Thompson just because he has more conservative policies would be incredibly stupid and narrow minded of the GOP. To pick someone just because he follows party lines would be a travesty for all the real republicans out there. As you say Googie, the only people who would be happy with Thompson would be the Bible Belt and the right wing extremists.

The real problem is AJ that in a country where voting and registeration is totally optional, the bible belt actually turns up and votes in higher numbers than the rest of the country. That coupled with the systemic bias i9n the electoral college method of electing the President mean that a "bible belt" vote is worth more than a east or west cost vote.
