To use the phrase that Fox news pushed onto us in 2004, Giuliani flip-flopped. And it’s obviously a ploy to appeal to the right wing of the Republican Party. The Sad thing is that it will probably work.
Despite Mr. Giuliani’s long history of supporting gay rights — or rather, because of it — yesterday’s statement is likely to lead many observers to question whether the former mayor is concerned that his socially liberal record and positions aren’t flying in the Republican primary. While he still holds a commanding lead in the national polls, he has taken a hit over the last month or so after reiterating his support for the public funding of abortion.
