Gives a Whole New Meaning to the Term “Moving Target”

A story at Fox news tells how Presidential candidate Rudy Guiliani, at a town meeting in New Hampshire last night, reassured a recently-blinded police officer that he would still be able to own and carry a gun. While Guiliani’s support of the blind having guns and being able to carry them around is a whole other issue, the thing that caught my eye in this story was that Rudy Guiliani was in support of the citizens’ Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Rudy Guiliani has been a big supporter of gun control and limitations his entire political career…well that is until now. From the news story:

“During his two terms as mayor, Giuliani supported strict gun laws at both the local and national level and advocated the federal assault weapons ban that expired in 2004. But as a presidential candidate, he vows to protect Second Amendment rights at the federal level allowing state and local authorities to determine their own ‘reasonable’ restrictions.”

This is just another instance of a candidate switching sides, changing values, and confusing us. Why is it so hard to say what you mean and mean what you say? That is why I don’t like any of the forerunners in the Republican party. They seem to change their stand as often as they change their socks! I want a President who will stand up for what they believe.

We need a President, not another politician.

  1. But the president just is another politician, an exceptionally good one, but a politician nonetheless.

  2. True, he will be a politician in one sense. But he does not have to sway in his beliefs or lower his standards in efforts to gain more popularity.

    It is possible to become President and still hold to strong convictions (ie Ronald Reagan).
