Yet Another Reason to Shun Giuliani

How sold out can a person be? For a person to try to convert a national tragedy into his personal political currency, for his response to the Firefighters of NY and their pleas to not "scoop and dump" the dead bodies (still in the rubble) of their fallen comrades on 9-11, for his labeling himself a Republican when his views on hot-button issues are very far from conservativism, the core base of the Republican party, to this!

I wonder how many speeches Giuliani has given to AIPAC. I wonder how this stance will help him garner the Jewish vote, even though a plurality of Israelis want a 2-state solution. It's amazing how Ehud Olmert, the prime minister of Israel, can address US Congress following the election of Hamas and imply that the measure being considered before US Congress with regard to Hamas's victory is too punitive for the Palestinian people (the Palestinian anti-terror act or whatever its ludicrous name) and yet the Congress voted in line with the hardcore Likud stance.

Is there an upper limit to how dedicated our elected officials, but certainly not leaders, past and present and perhaps future, can be to special interests, and interests that are arguably not in the US national interest!

Go Ron Paul !
