Giuliani and Gun Control

, ,

Nick Rivera debunks Hizzoner’s campaign narrative.

It’s among the most well-known and often-implemented strategies in the universe of presidential politics: appeal to the party’s base during the primaries and tack back towards the center during the run-up to the general election. This process doesn’t necessarily dictate that the presidential candidate “flip-flop” on any of his or her positions. He or she merely emphasizes one set of policies for the partisans who will be voting in the presidential primaries and then, several months later, emphasizes a different set of policies for the American electorate at large.

However, in recent years, a somewhat different tactic has emerged as a favorite among presidential candidates: the art of flip-flopping by presidential candidates who staked out positions that were popular when running for statewide office but became politically inconvenient when faced with appealing to the party base in the run up to presidential primaries. …

In yet another example of a politician advocating one position while running for state or local office and a completely different one upon running for president, Rudy Giuliani has decided that he now supports a very strict interpretation of the Second Amendment. While Giuliani’s critics have been quick to point out Giuliani’s sudden change of heart with regards to gun control, Giuliani’s defenders have argued that Giuliani’s positions are consistent with the principle of federalism—arguing that while he may have supported strict gun control laws for New York City, he believes that individual states have the right to reject such gun control laws.

Anyways, my guess is a final contest Rudy Giuliani vs Hillary Clinton which Hilary Clinton loses, owing to some blunders she did during her campaign and to certain lack of trust from the Democrats who find her a bit too “authoritarian.”

Is that hard to guess?

She is a “Gamal Abdel Nasser-type personality” and no one knows what in the Hell she would do once she would be elected President, in my own opinion. And I’m certainly not the only one to have such a perception of her, I believe.

I’m ready to bet $1 on it.
