share save 120 16 Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney DUKE IT OUT Over Illegal Immigration

d8t71vi80sp4 Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney DUKE IT OUT Over Illegal Immigration

Republican presidential candidates, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney (L) and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani are shown on stage during the CNN/YouTube/Republican Party of Florida presidential debate in St. Petersburg, Florida, November 28, 2007.

Well, Flap was wrong about the You Tube Debate. It certainly was NOT boring.

First up, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney aggressively discussing illegal immigration.

Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney scornfully debated immigration Wednesday in a testy personal exchange in which Giuliani accused Romney of employing illegal immigrants at his home and running a “sanctuary mansion.”

Giuliani criticized Romney after the former Massachusetts governor claimed Giuliani had retained New York’s status as a sanctuary city while he was mayor.

Romney said it would “not be American” to check the papers of workers employed by a contractor simply because they have a “funny accent.” He had landscapers at his Belmont, Mass., home who turned out were in the country illegally.

Giuliani shot back, calling Romney’s attitude “holier than thou.”

“Mitt usually criticizes people when he usually has the far worse record,” Giuliani said.

The Mayor was RIGHT on Romney’s hypocrisy. In fact, it is about time someone called Mitt on Massachusetts sanctuary cities and his employment of illegal alien Guatemalans at his mansion.

Here is Mitt’s hypocrisy:

  • While Romney was governor, the commonwealth of Massachusetts became one of the six states with the largest growth in unauthorized migrant population, from 2002 to 2004, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, with somewhere between 200,000-250,000 new illegal immigrants.
  • In the past, Governor Romney supported more LIBERAL positions on illegal immigration than the 2007 recently failed Kennedy-McCain legislation. In fact, he supported President Bush and Senator McCain’s efforts to change current law in favor of “AMNESTY.”
  • During Romney’s Term, Proposed State Aid To These Sanctuary Cities Increased 4.07%, From $103,218,421 In FY2004 To $107,419,246 In FY2007.
  • Romney’s Last Minute Agreement With Federal Government To Allow State Troopers To Enforce Immigration Laws Was Rescinded Before It Was Ever Implemented.

So, why is Mitt Romney hypocritically attacking the Mayor?

Mitt Romney WILL Say and Do Anything to trash his opponents and get himself elected.

Is this who American voters want as their next President?

Flap says no and is glad the Mayor FINALLY called Romney out on illegal immigration.

0 GOP You Tube Presidential Debate Is NOT Lincoln Douglas

Hello Republican candidates! This is Sarah Jean Horwitz from New Jersey. Humility and open-mindedness are two qualities which I greatly admire in a presidential candidate. I ask all of you to put aside your party allegiances and answer this simple question: If you had to pick one Democratic or Independent candidate to be the next President of the United States, who would it be and why?

Flap agrees with Hugh. Sorry Patrick.

At BEST tonight will be BORING – At WORST carping at the RIGHT from the CNN LEFT.

Definitely NOT Lincoln Douglas.

And, neither is this from the last Democrat You Tube Debate:

share save 120 16 Mike Huckabee Watch: The New Iowa GOP Frontrunner

capt09ba5bb8f845431f9fehj0 Mike Huckabee Watch: The New Iowa GOP Frontrunner

Presidential hopeful and former Arkansas Governor, Mike Huckabee, left, and his wife Janet Huckabee, address supporters during a campaign stop at the Spartanburg Gun Club in Pacolet, S.C., Sunday, Nov. 25, 2007. Huckabee is rising from a little-known Arkansas governor to a serious contender for the Republican presidential nomination and so, too, are the number of inquiries he’s facing over his ethical lapses, tax increases and unwavering support for a rapist, later convicted of killing a Missouri woman.

Is Mike Huckabee the NEW frontrunner in Iowa?

The latest Rasmussen Poll:

  • Mike Huckabee – 28%
  • Mitt Romney – 25%
  • Rudy Giuliani – 12%
  • Fred Thompson – 11%
  • Ron Paul – 5%
  • John McCain – 4%
  • Tom Tancredo -4%
  • Duncan Hunter – 1%

Holy Smokes, Batman, Mike Huckabee now leads in Iowa.

From Rasmussen: Forty-eight percent of Evangelical Christians support Hucakbee. That’s more than all the other candidates combined. Romney attracts 16% of the Evangelical vote.

Did you catch the Evangelical number? That’s called ‘lapping the field.’ Let’s think about this for a moment. If Huckabee actually wins Iowa, then he gets the slingshot effect going into New Hampshire. With his sunny personality, non-threatening manners, humor, and media-savvy skills – anything is possible.

Isn’t politics full of surprises?

Stay tuned…….

share save 120 16 Mitt Romney Watch: Too Late to Address Mormonism?

*****Scroll Down for Updates***** 

0 Mitt Romney Watch: Too Late to Address Mormonism?

Mike Huckabee’s latest campaign ad now airing in Iowa

Is it too late for Mitt Romney to address the “MORMON” issue?

Orin Hatch, the Mormon GOP Senator of Utah thinks it is time for Mitt Romney to declare his independence from the Latter Day Saints Church.

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney probably should give a speech to declare he’s not a captive of the Mormon church, Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch said Tuesday.

“There’s a concern that his religious beliefs might interfere with serving all people. There’s no question they do not,” said Hatch, also a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “He needs to put that problem to bed.”

With Mike Huckabee closing the gap in the Iowa polls and Huckabee’s recent advertising as a “Christian Leader” there is evidence that the “MORMON” issue is hurting Romney’s campaign.

Mr. Huckabee’s rise in Iowa — some recent polls now put him in a dead heat with Mr. Romney, who had led surveys for months — has been fueled by evangelical Christians, who believe Mormonism runs counter to Christian orthodoxy.

Although Mr. Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts, has been able to make inroads among the evangelicals, an influential voting bloc in the state, interviews with Mr. Huckabee’s supporters make clear that a sizable number are distinctly uncomfortable with Mr. Romney’s religion and cite it as a major reason they would not vote for him in the state’s Jan. 3 caucuses.

The time for Mitt Romney to “comfortably” distance himself from his religion may have passed. Had Mitt discussed the issue immmediately after his win in the Ames Straw Poll, no one would question the timing.

Now with the first elections/caucus in a little more than thirty days, Romney risks looking as either a desperate politician or an opportunist.

Flap does not expect Orin Hatch’s recommendation to be followed.

Stay tuned……

Update:

Mike Huckabee has taken the lead in Iowa in the latest Rasmussen poll just released.
