Just got this info on an international forum I'm on. Been checking him out. I don't think you will see many serious contenders show their hand this early.

He is not a true Republican.
He would be more comfortable on Obama's team.
I don't like him.

We'll have to see what positions he has to take to try to win Iowa, which ruins Republican candidates. They have to deal with the far right wing there and sometimes it hurts them in the general election. You got to remember he's a Utah Mormon and he is very moderate for a Mormon, they are usually far right wing like Mo Brooks. His positions supporting gay civil union and his being an ambassador for Obama in China will probably hurt him in the Iowa Caucus. We'll see if he makes it through without flip flopping on more moderate issues.

Like Mo Brooks he supports turning Medicare over to vouchers with private insurance companies which the Congnressional Budget Office says will leave a significant number of 65 and over without insurance because of the cost. Look it up.

Should have known he couldn't be perfect...they never are. Suspect I still haven't heard a deal breaker. It's not likely that I will see eye to eye on spiritual matters with any candidate. I am more interested in his voting record and actions taken on various issues. What they say is a starting point, but what they've done is the truth of the matter, doncha know? Smile

I could come more near voting for Giuliani than any of the other's running in the Republican party. He's more of an old style Republican.
