The Wednesday Washington Post bluntly calls Rudy Giuliani’s recent statements on abortion “rambling and sometimes contradictory” and recounts his appearance yesterday on Laura Ingraham’s radio show to try to make amends.
When Ingraham ended the segment with a standard line about his returning again, a clearly agitated Giuliani responded: “I would love to come back, but you’re going to have to ask me about the war on terror and what we do about the economy, which is after all what most citizens ask me about.”
“Well, conservatives are citizens, too, Mayor Giuliani!” Ingraham responded. “We’re citizens, too.”
It would be nice to have the audio of this to judge just how “agitated” Rudy really was for ourselves.
In any event, it sounds really arrogant for Giuliani to be brushing aside an issue that a lot of people care about so passionately. The campaign must have done some advance planning on how to handle the inevitable questions about Rudy’s abortion stance, right? If they did, it’s not showing these days.
