(WASHINGTON : Ucs News) With the Republican presidential primaries front-loaded to southern states, Both Mitt Romney and Rudolph Giuliani have promised conservative campaign donors the gay bashing will begin this coming summer.
Both Mitt Romney and Rudolph Giuliani face tough challenges in the early primaries. The two men have fallen into a trap carefully set by the Bush Rove political hate machine. While Romney and Giuliani where busy succeeding in local politics, the Republican national committee has been blasting away at so called “east coast liberals”. The tactic effectually stalled John Kerry in 2004 but has also slowed the progress of the the Republican parties new “east coast liberals” Romney and Giuliani.
East coast local politics relies on actually helping people and offering minorities a more inclusive vision of the Republican Party. Romney and Giuliani did well reaching out to gays, minorities and social progressive voters. But now on the national stage, it’s time for Romney and Giuliani to get tough. National elections are won by splitting off minorities and rallying the majority to crush decent. The Republican target hasn’t changed; GAYS.
While the two men work to overcome their past support for gay marriage and abortion rights , the two face another daunting challenge. Their names. With the given names of Willard and Rudolph the pair face an uphill battle. According to a recent Gallop Poll 67% of respondents “Would Never vote for guy named “Mitt” or Willard”. While 58% of respondents preferred Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer over Rudolph Giuliani.
With the first primaries a little for than a year away both Mitt Romney and Rudolph Giuliani need to fight their way back to the Right if they hope to dislodge the so-called maverick John McCain from the GOP’s front-runner position. Republican strategists expect the gloves to come off as Willard and Rudolph jostle each-other to kick, punch and otherwise disenfranchise gays.
