Rudy Tears It Up At Fundraiser

Jim Geraghty over at National Review got a chance to see Rudy Giuliani's latest speech at a fundraiser in New York City. For a candidate that makes many on the conservative-right uncomfortable, he served up a healthy portion of red meat that made many a Reaganite salivate.

I’ve come to the following conclusion: For certain Republicans, Rudy will always be untouchable — be it his stands on abortion, gay marriage, or gun control, or his messy marriages, or his in-your-face abrasive leadership style, etc.


…when Rudy gets going on an issue you agree with him on… he’s really, really good. Maybe unequaled. And it’s possible to imagine him, in some future debate, mopping the floor with a liberal challenger the way Reagan obliterated Carter and Mondale.
