An obvious hat tip to the AJC Political Insider on the Richardson endorsement story.
The endorsement by Glenn Richardson of Rudy Giuliani smacks or pure politics plain and simple. I believe Rudy Giuliani is an honorable man, but he’s wrong on so many issues and unacceptable to me and other Conservatives to be the Republican nominee for President.
Georgia is a conservative state and we should expect our elected Republicans to follow suit and support conservatives. Before anyone cries foul and says that I’ve got sour grapes because he didn’t support McCain, I would submit that I’m surprised really because he didn’t support a conservative – period.
Richardson likes to tout his conservative record in the state and make it seem that he is the King of the People in support of conservative principles. His abandonment of those principles in his support of Rudy is just odd – it comes out of left field.
This is a clear example of what’s wrong with politics and why people distrust politicians. If you’re going to talk the talk, be ready to also walk the walk.
We should raise the bar of politics and public service and the first step in doing so is discarding multiple choice politicians who play politics and don’t have any core principles and are willing to compromise for political expediency.
