Interesting. The Guiliani Planned Parenthood flap appears to be coming from the McCain camp. First, The Politico reports:
The returns have been on the public record for years, but the detail about Giuliani’s support for Planned Parenthood — along with e-mailed copies of the returns — was provided to The Politico by aides to a rival campaign, who insisted on not being identified.
The McCain camp then makes their hay:
The reports, in turn, led the top campaign strategist for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to suggest Tuesday that Giuliani’s position was unacceptable for a Republican standard-bearer.
“He’s well outside the mainstream of rank-and-file Republicans on this issue, not only as someone who is pro-abortion, but someone who has supported one of the most radical pro-abortion groups in the country,” John Weaver, the McCain strategist, said in a telephone interview.
Weaver’s remarks came a day after McCain had said it would be tough for a Republican who favored abortion rights to win the nomination.
“I think it’s one of the fundamental principles of a conservative to have respect and commitment to the dignity of human life, both the born and unborn,” McCain told the Associated Press in Iowa.
Don’t take long to put 2 & 2 together.
Here’s the problem. McCain opens himself up to scrutiny of his own “fundamental principles of a conservative”. Look back to 1999 when John was not in support of reversing Roe v. Wade, yet now all of a sudden he is.
Glass houses John. Glass houses.
