Rudy says it's a family affair

Rudy Giuliani has been married three times, and very publicly cheated on his wife. He apparently has strained relationships with his son and daughter. People outside of New York do not realize how strained his support was just before 9/11, despite his success as mayor. Like most Long Islanders I respected what he did to make the city a better place, but was anxious to see him go towards the end because he just seem to implode into this horrible jerk. He then redeemed himself with his heroic leadership on and after 9/11.

While I have always applauded his fight against the mafia, his attacks on crime in NYC, his stance against anti-Catholic bigotry, and his actions on and after September 11th, I cannot see supporting his run for President. He is 100% pro-choice, and lead a very questionable life. Catholics should be careful not to equate conservative or republican politics with the faith. Although the right wing has been much more hospitable to Christian people and values than the left, it still worships the same god as the left: power.
