A while ago it was McCain sucking up to the extremists after he called them out in 2000. Rudy Giuliani, the man who has been running on a platform that consists mainly talking about the 9/11 attacks is now endorsed by a man who says that we deserved to actually be attacked. As I've said before, there is no such thing as being "too far right " in this country. I hope a reporter will ask Rudy if he agrees with Robertson's assessment and if he does not---then he should denounce this endorsement. If he's fine with it then he should explain to all NY'ers why he agrees with Robertson & Falwell's views. Watching Giuliani being introduced by Robertson says it all, doesn't it?
JERRY FALWELL: The ACLU’s got to take a lot of blame for this.
PAT ROBERTSON: Well, yes.
JERRY FALWELL: And, I know that I’ll hear from them for this. But, throwing God out successfully with the help of the federal court system, throwing God out of the public square, out of the schools. The abortionists have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way-all of them who have tried to secularize America - I point the finger in their face and say “you helped this happen.
PAT ROBERTSON: I totally concur. The problem is that we've adopted that agenda at the highest levels of our government. We're responsible as a free society for what the top people do and the top people are the court system.
There's got to be a huge rift forming in the Christian Conservative camp over this one . Especially---since James Dobson has already denounced Rudy.

Dobson: …and I think by your supporting Giuliani and helping to get the nomination for him, you’re about to see the contradiction of most of the things that you stand for.
Hannity: We’re friends and we’ll always be friends…
Update: Here it comes. Robertson vs Dobson: "Greg Sargent: Top Conservative Group Wants To Know: Does Rudy Agree With Robertson On 9/11?
"9/11 is what Rudy's campaign is fundamentally based on," Charmaine Yoest, a vice president at Family Research Council Action, told us. "This does beg the question -- does Rudy agree with Robertson's comments about 9/11?"
