Giuliani Backs Away From Civil Unions

This video is part 1 of a series of YouTube videos created by what I can only assume is a Republican who doesn't think Rudy is conservative enough.

Well, that angry little video maker should be very happy today, because according to the NY Sun, Rudy is back-pedaling on his former stance:
In a startling departure from his previously stated position on civil unions, Mayor Giuliani came out to The New York Sun yesterday evening in opposition to the civil union law just passed by the New Hampshire state Senate.

"Mayor Giuliani believes marriage is between one man and one woman. Domestic partnerships are the appropriate way to ensure that people are treated fairly," the Giuliani campaign said in a written response to a question from the Sun. "In this specific case the law states same sex civil unions are the equivalent of marriage and recognizes same sex unions from outside states. This goes too far and Mayor Giuliani does not support it."

Do you think Rudy's former roommate would still be as supportive of his candidacy now? Unlike Rudy, NY Gov. Spitzer enacts legislation consistent with his stated stance on marriage equality. Wait--consistency? Equality? Keeping promises? What am I thinking? Spitzer's a DEMOCRAT.
