Quote of the Day: Rudy’s Latest Bullshit

“I strongly believe that Judge Silberman’s decision deserves to be upheld by the Supreme Court. The Parker decision is an excellent example of a judge looking to find the meaning of the words in the Constitution, not what he would like them to mean.”

– Rudy Giuliani in a statement supporting the Supreme Court’s decision to take up Parker vs DC.

    I don’t understand what is meant by “Rudy’s latest bullshit”. Would you rephrase?

    Is it that you think it’s hypocritical coming from a man who dedicated his tenure as NYC mayor to limiting the people’s exercise of their second amendment rights?

    Or is it that you think the Parker case was incorrectly decided by the DC Circuit Court of Appeals?

    Brian,

    It’s a tad bit hypocritical for a guy has problems with people exercising their second amendment rights to be praising a court decision that restores Second Amendment rights. Especially when Rudy has talked about “state’s rights” when talking about gun laws.

    ….Well, in Rudy’s defense, he was 100% for the Second Amendment before he was against it. Or is it that he was against it before he was for it? Dammit- what day of the week is today?

    Rudy’s always been for “what he likes the Constitution to mean” instead of “what the Constitution means.” He’s always been looking for ways to expand his power and circumvent the rules restricting government. For him to make that statement about “what the Constitution means” is of the highest hypocrisy.
