Well, it seems my remarks regarding Giuliani’s similarity, fiscally, to Steve Forbes and Phil Gramm were not simply the idle ramblings of outsider blogger. I swear I had no pre-knowledge of this when I made that remark, and this may explain why I had to step in for the media directors of the campaign last night on “Libertarian Politics Live” [link my debut performance here]
It seems Steve Forbes has joined the campaign as Hizzoner’s National Campaign Co-Chair and Senior Policy Adviser. Now Phil Gramm needs to abandon McCain so I can claim this week’s pundit prognosticator award.
Seriously: Fiscal conservatives– a rapidly vanishing breed, at least in Washington, DC– have a clear choice in the GOP presidential primary. As Steve Forbes said:
“As Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani showed how exercising fiscal discipline, including tax cuts, lowers deficits, spurs economic growth, and increases revenue. It is time the rest of the country benefit from a true fiscal conservative leader who gets real results.”
