Our friend Matt Franck neatly sums up the case against the trustworthiness of Rudy Giuliani on abortion issues.
Giuliani would have us believe that his "honest" refusal to pander on abortion is superior to the inconsistent flip-flopping of others. Matt effectively disassembles the honesty of Giuliani’s position, showing how slippery it really is. He also shows that, in politics, trustworthiness depends upon clearly articulating principles to which you can be held, a standard somewhat more readily met by candidates other than the former Mayor of New York.
Update: Our friend RC2 argues that Matt’s counterexample to RG is also problematical, according to his standard of assessment.
