Steve Forbes Comes Out of the RINO Closet

That Democrat in Americans’ clothing has just endorsed Rudy Giuliani [Reuters]:

Fiscal conservative Steve Forbes on Wednesday endorsed former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani’s bid to become the Republican nominee for president in the 2008 race for the White House.

Forbes, chief executive of Forbes magazine who unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination in 1996 and 2000, is considered a leader of the party’s pro-business and tax-cutting wings.

I think it’s clear that certain segments of the Party are always willing to sell traditional American values short. What baffles me is why they would choose to do so at this particular moment. When it’s clear that every American and every patriot needs to rally behind Brownback, why are they deserting him?

I’m puzzled. I suspect it has to do with the fact that they were never real Americans, real patriots, or real Republicans, in which case we’re better off without them. But this could be some sort of subtle ploy to draw Giuliani out and discredit him. If that’s the case, I’ll happily retract this title’s criticism of Steve Forbes. I’m trying not to get my hopes up, though.

Update (by Psycheout): It’s too soon to call this a subtle ploy by Forbes, but this does expose something about RINO Rudy. It turns out that Giuliani was against the flat tax (when Forbes was running) before he was for it (now that Rudy’s running). See: Giuliani Takes Notes from Romney, Panders To Conservatives. Giuliani takes Brownback’s (and Forbes’) position and gets endorsed by Forbes. Interesting.

Update 2 (by Psycheout): Yahoo News link broke.  Added Reuters link.


  1. Well, look at it this way. Having The Three RINOs at the top of the polls really flushes out and exposes other RINOs previously hiding in the background. They expose their true values when they come out in favor of these liberal Republicans.

    Romney has peaked and is on his way down. Giuliani is going to burn out. McCain is done. Today’s flavor of the month, Fred Thompson, played a critical role in getting the abominable McCain-Feingold legislation passed.

    As the RINOs go down in flames, Sam Brownback’s star will rise.

  2. True. I suppose they’re a sort of flame, an infernal flame of treason and Hellfire that draws out the moth-like RINOs from the closet where they were secretly gnawing on the American flag with their cockroach Democrat allies.

  3. Isn’t Forbes a homo? He sure acts like one.

  4. Isn’t Forbes a homo? He sure acts like one.”

    I thought he was a (an?) eunuch, myself. He acts like one of those, too.

  5. Agreed, it does flush out the RINOs. Lets add Tommy Thompson to the list (embryonic stem cell proponent) and Jim Gilmore, (though self-described as pro-life says abortion should be legal for 8 weeks). They are coming out of the woodwork. At least Forbes’ endorsement is virtually worhtless.

    If this “big tent” approach continues, the party is going to be tolerant of the abortionists for me to fit under that big tent.

  6. Exactly. If we’re such a big tent, why not let the Democrats, Communists, and Islamists come in, too? I think American national interests hinge on our ideological purity.
