Choosing a President

The phalanx of Republican candidates is somewhat confusing. None of them seem to be fighting very hard, at least rhetorically, for the post position.

So here is a little info with links to the campaign sites:

Gulianni
taxes - keep 'em low
spending - keep it low
war - calls it war on terror, but considers the conflict important and generation-defining
guns - ok with 2nd amendment, tough on criminals--sound like gun control to me.
abortion - follows law, wants increase in adoptions
marriage - against gay marriage but supports civil unions
judges - will appoint strict constructionist
immigration - ? but NY is sanctuary city.

Romney
taxes - keep 'em low
spending - keep it low
war - calls it war with jihadists
immigration - wimpy language, no clear postion
guns - ?
abortion - against

judges - ? probably constructionists
energy - open ANWR, pro-nuclear

Thompson
