In earlier debates, Rudy Giuliani has been reluctant to label Mitt Romney as a flip-flopper. Since the last debate, affairs have heated up slightly between the two, with Romney going after Giuliani on his immigration issues and Giuliani swiftly counterpunching.
In this debate, it would nice to see Giuliani actually go after Romney and force him to go on the defensive. First, it’s politically beneficial. Romney’s crushing the rest of the field in Iowa and New Hampshire and has just started airing ads in South Carolina. Also, going on the offensive contributes to Rudy’s core campaign strategy of portraying an image of strength.
The debate is now starting, let’s see what happens.
