Guns and New York
by

I wondered why a bit of Fred Thompson’s attack on guns was aimed at Bloomberg who isn’t a Republican and now isn’t running. NBC Political Director Chuck Todd notes that both Romney and Thompson are attacking “New York” as a way of avoiding naming Rudy directly and also raising the specter of “liberal New York City” which they hope will inflame conservatives. Ironically in the post-Giuliani world I wonder how effective it is to label NYC as the liberal bogey man. If an accurate assessment, it does point up the degree to which some of these candidates have abandoned eastern and urban voters (who actually like New York, especially since they can walk around at night after a Broadway show). One more reason why, if he can pick up a victory or two in the early states, Rudy will clean up with New Jersey, Illinois, New York, etc. on Super Duper Tuesday.
