It doesn’t seem to be a smart tactic for the Giuliani campaign to hit Thompson for not being a consistent enough conservative on immigration when Giuliani’s own immigration record does not endear him to conservatives, to put it mildly. That’s the type of thing that has caused problems for the Romney campaign. A much better tactic would be to wait for Thompson to attack Rudy for governing a sanctuary city, and then hit Thompson on the executive experience factor–i.e., Fred “never had the responsibility for millions of people’s lives on his shoulders.”
