Fred Thompson’s Anti-Rudy Talk in NYC

Here’s a clip of Fred Thompson taking a whack at Rudy Giuliani last night during his midtown appearance before an audience of New York Conservatives.

“I was conservative yesterday, I’m a conservative today and I will be a conservative tomorrow,” he said.

In attendance for the event were Al D’Amato, John Faso, John Catsimatidis, congressional candidate Kieran Lalor, financierBruce Bent and firefighter union head and noted Giuliani critic Steve Cassidy.

After the speech, Thompson shook hands and posed for photos, then ran out of the room, ignoring most reporters questions. A senior advisor to Thompson told me afterwards that the goal of the appearance was in part to “pierce the myth” that Giuliani “is a little bit liberal. He’s very liberal.”
