(Vanity) If it's between McCain or Giuliani, who will you choose?

Posted on 01/27/2005 7:27:58 PM PST by Patriot814

I know the 2008 election is a while away and anything could happen, but if things were the same as the polls right now and it was between McCain and Giuliani, who would you choose? I would choose Giuliani because they're both modereate, but Giuliani's more loyal. McCain would appease the democrats and would be painted as crazy.

Rudy is a gun grabber, if the GOP wants to go back to the minority, start running RINO'S on a national level.

If Rudy is a good conservative, he will take Hillary's senate seat in '06.

But Rudy is in no way a conservatve.

You haven't told me all the info
Who are the Dems running?
Who are the goofy third parties running?
Because I certainly need more choices than Rudy or McKeating.

But in NYC terms, he'll take a seat from Hitlery.

I'd love to see him run against Hillary for the Senate seat but in a way you already told us what is going to happen

you wrote: If Rudy is a good conservative, he will take Hillary's senate seat in '06.

He isn't, so he won't run.

I'm calling it right now, Rudy v. Hillary 2006 will not happen.

Well he shouldn't get a presidential run.
So his best option is to take that Senate seat for the GOP.

Sort of reminds me of a recent Soth Park episode.

An election is held to choose a new school mascott.

The candidates are:

1. A turd sandwich
2. A giant douche

That would be the triumph of intellect over ego. I don't see Rudy winning that battle, his ego will win out.

Giuliani is genuine while McCain is f*cking nuts! I personally think the viet cong got to McCain at the Hanoi Hotel so I will give him that much space, but he should NEVER be allowed in any position of responsibility.

McCain went off the reservation at the Hanoi Hilton. Believe it, that's why he is being such a butthead over Abu Gharib, it's the skeletons in his closet that he is afraid of.

Giuliani. He's less liberal and more dependable than McCain.

McCain twists in the wind more than a windchime in a hurricane.

Just damn.

If you want on the list, FReepmail me. This IS a high-volume PING list...

John McCain.

I think a lot of people here are of the opinion that he's a RINO but frankly I suspect that fiscally he's more conservative than Bush.

While I have refused to chose the between lethal injection and the gas chamber (Rudy v. McCain), I couldn't disagree more.

McCain is way to the right of Rudy. Of course I refuse to consider a world where McCain has his finger on the nuke button. He's a total loon.

I can't imagine that could happen. Most of us in AZ despise the man...but no one will run against him. I've never voted for him. Plus he has health issues. Not as important for a "Vice" but very important for a President.

Between McCain and Rudy? Easy Rudy.

Also, whoever the GOP nominee is in 2008, I'll vote for them. All of you who are going to stay home or vote third party if a moderate is nominated might as well vote for the Dim candidate. It's has the same effect.

No it doesn't. They subtract a vote from the Republicans total but it doesn't add one to the Democrats total. But it is still foolish.

He'd also take the typically liberal stronghold of NY and is a good media darling.

But that being said I want Condi, Frist or Liddy Dole.

In a primary a wide assortment of candidates run. The goal should be to seek a person of character, as conservative as possible, while keeping an eye on whether they have the ability to inspire the passions of the electorate to rally around him/her.

I doubt Rudy would win the primary, simply because I believe we have a wider stable of talent that can meet the above criteria. If Republicans chose Rudy, I could live with it because he is strong on defense and no fan of the MSM.

I draw the line at an opportunist such as McCain. He sides with the MSM over the Republican Party. He sides with Dems over Republicans. He would marginalize the conservative element fracturing the party. I will not vote for opportunists whether they be Mccain, Hagel or even Newt. Isn't going to happen.

Rudy. He's been an in an executive position and literally presided over the transformation of this city from a craphole to a rather liveable, safe big city. He clearly stated his principles and objectives, and despite hectoring from the left, he oversaw the changes here.

He was mocked and trashed for insisting that petty crimes (things like turnstile jumping and graffiti) were punished, and not let slide by as had been done in the past. His belief was that if you crack down on the small stuff, you'll discourage most of the worse stuff. Letting small stuff emboldens them to do more, but he cracked down and made a difference.

He's also incredibly fair and incorruptible.

And after 9/11, I'd practically crawl over broken glass to work for any campaign that he might choose to wage.

Nope. Quite serious actually. I like Rudy as well, but I'm not so sure he's going to go ever well with social conservatives once all the dirty laundry is aired.
