Rudy Giuliani Throws Hat Into 2008 Presidential Ring
Post Chronicle ^ | 2/1/07

Posted on 02/01/2007 5:41:39 AM PST by areafiftyone

According to a source close to The Giuliani campaign, Rudy Giuliani is throwing his hat into the ring.  The Hinzsight Report confirms, through a source close to the Giuliani campaign, that he is presently sending people out into all 50 states to secure his name on the primary ballots.

"Despite Mayor Giuliani's public cautiousness, this is evidence that he is seriously pursuing the Presidency in 2008, and he should be taken very seriously. 

Critical state polls have shown Mayor Giuliani leading the pack, and it's about time that he start being considered what he is--the front-runner" a source tells The Hinzsight Report.

Giuliani has lined up nearly 300 key Republican supporters in New Jersey for his bid for the 2008 presidential nomination, his campaign announced this week.

In a recent Quinnipiac University poll of New Jersey voters, it showed Giuliani leading all Republican presidential candidates and ahead of Sen. Hillary Clinton, the leading Democratic contender, in a head-to-head matchup.

The New Jersey primary, which is currently set for Feb. 26, is likely to move up to Feb. 5, placing it early in the campaign season and increasing its significance.  As many as 15 states could hold their Republican presidential primaries Feb. 5, reports Gannett.

The DNC is already booking his ex-wife for the talking head shows.

Godspeed Rudy.

While I agree that we can do better, he'd only be splitting the party if he ran as an independant. Running as a 'Pubbie in the primary does not split the party.

Great news to read first thing. I think he's be a formidable candidate and will appeal to a broad spectrum of the voting public.

If it comes down to Rudy vs. Hillary, how many of us will sit at home and let Hillary take it by default?

The time to promote the kind of candidate we truly want is in the primaries.

Despite the failures of the Clinton administration to fight terrorism, the people of New York reelected her to the Senate with nothing but token opposition. I do not want that same crowd from either party giving us a fancy Madison Avenue labeled president and claiming they have "leadership." Let them keep it in New York...

Polite conversation and warm, fuzzy media blather in Rockefeller Plaza, lying seditious editorials, security leaks and outright treason from the media and elected officials unanswered and unconfronted will not help us win the election or the war.

The last thing we should be worried about is if a bunch of whinig idiots vote third party or stay home.

Anyone that does that is just as bad as the left wing slimeballs that will vote for Shillary.

If Rudy gets the nomination, he gets my vote. Period.

If it's someone else, they get my vote.

It's simple. STOP SHILLARY!

We can think for ourselves, but thanks anyway.

Besides, a lot of us remember a vanity the forum owner wrote before the November election that the most important thing is th WOT (which most common sense conservatives agree with) and in that regard, Rudy wins hands down.

He did not say we could not post Rudy posts. So since he sets the rules (which I respect) and I am following his rules NOT YOURS - I will continue to post the Rudy threads. When he tell us not to - then we will stop posting them. So if you don't like these threads - don't go on them. There are plenty of threads for you to go on.

I watched Duncan Hunter on C-Span yesterday. I know he's a great conservative, but he was so dull.

I would be very surprised to see him gain momentum.

Duncan hunter is the one and only choice for GOP nominee 2008.

And who the heck has heard of Duncan Hunter? But then, who (outside of a few states in the southeast) had heard of Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton a couple of years before their run?

"...evangelicals and social conservative go third party or stay home..."

That wouldn't be Rudy's fault. And while I understand how social and religious conservatives would have a problem voting for the likes of Giuliani, they would be responsible for their votes, not the candidates they did or didn't vote for.

Best way to avoid all of this is to find a real conservative who has a decent chance of winning (good clean background, solid conservative record, executive experience or at least 2 senate terms and some degree of name recognition). Social/religious conservatives are less likely to vote RINO than centrist 'Pubbies are to vote for true conservatives.

The nomination is hers.

She will be the Democratic nominee for President.

She has negatives among intelligent people like you.

To the brain dead, America hating left, she is golden.

Obviously, this was to be expected.

He would definitely beat any Democratic nominee - but part of that is because he is as socially liberal as any Democrat.

The best outcome that conservatives can hope for is that he will lose the nomination to a conservative and then he will campaign aggressively for the conservative nominee.

I do not want Giuliani picking the next justice.

What do you mean? McCain already did that. If you don't like Rudy, don't vote for him.

I have an open mind but like I say everday. Anybody But McCain.

If no one can step up to the plate who is conservative and beat McCain, then Rudy is the choice to beat McCain.

I have no qualms about it.

So if a real conservative can't "get it up" by next January, it looks like Rudy is the man to defend liberty and defeat McCain.

Which one, the cousin or the one he cheated on openly?

He cheated openly on both his first and second wives.

Of course, his second wife doesn't have much ground to complain, since she was the woman he openly cheated on his first wife with.

No she is not, she has never gotten over 45% support in any rat poll. Remember they love electablity and they know that about 40% to 45% of people polled say they would never vote for her.
