Posted on 01/27/2011 9:35:18 AM PST by Walter Scott Hudson
Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate, talked Tea Party... in a lively interview with CNN's Piers Morgan that [aired] at 9 ET Monday night.As an active member of the Tea Party movement in Minnesota, I may be expected to take issue with Giuliani's assertion. However, one of the charms of the Tea Party is its defiance of expectation. I actually agree with the mayor.
Overall, the Tea Party is a "good" movement, Giuliani said, but it has also attracted "a couple of people that are a little crazy ... "
There are, in fact, a couple people in the Tea Party that are a little crazy. There is a sound explanations for their presence, and for my ability as a Tea Party activist to acknowledge them.

Rudy, would you say the Democratic Party is mostly good but have a couple of crazies?
Is Rudy still pro-abortion?
Only someone who is crazy could be pro-choice
eh, i can deal with a couple of crazy people as oppose to an entire group of crazy people.. and you know what i’m talking about.
Just keep playing to their agenda and feeding them quotes, you idiots
STOP LETTING THEM DICTATE THE AGENDAS
Other than that he's a just another good'ol boy eh!
That means a lot coming from you Rudy.
Look, the left has a PR machine that cranks out letters - letters they say are from conservatives - (some liberal who hates us but attended ONE tea party) and holds himself out as a ‘member’... Then the hate letter is sent to those on the line, members of the MSM, Republicans and Democrats alike. Rush caught the game years ago - many never catch it...
The GoP is about to be cast to the side of the road if it falls for any of the Rinos amongst us.. it will end up alongside the carcass of a braying ass in a ditch of their own making.
Let them drink TEA.
* The Republican and Democrats have ran the country into a bottomless economic pit.
* Our standard of living is nose diving.
* Millions have entered illegally through our lawless violent borders during war time.
* Tens of millions of American are out of work, millions have lost their jobs, homes, investments, retirements, medical benefits, businesses etc...
But the Tea Party people are crazy?
Tokyo Rose would be proud of the political insiders operating in the U.S. today.
Can you name one, Rudy?
And Rudy has no issues?

Giuliani Accused Of ‘Notorious Adultery’
Estranged Wife Sues Ex-N.Y. Mayor For Divorce
By Dan Collins
(AP) Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s estranged wife has filed for divorce, citing adultery.
The filing by Donna Hanover, 52, came more than a year and a half after Giuliani filed to divorce her, citing cruel and inhuman treatment.
Giuliani is typical of the “Republican” that it takes to run a toilet like New Yowk. Sam type that it would take to run ANY “big City”.
I would say that all Tea Party members are more sane than any Liberal.
I see you’re good for trying to APPEAR PC...
How about giving us folks just ONE example of a Tea Party “crazy”, huh? Just one?
Nope, didn’t think ya could...
You, sir, are done.
A TEA partier.
Hey Rudy, does your third wife agree with you?
Of course he can’t name even one.
The REAL problem is that, like all northeastern elites, he is made very uneasy by this product of flyover land, a mushrooming grassroots movement over which he has no control, and which offers no social strata based on what school one attended, or who one knows.
Overall, the Tea Party is a “good” movement, Giuliani said, but it has also attracted “a couple of people that are a little crazy ... “
Right Giuliani. Two Tea Party posers. Compared to how many Rino’s in the Republican party. Not to mention the majority of Demorats...
Thank you Mayor, you’re dismissed.
Rudy, we are all a little crazy...just not as crazy as you.
I agree. We are fighting the bigotry of the Elites on all sides of the political spectrum.
That said, I think Rudy should provide concrete examples of what he means here. I find the tea partiers a heck of a lot saner than most.
When people are attracted on the basis of common sense (and the tea parties are actually parties of common sense), they tend to be significantly saner than the rest.
I wonder if he means the tea partiers are a little more colorful or colloquially outspoken...that I would certainly agree with. Tea partiers are regular Americans and Americans come from such a wide spectrum of personalities and cultures that they are guaranteed to appear "quaint" to someone from a different culture (and folks sometimes think "quaint" is a bit "crazy" though it most certainly is not).
Rudy obviously needs to attend more family reunions.
Like McCain, he’s groveling for the MSM’s approval.
ALot of crazies. Just like every other group under the sun, Rudy. But do you talk that way about your queer rights buddies? The gun grabbing lobby?
“Is Rudy still pro-abortion?”
Probably and he is still a RINO. The Tea Party probably scares him a little.
Rudy, you might be right but that is what LOVE does to one. People of the Tea Party LOVE their Country first, not the POWER over their Country. You should start to feel some of that LOVE, its a good thing.
Did Rudy get his honorary Psycologists degree from Sean Hannity, or is he just wingin’ it?
Rudy is a little crazy and his children appear to be a real mess - as is his last ex wife.
His presidential campaign was a total disaster. Enough said.
Looks like Rudy’s 2012 campaign will be as brilliant as his 2008 campaign.
Where is the photo of Rudy dressed in drag as a chorus whore?
As opposed to FLIRG, referring to Hillary Clinton.
“First Lady Is Really a Guy” (or “really gay”)
It could apply to Moochelle as well, but I’m not going to say what the “G” might stand for.
That’s not photoshopped?
I remember a photo of Rudy dressed in drag fot the gay “pride” parade.
Now I’m not sure if that wasn’t photoshopped, too.
Rudy is a RINO jerk and a perv besides.
Oh, wow, that’s NOT photoshopped!!!
And that loon is calling *US* crazy?
He’s not just a jerk, he’s a jerk^2 (squared).
Some of the RW extremist kooks attempting to affiliate themselves with the Tea Party Movement are people like Cindy Sheehan’s ex-boyfriend, Lyndon LaRouche
Live thread from Searchlight Nevada - Tea Party Express
A couple of people out of several million. Not bad.
And when ever they show up at a Tea Party, they are asked to leave. And escorted out if they don't. Gently but firmly
The ratio of crazies in the leftist camp is much MUCH higher.
Yah... hey Rudy, have ya ever seen Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews et-al via MSNBC... how about Van Jones, Sheila Jackson Lee, Nancy Pelosi, heck, even the president himself... and on the R side of the ledger, how’s the Meagan McCain doin ya for cheers, or Colonoscopy Powell? Crazies to the left of me, Wimps to the right, here I am stuck in the middle with YOU... the middle is so wishy washy Rudy, why don’t you just declare your the Rino candidate before someone else beats you to it, ya schlub.
