Rudy Giulianiís Not Ruling Out Another Presidential Run
The Blaze ^ | May 7, 2011 at 12:03pm | Billy Hallowell

Posted on 05/07/2011 12:41:53 PM PDT by ez

In a speech yesterday to the Republican National Lawyers Association, Rudy Giuliani had plenty to say about President Obama’s foreign policy, American exceptionalism and the Sept. 11 terror attacks. But, his most ear-catching words focused on his potential bid for the presidency in 2012:

“I will sure think about it. … It’s too early and I want to see how it all develops. My major goal is to elect a Republican in 2012. If it turns out that I’m the best one to do that, I can probably be talked into doing it or convince myself to do it. If I thought somebody else had a better chance of doing it, I would be a very enthusiastic supporter of somebody else.”

He’s got a better chance at a comeback than, say, Newt.

If he gets undoubteldy, seriously pro-life among, other things I would look at him as viable. But that’s just me.

There will be NO campaign for Rudy on FR. If you wish to support this abortionist RINO, you’ll have to do it elsewhere.

And that’s a guarantee you can take to the bank!!

He dressed up in Drag twice. Once was enough to disqualify him. Twice means he has “secret desires”.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has a long way to go to convince most conservatives to vote for him in a primary election. I think his polling will discover that reality and he'll decide not to run. I hope so. Despite the lefts attempts to prop up Obama as 'invincible' Republicans realize how vulnerable Obama is and see an opportunity to defeat him. I'm sure some are deeply concerned with how Obama is decimating our economy and has a ruinous foreign policy but for some, they see an embattled president facing a bad economy he hasn't 'fixed'; and a weak foreign policy along with a series of gaffes that have eroded Obama's once-solid appeal to many Americans. This is why the left keeps screaming 'racist' whenever a Republican politician criticizes Obama's administration. They're scared and getting desperate. They should be.

He is not on my short list. But look at him more favorably than some of the Rinos.

Anyone that can turn around the hell hole that NYC was and is now becoming again has outstanding leadership, and managerial skills and sound decision making. He is also has the ability to articulate a plan and get people on board. He has some very strong negatives as well.

But compared to Romney, Newt, Huckster, Pawlenty, I think he would be a better choice.

Pretty sad choices though...

I don’t think a lot of them are “ruling it out”. It seems to be the common “meme” of any R whom are asked if they are running.

I truly believe they are waiting to see what Sarah does, just as we are.

I personally think she will run. I’m just sitting here, impatiently waiting for the “attack” command from our next POTUS......Sarah Palin, and our next VP Lt. Col. Alan West!

No he doesn’t.

The log cabin wing has been largely amputated.

He’ll have to runas a Dem, although for 2012, that might fly.

FR is a pro-life, pro-family site. Those of you who wish to support homosexual “rights” and abortion “rights” are welcome to do so ELSEWHERE!! There will be NO campaigns for Rudy or Romney on FR. Not now, not EVER!! Guaranteed!!

FR aggressively defends our GOD-given right to LIFE and freedom of speech without interference by abortionist trolls!!

So did Milton Berle, Jack Lemmon and Flip Wilson. But then they didn’t run for President.

Growing up in New York City, I remember Giuliani's career.

Giuliani served in the Reagan administration as Associate Attorney General. Did a good job. Then he was appointed U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. He did a terrific job, especially with the Mafia Commission Trial. As Mayor of New York, he was unparalleled, especially during 9/11. Believe, me, after General David Dinkins, Rudy was a breath of fresh air.

For New Yorkers, he's very good. On the national stage, not so much; we can do a lot better.

If we do not take a stand we will continue to get nothing but RINO candidates.

Making the statement that you will vote for anyone claiming to be republican is irresponsible and damaging to the future of our Nation.

Republican means something to me, it is more than just a title.

I wish he would run for Senate instead. We need the RATS out of there and Rudy is one of the Republicans that could win in New York.

I couldn’t agree with you more. It was Rudy who tried to invent the term “attack gun” on national television after the Bernie Goetz shooting. He’s just too leftwing and embarrassing to tolerate.

“Republican primary voters, however, are ruling out Rudy as a candidate.”

They certainly did last time; he had a showing similar to Al Sharpton.

Less the cause than the excuse.

In my view, if Rudy wants to run for anything he should run against Schumer.
