I feel bad about Rudy in 2008. He was not a hard core conservative but he was WAY better than: McCain, Huckabee, Mitt and sadly Fred - who appeared to sell out to McCain.

Depends on the issue.

He would have made a good president. And I take him at his word that he would have appointed strict constructionists judges.

Ditto. He didn't try to pretend to be something he wasn't, accepted the will of the voters graciously, and worked to do what was best for the party after the primary. Kudos to that, even if I don't agree with him on key issues.

I do not agree with all of Rudy’s positions but he is one of the best “Crisis Managers” this country has ever seen. If and when this country has a crisis he would be the man I would follow. (Remember 9/11!!)

So he’s sticking up for Sarah, it seems. Good for him. I’m not sure she’s our best candidate, but it’s time for the whispering campaign to stop. If the critics want to challenge her on her ideas, go ahead. But stop the whining, wimpy closet criticisms.

Good on Mister Mayor - he gets it. I am hesitant to over-ping Sarah's List today, but this is a short clip that seems to sum up the cowardly attacks on her by some anonymous "corrupt bastards," AND the repercussions that will follow should they follow through.

What a pathetic loser of a man.

There is a kind of poetic justice in all this though because he WAS unfairly trumpeted as a "genius" during the Bush years and now the infinitely-more-accurate label "moron" is the one that will stick as his final legacy.

And it's all his own doing.

Kind of ironic, hey Karl? Especially for a GENIUS!

If the GOP wants to entrust its voters with choosing its presidential nominees then NOW is the time to reform the primary process:

  1. Close all primaries in every state. In states which infringe on the peoples' freedom of association by requiring open primaries, then hold closed caucuses instead.
  2. Stop having the first contests in flamingly blue states. Having the first GOP primary in Wyoming would be a good start.
  3. The nominee should be decided quickly, but allow for no-name conservatives to get known at the outset of the process. This can be done by having the primary order go as follows:
    1. Low population red states (Wyoming, Alaska, North and South Dakota, etc.).
    2. High population red states (Texas, Georgia, etc.)
    3. High population blue states (these still can have large numbers of conservatives: California, Florida, etc.)
    4. Low population blue states (New Hampshire, Iowa, etc.)
  4. Enforce the rules... any state that goes out of turn should have its delegates stripped and re-distributed to the states that do follow them. To make the contest end quickly, have these delegates redistributed to the lower population states.

This system will ensure that liberals have the smallest possible impact on the GOP nominating process.

Hmm, I recall a lot of pics of Rudy dressed like a woman and anger at Sean for putting him on the radio show so much.

Why is everything in red?

I’m surprised we have one or two people who admire Guiliani. I was one of the Guiliani folks who managed to escape purging. I lived in NYC in the ‘90s and can attest to his excellent service to our city. I don’t agree with him on abortion either but he would have made an excellent president (although my husband says he ran a lousy campaign). I truly think it’s too late for him now. The Divine Sarah has stolen his thunder!

As a NYer I would have loved for him to run for Gov. or Senator....

I will vote Republican for these, but dont think they can win in this state....Rudy on the other hand would have won either senator or governor and would have been conservative on many issues...

I would never vote for Rudy in the primaries for President...but like someone said, he would have been better than the smelly $h!t we now have in office and better than McCain.

Giuliani: And let's not go through the negativity, we got a big admission here, that Sarah Palin has every right to make her case to the Republican party, how about we let Republicans decide, not their so-called "leaders," whether she's qualified or not. Let her make her case, like everybody else gets to make their case. I got a chance to make mine, I didn't succeed, but I'm happy about he fact that I got a chance to make my case. Let's give her a chance to make her case, and let the Republican party decide, not a bunch of so-called "leaders." And I think they're missing the whole point, of what's going on in our election right now, cause that's the worst possible way, to take that kind of a lesson out of this election.

I think this time, we've gotta have a national committee that disciplines Republicans who attack other Republicans, and I see it starting already, and it really disturbs me. And I think whoever does it is going to pay a big price this time. Look at all those races where so called "establishment Republicans" were rejected... there's a reason for that. People are trying to tell us something, we should be listening, and I've got every confidence that... that this new class elected in Congress is going to do what they were elected for.

Or AG. I don’t like his pro choice stance at all, but he does have his place in a pubbie admin. Glad to see he is sticking up for Sarah, I think he sees the train coming and he wants to be on it instead of under it.

This was a great clip by Rudy, but let me say one thing about the Politico's articles about the GOP wanting to stop Palin.

They're simply not true, there is no full conspiracy of all GOP elites, it's just Politico trying to undermine our votes tomorrow, dispirit us and pretend like it's all hopeless. As to the idea they re all trying to get rid of her, it's more like a bunch of competing elites trying to ascend to power as this new wave of voter anger tries to rid the country of the dems tomorrow. It's a power trip not involving her.

If there is a conspiracy, it's Romney, plus a few lone wolves (from other campaigns) that fear she will displace their power and fiefdoms.

Take heart, as the video clip on the link said, (if she runs) she'll get her chance to plead her case to the electorate.

Right now, let's concentrate on getting rid of as many of the "corrupt bastards" as possible tomorrow.

The support for Murkowski and the non-support for O’Donnell should have given everyone a clue as to what we could expect from the Old Guard, particularly in terms of Sarah.

Rudy would have been better than anyone else that ran. Of course, I will never forget that he backed Mario Cuomo over James GOV. Calculated, but stupid.

Dame shame Giuliani elected senator—instead of the Hillarybeast.

I think there are still a bunch of us around who held our tongue. Those who spoke out got the boot. There were views I couldn't agree with (abortion, gun rights) that made him unacceptable on here and as the party's candidate for President. But his actions as prosecutor and mayor (before, during and after 9/11) earned him my admiration. IIRC he believed it was his dury to attend each and every funeral of a fireman and police office who died in the 9/11 attacks. That alone puts points up in his favor. His time as a candidate has passed but in spite of his flaws, I can't help but like and respect the man.

Respect for Rudy goes up again. Say what you will, but at least he took his medicine in 2008 and didn't burn bridges after. He continues to push the party for others and does it with class. Unlike Crisp and the Alaskan Princess.
