Isn't Rudy a Roman Catholic? I must have missed the part during the ceremony: "and until death do you part... or until your wife becomes a b*tch and another hot piece of a$$ catches your eye."

So you are taking it as gospel that he announced his separation from his wife at a press conference. Because the media would never lie or misrepresent anything about a republican.

And of course, the wife would never ever lie or misrepresent anything either. Right?????????

"And, there are Rudy supporters on FR who decry Newt's "personal baggage." Rudy is no different, just much farther to the left."





I like Rudy but his baggage is many times worse than Newt's. Newt has a messy period in his history, but Rudy sounds like he has basic character and judgment flaws that are a big part of who he is, and that ain't good.

I agree, if one cannot remain faithful and trustworthy within the home, how can we trust him to lead us.

Now, if he has sought forgivenss from God and the people he sinned against that would be another story. I know of people that have turned their life around in that way.

Either way he is too left for me and I am not happy with the candidates the GOP are presenting.

"Hanover once stood outside a shower at Gracie Mansion, expecting to confront Judith Nathan, Giuliani’s mistress, now his third wife. In the event, a startled golfing friend of Giuliani’s emerged."
Great scene. Could be even made into a campaign commercial with a theme: "See what kind of cranks he's had to handle? What is an ahmadinejad compared to THAT?"

Tancredo and Hunter are both outstanding candidates. I only hope one of them can win the presidential bid, I know however, it is a long shot.

Exactly. Presumably that's why he needs a "secret campaign plan" ... "How to act conservative long enough to fool the voters."

It's worked for others ...

I'll give him his due, it is NOT easy to rise to the occasion after a major disaster. Many can do so and some better than others.

And then there's Louisiana. Remember Blanco and Nagin?

I believe Rudy extreme liberal views are enough to disqualify him personally, but add in all the personal baggage and well forgetaboutit.

Incest, according to Webster: sexual intercourse between persons so closely related that they are forbidden by law to marry; also : the statutory crime of such a relationship
Marrying a 2nd cousin isn't incest.

I wasn't aware of that. Truly despicable. I can't say I've walked a mile in the man's shoes, but to abandon my poor wife because she becomes crippled...

Of course you weren't. The MSM is always covering for him. He spins what happened by "taking responsibility" for the end of the marriage, attributing it to his "immaturity and bad behavior." That makes it sound like she divorced him. She didn't; he dumped her. From what I have been able to find, she was devastated. Still she has so much class she says only kind things about the jerk. (Well, he is the father of her three children.)

Even if I have to accept a guy like Romney.

I do not have a problem voting for Romney if he is the nominee (although I worry about his electability). I feel he is fundamentally a good and decent man.

It's close, but Newt bringing divorce papers for his hospitalized-with-cancer-surgery wife to sign is pretty darn hard to top in terms of sleaziness.

He was with his wife when I met him a few months ago, they seem very happy together...and very normal as well. Are we going to hold past mistakes against candidates forever? There is no one who will pass the test of a totally error-free life and especialy when looked at with such scrutiny and criticism, as well as the exaggeration of haters in the media and even his own party.

I have two female second cousins that I know well. The idea of sex with them is unthinkable, since we played together as little kids. Anyone who is friends with a second cousin of the opposite sex will (like me) be sickened by this.

As a matter of fact, I remember the current Mrs. G living in Gracie Mansion while Rudy was still married to #2, and unless you are such an "old" friend that your memory has totally failed, you should too. It was quite the scandal.

I don't understand why anyone on FR would want someone who is so far to the left of any GOP presidential candidate in history to seek that office on the GOP ticket.

In a couple months - at most - Rudy will formally withdraw.

He's got more skeletons in his closet than Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

You and I have the same point of view on the matter. I'm simply saying that people can legitimately beat up Giuiliani without resorting to dishonesty. Marriage to a 2nd cousin is not incest. It's not illegal. Medicine doesn't discourage it, last I read.

If she's a conservative Republican, I'd vote for Elvira. She's cool.

There's a difference between a normal "non-saint" and someone with chronic infidelity and honesty problems.

Last thing we need is another bout of Clinton style ethics in the White House.

IMO, Rudy would be fine as Secretary of Defense, National Security Advisor or Secretary of Homeland Security -- basically something that wouldn't be screwed up by his liberal views.

That is why McCain seems sane to me. lol.

Oh yeah, McCain is just a WONDERFUL guy, he divorced the wife who waited faithfully (a woman who was crippled) while he was a POW and immediately married the daughter of a very wealthy man and ran for office. The daughter ended up a few years ago accused of stealing drugs from a charity but got off because she was "addicted". Yeah, McCain is a real saint he is.

I won't hide it. I am a big Rudy fan. He was tested and came out with flying colors.

He's not perfect. The stupid "no vote" idiots on this site guaranteed the Dem victory.

Hanover is a loose cannon. She was a newsbabe in south Florida back in the early 80s, I think. She was pretty unhinged even back then...lots of rumors about her off-camera life. A hottie, for sure, but something of a head case, too....

2nd Cousin? No Problem!
Liberal? No Problem!
Treats Women like ashtrays (Clinton Like) No Problem!

THERE IS NOTHING that can change these "Rudy for President" Freepers opinions. They support him because they are Liberal. They are part of the shift in America to the left. Thanks to their support, America going to have a tough time in the next 20 years.

Lets crush those stupid conservative voters and openly support a Liberal for the GOP two years out!

I am glad that these Freepin Liberals have come out of the closet.

And we will hear:

2. Made to fell guilty that after all these years, America still has not elected a woman or a "African American" president.
3. That Mormons have weird beliefs.

Concur about the saint/virgin part, but tough/smart/electable doesn't mean squat unless the politics of the candidate in question are conservative. .....and Rudy's qualifications on that front are highly questionable, to put it mildly.

Let me in on what's wrong or illegal or unseemly about marrying a 2nd cousin. I've forgotten.

Nothing illegal really.

Myself, I won't vote for him and it is not because of incest...
