WASHINGTON - Republicans looking at Rudolph Giuliani's campaign for president always ask two questions - is he really running, and is he a "real Republican?"
They're probably not going to like the answers found by Newsday in Giuliani's government filings.
The ex-mayor still is holding back from submitting the simple one-page form declaring himself a possible candidate, despite raising $1.4 million to run. And asked what party he belongs to on a different form, Giuliani didn't say - he left the answer blank.

Note: I had to heavily edit the title to get it to fit in FR's parameters.
I didn't see this previously posted. If this was previously posted, my apologies in advance for the duplicate.
Grist for the mill.
Maybe he's running an honest campaign and he's having difficulty telling us..."Socialist". That fool from Vermont can run as his VP.
One down, two [Mitt & Johnny] to go.
Maybe he is just waiting for his endorsements from NARAL, Planned Parenthood, Queer Nation and NAMBLA.
But hopefully reality will set in and the Mayor and his ilk will see that it isn't going to happen for them in the present Republican party--just ask President Colin Powell...
For your enjoyment.
If you look closely, you can see Rudy's ex-wife/cousin over there on the right. She's wearing the hat.
He could easily win int primaries. The democratic ones. Maybe this is where he plans to run against Hitlary.
As a registered Republican, this left me cold:
"Giuliani's campaign confirmed that leaving off the Republican designation wasn't a typo. It was the campaign's 'judgment that we didn't have to fill in that box,' said a campaign lawyer. The lawyer said an update filed Wednesday lists him as a Republican, though that form couldn't be found on the Federal Election Commission Web site."
What would have been the big deal to declare himself a Republican on the first form?
It's a little thing, but considering that Mr. Giuliani hardly finds himself universally accepted by grassroots conservatives, at the very least, it was a stupid thing to do.
Just an oversight you say? Please, no more wise cracks, sitetest.
(Sniffle) Truth is, Rudy has an identity problem (sob).
Dang it all, it's hard for Julie-Annie to make the Big Decision-----to decide whether or not he is, in fact, a "Republican." Seeing as how Julie is pro-gay, anti-life, and for gun confiscation.
It's only natural he's reticent to align himself with "right-wing" Republicans.
Heck, with some good professsionl counseling, Rudy will find his "true self," and declare as a Democrat.
Sounds like Rudy maybe going one step further then Arnold. Arnold isn't a partisan anylonger. Ya know. LOL
Btw, where's my PING?! ;^)
HE'S NOT A REPUBLICAN!
"But hopefully reality will set in and the Mayor and his ilk will see that it isn't going to happen for them in the present Republican party--just ask President Colin Powell..."
You better hope you're wrong.
In spite of the juvenile comments by so called "real conservatives", as of now, Rudy is still the only candidate who will beat the Psycho Whore.
You guys better be more concerned about who in hell else is going to carry the R banner instead of trashing Rudy.
Please let me know WHY at this crucial time in the history of this Republic, there is no viable candidate that you can support?
Do you think it's too early?
Are you one of those who thinks Duncan Hunter is going to all of a sudden become a household name?
98% of American doesn't even know who he is while Shillary is out there in full swing and with more cash than anyone else.
Newsday isn't credible to make any assumptions whatsoever.
He'd be a great Democrat.
In fact if the Democrats ran somebody like him, I'd feel a lot better for the country...
Sorta like Zell Miller for President: A Democrat even Republicans could love...
Dear Reagan Man,
"Btw, where's my PING?! ;^)"
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea MAXIMA culpa.
The more people know about Rudy, the less viable he becomes. Glad we have a real candidate, Hunter!
I love my ilk.
"Please, no more wise cracks, sitetest."
I always try to give folks the benefit of the doubt.
The problem is, I was wrong to extend that benefit to him:
"Giuliani's campaign confirmed that leaving off the Republican designation wasn't a typo. It was the campaign's 'judgment that we didn't have to fill in that box,' said a campaign lawyer."
It wasn't an oversight; it was intentional.
Don't ask me why. I don't know.
Is what they have pointed out incorrect?
Except Zell is MORE conservative than Rudy. Quite a bit more.
I love my ilk.
The implied assumptions are.
Maybe he doesn't like being called a RINO! LOL!
We probably have at least the next 6 to 9 months to work this thing out.
The base of the GOP simply will not support an openly liberal candidate on social issues.
Do not rule out some possible new names to surface in the coming months--it's early, so let's not carve each other up too much...
Thanks for the ping. :-)
You're welcome! ;-)
LOL Maybe Rudy thinks he can switch to Democrat and beat out Hillary for the Dem nomination. Wouldn't be much of a stretch for him to join the Dem party.
Thats Nurse Chapel from Star Trek-TOS.
I know it's not Rudy--looks like Broadway star Gwen Verdon...
Good Morning defconw! Where have you been? Yeesh! you would think you were planning a wedding or something! ;-)
LOL. You forgot the ACLU and the Separation of Church and State goons. Not to forget the NOW fanatics.
During Giuliani's run for the NY Senate against Hillary, a chapter of the National Organization of Women endorsed him over Hillary Clinton. You read that right, in 2000 the Dulles Chapter of NOW endorsed Giuliani over Hillary Clinton.
This Freeper is voting for Rudy for his leadership qualities and abilities....two very important characteristics I haven't seen any other Republican candidates possess....other than their HUGE ego.
NO! He is not a real Republican.

Yes, he's running, and NO he's NOT a Republican, he's a RINO. Although lately, it's almost unable to tell the two apart!!
I'm not sure how you define 'viable', but there are certainly candidates I can support, i.e. Duncan Hunter. Also, it's a long time until the Presidential election. You seem kind of in a hurry to write everyone else off. Why?
I've always thought that there was some percentage of Republicans who would vote for president for anyone with an "R" attached to his back, no matter how liberal that candidate might be.
In this case, it appears that it may not even be necessary to have the "R" attached to his back.
LOL! Who knew!
The name of my pinglist is:
STOP GIULIANI 2008!
Dear Reagan Man,
Well, then, add me!
Golly, you are s-o-o-o-o sensitive----LOL.
BTW, I read your "oversight" post as a sarcasm.
You read it correctly.
Giuliani would be right at home in the Democrat party.
Maybe Julie's top secret strategy is to not let anyone know his party perference----then he can sneak in as the Shadow candidate.
It's time to milk the ilk...
