Skip to comments.Steve Forbes: Right Man for Our Times (Rudy Giuliani)
Posted on 04/17/2007 6:25:48 PM PDT by FairOpinion
Rudy Giuliani would make a superb president. he combines Reaganesque vision with extraordinary attention to detail. He is strong on national security and also has the principles and policies to strengthen the economy. He is a tax cutter and a foe of the federal income tax's complexity.
He is a fervent free trader, much needed, as global protectionist pressures are rising. He has also demonstrated an antipathy toward unnecessary regulation. If Sarbanes-Oxley hasn't been amended by the time Giuliani takes office, he will push hard to remove its counterproductive elements.
While I disagree with him in certain areas--I am pro-life, and he is pro-choice--he has made it abundantly clear that he would appoint John Roberts/Samuel Alito-type judges to the federal bench.
Giuliani cut or eliminated 23 taxes. The top rate for the city income tax, for instance, was knocked down by 21%. The overall tax burden for a New York City resident went down a remarkable 17%.
During Giuliani's tenure the Big Apple's economy blossomed: 423,000 new jobs were created. More people were moving into the city than leaving it. That he achieved so much going against a generations-old spend-tax-welfare political ethos is astonishing.

As right as Forbes was for the times in 2000.
Don't you rudy people have some secret site where you figure out who is supposed to post what?
Any man who would deny Americans their Second Amendment rights is the wrong man for our times.
Check your freepmail! It’s important!
Whats with this Steve Forbes fascination?
Next we will see an article written by Ted Olson.

“Rudy Giuliani would make a superb president. he combines Reaganesque vision with extraordinary attention to detail. He is strong on national security and also has the principles and policies to strengthen the economy. He is a tax cutter and a foe of the federal income tax’s complexity.”
Then Judith Giuliani’s ex husbands.
Human Events called it the most effective display of fiscal conservatism in U.S. municipal economics in history.
Repeating it doesn't make it true Steve.
Giuliani's idea of a strict constructionist: Someone who could come down as being for or against Roe v. Wade.
Sure thing Steve, we believe ya. By the way, how's Rudy with that flat tax of yours?
I should note that the actual title of the piece is simply “Right man for our times”, which was a clever way by Steve Forbes to insinuate that Rudy was “right-wing”, not “left-wing”.
But the first pro-rudy poster wasn’t wise enough just use the name Forbes made for his editorial, and renamed it “The right man for our times”.
Which was better than FairOpinion here who re-wrote the title so it looks like Rudy Giuliani wrote the piece and that Steve Forbes is actually the “right man for our times”
Actually, Steve Forbes would be a much better choice for President than Rudy Giuliani.
If you can’t get it right the first time. Just do it over.
LOL Same complaints, different day.
Oh, and it was a nice try leaving off the actual link in the “link” section in the vain hopes that nobody would notice you were simply reposting the same article with a slightly different title.
I might not be any good at writing, but I have a fantastic memory for what I’ve already read. :-)
Heh, areafiftyone noticed you messed up, and you need to clean up right away!!!! Check your FreepMail!!!!!
