The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee today announced that veteran actor and director Robert Duvall, along with his wife Luciana, are supporting Mayor Rudy Giuliani for President of the United States.
The Duvalls will also host a fundraiser for the Mayor at their Virginia home later this month.
Rudy has consistently proven hes ready to confront tough challenges, said Duvall. I dont normally get involved in politics, but I think the stakes are too high this election. Mayor Giuliani has the executive experience, proven record and bold vision needed to lead our country. Luciana and I are proud to support him.
As a fan and an admirer of Mr. Duvalls work for some time, I am honored to have Robert and his wife Lucianas support and help on our campaign, said Mayor Giuliani. Their willingness to not only offer their support, but to open their home is a tremendous contribution. I am excited to have the Duvalls on our team.
Still, Rob't Duvall's one of my favorites. I LOVE the smell of Napalm in the morning. That's bold talk for a one-eyed fatman! I have a special practice, I work for only one client.
Duvall does kinda look like him. Just put on some glasses and add a lisp, and he could be a rudy double.
Duvall’s one of the finest actors hollywood has ever produced.
I don’t really care what his politics are. Im just happy he is a republican.
Obviously he does not value his gun rights. He was never a wartime consigliere.
Maybe this is a ruse - the plan’s to take Rudy to a Nevada brothel and get him liquored up.
At least its not yet another hollywood-Democrat endorsement.
Robert Duvall is a Republican, not a conservative.
One guy who is a conservative and has been an actor, is the same guy Duvalla dn his wife will be voting for in Nov2008. Fred Thompson.
I saw Giuliani on the Hannity-Colmes show tonight, after Pres. Bush’s speech, and I have to say he came across very well - strong on national defense and strong on taking on the dems - but I just couldn’t help imagining him in a dress. I don’t know why that is.
Rooty is a liberal Democrat at heart and a Republican in name only. Liberal RINO!
Well, Ted Nugent is strong on guns and a dope on some nannystate stuff.
I wont make me stop listening to his music.
Ask yourself, what is Duval's connection with the Rooty?
I like DUval as an actor but know little of whether he is politically savy or not. Most actors are not politically savy, and are real flakey people when it comes to supporting a politician.
Clint Eastwood is politically astute, even though I do not agree with his politics most of the time. Barbara Streisand is a moonbat. Matt Damen is a moon bat, etc. The Governator is politically astute, but has his flakey moments which we have seen lately.
If I were Rooty, I would not be too flattered that an actor endorses him. Its a very mixed record on whether it is positive or not.
I wouldn't vote for Rooty if John Wayne emerged into life again and endorsed him.
Did you know Robert’s Dad was a Naval Admiral? His Mom was once an actress.
I had no idea.
No matter how you cut it, most "conservatives" in Hollywood stars, music stars and actors, would really qualify as RINOs (libertarian-lites.)
Robert Duvall's Dad was a Navy Admiral. Robert Duvall is not normally a Republican he's a libertarian...but looks like he's supporting a Republican this time around. He'd NEVER support a dem. EVER...he's from the old school...America First...
Great actor! At least he isn’t licking the derrierres of people like John Kerry...
My favorite line from his movies (on par with “I love the smell of naplam...” is from the movie “Open Range” when he gave a toast:
“Good health to them who has it comin...”
