Rudy takes off gloves: slams Hillary in New York Times ad.
Politico.com ^ | 9/14/07 | Jonathon Martin

Posted on 09/14/2007 10:39:36 AM PDT by Mrs. Plutarch

Marrying a political attack with a fundraising gambit, Rudy has fashioned his own ad for the New York Times. He blasted it out to supporters this afternoon as part of a money solicitation and has put a portion of it on his website just above a contribution form.

Rudy earns points in my book for running this ad in the New York Times, pounding both Hillary and MoveOn.org while defending the honorable General Petraeus' record.

Unimpressive ad.

So did he get it at the MoveOn rate?

I wish some one would post the ad. You (generic) can disagree with Rudy, but I will question the sanity and the intelligence of any body who claims that there is no difference between Rudy and Hillary.

Regardless of whether anyone is a Rudy supporter, this ad is brilliant and I truly hope he runs it, and many others follow his lead.

Rudy did run the ad... I have a copy of it from the NYT that I purchased at my local Starbucks this morning. It is a full page ad and I heard that Rudy received the discounted rate but I cannot confirm that. I love the fact that the ad exposes Hillary’s despicable comments.

I respectfully disagree. The fact that any Republican called her out at all is remarkable.
In addition, the ad is much more effective than the MoveOn ad. It will resonate with more Americans regardless of the whacked out demographic that reads the Slimes.

Personally I think this ad just gives MoveOn some FREE advertising. Why reprint their negative ad within your ad? I don’t think to highly of it for that reason alone.

Take out your OWN ad and say what you mean. Forget about reprinting THEIR ad.

I love the idea, but I think the ad could have been more hard hitting and coherent.

Otherwise, way to go Rudy.

If a candidate I am against is going to spend his money, this is a good way to do it.

The ad also serves the Republican and conservative messages as well, it is a twofer, it benefits the candidate paying for it, while also delivering for all the party as a whole.

Unimpressive ad.

It does the job, but the quiet, dignified ad copy is not the draw, I agree. The context of the ad is far more impressive than its content, which is 'good enough'.

The mere fact of an ad ripping Hiliary in the NYT, coupled with the disgrace of Move-On.org AND the defence of General Petraeus, a pivotal figure in the war on Islam make the ad a master stroke.

Hat tip to Rudy for going after “she who’s name must not be mentioned” and Can’tMoveOn.org for their trashing of a good man.

I don’t support Rudy for other reasons.

I’m a Fred fan but won’t come on your topic to talk up my guy.

Their ad was despicable. Their ad should be shown in every newspaper in the country so the American people know who the enemy is and Hillary is their candidate of choice. Good Job Rudy.

Heh.

Looks like Rudy - the guy conservative Freepers love to hate - is the only one with the gonads to take on both the media _and_ the 'rats (as if they aren't one and the same).

He was EXACTLY this way as mayor of New York: a scrapper who wasn't afraid to take on the opposition head-to-head. He didn't always win, but at least he fought for his positions as if he was actually _trying_ to win.

He will be this way as president too - EXACTLY the opposite of the current occupant of that office.

So, what does Mr. Thompson have to say about all this?

“Asked to respond, Hillary spokesman Mo Elleithee said, “Mayor Giuliani might be to content to bury his head in the sand when it comes to ending the war in Iraq, but Sen. Clinton will continue to ask the hard questions in an effort to get out troops home.”

too content to? content to? our troops?

Re: Go Rudy! To the Thompson supporters, Fred is no Rudy.

Hey, I'll vote for Rudy... if he wins the GOP nomination. Matter of fact, I'll vote for any Republican ('Cept Ron Paul, but he hasn't a Hsuman's chance) against the Dems!

If we want the Dems to win... all we have to do is not vote for the GOP. Sadly, several folks here on FR will sit out the election out because their horse is not in the last race.

AND that is the best way... to find yourself and the whole danged nation neck deep in horse manure!

“To the Thompson supporters, Fred is no Rudy.”

Reminds me of the Peanuts comic strip where Charlie Brown gets fed up and says “Someday I’ll be president and then you’ll all be sorry!” To which Lucy says “I’ll say we will!”

Thank GOD for that! Why would we want to Rudy's -- or two Freds for that matter -- to chose from? Prefer Fred, but would vote for EITHER against sHrillary. And this was a good ad by Rudy.

Quote: “I respectfully disagree. The fact that any Republican called her out at all is remarkable.”

Exactly, the add was a perfect blend of attack and restraint. Hillary lives, thrives and depends on being able to play the victim. It is imperative to attack her, but it must be done in such a way as to make her look pathetic and weak if and when she plays the victim card as I am sure she will here.

So, what does Mr. Thompson have to say about all this?

He said this:

"I understand there's a front page ad that's been taken out by this outfit called MoveOn.org in the New York Times today," said Thompson at a campaign rally at Doc's Barbecue in this capital city. "And it basically accuses our general who's leading our troops in Iraq right now of betraying his own country. This outfit basically, in large part, funds the Democratic party. I call upon the Democratic party and all those Democratic contenders for the White House to disavow this libel against this brave American."

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2007/09/10/thompson-calls-on-democrats-to-return-moveonorg-donations/

Can't we be on the same side on this one? Fred ripped the Donks, and Rudy ripped them -- and Rudy gets points for using the more effective forum. Good on 'em both! Let's resist the attempt to "eat our own"...

This shows what a world of difference there is between McCain & Rudy. McCain would never take on Hilliary, after all, they are political allies. I still remember the meet the press interview from a year or so ago, with McCain & Hillary sitting side by side. A real love fest. McCain kept saying during the interview with Russert that Hillary would make a great president. Russert was beaming. It was sickening.
