Skip to comments.Goodbye Rudy, Tuesday (Giuliani a goner--tawdry personal life a turnoff)
Posted on 01/25/2008 5:08:53 PM PST by Liz
For 50 days, Giuliani had the Sunshine State nearly to himself........hes sucked up to Miami's Cuban vote, pandered in Cape Canaveral about the space program, tried to scare retirees in South Florida. There he is riding in a fire truck in a Miami parade, trailed by angry firefighters who blame him for multiple failures when NY was attacked.......in the Panhandle, he's the consummate Yankees fan trying to look down-home on the Redneck Riviera.
Yet, the more they see of Giuliani, the more his poll numbers tank...... Rudys campaign is in meltdown. Amazing how much voters bring up his tawdry personal life. They laugh about Rudy in drag and Rudy when he lived with a gay couple.....in a state full of mothers who live for phone calls from long-distance adult children, theres one thing they cant abide Rudys wreck of a family life......people roll their eyes over the story of how Giulianis third wife picked him up in a cigar bar while he was still married to the second Mrs. Hizzoner.
I heard no end of condemnation over the mayors estrangement from his two children. He spent more than anyone but Mitt Romney in NH, and finished a distant fourth. And as Michael Powell and Russ Buettner documented in a remarkable piece in the Times earlier this week, Giuliani ruled by crushing anyone who dared to cross him.

ROTFL----love, love, love it----that analysis has gotta go into the political history books. Man, Rooty got piped but good.
Giuliani worships at the Church of Whatever Works For Me. He has no moral center, he has no spiritual fidelity, and is completely without political loyalty. Says he's "conservative" but sucked up to liberals, sought Liberal backing, and employed numerous Liberals as Mayor/candidate. He worships abortion, gay rights, and gun grabbing----all completly against Republican principles.
Giuliani's most fervent wish is to religiously cleanse the party and dump so/cals off the party lifeboat. Rudy can get on his knees and hail Beelzebub dawn til dusk-----that ain't gonna happen.
I’d like to see anyone at the NYT write an article about Hillary with this kind of disdain. I won’t hold my breath.
Rudy puts Rudy first.
Well, the Slimes had better brace itself for a few interesting letters to the editor from that region...
Doubt it. That’s what the people who live/vacation there call it.
Liz, you and I were predicting this months ago!
“We’ve gotta admit the NYT came up with a great headline for this article.”
Mick and Keith
That’s the common name, even for locals.
Wont happen and that is why the irrelevent picture with Rezco is getting so much attention. It deflects for all her misdeads. I wish some of the anti rudy crew would use the same venom on the rats.
Rudy has moral problems, but I would let him find Osama and redeem himself.
The name Giuliani is not the only one that fits your description. I will be glad to see one more liberal bite the dust though.
I’m really curious to see how Rudy’s bet it all on Florida strategy plays out. I don’t think he’s in this race much longer.
The NYT’s venom was in clear evidence on their opinion page today. This article just fills in the gaps. The only people that hate Giuliani more than the NYT and the MSM can be found on FR.
"Rudys campaign is in meltdown. Amazing how much voters bring up his tawdry personal life."
And, it is amazing to me how a news source can continue to bad-mouth everyone but Bill and Hill. What about THEIR tawdry personal life, NYT? (The dirt is so much deeper, there!)
Rudy needs to switch to the Rat party. He’d fit right in.
LOL! I think I’ve finally found a bumper sticker that I’d be willing to display.
Remember when all the rudybots flooded FR with support saying he is the only one who can beat the beast.Most of us here said that conservatives wont support him and it sure seems that we are right about that.
