Rudy's cocamamie campaign strategy (AKA "Kick Conservatives To The Curb") is historic as the worst presidential strategy ever wrought. Rooty fiercely competed in all the early primary/caucus states while publicly stating he wasn't going to b/c of the dreaded so/cons lurking in grassroots states. In the end, Rooty spent a whopping $60 million (much more than Huckabee's $7 mill) and Rooty got only one delegate for his time and trouble.

In Fla, he was banking on votes of liberal NYC transplants---Rooty campaigned there 61 days straight and came in a distant third. Seems the more voters saw and heard him, the less they wanted to vote for him.

Giulie's WIFE was a BIG reason he lost--even blase liberal New Yorkers RECOILED at the sight of her. Her first campaign speech started his troubles---at a fund-raiser she rambled on and on about "dating" Rooty (while onlookers winced b/c he was married at the time). Everytime she surfaced, voters were reminded the Mayor married an adulteress home-wrecker. Mayor Rudy paraded her around NYC even as he tried to dump his wife and kids out of Gracie Mansion to move the bimbo in.

During the campaign it was discovered Rudy was using city funds to subsidize his mistress and hiding the costs in obscure city agencies.........usually known as government fraud.

Uhhhh... I would say that's the first problem. Talk about the Republican't party losing touch with the common man...

Julie-Annie is the gift that keeps on taking. Guess what Julie — CONSERVATIVES.... we’re here, we’re what you fear, get used to it.

RINOs... you can’t wish us away. And we’ve got the best ideas for America. Wise up.

This story is a sure sign that America’s Mayor is running FROM office, not For office. It’s also indicative of just how moribund NY’s Republican Party is. NY desperately needs its own Bobby Jindal.

Rudy should have ran in 06 and spared the state Spitzer and Patterson.

I shudder just thinking about Rudy as our nominee.
