Will that be his official “uniform” for Commander of the new DADT military? LOL
Somebody already said this down the thread and I’m too lazy to look. The MSM is turning to Rudy because they know that Mittens, Huckleberry, et al don’t have a chance against Palin. They are going to be running all kinds of folks out that THEY say are presidential material.
Egads! You’re back! I haven’t seen you in years - but, of course, your Rudy fixation brings you back to life, lol!
I supported Rudy in 2008. He lost. I think his time has passed.
Go, Sarah, go!
If you think Rudy is A-OK, you're probably on the wrong website, quite frankly.
The guy we want is Chris Christie.
What a ridiculous notion. Does this idiot really think that GOP primary voters have changed so much that they would embrace a “Republican” who favors partial-birth abortion, gun control and special rights for gays?
And by that I mean not just the overt terrorists (plenty of GOP'ers including Palin and Newt have done that) but their enablers in Saudi, Kuwait, and Pakistan.
I honestly don't think you would ever see him holding hands with, much less bowing to, the Saudi scum.
There needs to be a foreign policy role for someone who has that stand. But I agree, not POTUS.
I agree...couldn’t he run for mayor again after sitting out a couple of terms?
He did well for the city and he seems happy there.
I disagree. Hannity has consistently railed against oBama's policies from the beginning better than most broadcasters.
If Rudy were to seriously run as a pro-Life candidate, he'd might have chance. However, I prefer Palin/West.
People that don’t like him had better realize Independent voters and a large portion of tea partiers are LESS social conservative. Just sayin...
Realistically I don’t think anyone who would do as I want... disavow the U.N. immediately and downsize government and do away with political correctness would have a chance, quite sadly. The more moderate voters want fiscal conservatism.
I wish West would run.
He’s a long shot, not a dark horse...I prefer him over the GOP moderates (Romney, Pawlenty,et al) and Huckleberry...the author makes an interesting point about the lessening of influence of social conservatives. On a national level, there is not much talk about abortion and the loss on DADT has set the stage for gay marriage at a national level that will be difficult to stop by 2012. If that’s the case, economy voters may outvote the social ones...regardless, I still see the GOP odds at Palin 50%, Romney 50% at this point in time...magritte
I like West
Are you claiming that every long-time poster to this site must agree with you on everything?
Your screen name is that of my favorite artist. Your tagline is from my favorite author. Well done!!
LTC West is brilliant and unafraid of political correctness.
I pray, LTC West will be the dark horse and I dare the media to bash him.
Now read this thread, fwiw: Will FR embrace socialism to make way for Rudy Giuliani as a Republican presidential candidate?
