Skip to comments.Rudy gearing up for DC run (Giuliani in 2012?)
Posted on 01/07/2011 8:00:10 AM PST by Behind Liberal Lines
Confident that he'd have a chance to win, Rudy Giuliani is rounding up his top political advisers for a possible 2012 presidential run.
Sources say the tough-talking former mayor "thinks the Republican race will be populated with far-right candidates like Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, and there's opportunity for a moderate candidate with a background in national security."
Giuliani has even scheduled a trip to New Hampshire for next month to meet with constituents in the state that failed him in January 2008, when he placed fourth in the Republican presidential primary.
The problem is that even Rudy loyalists think it's a bad idea. "They think this is crazy," a source said. "They realize how long the odds are, but they are standing by."

Rudy, Rudy, Rudy. Get a grip and start looking for another Mayor gig. Bell CA might be able to use you. You will NEVER be POTUS.
Rudy was a fool not to run for NYS attorney general this time around. He would have won and been perfectly poised to either move into the Governor’s seat or a spot heading the Justice Department in 2013.
Oh man, do we have to drag out those Rooty in a dress pics again?
Another run for Thompson too?
McCain might as well try again.
Even GHWB has one more term, white hair and aged.
The GOP can still find a old guy to fill the O of the GOP.
He’s almost a purty as Palin. LOL
Hannity will start shilling for him again. We dont need 2008 losers like Romney, Huckaphony and Guiliani. He has NO chance of winning the presidency. Just sit back and count your money, Rudy, and let a real conservative step up to the plate.
I'd love a serious run by Fred. He's the real deal when it comes to conservatism, he's got gravitas and he's articulate.
Unfortunately it's clear the guy doesn't really want to work for the job.
(Though if my wife looked like his I'd probably want to stay home more too). :-)
He couldn’t beat them for the nomination in 2008. What’s changed?
Personally, I think that anyone who ran and lost in 2008 should just hang it up. We need fresh blood, not retreads.
What a field! Rudy, The Huckster, Gingrich, Mitt...
Haven’t seen Thompson in ages. Wonder what he’s up to?!?
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
LonePalm, le Républicain du verre cassé (The Broken Glass Republican)
From HIS perspective, Romney IS “far right”.....
Fred was a big McCain supporter in 2000. He talks the talk but he is pimping reverse mortgages on tv ads now. Pathetic. Forget Fred.
Good for him. I can support him for DC. What office, Mayor? Comptroller?
No higher office than that though...
