Rudy Giuliani: Iíll Be More Likely To Run In 2012 If Sarah Palin Does
Mediaite ^ | 1/21/11 | Alex Alvarez

Posted on 01/21/2011 4:41:49 PM PST by pissant

Rudy Giuliani has already announced that he’s “considering” a run for president in 2012, but, as he tells Piers Morgan in Monday’s episode of Piers Morgan Tonight, he’ll be much more likely to run if Sarah Palin decides to as well.

Giuliani says that running against Palin would position him as a “moderate Republican” in contrast to Palin’s views. Morgan called him the “acceptable face of the Republican party,” to which America’s Mayor replied, “Well. I don’t know if I’m acceptable. The way I got elected as mayor of New York City was not being acceptable. My slogan was ‘You can’t do any worse.””

He adds that he’s learned from his time campaigning in the 2008 primaries and, this time around, will focus his efforts on winning Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Obama positioned himself as a “moderate” communist by running against Hillary and was able to successfully portray himself as the “acceptable racebaiter” for the DemocRATS.

So Rudy threatens to become the spoiler, eh? Well, a vote for Rudy is a vote for a second BO term.

Rudy is firing up his base.

Just who is his base, you may ask?

That would be the handful of people tuning in to Piers Morgan.

What is this? I do not dislike Rudy but he chickened out in NY senate and gov races. Sounds like - if a real conservative runs then I will jump in to try to sabotage them.

Another Rudy purge would weed out a bunch of squishy, self-identified ‘conservatives’ from the forum.

If we needed any more proof that Palin is the one and only answer to our situation (and we don’t) this is it.

It’s a little early yet to be flouncing around in a huff, pissant. No one has declared.

I’m not in a huff in the least. I’m enjoying the circus.

He’s a man isn’t he, so probably yes.

What circus-like atmosphere there is regarding 2012 on FR is attributable to you, pissant.
