Posted on 01/21/2011 4:41:49 PM PST by pissant
Rudy Giuliani has already announced that hes considering a run for president in 2012, but, as he tells Piers Morgan in Mondays episode of Piers Morgan Tonight, hell 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 Palins views. Morgan called him the acceptable face of the Republican party, to which Americas Mayor replied, Well. I dont know if Im acceptable. The way I got elected as mayor of New York City was not being acceptable. My slogan was You cant do any worse.
He adds that hes 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.

Rudy will peel off voters from Romney, not Palin, so go get em Rudy.
Well, he really can’t do any worse than he did the last round.
I will not hold my nose in 2012 when I vote.
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.
I take it you favor Guiliani over Palin.
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.
Nope. I don’t want either.
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.
Want a laugh?
I’m not in a huff in the least. I’m enjoying the circus.
He’s a man isn’t he, so probably yes.
But ‘Flouncing’ is all he knows.
Please ... let's not start THAT argument again so soon.
>> “Well, a vote for Rudy is a vote for a second BO term” <<
That is precisely why Rudy would run!
What circus-like atmosphere there is regarding 2012 on FR is attributable to you, pissant.
