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.

Rudy has no chance b/c of his personal life in the past. Right or wrong, his divorces (and didn’t he serve one wife for divorce while she was being treated for cancer?) and personal life will be publicized and (arguably) blown out of proportion enough that he has no chance. Romney, too, has no chance because of his religion—I’m not saying I agree, just how it will be portrayed.

Ain't that the truth. My biggest fear is that the conservative vote will get split up and a RINO will take the nomination. Like McCain did.

"If we needed any more proof that Palin is the one and only answer to our situation ..."

There is absolutely no 'one and only' answer to the problems of this country, and that way of thinking is a problem in itself.

I would hope that his gun grabbing, pro-infanticide ways would be enough to be a non-starter. It is for me, and then some.

Ah - was wondering where his pronouncement came from.

A few are beginning to test the waters so to speak. Gingrich was supposedly meeting with some of his Georgia people. Now Rudy is making some noise. Just a few days ago Ron Paul said he wasn’t considering the Texas senate race but was more likely to make another presidential run. By tax date we may have a large field splashing around.

Not really. It’s the folks living on Fantasy Island who think Palin is a conservative.

Now I see why you call yourself a dumb blonde.

A non-illuminist candidate is exactly what this country is crying for.

Well, go ahead and cling to Palin as she continues to nosedive. That’s your business.

Yeah, my candidates are always big media favorites. Especially when they stand up against the amnesty crowd and the gay agenda. Unlike Palin.

LOL! Oh, your argument is so much more convincing when you add the personal attack, especially bringing a screenname into it. That’s all you got?

Rudy Giuliani has done Republicans a favor by telegraphing who the real conservative is among the probable boatload of Republican contenders for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Her name is Sarah Palin. That Rudy wants to run against her (if she declares) says volumes, so, thanks, Rudy.
