Rudy will peel off voters from Romney, not Palin, so go get em Rudy.

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.

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.

Giuliani says that running against Palin would position him as a “moderate Republican” in contrast to Palin’s views

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.

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

he’ll be much more likely to run if Sarah Palin decides to as well.

LOL!! They decide what to do with their life on what Sarah will do! No surprise here because everyone knows.......

SARAH is a born leader!

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.

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.

He’d be skunked in Iowa by Huckabee and/or Palin, and South Carolina will be huge Palin if all things stay as they are. He COULD win New Hampshire, although Romney will poll strong there....

Rudy is a Palinista.

He will only run if she does to split the ‘moderate’ vote away from Romney, Daniels and Pawlenty.

Divided they fall. This helps conservative candidates.

You guys need to figure out how politics works. The one with the most votes wins, and if you can get your opponents votes diluted among several candidates, you can win with a smaller plurality.

He will take away enough votes from Romney in NH to allow Governor Palin to win.

He is a stalking horse for Sarah.

This is good news!

Well, don’t expect the RNC or establishment to hear your message - it gets compensated to lose as far as I’m concerned.

The work should be done today to avoid the necessity of that decision.

Rudy might find a home somewhere in a Palin administration, who knows?
