GREENLAND, NH (CBS) Rudy Giuliani is testing the waters to see if he wants to run for President, again.
Giuliani, who visited the Country View Restaurant in Greenland, NH Friday, says hes learned some lessons from the last lackluster campaign. Id spend a lot more time in New Hampshire.
He explains, We were so busy building a national campagin and raising 50 or 60 million dollars that we didnt give each of the primary states enough attention.
We were running a national campaign when we should have been doing is running a local campaign. Alot of candidates make that mistake, we made it, and then we paid for it. And it was fair.
What would it take for him to run again? I dont know, he responds. His thoughts are: A feeling you would make a difference, feeling you have a decent chance of winning, and thinking you were needed for the debate. Alot that arises from analyzing yourself and the field.
What does he think of the potential field? Its still too early, he says.
But he didnt pass at the chance to take aim at New Hampshire G.O.P. frontrunner Mitt Romney and his Massachusetts health care reform? I like Mitt very much, I think Mitt is a terrific guy.
I have a great deal of respect for him. I think that was a big mistake. Its clearly a mistake. It was a forerunner of Obama care. Same idea, the core thing was a mandate. A mandate to me was a big mistake. Giuliani goes on, To tell me I have to do something, and then tax me if I dont do it seems to me a violation of the constitution.

I LIKE Rudy...he was the best thing for NYC that came along in around 50 years....
....but he is NOT, repeat NOT presidential timber. His methods are fascist and anti-individual. NYC at the time, I suppose, needed a fascist....and seeing as how the dims had made NYC a cross between Marxism and Fascism already, it was no great shakes to have him clean the city in his own inimitable style.
He is not right for America....period. Let him run for either Putzhead Schumer's or Shrillarie's(now gillibrand's) seat in the Senate...he can only improve the senate in comparison to those two pear-shaped losers.....
I will not vote for Rudy for either president or NY governor...period...and I will do what I can against him in either of those endeavors.
