GOP big pushes Giuliani for vice prez (MEGA BARF ALERT)
The New York Post ^ | 2011-08-22 | Fredric U. Dicker

One of New York's best-known Republicans is calling on pres idential hopeful Rick Perry to choose Rudy Giuliani as his running mate for next year's election.

Former state GOP Chairman William Powers, a longtime Giuliani friend and a key player in his first mayoral election in 1993, told The Post that such a move by Perry could deliver key swing states like New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Ohio to the Republicans.

"He'd be the best No. 2 anybody in the world could pick," said Powers, who has a longstanding relationship with leading Texas Republicans like Karl Rove, former President George W. Bush's top political adviser.

"A Perry-Giuliani ticket would absolutely defeat the Obama-Biden ticket and would have a big impact in New Jersey, in Pennsylvania, in Ohio, in Rhode Island and Connecticut, all places where Rudy is absolutely admired," Powers said.

Just great...(I can see the argument now!) Forget all the Tea-Party stood for you must vote for them or else you want another 4 years of Obama. I don’t want to hear a word of compalint from the Perry supporters IF he becomes President and SELLS out on Immigration!

Giuliani should be head of Homeland Security, Darrell Issa as Attorney General, and Ron Paul as Chairman of the Fed.

Giuliani should be head of Homeland Security

So we can have an even bigger police state than we already have?

Thanks - but NO thanks!

An anti-Second Amendment liberal as head of Homeland Security? No thanks.

Bush’s re-election in 2004 was about security. 2012 will be about the economy. Hussein Obama has to run on his piss poor economic record in 2012. As long as we don’t run a pathetic candidate like Bob Dole or John “Captain Queeg” McCain, we have a good shot at winning in 2012. I agree: Giuliani is a joke and a complete non-starter.

I agree. However, all Obama has to run on is catching Osama. Guiliani offers nothing to the ticket. NY’ers will still overwhelmingly vote Democrat.

Now Rubio on the other hand.....

Giuliani is very kick-ass-and-take-names, and that is simply an indisputable fact. I would posit that that is a great quality in a Sec’y. of Defense. It could be because I don’t know as much about the Dep’t. of Defense as I should. For now, I think Giuliani would be a fabulous Sec. Def..
