Excellent!

Besides the semi-endorsement of Newt from Rudy, be sure to check out post #47 for an awesome graphic to send to any Romney-tilting friends you may have.

Are we talking about the same Boy Scout who:
• rode in on Newt's coat tails in '94
• chummed with Spector
• and through a failed Green Party coup
• got his A$$ kicked in 2006 by some 700,000 votes
• even with funny money from Highmark?
• lacks the wisdom to get out of the race
• and is beginning to give me the red A$$
A champion looking for a cause…
"…he (Rudy) has proven his mettle, when leadership was required in one of our nation’s darkest hours, he manned up and provided it."
Amen to that one!

Newsmax favors Newt, and so do I. But what Newsmax doesn’t tell you is that the interview it’s talking about on 1/28 took place on 12/15 - 6 weeks ago:

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2011/12/15/Giuliani-slams-Romney/UPI-78531323992815/

The quotes match exactly.

Naw, this primary contest is more like an Ali-Janeane Garafalo fight.

Yeah! Somewhat.

He endorsed workfare. One Day I was driving and there was nothing but a little army cleaning the litter roadways around the Rockaways, Ny. It was the people who were able body working welfare. LOL! After that it was very clean roadways.

He also brought down the Welfare checks hand outs for illegitimate mothers. You see they could get checks without notifing who the real father was to the child. Well when he became mayor if the mother did not declare who the Father was they did not get a check.

Now when they did declare the cops would find the deadbeat dad. The dead beat dad would have to pay child care. Those checks were like 1.2 million(?) before Guiliani, after Rudy got on top of it 300,000(?) were issued only. He saved the city alot of money.

He also cleaned up The filth of Times Square.

Lancey, I always like the movie The Hustler better than The Cincinnati Kid.

That may be because Minnesota Fats was a real guy who claimed little Egypt in Illinois as his home which is somewhere that I have an affinity for.

But I agree with you, I have always liked Rudy.

He had street smarts.

Lancy Howard had street smarts as did Minnesota Fats.

Rudy was a prosecutor who had street smarts or he would not have taken down organized crime in NY-NJ.

Rudy was a Republican prosecutor who was street smart, he was no elitist Republican prosecutor such as Thomas Dewey or elistist corporate raider with a storied political name such as Willard Romney.

Now there is an endorsement I might not have expected.

He did telegraph this a couple of months ago.

I’m quite sure a simple search will show Rudy associated with terms like pro-abortion, baby killer, rino, ... No need to recreate history here to enjoy what Rudy said. Not stating that you said anything - just that he was much hated on FR.

The Mittiot! I look forward to the day he fades into Goredom.
...........................................................

Me too, I have never looked so forward to seeing someone lose. I had reserved that for Obama but there’s a new game in town: MITT.

I believe that Mitt would be worse for our country than Obama in the long run or at best a wash. Same ol’ same ol’.

Mitt is the death of conservatism. The death of the tea party, the death of the modest gains we have made since 2008.

3RD PARTY NOW...GUARANTEE MITT’S LOSS IN NOVEMBER.

Rudy helped all he could to get Christie elected.
As we all know, Christie is in the bag for Romney.
Rudy isn’t-—which just shows you how unpredictable these
things can be.
On the surface, Christie seems temperamentally way closer
to Gingrich than Romney, once again proving from another
perspective how unpredictable and nearly illogical these endorsements can be.

I remember Rudi most for how he handled 9/11 and cleaned up the city. Can’t hardly help but “Like” him in general. Same for Christy...I am livid he supports Romney but he’s the man for N.J. and getting the job done there.

I do not recall, in my lifetime, seeing more integrity than when Rudy refused that 10 million check from the Arab shiek right after 9/11. I will never forget that and I was never more proud of an American than I was in that moment. I’m in Illinois and I see Dick Durbin buddying up to the most radical Muslims. The money has dried up here because the Dems have killed business with their crap so now they cozy up to that Muslim money, selling our safety down the river to line their own pockets!!! I think of Rudy all the time, I think of that moment in history and I’m so very proud and thankful for Americans with integrity like that!

Rudy may be VP or in the cabinet.

That's a new thought for me. Rudy running for VP could take some of the rough edges off of Newt. By that, I mean the public perception of Gingrich as "The Newt Who Stole Christmas" that was created when he was reforming the budget in the '90's. Well ok, he actually does have some rough edges, LOL. I only support him because he is the only conservative in the race.

I like Rudy, too, as a person of conviction and a very strong Mayor. He may have been the only one in NYC who could have handled 911 as well as he did. Christie is good for NJ, and is a great fiscal conservative. However, his brand of “conservativism” would not sell well in the heartland.
