Just what we need, a 70 year old “republican” who believes in sodomite “marriage” and abortion on demand. The man has always been a liberal and working for Faux News does not change a thing.

Maybe he can get Cristie to appoint him to the Senate seat soon to be vacated by Bob Menendez.

“Moderate” republicans are as bad if not worse than the democrats.

They spend all their time trying to moderate the already comatose republicans while the democrats happily goose step their way into full on socialism.

If these moderates really wanted to do some good for America, they would run as democrats and try to moderate the party that actually needs it.

as he described himself, he is saying that a moderate republican is in reality just a cheap liberal.

Geraldo is insane. It will take about 10 minutes to uncover his background.

Yes, we all know about Bob Menendez, but I think that even NJ residents aren't down with what Geraldo has done in his life.

Scuzzy doesn't even begin to describe this guy's past.

Republican? Hah!

Um, er well, perhaps.

"Republican" is unfortunately associated with scumminess.

He might be a shoo-in in NJ.

“There can be a new vitalization of the Republican party.”

Doubtful, but certainly not with thew likes of this scum.

ANY republican GOP politician that backs or in ANYWAY helps this jerk , should be run out of town.

NO MORE DAMN RINOs!!!

“Geraldo Rivera declares himself a ‘moderate Republican’ as he eyes U.S. Senate run”

Maybe he meant ‘modern Republican’.

As an aside, where are all of the moderate Democrats? Maybe there aren’t any.

They morphed into Republicans for the most part and the remainder just faded away. Zell Miller was probably one of the last, though I believe he was a Conservative Democrat.

Let’s see if I have this straight. He’s a moderate Republican. Ergo, he is in favor of Obamacare, gay marriage, open borders, unlimited government, much higher taxes, more social spending, the elimination of the Defense Department, the repeal of the Second Amendment, thinks compromise means Pelosi is a right wing loon and thinks every live birth represents a failure of the first order.

Slapping that 'republican' tag onto Bloomberg helped make him mayor of NYC.

But I never voted for Bloomberg, and I sure as hell won't vote for Geraldo Rivera.

Rivera's probably trying to make sure that Booker gets the seat.

Heh, Good one Herraaallldo.

Well, maybe he is a Moderate Republican... since it seems these days that moderate republicans are socialists that don’t quite worship Marx, Lenin and Mao, but kinda like Castro and Chavez.

That think that the Constitution was OK for its time, but kinda outdated for the last 50 years....

That think if the USA were just a little more generous giving money and praise to its enemies, and open its borders to all comers that it wouldn’t be such a mean country.

A “moderate” Republican? We already have too many of them.

Not much better than a run-of-the-mill democrat.

“I endorsed the economic platform of Romney/Ryan in 2012 because Democrats were denying the deficit and decrying necessary changes in federal entitlements. Unfettered, theirs is a recipe for generational catastrophe. To pretend the government can just print money is untenable and irresponsible.

“But I voted for Obama/Biden because the fiscal threat posed by the Democrats seemed less immediate then the GOP’s intrusion into the private space of abortion, as well as Republicans’ opposition to both the inevitability of immigration reform and the rights of gay people to get married. Those things I believe, so how am I a Republican?”

And since the Republican party has zero requirements for party membership or candidates Jerry Rivers, Michael Bloomberg or even Martin Sheen could call themselves Republicans and run for office with the full backing of the GOP elites.

Heck they don’t even require loyalty as we saw with the Lisa Murkowski debacle.

“But I really do believe, as a moderate Republican, there is a point of view that is unrepresented in states like New Jersey. There can be a new vitalization of the Republican party.”

“vitalization”- a nice euphemism for prancing to the left. If that is what it takes to make the Republicans ‘vital’, then the GOP isn’t worth saving or taking over.
