Is it time for Rue Dee Julie Annie to give it up and go home?
September 7, 2007 | nwrep

Posted on 09/07/2007 10:19:07 AM PDT by nwrep


Folks, isn't it time for the drag queen to exit the Republican presidential race and go back to her party scene in Manhattan?

I ask this with great seriousness.

Rue-Dee is simply delaying the inevitable.

A liberal in Liberace's clothing is not going to win the hearts and minds of religious conservatives.

A man formerly endorsed by Chuck Schumer and praised for his gun grabbing skills cannot be seriously expected to be embraced by the Republican base.

A man who hid behind his wife's skirt when challenged by Hillary Clinton for the Senate race in New York cannot be expected to take on Hillary in the heartland.

Folks, let us clear the race of riff-raff like Julie Annie and BuckLame and Con Small, and let the serious candidates (Romney, Hunter, Thompson) fight it out.

Yours truly,

GOP

Rudy sure fits a democrat profile!

IT is for the murder of unborn babies!
IT is a big gun control nut!
IT covered for the invaders in ITS city!
IT surrounded ITself with thugs!

Why does IT have an R by ITS name instead of a D?

Also hope to hear from the supporters of Con Small, that is, if their parents have left their computers unlocked.

Rue Dee Julie Annie

How original to spell his name that way! And what an incisive comment on his policies!

I don't know why anyone bothers posting articles when we have brilliant vanities like this to analyze!

Can't think of a politician who would quite while they are leading in the national polls.

McCain ain't leaving as long as he polls over 10%.

Somebody needs to knock Rudi down into the 5% range before he will go.

Right now, Fred Thompson has my vote.

However, Gulliani should continue on until he is beaten fair and square (which I think will happen). Guilliani was a great major of New York, but I would not want him as President. He’s wrong on abortion, gun control, and immigration. I very much agree with his stance on foreign policy and anti-terrorism, but that is not enough to be president given the competition. We can do better, and will do so with Fred.

PS The name calling is juvenille, silly and not worthy of Free Republic, imho.

Rudy will be below 10% when likely Reps voter are surveyed by the end of September. Except of course East of the Mississippi.

(Re: Headline) I’m not going to vote for Rudy with MY primary ballot, but you make yourself look childish — like a 2d grader — when you twist around someone’s name and apparently believe it’s funny or that it actually makes Giuliani look bad.

What makes Giuliani unacceptable are his stances on such things as amnesty, Gore-bal warming, abortion, etc.

I don't think the front runner is going to drop out just yet. And yes, Fred may jump way up and make it a moot question.

He’s wrong on abortion, gun control, and immigration. I very much agree with his stance on foreign policy and anti-terrorism, but that is not enough to be president given the competition.

Actually, antiterrorism is pretty much all I'm looking for. I like Fred too, so there's that.

Abortion doesn't matter. It's a non-issue from the point of view of the oval office.

Gun control isn't likely to be on the table. I don't think Rudy would enact any form of gun control if he were Potus.

Immigration is a dead issue too. We've made it clear to congress and the President that we don't want anything done. So be it.

Exactly. Posts like this make FR look as if it has a fifth-grade mentality. It's fine to criticize a candidate with intelligent arguments, but stupid name-calling is best left to the DU'ers.

I can think of a lot worse, much, much worse, who may be elected President. I just thank God he was the Mayor of New York when 9/11 transpired. Living on Long Island and knowing a person who died in the Towers, seeing my fellow Islanders cry at funerals for family lost, well, Rudy showed us tremendous character and leadership. While he was only Mayor of New York, those of us who live in the shadows of New York City, we took comfort and give him gratitude for his courage. He was a rock when we needed one. For that I will never show any disrespect for the man. I would not be disappointed if he was my President too.

I'm going to abide by the 11th Commandment. I don't like Rudy's political stances on many issues, nor his record on many issues. Starting with guns - which is where my analysis stops if my opinion and any candidate's aren't mostly in synch. I don't want him to get the nomination, nor do I think that he'll get it. I wouldn't mind, however, seeing him as Governor of NY, or as a NY Senator. Given the 3 people holding those offices now, he'd be a VAST improvement over any of them. Best of all, he's incredibly well known and generally well-liked in NYS, and he'd probably win in a cake-walk.

That, or Homeland Security in the Thompson Administration.

My thoughts too. He has proven his leadership through a trial by fire. How many others in the running can say the same?

Tossing Arafat out of Lincoln Center and going after that Brooklyn Museum with the elephant dung Madonna was enough to seal his leadership credentials with me. Fred better show me some real leadership and Reaganesque vision/public policy positions or my votes in 2008 (primary and general election) will be for Mr. Mayor. With no executive experience and disappointing fortitude as chairman of the Senate Campaign Finance Committee investigations, I remain skeptical about Fred but hope he rises to the occasion and helps me change my mind.

Why we are dignifying this lame "thread" with serious commentary may be a mistake, but I liked some of the responses I've seen here.

I agree. Mitt Romney would be a superior choice (great executive, lives family values) and Fred Thompson (conservative credentials) would be a superior choice.

Mitt, Fred, and Rudy are equally electable up against Hillary.

I remember when he stood at the podium of the press conference a few hours after the towers came down, still burning, still thinking maybe 10,000 may have died, hundred of fireman and policeman missing. The man looked into the camera....I thought to myself this is a guy who looks like the days events are about to overwhelm him and just crush him.....He took a step back, a breath, collected his thoughts, looked up and started talking. He stood tall, talked firm and with purpose....He was probably feeling inside what all of us where except for the fact he had millions of people in the Tri State asking him...what now? In an awful moment he took the reins and gave us what we needed to see and hear all the while knowing how enormous a wound and pain the City and all of us were feeling. For that moment, while I still felt like crap, a very dazed awful feeling, he told us we would make it through this and I believed him and appreciated his words and leadership. During one of the most awful days of my life, in his life, he knew what I needed to hear and see.

The guy has flaws. Geez, if I wrote all of mine down and handed the list to my wife she might scratch her head and wonder why she married me. That being said, you are measured as a whole person. Damn if he shines and leads when it counts. That is something you are born with. Like I said, I will never disrespect this man.

You forgot to mention the fact that he told the Saudi guy to keep his $10 Million, when he said we were partly to blame for the attacks.

How many modern day pols would do this?

Not many.

Yes, a good post. In addition, as far as immigration, few realize what the actual laws are. From Glen Beck's program:

GIULIANI: ...Glenn, being an illegal immigrant, the 400,000 were not prosecuted for crimes by the federal government, nor could they be. I was U.S. attorney in the southern district of New York. So believe me, I know this. In fact, when you throw an immigrant out of the country, it's not a criminal proceeding. It's a civil proceeding...

GIULIANI: ...My solution is close the border to illegal immigration.

GLENN: How do you do that?

GIULIANI: You do that by building a fence, a physical fence and a technological fence, and the technological fence is more important than the physical fence. The technological fence would alert you to illegals approaching the border well in advance so the border patrol can get there and stop them. You deploy the border patrol every 50 miles along the border. I've already outlined this on a map. I did this in detail about two weeks ago. And then you have the border patrol stop people from coming in, literally stop them from coming in. If you did that for a year or two, you would end it. You also have a tamperproof ID card that every person from a foreign country should have that comes into the United States. The goal has to be, yes, you're allowed to come to the United States but you have to identify yourself before we let you in, and we have to be sure you're a safe person. And then if you come in, you'll be in the computer base, you'll be able to work, you will have to pay your fair share, you'll have to pay taxes but we have to end it right at the border by having the resources to stop people from just walking into this country and not identifying themselves. Only the federal government can do this. If the federal government doesn't do this, there is no way that the local governments in this country can handle it other than in a practical way. If you make people that are just going to be here for the next 20 years, if you put them in a situation of danger and risk, you're going to have more crime in your communities..."

PS: There were 400,000 illegal immigrants in NYC when Rudy was Mayor. The Federal Government was deporting only 2500 illegals per year.
