Skip to comments.Giuliani Knocks Romney, Praises Gingrich
Posted on 01/28/2012 8:35:27 PM PST by KansasGirl
Speaking on MSNBCs "Morning Joe," former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani praised Newt Gingrich and criticised Mitt Romney as a flip-floppoer.
Ive never seen a guy change his positions on so many things, so fast, on a dime, on everything, Giuliani said about the former Massachusetts governor. Pro-choice, pro-life. And pro-choice because somebody, a close friend, died, and he became pro-choice because this woman died of an abortion. Then he figures out there are embryos and he changes.
Then he was pro-gun control, Giuliani opined. Fine. Then he becomes a lifetime member of the NRA. Then he was pro-cap-and-trade. Now hes against cap-and-trade. He was pro-mandate for the whole country, then he becomes anti-mandate and he takes that page out of his book and republishes the book. I could go on and on.

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.
rode in on Newt's coat tails in '94A champion looking for a cause
chummed with Spector
and through a failed Green Party coup
got his A$$ kicked in 2006 by some 700,000 votes
even with funny money from Highmark?
lacks the wisdom to get out of the race
and is beginning to give me the red A$$
" he (Rudy) has proven his mettle, when leadership was required in one of our nations 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:
The quotes match exactly.
Naw, this primary contest is more like an Ali-Janeane Garafalo fight.
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.
Wow! That needs to go viral!
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.
Lot of NYers in Florida. Hope they hear about this.
Have at it...just don’t give me attribution!
Rudy took on the mob while he was a prosecutor in NYC. He knows a crook when he sees one.
Well, I never liked Rudy’s positions, but I always appreciated his integrity, and non-flip floppery!
Where can I get these pics??
They are right in front of you!
...right click...save picture...
...or right click...properties...copy link...easy as pie!
Tinypic.com is an easy place to host pics also! (they don’t last very long there tho...)
Brilliantly put and spot on!
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.
And he sees them one way one day, and the other way the next day.
Some did. Most likely the same ones who walk on water while reciting "Newt has baggage!" mantra, and now yell, "Go Newt!"
Put him up for President and see if we have changed our view or not.
If you want to make that case then go ahead.
Missed everything. Logged onto FR and what great news all over the place! (For a change.)
Newt might pull this off yet! Anyone check to see if sludge had any of this up?
WOW! I wasn’t for him when he was running for President, but I’ve always thought of him to be forthright.
He’s bucking the big E.
I have to give him kudos, and high fives.
Bump! Outstanding graphics!
Liking him was, and still is, cool. Just, not as our President. He was, and still is, America’s Mayor.
Attorney General? Slam dunk!
I also like Rudy. Sure, he isn’t as conservative on the social issues as I’d like, but, I darn sure love listening to him when he speaks. He’s inspiring.
And I was never so disappointed in Drudge.....a headline for every attack on Newt, but a downplay on his great endorsement by Cain.....despicable Matt.....
Maybe hell has frozen over...check out the new rap song for Newt..the Newt Hoot..lol ..rappers for Newt? Rudy for Newt? http://www.cnn.com/video/?/video/politics/2012/01/29/exp-gingrich-rap.cnn#/video/politics/2012/01/29/exp-gingrich-rap.cnn
I read the headline and did a double take. Really?? Hard to take in.
Good stuff! LOL!
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.
More good news today! And I want a set of those Romney cards (as per post #47)! They are brilliant.
Brilliant! These need to go viral. I wish there were a way to make them available as a collector’s card set. Too cool!
Yep. A lot of people left because of it. Just like they hated Perry and Newt at the beginning of this race. Go figure.
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!
This is the interview:
WOW! I am going to have to reassess my opinion of him. I was certain he was a card carrying member of the RINO Elite.
Gingrich, Giuliani, Perry, Cain, Palin, Thompson, Brownback, Jindal .......
There are more governors out there who should be locating their spines and standing on the line with Gingrich.
Bang for later read ................................ FRegards
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.
