    Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, criticized for giving people too much space to protest during the recent rioting in her city, has an additional job: On Monday, she was sworn in as president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, a group that influences national urban policy. “She’s been elected by her peers,” said USCM CEO and Executive Director Tom Cochran. “It’s one of the highest honors you can have as a mayor. For one year, she’s America’s mayor. It’s a very powerful position.” As conference president, Rawlings-Blake, a Democrat, will set the organization’s agenda, appoint committee and task force chairs and...

    Rudy Giuliani is from a different era. He is no longer ‘America’s mayor.’ Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is Former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani appeared on Fox News earlier this week to talk about what else, Baltimore. Giuliani, like many others who are not Obamabots, took exception to the way the authorities in that city handled the protests when they turned into full blown riots. Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake made it quite clear she requested the rioters to be given “space to destroy” even though she later denied she said the plain words everyone heard. Instead of saying she misspoke, the mayor blamed...

    Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, speaking for his fellow Republicans ten years after the September 11th attacks, denounced President Barack Obama's handling of national security on Saturday. Giuliani, giving the party's weekly address, notably blasted Obama's decision to withdraw some 33,000 US troops from Afghanistan by September 2012 and bring home all combat forces by 2014. "Perhaps the most dangerous impulse we've developed since September 11 is impatience demonstrated by the calls to put our armed forces on timetables," said the former mayor, hailed for his take-charge response to the attacks. ...And he blasted "the inappropriate decision-making and...

    Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he is “more likely” to run for president in 2012 if former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin makes a bid, according to snippets from an interview to air on CNN Monday night released on Twitter. “The more Republicans in which I can show a contrast, probably the better chance, the better chance that I have,” Mr. Giuliani is quoted as saying on CNN host Piers Morgan’s Twitter account. “My one chance, if I have a chance, is that I’m considered a moderate.” The implication being that Ms. Palin, a tea party favorite, is not...
  • Rudy: GZ Mosque is a 'desecration,' 'decent Muslims' won't be offended

    This went way under the radar more than three weeks ago, but Rudy Giuliani made what, as best as I can tell, were his first public comments about the planned mosque near ground zero on the Jeff Katz show on radio...He takes a very hard line, including saying that "decent Muslims" will not be offended by the opposition because they want peace as much as others do. I had been struck by how nonvisible Giuliani, who is generally known as the face of Ground Zero, had been on this issue. (A nexis search under his name, Ground Zero and mosque...
  • Rudy The Liberal-Slayer Wants Paterson's Job

    Rudy Giuliani has come out against feckless New York governor David Paterson's proposal to make gay marriage legal in New York. It probably wouldn't have surprised anyone if Rudy had been in favor of it, given that his positions on social issues are painted a liberal shade of blue. But Rudy supports civil unions, not gay marriage. The interesting thing is not his position, it is that he has, in the words of the New York Post, "declared war" on gay marriage. Which can only mean one thing. The mayor wants to be governor.

    A supporter of Rudy Giuliani's is throwing a party that aims to raise $9.11 per person for the Republican's presidential campaign. Abraham Sofaer is having a fundraiser at his Palo Alto, Calif., home on Wednesday, when Giuliani backers across the country are participating in the campaign's national house party night. But Sofaer said he had nothing to do with the "$9.11 for Rudy" theme. "There are some young people who came up with it," Sofaer said when reached by telephone Monday evening. He referred other questions to Giuliani's campaign. "I'm just providing support for him. He's an old friend of...
  • Rudy Giuliani Could be Just the Ticket for Social Conservatives

    Can America's mayor win support from enough social conservatives to win the Republican nomination? Maybe not, but social conservatives should think long and hard before they decide to pass on Giuliani. This may be difficult advice to credit. Giuliani is thoroughly alienated from the dominant concerns of the social right. Mayor Giuliani delivered what they needed most. He reclaimed New York City from the toxic leftism of his predecessors but in the process identified himself with the moral elements of their leftism. social conservatives are concerned about social rot and Giuliani is one of the very few executives in the...
  • Is Giuliani Honestly Conservative/Pro-Life Enough? (Opinion)

    A voter can discern honesty by examining what a candidate believes is a "winning issue." Rudy Giuliani has flipped on abortion several times. Does that mean he is too liberal or too dishonest for a conservative to vote for him? In 1989, he informed the Conservative Party of New York that he was pro-life. That stance was reported in local newspapers, and he lost to Mayor David Dinkins. In 1993, he dropped the pro-life plank, asserting that he believed women had the right to abortion. The decision was nakedly political, and the New York Times published the paper trail to...
