    ... His history with the gay community is a long one. He donated to charities focused on the AIDS crisis in the late 1980s and early ’90s. In 2000, when he briefly considered running for president, he gave an interview to The Advocate, a gay magazine, in which he supported amending the 1964 Civil Rights Act to “include a ban of discrimination based on sexual orientation.” “It would be simple. It would be straightforward,” Mr. Trump said in the interview, adding, “It’s only fair.” Sixteen years later, gay rights advocates are still trying to persuade Congress to pass a similar...

    Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani will be voting for a fellow New Yorker: Donald Trump. "I support Trump. I'm gonna vote for Trump," Giuliani told The New York Post Thursday about his voting intentions in the state's April 19 Republican primary. --------- It was reported that Giuliani was to meet with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz Thursday, but according to Giuliani, that meeting happened months ago. Cruz's comments about "New York values" were a big factor for Giuliani.

    In an effort to attack Hillary Clinton on foreign policy tonight, Rudy Giuliani told Bill O’Reilly that “Hillary Clinton could be considered a founding member of ISIS.” He said that Clinton hasn’t shown leadership in the war on terror, saying she had her chance when she was Secretary of State, when she was “part of an administration that withdrew from Iraq.” O’Reilly pointed out Clinton couldn’t have forced President Obama to do anything short of resigning. Giuliani added, “Which is what a patriot does.” A little later, O’Reilly took a guess Giuliani’s getting ready to endorse Donald Trump. Giuliani didn’t...

    Former New York Mayor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, who hasn't yet endorsed a candidate, said if it came down to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump versus Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), he would vote for Trump. "If it came down to Trump or Cruz, there is no question I'd vote for Trump," Giuliani, who was mayor during the 9-11 terrorist attack, said. "As a party, we'd have a better chance of winning with him, and I think a lot of Republicans look at it that way." The statement comes as The Washington Post is reporting that the GOP establishment...

Calling Trump an “unbiased and unprejudiced man” on Monday, Giuliani said that though Trump could have worded his remarks better, he has “gotten onto an issue that’s important.” Giuliani referenced the illegal immigrant–who had been deported five times–who murdered 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco over the weekend as an example of the country’s lax border security

"I find it very disappointing that you're not discussing the fact that 93 percent of blacks in America are killed by other blacks. We're talking about the exception here," Giuliani said on NBC's "Meet The Press," referring to the Aug. 9 killing of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager, in Ferguson by Darren...

    The question of Barack Obama’s eligibility to occupy the Oval Office under the Constitution’s “natural born” citizen requirement is once again being appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, which has refused to hear a number of previous cases. Judges have ruled Obama’s eligibility is a political question that is not for the courts to decide. They have argued the plaintiffs didn’t have “standing,” the requirement that they have sustained or will sustain direct injury or harm that can be redressed by a court. Now, however, a plaintiff has surfaced who claims he has suffered a specific and individual injury –...

    In January, Paul will retire from Congress. A decade ago, this would have signaled the effective end of antiwar conservatism as a meaningful political force. Today Paul leaves behind an entire wing of the Republican Party sympathetic to his views, some of whom identify explicitly as “Ron Paul Republicans,” while some do not. Justin Amash, a freshman Republican from Michigan, has already emerged as a Paul successor of sorts in the House. Like Paul, he is a constitutional stickler, refusing to vote for bills that contradict his oath to uphold the Constitution. He has pressed for an end to Bush’s...

    So what if Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich decide not to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 or their campaigns falter in the early going? Who will the GOP turn to? That’s what Rasmussen Reports asked Likely Republican Primary voters in a new national telephone survey. Not surprisingly the best known of the eight other prominent Republicans mentioned came out on top. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani emerges as the clear leader among this group with 29% support. Tim Pawlenty, who recently stepped down as governor of Minnesota, comes in second with...

    Rudy Giuliani has already announced that he’s “considering” a run for president in 2012, but, as he tells Piers Morgan in Monday’s episode of Piers Morgan Tonight, he’ll be much more likely to run if Sarah Palin decides to as well. Giuliani says that running against Palin would position him as a “moderate Republican” in contrast to Palin’s views. Morgan called him the “acceptable face of the Republican party,” to which America’s Mayor replied, “Well. I don’t know if I’m acceptable. The way I got elected as mayor of New York City was not being acceptable. My slogan was ‘You...

    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 Giuliani says he might again for president. The former New York City mayor says he's more likely to run if former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin runs. Giuliani made the comment during an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." When Giuliani ran in 2008, Texas Gov. Rick Perry enthusiasticly campaigned for him in Iowa and Florida. They traveled the Sunshine State aboard a campaign bus, where Perry made speeches vouching for Rudy's Republican values. But Republicans didn't buy it. Voters were turned off by former New York mayor's support of gun control , gay marriage and abortion rights.

[...] He also addressed Palin's use of the word "blood libel" that she used in...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said he is "absolutely" open to a run for president in 2012. Giuliani, the mayor of New York during the 9/11 terrorist attacks who ran for president in 2008, hinted more strongly that he might seek the Republican nomination to challenge President Obama's reelection. "I will take a look at 2012. It's really a question of, can I play a useful role? Would I have a chance of getting the nomination? Those are things that I'll have to evaluate as the year goes along," Giuliani said Thursday night on CNBC's "The Kudlow...

    "Confident that he'd have a chance to win, Rudy Giuliani is rounding up his top political advisers for a possible 2012 presidential run, sources tell Page Six. Sources say the tough-talking former mayor "thinks the Republican race will be populated with far-right candidates like Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, and there's opportunity for a moderate candidate with a background in national security." Giuliani has even scheduled a trip to New Hampshire for next month to meet with constituents in the state that failed him in January 2008, when he placed fourth in the Republican presidential primary.

  • Is Rudy Giuliani a 2012 dark horse?

    As a 2008 primary front-runner, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani tanked. But as a 2012 dark horse, he could do surprisingly well. It’s not because Giuliani has shifted; it’s because the Republican Party has. The 2010 election was less about social conservatism than it was fiscal conservatism, and that aligns with Giuliani’s socially moderate and fiscally conservative ideology. There is another promising wind of change blowing Giuliani’s way, one that’s less ideological. This isn’t the era of kinder, gentler politicians. This is the age of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and...
