    America's mayor calls it as he sees it. That just about sums it up. Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani tells Neil Cavuto that moving KSM and his other 9-11 buddies to New York for trial is an unnecessary risk and for that reason he does not hold back. Please make special note of Rudy’s facial expression at the beginning of the interview.

    WATERTOWN, N.Y. — On a Sunday evening conference call with conservative bloggers — where he was joined by former Dede Scozzafava campaign manager Matt Burns — Rob Ryan, spokesman for NY-23 Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman, said that former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani had recorded a robocall for the campaign.

"We've spoken on and off this year about it and my impression was always that he was not intent on running, but after our [recent] breakfast ...

If I thought I could make a real difference," he told a Crain's NY breakfast, "I would do it." Two terms as mayor and more than three decades in the public eye, and he still doesn't know whether he can make a difference? The election is 15 months away. But Giuliani other candidates biding their time waiting for Rudy to make up his mind would need every bit of that time to run an effective race........

    Rudy Giuliani went on the attack against Gov. Paterson and his fellow Democratic leaders Monday night, saying they should be "ashamed" about New York's failing economy. "The governor, all the statewide officials, the legislators should be ashamed anytime we're in a very low position, in an anti-competitive position," Giuliani told Republicans at the Albany GOP's annual Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner. "Because we don't have to be if we follow the right policies." Giuliani, who continues to be coy about whether he will challenge Paterson in 2010, touted his record as a fiscally responsible tax cutter and said that what New York...

Although many New York Republicans are pushing the former New York City mayor to consider a run for governor in 2010, Giuliani hasn't committed. On Monday he was in Albany for the annual Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner. Last week he was the big draw at the state Republican committee's annual dinner. Both have been must-attend events for past GOP governors. A Siena College poll on Monday finds Giuliani would beat Paterson 56% to...

    WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- New York City on Monday failed before the U.S. Supreme Court to revive a lawsuit it filed against the gun industry. New York sued several gun manufacturers in 2000, arguing the companies violated a state public nuisance law with their marketing and distribution of the firearms products they sell. Among the companies sued were Beretta USA Corp., Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. (SWHC), Colt's Manufacturing Co. LLC, Sturm, Ruger & Co. (RGR) and Glock GmbH. A federal law enacted in 2005 sought to shield gun makers from lawsuits like the one New York filed, prompting a federal...

    The latest Marist Poll shows that just 26% of New York voters think Gov. David Paterson is doing either an excellent or good job in office. That's a drop of 20 points since the end of January. In fact, Paterson's approval rating is the lowest any New York governor has received in the poll's nearly thirty year history. In a general election match up, Rudy Giuliani (R) crushes Paterson 53% to 38%. The two were in a statistical tie two months ago. In a Democratic primary, Andrew Cuomo also crushes Paterson 62% to 26%. However, Cuomo would defeat Giuliani 56%...

A poll out yesterday gave him a record-high approval rating -and showed he'd beat former Mayor Rudy Giuliani in a gubernatorial election.

Neither Palin nor ex-NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, who made similar comments, attacked the honorable American tradition of volunteerism, but the media reacted as if their comments were somehow un-American.

    NEW YORK TIMES ^ | December 14, 2007 | ERIC LIPTON, New York Times
    Rudy Giuliani’s consulting firm was hired in 2002 to help a Florida company build its business under a contract that called for Mr. Giuliani’s firm to be paid in part for lining up work with the federal government and other clients, company records show. Federal law prohibits payment of a commission in return for a federal contract... The deal between the firm and the contractor, Seisint of Boca Raton, was signed with the expectation that Mr. Giuliani’s high profile and connections would help the start-up company obtain federal contracts as well as nongovernment work, said Michael Brauser, co-founder of Seisint...

    Once again the bells tolled. Once again the victims' names were read. Once again New York and the nation paused to mark the Sept. 11 terror attacks. And for what's likely to be the last time, once again there was a pilgrimage of pain into The Pit. Seven years after that terrible morning when terrorists in hijacked airliners struck, construction has overtaken the sacred site where the twin towers once stood. So it was with especially heavy steps that the grieving relatives, cops and firefighters ventured down Thursday into the bowels of Ground Zero, to leave white, pink and red...

    Almost exactly one year ago during a Republican presidential debate in Durham, New Hampshire, I said that if I weren't running for President myself, I'd be supporting John McCain. Well, I'm not, and I do. Every four years, we are told that this Presidential election is the most important election of our lifetime. This year - 2008 - IS the most important.This has already been historic. It is the longest Presidential campaign in history. And it sometimes felt even longer.The American people realize this election represents a turning point. In two months they will decide the future direction of our...

    I think it was during the Rudi speech, after he said something like, "Obama...Experience...Zero...nada.." that the crowd started chanting Zero, Zero, Zero. That crowd came up with an excellent theme/symbol/slogan/etc. Zero. There should be lots of ideas on the Zero theme.

    Obama is still kvetching about Mayor Giuliani's and Gov. Palin's jabs at community organizers. Ablaze with indignation, they demand a backlash from insulted community organizers coast to coast. How many can there be? This might be a news flash Dems, but 98.3 percent of Americans have no clue what a "community organizer" is, what they do or who pays them. Before Obama arrived on the scene, the only community organizers I had heard of were the Al Sharpton types who bus in aggrieved screamers to shake down governments and corporations. Of course, the new leftist definition of "community organizer" includes...

    ABC News' Jennifer Duck Reports: In what could be dubbed a warm up act before his big address to the Republican National Convention tonight, Rudy Giuliani defended Gov Sarah Palin and sharply attacked democratic rivals Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Joe Biden at the New York delegate luncheon in Minneapolis. The former New York Mayor said the "unrelenting attacks" on republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin are "in the gutter" and "below the standards of journalism." "I've never seen attacks like that, even in all my time in New York City," Giuliani said. Giuliani touted Palin's experience as Mayor and...

    When Rudy Giuliani addresses the Republican National Convention as expected Wednesday night, it might be his last big moment in the political spotlight. It doesn't have to be. With New York State's gubernatorial race coming up in 2010, Giuliani has a rare chance to make up for his mistakes since leaving office. Instead of just making money, Giuliani can make a difference by helping to revive the GOP as a truly national party. More importantly, he has the chops and the experience to reform Albany and deliver New Yorkers the smarter, more responsive, more effective government they deserve. Before we...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Republicans revamped their convention plans for a second day, dropping former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani as keynote speaker Tuesday night while trying to determine President Bush's role in the political pageantry celebrating John McCain's candidacy for president. In Giuliani's speaking slot were former Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee, one of McCain's rivals for the Republican nomination, and independent Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, the Democrats' vice presidential candidate in 2000 and now a McCain supporter. Republicans say the two will talk about McCain's life and their friendship with him. Whether Bush will address delegates...

    DENVER, (AP) -- Surrogates for John McCain fired away Wednesday from the outskirts of the Democratic convention, with Rudy Giuliani going live on the Fox News Channel to eclipse convention keynote speaker Mark Warner. "If Democrats are telling us he's not ready to be president of the United States, we better listen," former presidential candidate Giuliani said of Barack Obama. Giuliani, along with another vanquished McCain foe, Mitt Romney, flew to Denver and made a flurry of media rounds in the intensifying GOP effort to counter the Democratic convention narrative. At the same time, three GOP members of Congress —...
