  • Forget Hillary and Jeb, here's who Wall Street really wants to run for president

    Wall Street wants Michael Bloomberg to run for president, but the billionaire isn't budging. At the Yale CEO Summit this week, the talk was of "drafting Bloomberg" however possible. The former New York City mayor seems like the perfect solution for Wall Street's problems with the current field of presidential candidates. The Street sees him as a centrist technocrat who adeptly managed one of the most complex cities in the world. They think he understands the global business community. Rumblings about a Bloomberg run are especially strong at several bulge bracket banks, including Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Merrill once...
  • FLASHBACK Michelle Obama on why the First Family does not attend church

    Michelle Obama took time out from Monday’s Easter Egg Roll to talk about the first family’s holiday and why the Obamas don’t usually attend church. The first lady’s visit with “Live with Kelly and Michael” co-host Michael Strahan got off to an awkward start, when shejoined in the audience applause after she was introduced. “You don’t have to clap for yourself,” Strahan said, before asking about the first family’s Easter. The healthy eating proponent, who was pushing her “Let’s Move!” campaign at the egg roll, described what the family did after church on Easter. “We sat around really full because...
  • Of Course Barack Obama Loves America, He Just Doesn’t Like It Much

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani caused an uproar this week when he questioned whether President Barack Obama loves America. Progressive, er, I mean “objective” journalists were beside themselves over the prospect of a Republican saying about a Democratic president the things Democrats and the media routinely said about President George W. Bush, or members of Congress during the government shutdown. Such nerve! The fact of the matter is Obama does love America…he just doesn’t like it very much. What would your significant other say if you went to them right now and said, “Honey, I love you. In...

    Rudy Giuliani went straight for the jugular Wednesday night during a private group dinner here featuring Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by openly questioning whether President Barack Obama “loves America.” The former New York mayor, speaking in front of the 2016 Republican presidential contender and about 60 right-leaning business executives and conservative media types, directly challenged Obama’s patriotism, discussing what he called weak foreign policy decisions and questionable public remarks when confronting terrorists. “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani said during the...

    American Thinker ^ | 11/25/2014 | Carol Brown
    This past week-end on Meet the Press, former NYC Mayor Rudy Guiliani was insulted and smeared by fellow panelist and MSNBC host Michale  Eric Dyson. Dyson went so far as to accuse Guiliani of having a mentality akin to white supremacists. This is all the left has when confronted with the truth, which is exactly what Guiliani provided as he cited crime stats. But Dyson would have none of it. (I wrote about the exchange, here.) Guiliani has continued to try to place facts between the ears of anyone out there who appears allergic to them when he was...

    Down here in the Deep South, calls to bring back the hanging noose are coming from an unlikely source: a 62-year-old, black Republican mayoral candidate in Mississippi's largest city.Long-shot George Lambus acknowledges his inflammatory platform has made some residents of Jackson slam doors in his face. Others walked out of a church where he spoke. Yet he insists his tough stand is welcome in some quarters of a state capital racked by crime, much of it black-on-black.

    Phyllis Chesler saw part of 'The Death of Klinghoffer' and reports there were shouts of protest from the audience There was such a large police presence and so many police barricades that anyone passing by would think that terrorists were at large. There were no terrorists on Broadway—although terrorists would soon be mounting the stage of the Metropolitan Opera. The police were protecting the right of the Opera House to present the Palestine Liberation Organization and their cause as mythically majestic and eternally just. Here’s what was also extraordinary: “The Suits”—men and women in positions of power, both politically, legally,...

    Via the Corner, I can’t shake the strange feeling that (a) we might hear him use this coinage again on the trail a time or two, starting tomorrow night in New Hampshire, and (b) the expected gang-up on Romney at the CNN debate is going to be way fiercer — and more entertaining — than anyone expected. Just one question: Will it work? According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Sunday morning, three-quarters of Republicans and GOP leaning independent voters say they want a party nominee who can defeat President Barack Obama in 2012, even if that person doesn’t...

    Former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani has decided not to run for the Senate seat held by Kirsten E. Gillibrand, Republicans briefed on his decision said Monday evening. The decision by Mr. Giuliani, 65, leaves Senator Gillibrand — who was appointed to her seat less than a year ago, has never run in a statewide election, and is still unfamiliar to many voters — without a high-profile Republican opponent as she faces election to the seat. As recently as a week ago, a Quinnipiac University poll showed Mr. Giuliani leading Ms. Gillibrand in a hypothetical matchup, 50 percent to 40 percent....

    Subversives for Obama Friday, 26th September 2008 There are two American election campaigns currently running. The first, in the mainstream media, accepts Barack Obama at face value, no questions asked, while it viciously turns over Sarah Palin and her family whom it subjects to lies, smears and character assassination. The second, being conducted in the blogosphere and (with one or two notable exceptions such as the Wall Street Journal) not alluded to at all by the mainstream media, is the site of verbal warfare between Camp Obama and bloggers who are practising journalism as it used to be practised –...

    For the connoisseur of political hypocrisy, the shifting immigration stands of three GOP candidates are a veritable banquet. Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney have started doing passable impressions of Lou Dobbs. But can you trust a candidate whose record contradicts his campaign rhetoric? (That was a rhetorical question.) The CNN/YouTube debate was a hoot. Romney and Rudy squared off on what’s shaping up to be the defining issue of Campaign 2008 -- with the dignity of a couple of rabid mongooses. Rudy – who wants to “secure the border” (is there anyone, including Hillary, who says they don’t?)...

    Every four years pundits get to swing for the fences. Only the timid split differences and hairs. The pundits worth reading will declare what they see in the very cloudy crystal ball. Here's my take. There are two very separate battles within the fight for the GOP presidential nomination. There is the contest between Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, and Fred Thompson to be the conservative challenger to Rudy Giuliani. And then there is the contest between that challenger and the former New York City mayor. It is Rudy's hope that the race to be his opponent for the Republican nomination...

    We are all fallen, imperfect beings. The news of the federal indictment of Bernie Kerik is a sad moment, a cautionary tale, and an object lesson. Sad, because Kerik rose from the child of a prostitute to “America’s cop”–and this nation loves such tales of success. Cautionary, because it speaks to the fallibility of anointed heroes and the temptations of power. An object lesson, because it highlights the flaws and vulnerabilities of GOP front-runner Rudy Giuliani’s on the issues of corruption and immigration enforcement. Here’s what I wrote back in December 2004 when Kerik was forced to withdraw from consideration...

    National Review ^ | 10/31/2007 | David Klinghoffer
    The Giuliani candidacy has polarized politically conservative Christians and Jews — perhaps less over Rudy’s position on abortion than, more subtly, over a question of emphasis. Who’s right? The Jewish “neoconservatives,” who make up more than half of Giuliani’s star foreign-policy advisory team (Norman Podhoretz, Daniel Pipes, Michael Rubin, Martin Kramer, and David Frum)? Or Christians, like Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, who would not rule out supporting a third party candidate if Giuliani gets the nomination? To adjudicate the dispute, I propose an appeal to the part of the Bible on whose authority Jews (like myself) and Christians...

    Most Republican presidential candidates can brag about attracting followers with their valiant stances on important issues. John McCain’s supporters will point to the senator’s steadfast stance on Iraq as the primary reason they intend to vote for him, as, paradoxically, might Ron Paul’s ardent adherents. Tom Tancredo rallies anti-immigration enthusiasts behind his banner, and Fred Thompson attracts supporters with his understanding of federalism and his consistent conservatism. Rudy Giuliani’s followers support him because they think he can beat Hillary Clinton. In and by itself, the reasoning of Giuliani’s supporters is not illogical. Many people do take into account electability when...

    Glenn Beck's website has an inconsistent interview with Rudy Giulianion illegal immigration. First, Guiliani says illegal immigration isn't illegal. GLENN: Right. But isn't illegal immigration a crime in and of itself? GIULIANI: No. Then Guiliani says it shouldn't be illegal: GLENN: Should it be? GIULIANI: Should it be? No, it shouldn't be because the government wouldn't be able to prosecute it. We couldn't prosecute 12 million people. We have only 2 million people in jail right now for all the crimes that are committed in the country, 2.5 million. If you were to make it a crime, you would...

    Republican 2008 White House front-runner Rudolph Giuliani warned Tuesday it was not in the interest of the United States to help create a Palestinian state that would "support terrorism." In an article in the journal Foreign Affairs, the former New York mayor also said too much emphasis had been placed on Israeli-Palestinian peace talks which he said just brought up the same issues "again and again." Giuliani renamed the US "war on terror" as "the Terrorists' War on US" in his hawkish article in the September/October issue of the magazine, and predicted a long battle against "radical Islamic fascism." In...

    Like the Olympics, it's a game that's played every four years. The media march out on the field in their ideologically matching blazers and try to convince the GOP to ditch social issues. Their pitch goes something like this: Republican voters are far more moderate than their party's platform. The day of the religious right has come and gone. With pro-life, pro-marriage stands, the party alienates legions of voters who agree with it on taxes, spending and defense. An article in the July 5 Wall Street Journal ("Giuliani Support Hints at Shift") argues, "Mr. Giuliani's lead in the polls -...

    Because I'm convinced that, come November of 2008, Hillary Clinton will be the presidential candidate of the Socialist Party, so I think it's particularly important that the Republicans nominate Rudy Giuliani. I will admit that I have been waiting to see if Fred Thompson was going to toss his hat in the ring, but I finally got sick and tired of waiting. The guy's about 6-foot-5 and probably weighs 280; which doesn't hurt when he's portraying a New York City D.A., but he's simply not cut out to play a coquette. There are other attractive candidates in the GOP, but...
