    April 23, 2007 Giuliani: Put More States In Play, Or Else We'll Use We've heard Giuliani advisers make this argument, but we've never heard it from the candidate himself. Interviewed this a.m. on the Imus substitute on MSNBC, Giuliani said "From a political point of view, I probably have the best chance of putting states like New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Washington, Oregon, California in play. And as a Republicans, if we don't put those states in play next time ... we may see a Democratic president." Pennsylvania and New Jersey are realistic. California, Oregon and Washington are second-tier....

    This is addressed to conservatives - if, in the last few months, you have used the phrase "because he is the only one who can win against Hillary" (some "victory"...), or some variation, don't bother reading this, it will not do you any good. You and your ilk, by helping engineer a putrid path of least resistance for the lumbering political bureaucracy to follow, are responsible for the leftward drift of the American conservatism movement, and will be as long as it is aligned with the Republican party. Go advertise the latest poll. Forward: (tone) There is a whiff of...

    We've got some real challenges facing us. FR was established to fight against government corruption, overstepping, and abuse and to fight for a return to the limited constitutional government as envisioned and set forth by our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and other founding documents. One of the biggest cases of government corruption, overstepping and abuse that I know of is its disgraceful headlong slide into a socialist hell. Our founders never intended for abortion to be the law of the land. And they never intended the Supreme Court to be a legislative body. They...

    OBAMA, GIULIANI LEAD PACK IN RACE FOR PRESIDENT AMONG 18-24 YEAR-OLDS, HARVARD POLL FINDS Foreign Policy Issues, Particularly the War in Iraq and Genocide in Darfur, of Top Concern to Young People Today Washington, DC - A new national poll by Harvard University's Institute of Politics (IOP), located at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, finds former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and U.S. Senator Barack Obama as 18-24 year-olds' first choices for President in 2008 among likely young voters of both parties. Regarding the mood of the country, less than one-third (31%) of young people say they...

    Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 04/15/2007 | Sara Kugler
    It is hard to shock New Yorkers, yet Rudy Giuliani teetered close to the line when he sauntered onto a stage wearing a platinum-blond wig, a face full of makeup, white gloves and a pink gown filled out in all the right places. His appearance at an annual political roast was exactly 10 years ago. At the time, the idea of the tough-talking mayor in a ball gown raised eyebrows but was mostly accepted as a good joke -- all part of the shenanigans at the roast known as the Inner Circle dinner. After winning re-election that year, Giuliani took...

    Giuliani's Legal Past Hints At Future NEW YORK, Apr. 9, 2007 (AP) Long before he became mayor of New York or the Republican front-runner for the presidency, Rudy Giuliani made a name for himself as a crime-busting federal prosecutor in Manhattan, taking on the mob and white-collar criminals in a manner that hinted of bigger things to come. During a nearly seven-year stretch ending in 1989, Giuliani steered dozens of high-profile cases to completion, garnering more than 4,000 convictions. He tangled with mob bosses, Wall Street executives and corrupt politicians _ and was never afraid to invite the bright lights...

    "What they say in Washington is not going to affect the fact that there are terrorists around the world that are planning to come here and kill us," he said in Iowa, in the most spirited part of his newly honed stump speech. Pointing his finger and bouncing up and down on his toes, he declared, "It is something I understand better than anyone else running for president." H said, it is time to eliminate the estate tax and vastly simplify the tax code. But it was the Iraq war and efforts against terrorism on which he was most impassioned....

    An internal Rudy Giuliani strategy memo "says conservative voters already know and are comfortable with the candidate. The March 22 memo, a copy of which was obtained by The State, quotes polls from Gallup and Newsweek that show Giuliani with a wide lead among self-described conservatives and regular churchgoers and a slim lead among those who say they attend church weekly." Writes strategist Brent Seaborn: "There are, of course, some voters that will never vote for Mayor Giuliani, and we know that we will see polls tighten. But the 'when voters find out about Rudy’s record the sky will fall'...
  • Does Giuliani support federal funding of foreign abortions?

    Ronald Reagan first declared that no USAID money would go to any organization that promoted abortion as a method of family planning. On his second day in office President George W. Bush reinstated the policy of banning foreign aid to organizations which promote abortion, a policy the previous President Clinton had reversed. We are often told by Rudy supporters that his support for women’s choice to have abortions doesn't matter because he can’t have much effect on the question of abortion. Someone needs to ask Rudy if he will take Ronald Reagan’s stand on this issue or Bill Clinton’s. Since...

    If you listened closely this week, you might have heard Rudy Giuliani’s presidential campaign crack. Like the hard smack of a pebble against a car windshield, Rudy’s reiteration of his support for public funding of abortion put a knick in his veneer that will keep snapping, crackling, and popping in all directions if there isn’t some serious repair work done, but quick. First of all, let’s get something straight. I’m a Rudy fan. I like the smile and the strut and the machismo, and all that they portend for both my constant entertainment and consistent protection under a Giuliani administration....

    Rudy Giuliani blasted Democrats on the Iraq war and emphasized his role after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, which made him a national figure, in a speech to supporters in St. Petersburg on Wednesday. Giuliani, leading in polls in the Republican presidential primary both nationally and in Florida, was making his first public campaign appearance in the Tampa Bay area. "You have to be on offense against terrorists," Giuliani told the crowd. "Before Sept. 11, we were playing defense." If a Democrat wins the election, "we'll be right back playing defense because that's what the Democrats are doing," he said....

    The 2008 marathon has begun in double quick time. It is disconcerting to be so far ahead of where we normally are in presidential elections, but the political reality today is that the clusters of primaries, rivers of funding, and bookings of TV spots and experts are all on fast forward. I will be discussing the main contenders in this space, but one has to start with the contender who has come out, in the words of the Civil War cavalry Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, "firstest with the mostest." Rudy Giuliani.To everyone's surprise, Giuliani has been dominating the Republican preference...

    The same things have been posted about Rudy ad nauseum on this site, over and over and over, so I thought I would put up a top 22 list of Rudy comments so folks can just cut and paste their favorites, and not have to go to the trouble of pounding the keyboard. 1. Rudy is a social liberal and will destroy the GOP brand 2. The GOP brand is in extremis, and only Rudy can save it from implosion. 3. Rudy has had too many wives and is unfit 4. The GOP candidates have had about a dozen wives...

    Rudolph W. Giuliani accepted the endorsement of Steve Forbes yesterday and embraced Mr. Forbes’s signature issue, saying he liked the idea of a flat tax — something Mr. Giuliani denounced when Mr. Forbes was running for president. If there were no federal income tax, “maybe I’d suggest not doing it at all, but if we were going to do it, a flat tax would make a lot of sense,” Mr. Giuliani, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, said yesterday, standing beside Mr. Forbes at the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square in New York. But he said it was not...

    Rudolph Giuliani's wife, Judith, will ``continue to play an important role'' in his presidential campaign, his spokesman said -- despite grumbling from within the ex-mayor's circle that her involvement is creating tensions in the organization. Friday's statement of solidarity came from campaign spokesman Michael McKeon one day after Giuliani's third spouse confirmed publicly that she has been divorced twice, not once, as widely reported when they wed. She was married to a man named Jeffrey Ross, now of Florida, from 1974 to 1979. ``She's going to continue to play an important role in the campaign, traveling with her husband, introducing...
