Works for me
I'd like to hear him talk about this in more detail.
I can hardly wait to see how Rudy rips new ones all over the place.
Eeeeew? I think it's sweet. Who's got a pic of Teresa/Jon Carry kissing?
Rudy has more cajones than the entire Congressional Republican leadership put together.
Rudy has a strong 84% conservative approval rating. (Battle ground poll as of Jan.11, '07)
The rebirth of New York City, the most visible urban achievement in the 20th century is the work of the person now dubbed Americas mayor. For the millions of Americans who live in New York and the millions more who work or whose livelihood has been affected by its revival the contrast between the pre and post Giuliani years could not be more striking.
His defense of Israel and intolerance for Arab and U.N. sponsored anti-Semitism is legendary.
He figuratively walked into the lion's den of a crime ridden, high tax, and decaying city and carried out a conservative agenda of tax cuts, crime reduction and, in the case of the Brooklyn Museum, defense of religion in the public square. On this count Giuliani seems to be the winner in the public character category for his extraordinary vision and leadership.
Indeed, in one recent poll, majorities of Republicans who were informed of Giulianis views on social issues said that they were either minor issues or no issues at all; only 16% said that they wouldn't vote for him after being informed of these views.
In the online GOP Bloggers poll, Giuliani is consistently one of the few candidates to end up with a net positive acceptability rating. These internet denizens are well-informed, and overwhelmingly self-describe as conservative (78% self-describe as 7 or higher on a 10-scale of conservatism). If these people can support Rudy, anyone can.
Please freep mail areafiftyone if you would like to be added to the Rudy for President list!
Rudy also kicked Arafat out of a concert hall. This was back when it wasn't fashionable and Clinton was hosting the terrorist in the White House as his most frequent guest.
I agree 100%!
I remember this West Nile spraying incident. Funny how one forgets these details and it comes back now that we're thinking about 2008.
I was reminded the other day how he defunded an art exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum because it was that anti-Christian crucifix/urine kind of garbage.
I think it's a stupid move for him to allow the cover of the NY Post to show that...unless he has no say in it? I mean, it's sort of a tabloid-ish paper, isn't it?
His THIRD, much younger wife? Two failed marriages behind him? This stuff matters to a lot of Conservatives, and he's going to need EVERY one of their votes now and later if he's nominated.
Just a very poor PR move, IMHO, if he had any say in it. And if he didn't he'd better do some damage control, toot sweet. I'd expect something like that from, say, Donald Trump, but someone that wants to appear Presidential? Nope.
I doubt he has any say on what the NY Post puts on the cover. And whatever his past marriage problems, I don't think kissing his wife is anything he needs to apologize for.
When you are a public figure you have no control over what appears on the front page of newspapers or rags.
And going after Arafat at a time when Clinton was practically dating the guy took guts!
I'm taking a wait and see attitude. I'm not impressed with any of the GOP candidates right now. I'll give Rudy points on the WOT, but he has a lot of personal baggage.
How you conduct your personal life is as important as your public life, IMHO. But that's just me. :)
