Media loves beating a dead horse.
Kerick's 24 hr nomination was apparently not a good career choice. If this guy is half of what the media is reporting, he should have known better.
Well, according to the liberal media, Kerik is Satan incarnate. But now that he has no chance of running Homeland Security, who cares?
People who are happy it reflects poorly on gulagiani, like me.
Who the h*ll is gulagiani, a Russian prison guard?(humor)
Yet somehow this same media has been unable to investigate most of McGreevey's dark past (including similar mob ties). I guess breaking a leg on the beach is a common occurance?
So sorry, I'll have to use the spelling czecher next time.
It reflects no worse on Giuliani than Halliburton does on Cheney.
Giuliani will be either the P or VP on the ticket, and frankly after all the over-the-top, obnoxious, unnecessary, and incessant demonization of him, I'm going to enjoy watching the cranks have their conniption fits when it happens.
I believe that whole legions of pro-life conservatives will withhold their vote if your prediction comes to pass.
I like Rudy BUT he's WAY too liberal to win Republican primaries, without a doubt.
Perhaps VP, but I don't think that's his goal.
I believe that hyperbole is probably total baloney. I am a pro-life social conservative Christian, who is EXTREMELY disappointed in some of Guiliani's positions, and especially some of his social behavior. Nevertheless, I am weighing his candidacy on the totality of the situation, and unless the political landscape changes drastically, we will still be somewhat divided in 2008. With control of both chambers and the WH, the GOP is going to get unfairly blamed for many of the negative things that happen in the next 4 years, and another presidential win will likely again be won only through a tough fight. Thus we may be forced to choose the nominee with the best chance of winning in the general rather than closest to my positions. Rudy easily has the most crossover appeal of any current realistic potential candidate (though certainly an unknown could emerge), enough that would likely more than cancel out the "sit at home because I prefer suicide to compromise" crowd.
Not to mention that if Bush is successful in naming 3+ strict constructionists to the USSC, including the replacement of at least 1 liberal, than abortion becomes less important as an election issue. Plus I think he can moderate his position on guns.
This sort of reminds me of the McCarthy thing in the fifies.
You date a girl and break up with her. Then, later, she is found with dirt on her hands that has nothing to do with you. Heck, maybe the dirt is the reason you broke up with her.
Don't matter though. The headline alone is what sells the paper. There is really no story here.
You would have a point if this were an isolated incident in Kerik's life. It is not.
However, may I correct one thing:
sit at home because I prefer
suicide prayer to compromise"
Have to go put up Christmas ornaments (and pray) now.
Sorry, I don't get your point. I can tell you that anyone, no matter how pure, brought up in a tough neighborhood, would have a lot of "questionable" relationships in their past. For me, it is irrelevant unless there is some evidence other than just the relationship to bolster concerns.
Kerik is a scumbag who associates with scumbags.
