He withheld routine information about governmental operations from other elected officials, civic groups and the news media until he was repeatedly sued and ordered by courts to release it.
He was intransigent in dealing with state-controlled entities such as the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. His style was not to negotiate on behalf of the city but rather to confront or demand, or maintain a stony silence. That approach meant missed opportunities for the city.
Mr. Giuliani set himself up as an arts arbiter by threatening to cut funding for a local museum because of a painting he labeled antireligious. The leaders of a number of arts organizations courageously signed a protest letter. Others did not. Those who signed and those who did not shared the fear that the mayor would cut their funding in reprisal.....***
Sounds like a butt kicker to me: bring it on. PS: I also like John Bolton. Got the picture?
"I feel differently because he knows how to make decisions in a very hard world filled with tough people." .................Can't fault him for that. The ideal candidate for a Liberal is usually a big Wuss.
Go Giuliani!!! And take McCain with you!!!
Personally, I wish we had a president who would take a "sharp stick in the eye" approach to Dem whiners. By the way, a lot of us cheered when Giuliani threatened to cut funding of the Brooklyn Museum for its pornographic and disgusting exhibition. He made the beneficiaries of city money aware of their duty to the taxpayers -- a good thing if you ask me.
Rudy is a ripper of new ones, something TOTALLY lacking in the GOP.
On hearing that, I like Rudy even more! LOL!
Now there's a scientific poll for you! Who the hell is Crain?
It's the Crain New York Business site - LINKED above.
I've looked at Guliani several times and just can't get excited about him....
His Social views leave me cold....
His personal life is a disaster.....
His decision making skills are questionable.....
Every time I look at him the same question comes to mind, "Is this the best the republican party can proffer?"
I could see Guiliani in a cabinet position, maybe even VP, but not as president.
I agree; we need spine in the GOP.
Unfortunately, Giuliani's liberal tendencies detract from the fact that he does have a spine.
But hey, it's the primaries. Hunter has spine and conservatism in him...but oh well.
If Rudy wins...well, we'll see.
Not sure, but when an online poll in portland or (kerry 70+ %) was favorable to Rudy, one of his boosters posted it here as real news.
I'm not even a New Yorker and I know that Javits and the Port Authority have had questionable problems with unions and corruption and all that goes with those things.
It looks that way, doesn't it? Besides, the GOP could use some backbone. I'm sick of the compassionate conservative fig leaf way of governing.
The interesting part of this poll (prompted by the LINKED editorial in Post #1) is why LIBERALS don't like Giuliani.
Giuliani looks more and more like conservatives' 80% friend.
Because he has an (R) after his name. Oh, and he brought down crime (because he empowered the police), which is always a no-no (though they should be cheering his gun control policies...but hey, liberalism is a mental disorder).
Imagine Rudy meeting with members of either party of Congress. I bet the Oval Office will need another carpet for the number of people called on it.
