RUDY: FLORIDA STRATEGY WILL WIN (Giuliani sucking-up to latinos)
NY POST ^ | January 14, 2008 | CARL CAMPANILE

HAVANA PARTY: Giuliani aboard a vintage firetruck at the Three Kings Parade in Miami's Little Havana.

A fading, cash-strapped Giuliani...all but admitted a defeat here could doom his candidacy. Giuliani courted the influential Hispanic vote in South Florida. His base of support is Florida's Northeastern transplants, and Cuban-Americans. His support has eroded here following poor performances in Iowa and New Hampshire and he is battling a cash crunch ....about a dozen top staffers will not be paid this month to help preserve resources for Florida, and Super Tuesday.

Giuliani got rattled and was chased away from a campaign stop when pro-lifers showed up at a Florida speaking event. Giulini ran the other way rather than face pro-lifers. Rooty's private life epitomizes Planned Parenthood's condomized Fully Fornicating society (Giuliani donated to PPhood, and NARAL honored Mayor Rooty's exhaustive efforts to advance abortion rights.)

Unzipped Rudy is something else. Rudy had no qualms causing the public humiliation of his second wife by dumping her at a news conference without even telling her. He tried to dump his two young kids out in the streets---saying he was dividing the Mayoral mansion in two---to move in his mistress. Married Rudy's porking his mistress on the public dime and hiding the theft of public services in obscure city agencies, then lying about it to voters.

Giuliani's messy personal life is a big turnoff to women voters. It makes wives and moms around the country skeptical of putting him in the White House. If Rooty can't control his zipper, how can he control the country?

One news poll found 50% of women overall - and 48% of GOP women - are less likely to vote for Giuliani because he dumped his second wife Donna Hanover at a 2000 press conference.

Lots of women say Giuliani's assigning seven tax-funded bodyguards/drivers to his girlfriend while his wife was still NYC's First Lady was EVEN WORSE than Rudy's public humiliation of the mother of his children. "Rotten" is a word that came up again and again when women refer to Rudy.

WRT Rooty's "family values"----remember that some 82% of those polled had a problem with Rooty not attending his own son's graduation.

If Rudy doesn’t get traction in FL, he will have to withdraw and throw his support to McCain.

He dumped his wife at press conference? Now that’s a politcian! An empty suit by any other name is still an empty suit.

The Illegal-Alien Crime Wave (Rudy defied law---ordered NYPD not to notify INS of alien crimes)
City Journal, January 14, 2004 (

Former mayor Rudolph Giuliani sued all the way up to the Supreme Court to defend the city’s sanctuary policy against a 1996 federal law decreeing that cities could not prohibit their employees from cooperating with the INS.

When advisors cautioned against it, "Oh yeah?" responded Giuliani, "just watch me. "

The INS, Rooty claimed, with what turned out to be grotesque irony, only aims to “terrorize people.” Though he lost in court, he remained defiant to the end.

On September 5, 2001, Giuliani's handpicked charter-revision committee ruled that New York could still require that its employees keep immigration information confidential to preserve trust between immigrants and government.

Six days later on 9/11 several visa-overstayers participated in the most devastating attack on the city, and the country, in history.

New York conveniently forgot the 1996 federal ban on sanctuary laws until a gang of five Mexicans—four of them illegal—abducted and brutally raped a 42-year-old mother of two near some railroad tracks in Queens.

The NYPD had already arrested three of the illegal aliens numerous times for such crimes as assault, attempted robbery, criminal trespass, illegal gun possession, and drug offenses.

The NYPD had never notified the INS.

CONCLUSION Rooty doesn't govern----he "rules" like a tinhorn dictator. Rooty's sole concern was his political ambitions----to suckup to illegals fraudulently registered to voter. Rooty's trampling the US Constitution and ignoring the US Rule Of Law is so typical of the discredited 1940's-era utilitarian doctrine: "the ends justify the means."

THE WHOLE STORY FROM PUBLIC RECORDS Rooty's children by his second wife do not use their father's last name; they remember all too well how Rooty dumped them and poblicly humiliated their mother to cavort with his mistress (now his third wife). Rudy maliciously tried to put his family out on the streets.

With his mistress waiting in the wings, then-Mayor Rudy actually called a press conference to publicly announce his separation from his second wife EXCEPT THAT HE HAD NOT BOTHERED TO TELL HIS THEN-WIFE, DONNA HANOVER, THE MOTHER OF HIS CHILDREN, BEFOREHAND.

Publicly humiliating his wife was not enough to gratify his savagery against his family. Rooty then publicly announced he wanted to "divide the mayoral home" in two, one side for his wife AND one side for his mistress---a transparent ploy to force his wife and children into the streets.

Public documents indicate Hanover was forced to go to court to declare Gracie Mansion the marital home to keep a roof over her children's head. The judge acquiesced to Hanover's plea.

Thwarted but not defeated, Rudy moved in with a gay couple while his wife fended off relentless Rudy's vindictive efforts to ditch her and his kids.

On Mother's day 2000, while still married, Rudy maliciouly paraded his mistress up and down Second Avenue for newspaper pictures. The evilness of this marital betrayal astonished even blasé New Yorkers.

But Giuliani's malovelent vendetta against his wife and children was still not sated. Public documents indicate Rudy cut the security detail his wife, thus endangering the mother of his children......and provided government-paid security detail to his mistress (some seven NYPD officers and cars at her beck and call 24/7). Since Rudy was still married, his mistress had no official duties (unless you consider getting Rudy sexually blitzed an "official duty".)

It was recently uncovered that Rudy hid the considerable government expenses for his mistress in obscure city agencies, hiding the theft of city services out of sight of the law.

Giuliani's memory is undergoing an Extreme Makeover but he's still deaf, dumb and blind. He ran around NYC like a chicken with his head cutoff, grabbing guns, worshipping abortion, indulging himself with mistresses (soaking taxpayers for the expenses), surrounding hmself with crooks and lowlifes, assorted child predators, jailbirds, and other losers.

Republican PTB should get with it and dump this RINO---with Rudy in the race, Repubs are looking at another Nov 2006 debacle.

Rudy's losing support in FL on a daily basis, and Rasmussen has it rated as a 4-way battle. ( McCain, Rudy, Huck, Romney)

Jeb Bush's campaign team signed on with Romney early in 2007. Romney has been well received by the Latinos there since he gave an anti Fidel and anti Raul Castro speeches there early in 07 also. Romney has been doing well in the conservative parts of the State but Guliani does well among retired NY liberals, of which there are many. Romney will either win FLorida or come in a close second maintaining his Delegate lead either way. In any case he will take the conservative vote as he did in Iowa and NH while the liberal Republican and Dem switch over votes go for McCain, Huck and Rudy.

He will also go into Feb. 5 with Nevada putting him even further ahead of the rest of the field. Of course the MSM will probably ignore Nevada just as it did Wyoming. Wyoming had as many delegates as NH but since it is a red state the MSM has been doing its best to try to ignore it.

If the Fred supporters succeed in getting his voters to vote for Romney in Michigan tomorrow, thus knocking McCain down a little that will greatly help Rudy in Florida also. Rudy needs Florida, but since his main plan was always Super Tuesday it may not be do or die for him as much as let’s say South Carolina is for Fred.

I heard George Will say on Stephy’s show that if Rootie wins NY, NJ, and AM and CT, states that give all delegates to the winner, he will be in the LEAD after Feb 5th.

The conservative infighting/indecison will give us a Rootie v. Hillary match-up in the Fall.

Rudy's losing support in FL on a daily basis,


But in this bizarre primary system (where states like Michigan, Wyoming, South Carolina have had their delegate numbers cut in half because they moved up their primaries), if Giuliani wins Florida--he will be in the lead in delegates by far---while at the same time seeing his national support drop like a rock!!

It will have dropped from almost 40% to well under 20%. While seeing his number fall off a cliff--he will have pulled way out in the lead in delegates!! Amazing system, isn't it?

As George Will said on Stephy's Sunday show, almost certain winner take all wins in New England on Super Tuesday will propel rudy into first place in the delegate count. No need for polls....

GET READY FOR RUDY VS. HILLARY GENERAL ELECTION (Forget about Obama, McLame, Fred, Mitt, Huck)

I thought she would parade around claiming she is “Latino” just like she claims she is “Italian”.

The division of wins between the top Republicans so far is exactly what Rudy was hoping for, and banking on.

This was his team strategy all along, we will see if it pans out. If he can at least control the bleeding of votes for 3 more weeks he will win.

With all the negatives surfacing concerning our "9/11 hero mayor," I have yet to read anything referring to what I consider Giuliani's most evil deed. I refer to the cruel and very abrupt closing of the Neponsit Nursing Home:

Resident removal: a modern long-term care saga

U.S. and State Assail City in Closing of Queens Nursing Home

Judge Rules On Neponsit Health Care

Nursing Home Demolition To Be Pursued Despite Ruling

Vallone Says: Reopen Neponsit Home

Neponsit Refugees Win $5 Million Settlement from City

$5 Million Settlement Reached With City Over Evacuation of a Queens Nursing Home

In Queens, Closed Nursing Home Still Open to Controversy

Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut and New York have a grand total of 201 delegates. Assuming he wins Florida, that puts him at 258.

Where is he going to get the other 933 delegates from?
