It is getting harder and harder just to find one decent man.
Should people care? Arguable. Will people care next November? Probably.
Hitlery's minions would run attack ads reminding swing state Reagan Democrats of Rudy's disgusting personal life. This is yet another of Rudy's vulnerabilities. It is further evidence that he is not electable next November. As such, he cannot be allowed to win the nomination.
Indeed, that was a big factor last year. Not everyone cares about this kind of stuff, but these kind of scandals swing just enough voters to make a difference.
Even BJ Clinton, running against the inarticulate Bush Sr. and Bob Dole, could not even get a majority. If BJ had lived a cleaner lifestyle, he might have won two landslides.
I’m convinced it is folly to try and switch someone on this forum from thinking they way you do, so I’m pretty much out of the biz of slamming a candidate and praising another. It is a no-win scenario.
It's true that FReepers, being better informed than the general public, tend to have already made their minds up about who they will vote for. In the larger population, however, negative attack ads are effective, as a well communicated negative message can devastating to a campaign.
I read somewhere, I think about online restaurant reviews, that one negative review has as much impact as ten positive reviews.
Isn't it wonderful seeing Republicans take the EXACTLY same defense that Clinton and the Clinton-Apologists took not that long ago???...LOL The 'Clinton Vaccine' is alive and well.
So now Republicans are saying that conduct and character no longer matters??? The irony is incredible. YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP!!!
While Rudy had his escapades with his cigar bar bimbo, the NYFirefighters needed radios that worked.
No. We fired executives that are messing around on the job. Rudy was busy with his latest fling rather than working to get his city working smoothly.
It's sickening how the Rudebots cavalierly dismiss every revelation about this hunchbacked egomaniac.
As if every city budget has a provision for financing the Mayor's sexual urges on the taxpayers' dime.
This self-centered sociopath treated his wife and the mother of his children like they were inconvenient sacks of garbage.
Rudy and the NY tax payers also pay to upport Judy and her dirt poor family.
As for Hazleton, the Giulianis are buying more than gas there these days. On Nov. 1, records show, the couple purchased Nathan’s childhood home from her parents for an unspecified sum.
I am by no means an expert on something like this. Isn’t doing something like this against the law?
Rudy - the second best democrat in the race.
Giuliani’s defense of Islam as a ‘GREAT RELIGION’ (his words) in the CNN debate was absolutely disgusting.
The point is not that he had an affair. The point is that they cooked the books to hide the affair (and continue to lie and mislead about it).
In other words, this isn't that he has low personal morals, but that his administration was corrupt. Huge difference.
This is just the beginning for Rudy. If he happens to get the nomination, the Dems are going to be dragging out his dirty laundry over and over again. The American people will (rightfully) be disgusted. Rudy will never be elected President.
His track record says he would.
“In other words, this isn’t that he has low personal morals, but that his administration was corrupt. Huge difference.”
low morals = dishonesty
Of course, but there is a distinction between a man who’s a jerk at home and a man who’s crooked on the job.
I’m not voting for a pal, I’m voting for a President. I can overlook a messy personal life, but would never vote for a crooked politician.
