I'm told by two reliable sources that Rudy Giuliani intends to run for the GOP nomination for president in 2012. He may throw his hat in the ring soon.


Rudy's theory of the race: In the fall of 2007, he decided he couldn't compete with both Mitt Romney and John McCain in New Hampshire, and disastrously decided to try to pull back there and pitch his tent in Florida. This year, he'll commit everything to New Hampshire, where he thinks he has a good shot at beating Romney—whom he criticized there earlier this week. He then thinks he can beat whichever more socially conservative candidate(s) is left by winning what are still likely to be winner-take-all primaries in big states like California, New York, and New Jersey.

Rudy's message: I'm tough enough to put our fiscal house in order and to protect us from enemies abroad. The U.S. in 2012 is in bad shape—like New York in 1993. The budget crisis is as severe—and seemingly intractable—as the crime/welfare crisis was in New York then. Rudy dealt with that when people said it couldn't be done. He'll deal with this.

Isn't his abysmal 2008 campaign a disqualifier? Rudy's answer: Consider the New York parallel. Rudy lost to David Dinkins in 1989, making several unforced errors and running without a focused message. In 1993, as the streets of New York plunged into crisis, Rudy ran a disciplined campaign pledging to turn the city around. He won, and in a disciplined first term, he governed successfully.

It seems implausible that Rudy Giuliani could win the nomination. But it's an implausible year.

Heh heh, you said santorum.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=santorum

santorum

The sometimes frothy, usually slimy, amalgam of lubricant, stray fecal matter, and ejaculate that leaks out of the receiving partner's anus after a session of anal intercourse. Named, by popular demand and usage, after legislator Rick Santorum because of his homophobic political statements.
"That move was about as slick as santorum!"

He and Ron Paul are going to get the same number of electoral votes.

I thought for awhile Ron would have some great momentum because I think he'll win the big Iowa Straw Poll and get a golden ticket out of Iowa. Then he started talking about Heroin and he would have handled the Osama thing differently.....

I can't hear his name mentioned where I don't see him in drag. I think I was permanently scarred after seeing that.

Bingo. For all his good ideas he has the crazy side that scares the shit out of people.

**** rudy g... ****in scumbag pos

I think ron paul is gonna surprise - there are a lot of young ppl that are crazy about him. we'll see. but the dude has his priorities right & hey, you can't have 'change' without changing shit out. who gives a **** about heroin users anyway? really. how many are there? does anyone on this board know a heroin head? **** no. the shit is a myth cooked up to keep y'all thinking there's some massive heroin culture. there isn't. oxycontin users there are, tho... heroin with a script... imagine that...
