Rudy Self-Destructs on Meet The Press

Rudy Self-Destructs on Russert
By M.J. Rosenberg | bio
I have been watching Meet The Press since, I don't know, Estes Kefauver days and, I'm sad to say, Rudy Giuliani provided the worst performance I've ever seen by a major Presidential candidate.

Okay, I am not sad to say. I am delighted. I believe that, although I have my clear preference, none of the major candidates from either party would be a disastrous President except for Giuliani. Yes, some would be awful. Any of the Republicans would extend our long national nightmare.

But, in my opinion, Rudy is in a whole other category. Surrounded by crazy people like Podhoretz and Pipes, a Giuliani Presidency would guarantee one, two, three many Iraqs and jeopardize this country's survival.

So I was delighted to see his halting, nervous, scared, inarticulate performance on MTP yesterday.

And he had every reason to be scared.

Russert prosecuted the famed prosecutor, enumerating one Giuliani scandal after another. All Rudy could do was giggle. He reminded me of that ancient clip in which Bobby Kennedy grilled some miscreant at a Senate hearing and the bad guy laughed at every question. Bobby finally said: "Are you going to tell us anything or just giggle? I thought only little girls giggled?." Sexist, yes (it was 1959).

But it destroyed the giggly witness.

That was Rudy yesterday. All giggles and deer-in-the-headlights terror.

And with good reason. There are no good (or any) answers to the questions Russert posed about "Driving Miss Judy," Giuliani and Associates' client list, Bernard Kerik, etc etc.

And Russert didn't even ask about the priest-rapist on Rudy's staff.

Great television. Bye bye, Rudy.

I watched half of the interview yesterday and I thought he came across ok.

They only bad part IMO was the fact that his mistress had security before anyone knew they were together. He tried to spin it and say that wasn't true but I don't buy it.

Oh course recxjake contributes nothing once again.

How in the world can we possibly afford to keep taxes low and go to war with Iran? It's completely irrational.

Rudy wouldn't have to go to war with Iran if they were as afraid of what he'd do as you seem to be.

I agree, we'll need to start slashing the 50% of the federal budget that is entitlement programs if something like that becomes necessary.

Sincere question.

Rudy answered the hard questions... he did a good job. Rudy isn't perfect, he has never tried to say he was. But Rudy gets results.

If you want a candidate that will keep taxes low, cut spending, reform health with free market principles, end illegal immigration, stay on the offensive against terrorists then Rudy is your guy.

If you want to go back on defense against terrorists, Ron Paul and the Democrats are you candidate.

If you want higher taxes, bigger goverment, govt mandated health care, vote Democrat.

... but my quest for specificity remains.

What exactly makes up that 50%. Ie, what constitutes entitlement exactly?

Good notion, and at the same time we should take a page from WW2.

As this is also a "war for our national existence", or so I'm told my some, I think we should adopt the WW2 national tax rate of 100% on all income over $25,000/year, (with that 25k adjusted to the equivalent in 2007-2008 dollars of course).
