I saw info for a Rudy 2012 presidential committee over at Doug’s place. So I checked out the contact info… Long story short, I called the contact numbers and a got a “line busy” noise on both. My guess is that it’s not a hoax and Rudy’s team registered both last year just in case […]

Looks like somebody has given the green light to the surrogates to talk about Obama’s past drug use. This doesn’t surprise me about Giuliani, but Huckabee? First Giuliani… Then here’s a link to Huck. Ugh. Tweet

Guiliani Hints At Dem For McCain Veep?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Democrats, Giuliani, McCain, Veep

My guess is this is just a head fake from Rudy to throw off the Dems, but if McCain did pick somebody like Joe Lieberman it would be game changing. From CNN: Rudy Giuliani, former presidential candidate turned John McCain supporter, said Thursday that a Democrat could conceivably occupy the number 2 spot on the […]

Why Did Rudy Fail?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Giuliani

Paraphrasing KSuv, “It’s the media stupid!” From Independent Liberal: In snubbing Iowa and New Hampshire, you must realize that you aren’t simply ignoring voters in those early states. You’re snubbing the national press, which needs to feed off of these early momentum-builders to write their narratives and create their stories. If you don’t compete there, […]

Rudy Saying Goodbye?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Florida, Giuliani

Interesting doublespeak from Giuliani today… From LA Times: In a meeting in the back of his chartered plane en route to St. Petersburg, Fla., a short while ago, the onetime, longtime GOP front-runner told a small group of reporters, including The Times’ Louise Roug: “The winner of Florida will win the nomination.” He then went […]

Giuliani: Done in by Ego

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in Giuliani

Unless the poll numbers are wrong (which, you know, never happens), Rudy Giuliani is going down tomorrow. Needless to say, no one will be trying the “big state” strategy again anytime soon – except I think Giuliani’s crash-and-burn goes a lot deeper than failed election tactics.
