Rudy Guiliani As President? by Alex Saitta

I lived in New York City when Rudy Giuliani was the mayor from 1993 to 2001. Rudy is an extremely capable leader. When he puts his mind to something, it gets accomplished.  

He is fiscally conservative. He was successful in cutting business and personal income tax rates in New York City and reducing welfare significantly. He also is very law and order. He took the mob out of the Fulton Street fish market and the garbage hauling industry, and reduced crime by more than half in the worst areas of the city and cleaned up Time Square, which was polluted with sex shops, and drug users. His social views are liberal. He took actions to protect illegal immigrants from the INS, he supports gay-rights, is pro-abortion and sued gun manufacturers. 

My fear is, Giuliani gets elected President, and we have a Democrat Congress. I think Rudy will see the path of least resistance as pushing through the Democrat Congress his socially liberal ideas.  

If the Republicans take back the Congress, I think Rudy will push his fiscally conservative ideas, knowing he’ll have the votes in Congress to rein in spending and reform government. For conservatives, Rudy would be a good President, if we had the 1994 Republican Congress. 

Having said all that, the Democrats are afraid of Rudy, because they know he is the one candidate Republican candidate who will get votes all along the political spectrum. In NYC, which is 4 to 1 Democrats, Rudy won two elections as a Republican. 

Both parties know if you win 3 of the following 4 states, you win the Presidency: Those states are California, Texas, New York and Florida. A southerner teamed up with Rudy, takes Texas, New York, and Florida and the Republicans win the White House. 

Dems know that, and that is why they don’t want Rudy as a nominee for President or even as the Vice President. They will be gunning to destroy him over the next year. You’ll see liberals pounding on Giuliani for his socially liberal ideas, just trying to discredit him with the Republican voters. It will be a fight that could destroy Rudy as a nominee and VP material.  

If I was the Republican national chairman, I would have advised Giuliani to stay out of the primary and avoided this upcoming fight and the exposure of all his negatives on social issues and in his marriages. Once the Presidential nominee was picked, I would have pushed to make Rudy the Vice President, and then had him work the northeastern states and Florida. Guiliani will deliver New York, the rest of the northeast and Florida, which are rich in electoral votes. If the Presidential nominee can deliver Texas and the south. The Republicans win going away.  

Republicans have the best strategy to win, and I think that is it, but Giuliani is so strong headed, he wants to be at the top of the ticket, so he wasn’t going to go along with that.

    I would love tosee guiliani as apres. not as someones sidekick. The fact that he is “a capable leader” is because he is a leader ready to fight not a sissy hiding in the background waiting for the last moment.

    Rudy for President: Please, get it going!! There is no other candidate Dem or Rep that we could possibly vote for.
    You are all we have – the only one worth voting for and the only one with what it takes to do the job. This country needs you.
    I have heard, “but he cheated on his wife.” Like that has never happened before? Yeah, right! We (not me) re-elected Clinton, didn’t we? We have never elected a woman, a Morman, a black – if you look at it that way (which I don’t) who’s left: McCain – if he got into a conflict or conferentation, he would either lose his guts or lose his temper – neither of which is very productive. He is just an old bag of air. Huckabee or Romney – no guts for the job. We don’t need to elect anyone who sees his religion as the reason he is better than anyone else. I can’t see either one of them standing up to world leaders.
    YOU ARE IT! PLEASE GET YOUR CAMPAIGN GOING AND MAKE IT HAPPEN FOR OUR COUNTRY.
    If I had the money, I would make a sizable donation for you, but I am 61, retired, and on a fixed income.

    Dear (Miss, Mrs, Ms) Schafer want a real President who honors the Constitution, God and the People? Get on your computer and go to the website http://www.RonPaul2008. A real Republican who has read and studied the Constitution and intends to stick by it, not by the status quo. He is not connected to the CFR, THE TRILATERIAL COMMISSION NOR THE Socialist (hiding under the Democratic Party)
