Giuliani Eyes New York Comeback

Posted on Aug 25, 2009
AP / Joe DeMaria

Then-New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, dressed in drag for a satire of “Victor/Victoria” entitled “Rudy Rudia.” It’s almost hard to believe he wasn’t able to win the Republican nomination for president.

New York Times:

Nineteen months after ending his disastrous run for the presidency, Rudolph W. Giuliani is clearing a path for a possible race for governor in 2010, believing public anger at an ineffectual Albany and unease over the economy could create ideal conditions for a Republican to reclaim the governor’s mansion.

Mr. Giuliani has told associates that he will decide on a candidacy within 30 to 60 days, as he weighs whether he can be elected statewide and what impact another campaign would have on his business interests.

The NY Firefighters and their union will not sit quiet if Rudy 9/11 runs. The omnipoptent ommnipresent megalomaniac failed the NYC Emergency Response Center from the start. His egotistic decision-making policies were as faulty as his ego.

I will never forget this parasitical plutocrat’s cheap jokes about community organizing at the RNC convention. Yes, how dare people actually organize their community against the likes of freeloading pillagers like him.

What a sorry assed putrid waste of human flesh.

Why if it the repukelicans who are done on gays, multiple marriages-likey Ghoulani had had along with Newt and others and yet have the gall to tell others how to run their lives and still remain in politics? Must be the dumbing down of Americans. Rudi needs to be put before Sarah Palins death panel for execution. And all the old repugs and dems who have lost their usefulness along with their minds,like McCain.
