Rudy Giuliani is expected to endorse John McCain at the Reagan library in California on Wednesday. The man who suffered one of the most dramatic campaign implosions in recent memory explained his collapse to supporters this way: “You don’t always win, but you can always try to do it right, and you did.” Although doing it a bit earlier, too, wouldn’t have hurt.
Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani’s just the guy to come out swinging against “the Muslims,” according to boosters at a New Hampshire love-in shown on this clip from the Guardian. Notes one staunch supporter, “These people are very dedicated ... very smart in their own way,” and it takes America’s Mayor to win what Giuliani calls the “Islamic terrorist war” at hand.
What if former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani wasn’t the hero everybody thought? What if, like Bush, Giuliani had ignored myriad pre-9/11 warnings about terrorism? What if he thus left the city ill-prepared to respond to such a disaster? That’s the provocative thesis of a new book written by two top-flight investigative journalists.
