Giuliani? Are You Kidding Me? Never!

Many people have been disgruntled with they perceive to be a weak Republican presidential field. I am one of them.

I have been hoping that someone, even someone who has previously said no, might join the race and save it from the Legion of Boring. Someone pro-life. Someone conservative. A true believer.

And now the rumor is that a big name may jump into the race. Rudy Giuliani.

Boring never looked so good.

CBS's Jan Crawford Tweeted

Rudy is "very close" to jumping into the presidential race, Rep. Peter King says at a dinner in DC tonight
Gosh I hope not. I wish to make clear, and I hope that every pro-life conservative makes very clear, at the outset that I will NEVER EVER EVER vote for Rudy Giuliani.

As a Catholic, I could never support the man. As a conservative, I could never support the man. No way. No how. I would vote for Newt first, and that ain't never gonna happen.

I would take Paul Ryan (even though he would get creamed), I would take Jeb Bush. I would even, for kicks and giggles, take Saracudda. But never ever Rudy.

I suppose he figures with the field as weak as it is that Republican primary voters might overlook the fact that he is a liberal. Well not me.

I am this close to voting a third party as it is, Rudy gets the nod and I will never vote for him. And I do believe I am not alone.

Giuliani? Are you kidding me? Never!

Please, Patrick, tell us this was just satire...

What about Rick Santorum? What's his chances?

Megan said...

I really like Pawlenty so far!

Mary Ellen/Nunly said...

Amen! Although...if our only choice would be Rudy, I would vote for him over Obama. But please don't let it be Rudy!

I couldn't vote for Rudy or Newt. We are in big trouble if this is the best the Republican party can do.

Tito Edwards said...

I'm with you Patrick.

What is galling is that Elizabeth Scalia, aka The Anchoress, refuses to admit she made a mistake backing Giuliani for president in 2008.

I'd like Pawlenty better were he not a lapsed Catholic.

Blackrep said...

T-Paw!

But, given the choice, I would certainly pull the lever for Rudy rather than Obama. Newt would be more galling, because of his support of an open-fly zone...

...around women other than his wife. Badda bing!

It truly seems like we're getting the leaders we deserve, doesn't it?

Pawlenty has left the Catholic faith to join his wife's church--- But he is pro-life and has proved his conservatism-- He gets my vote---

I'm an indy Jeffersonian, but having been through this wash cycle many, many times already (can you say "Keyes, Buchanan....) I'm thus far impressed with, who else, Herman Cain!
I'd do a major PAY PER VIEW just to see/hear the Herminator reduce Mr. Teleprompter to putting his hands in his pockets, head bowed, and muttering, "Sorry dad, I'll go get a real job."

Ron Paul!

I would love to see a real journalist look back at past elections and quote all the opinion pieces about the lack of good candidates in years such as 1980, 1988, 200, etc. How many poeple who now lionize Reagan had no enthusiasm for him 1979? I could start with myself...

I am a front line pro-lifer - my wife and I having worked in The Gabriel Project. And I would vote for Guiliani if he is the one who could beat Obama. PRO-LIFE Conservatives can exert control over Rep. Presidents (e.g., Pres Bush and his attempt to nominate Harriet Miers). There will be no control over Obama if he wins in 2012.

If you vote 3rd party this election - Obama wins - and America is destroyed. PERIOD.

Anonymous said...

A vote for a 3rd party candidate is a vote for Obama, I repeat: A VOTE FOR OBAMA. Go ahead and try to justify it any way you want, but you will have voted for Obama. Chris in Maryland already said what I wanted to say, but I will reaffirm it. The Supreme Court is at stake. Any more young ultraliberal proabortionists on it, and you can forget overturning Roe v. Wade anytime in the next fifty years. And that is only the beginning of the damage that would be done. We conservative prolifers can not even consider or suggest a third party candidate as though it were a reasonable option.

Chris in Maryland said...

Just to prove the point of the wrong-headedness of voting 3rd party vs Rudy Guiliani, learn what just happened in the election in the 26th Congressional district in NY:

A mediocre democrat candidate (Ms. Hochul) took over a seat held over 50 yrs by a Rep. She got only a plurality (47%) of the votes, not a majority, getting mereley 1% more than Barack Obama (who lost to McCain in this district in 2008).

Democrats won only because a third-party candidate (self-proclaimed) tea partier Jack Davis—spent a reported $3 million to draw votes from the republican candidate. Davis got 9% of the vote—Democrats would never have won otherwise. Davis ran for the same seat in the last three elections as a Democrat. This year he ran as a populist conservative.

Get smart...or Obama wins in 2012
