Rudy Giuliani Watch: Rudy is Selling Competence, Not Ideology

Cross Posted from the FullosseousFlap's Dental Blog


Republican presidential candidate and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani hands back an autographed campaign poster to the crowd after a rally at Valley High School in West Des Moines, Iowa, April 3, 2007.

Politico: Rudy Giuliani Is Delighted To Oblige

Rudy Giuliani will hold your baby, hug your dog, autograph your T-shirt and blow you a kiss. All in the space of 15 minutes.
I watch him do these things as he makes his way down Market Street in Charleston’s famed Historic District, which on this bright and warm spring day is packed with tourists.

They call his name — “Rudy! Rudy! Over here, Rudy!” — and take his picture and, though often lacking both paper and pen (he will provide both), they ask for his autograph.

He is glad to oblige. He is delighted to oblige. Thus far in the 2008 presidential race, Giuliani has opened up a clear enthusiasm gap. He actually seems to enjoy campaigning. (Even if he is faking it, most of the other candidates aren’t even bothering to do that.)

Roger Simon is absolutely correct.

Flap has covered and videoed Rudy twice in California public campaign events and his enthusiasm is contagious. He WANTS to be the PEOPLE”S PRESIDENT.

Flap has seen many campaigns and politicians. He has seen the phoneys, the plastic candidates who are out for themselves. This is NOT Rudy.

Look at these videos taken in Iowa by Flap’s friend Kavon Nikrad over at

And finally:

Would you say that Rudy knows how to press the flesh and campaign among the people? Would you say these Iowa folks are enthusiastic for his candidacy?

Yes, on both.

Giuliani is selling competence, not ideology. He ran America’s largest city for eight years, and now he is ready to run America. That is his message.

Indeed he is.

Giuliani drops to one knee on the sidewalk and hugs a mixed collie named Maya as her owner snaps a picture of the two of them.

Then a young woman comes up to Giuliani and asks him to autograph the T-shirt she is wearing. Giuliani turns her around and signs the back of it. (He is no fool.)

Larry Khert, 36, of Suffolk County, Long Island; his wife, Marsha; and their three children, Larry III, Jake and Paige, stand on Market Street and watch Giuliani pass by.

“He is great,” says Khert, a registered Republican. “I don’t think the Democrats have anybody to run against him. He is really good in a crisis, and we are kind of in a crisis, aren’t we?”

But do you think he is a real conservative? I ask him.

“I don’t think we are looking for a real conservative Republican president,” Khert says. “We got one now. And how is that working out?”

Stay tuned for the Giuliani campaign to come to your state. But, arrive early - there will be a crowd.

Rudy not a phony? That's easily debated. Visit Hello Rudy

Your ideology is your world view and Rudy's is skewed. I was hurt by his comments that his broken marriages made him a better person. What about the kids? What about us? Maybe I should start a web site productsofdivorce against rudy.

I have to laugh at the comments of hm and Potter Stewart.

The American people are more broad-minded than people think. Reagan was divorced, he happened to be Jane Wyman's third husband. His daughter Maureen was married three times. His son Michael was divorced. His wife Nancy was the product of a broker home. The Reagan kids were estranged from their parents.

Bill Clinton was the biggest womanizer in the White House since JFK.

Reagan, Clinton, and JFK are the three most popular Presidents in recent times.

The point is, HM and Potter Stewart, the American people look at accomplishments not bedmates.

The New Orleans Nike Roshe Run Saints played their best game of the season, taking down the Los Angeles Rams, 49-21. It was another day at the office for the offense, while Jared Goff fell apart in the second half despite a strong start.

The Saints move to 5-6, but the Atlanta louboutin outlet Falcons took down the NFL Jerseys Arizona Cardinals to move to 7-4. The Washington Redskins loss Nike Air Max 90 moved them to 6-4-1, giving the Saints a bit of hope in catching up christian louboutin uk to them.
