The Obligatory Pro-Rudy Post

Former N.Y. mayor and Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani walks from the podium after speaking during a campaign stop in Port Saint Lucie, Fla.

I'm leaning toward Romney. If Florida does not go to the Rude One, then I'm casting my absentee for the Mitt


And....he's gone!

Today is make-it-or-break-it-day for Rudy, the best I can tell.

Romney is too slick for me. I liked him a lot a first, however.

When it comes to Romney or McCain, I'm between a rock and a hard place. I can't tell which I prefer less.

Come November, I'll hold my nose and cast my ballot. I never miss an opportunity to vote.

Glad to hear you have sort of made up your mind, Wordsmith. Tonight should be interesting. The political pundits all seem to believe Rudy doesn't have a chance, but no one can ever really predict these things. Who knows?

I'm the total opposite of Always. At first I felt Rudy to charming and slick, but upon reflection, he's an extremely good speaker. Even though some resent the fact that he's so rich, it puts him in a position where he doesn't have to agree to pork barrel projects in order to get the funds to run his campaign. His family values are solid, and of course that's a plus. Unlike some, I don't care diddly-squat about his being a Mormon. At any rate, I'm glad Always will vote Republican in spite of who wins the primary, and so shall I, but of course you already know that. :)

I doubt if I would vote if Ron Paul won, and thank goodness he doesn't stand a chance. He'd do just as much damage to this country as any Democrat!

Rudy shot himself in the foot when he pulled out of every contest before Florida. He campaigned hard for a year and then when Noveber came around and he HAD to campaign he took a nap.

I like , " Always, " and between the rock and hard place. I will now wait for the nominee and support the GOP.

Like Gayle, thank God, Paul is toast!

Looks like Rudy will be dropping out and will endorse McCain. I really wanted to vote for him in my primary, but, such is life.

Now I have to figure out who can beat Hillary - McCain or Romney.

Word: Your a senstive and compassionate blogger who always considers the feelings of your readers.

So, I hope you will consider removing that Rudy photo from your post.

He is set to make the the penultimate betrayal to all of us who supported his early candidacy and endorse McCain.

That will assure that we go down to another defeat in November, or be saddled with a president who could care less what we think.

Ah, Word, I thought you were on the Straight Talk!

Giuliani's out, and Romney's not far behind!!

no, mike, I will not. "Penultimate betrayal"?! Like how people looked at Duncan Hunter as a "staunch and flawless conservative" and were baffled by his endorsement of every conservative blogger's favorite punching bag, Huckabee? Or how if Fred Thompson was actually brave enough to publically endorse anyone, it looks like he'd lean toward endorsing McCain as well?

This is insane! The conservative base is imploding, and I say people need to start getting a grip.

Quit demonizing one another!

I've had a hard time mustering any enthusiasm for any of these candidates. Frankly, I'm pretty resigned to the reality that Obama will probably win the presidency. I'll do my best to keep that from happening; but I don't find this political infighting particularly helpful. It goes beyond mere disagreement, into permanent self-damage.

I'm sick of the petty attacks between the presidential candidates, which makes them look small and insecure, to me; and I'm sick of the mean-spirited bickering amongst conservatives.

I just hope Romney wins the nomination he's the best of all these men. I would have voted for Rudy if he won, he's a good guy and great leader. I think the democrats and the class warfare they have promoted all these years has integrated itself into some of the Republican candidates though.

After I pick myself up from having my meltdown I'm going to be picking up speed for Romney. I'm going to contact the campaign tomorrow to see if they'll have one of their guys on the radio show.
