Rudy “Not Endorsed”

Published by at 10:48 am under 2008 Elections,All General Discussions

Boy, I sure hope Rudy wins FL (or shows well) just so we can get more of his excellent political commercials. In this new ad (H/T Ed Morrissey) Rudy points out why not being endorsed is a good thing:

The fact is McCain is trying to show DC-insider support with his Crist and Martinez endorsements, because he is weakest with the establishment everyone wants to change. Giuliani neatly highlights this fact by making a liability a strength. Rudy can best the Dems in my opinion. Let’s see if FL also feels the same way tomorrow. Rudy seems very calm and up beat (while McCain and Romney are angry and sniping), which could mean nothing – and could mean a lot. FL is playing king-maker tomorrow for the GOP. It will be interesting to see.

    I still find it interesting the McCain who has claimed to have revised his position on the comprehensive immigration issues has been endorsed by one of it’s strongest backers in Mel Martinez.

    A bit contrarian there at least.

    LOL! Why are you surprised the McCain is still for comprehensive immigration reform? He still supports the back taxes and fines (“amnesty”) and the strong borders (everybody does).

    Are the hypochondriacs fooled by their own diversionary rhetoric??? the border has nothing to do with the plight of the long term aliens already in country! How many times do we have to keep going around this before people get a clue? Close the barn door – keep the other horses out. But McCain is not changing his tune on what to do with those already in.

    Boy folks are gullible. Even I don’t but that!

    I know your “dog” is Rudy. But given he loses FL and drops out, I was wondering who you back next? or rather who would you rather see win FL — Romney or McCain? I was wondering because it seems you have strong dislike of both those candidates. Thanks.

    I guess I am just like all those disappointed Fredheads. At least Fred was ‘acceptable’ to one and all, unlike Rudy.

    Rudy would make a better President. He is soft spoken with a punch. The UN would hate him. The MSM would hate him. The terrorists would hate him. The Dems in Congress would really hate him. A man that never felt the urge to build himself up with a good ole BushBash. He did not feel the need to make excuses for his beliefs. He is likable with humor.

    This is a good ad and it’s too bad the Pundits and Far Right judged him unacceptable. They didn’t bad mouth him. Nope. Much worse. They immediately made him Invisible, even when he was polling high.

    Yep, we can thank Dobson and Bauer, et al for what has happened to Rudy.

    I am sick of them.

  6. MerlinOS2 says:


    I am just noting that McCain said that he had heard the American people and he would build the fence first and then consult on an immigration bill.

    Even you now are pointing out that is contrary to his current position.

    Simply noting a discrepancy, nothing more.

    I don’t think you can blame this on the pundits and the far right, if McCain could come back Rudy could have too. He just let it slip away.

    A few posts back you were complaining that McCAin was not prolife because he supported some embryonic stem cell research. Giulliani’s record on this is more liberal than McCain’s. Doesn’t that bother you?
