Giuliani On The Verge Of Announcing His Presidential Campaign, Says New York Lawmaker

May 25, 2011 by  

Giuliani on the verge of announcing his Presidential campaign, says New York lawmakerFormer New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is seriously considering another run for the Presidency, according to Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.).

On May 23, King told The Washington Examiner that Giuliani has been quietly exploring campaign strategies for a potential White House bid. The former mayor unsuccessfully ran for the GOP nomination in 2008, which went to Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.).

King claimed that Giuliani has learned from his past political mishaps and is “very close” to announcing his candidacy for 2012.

“If he were to make the decision today, he would run,” said King, quoted by the media outlet.

A recent poll of New Hampshire voters revealed that Giuliani is among the favorites in the GOP field. The survey, which was conducted by WMUR and CNN, had Giuliani trailing former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.

However, he led former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.), former United States Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman and former Senator Rick Santorum (R-Penn.).

    Read this article and see if This “potential candidate” is another Great Statist!

    “It is how libertarians view freedom that befuddles and confuses, and sometimes even angers, American statists. They’re simply unable to comprehend how libertarians are able to honestly believe that Americans are not free. That’s because in the minds of American statists, it’s obvious that Americans are free. Everyone knows that the United States is a free country.

    The reason for this phenomenon is, again, that, while all of us are living within a statist box, most Americans have not been able to break out of the box, mentally speaking, and question and challenge the legitimacy of the statist box itself. Undoubtedly, that is in large part because of the powerful indoctrination that takes place in people’s formative years — a period in which their minds are molded so that they believe that the welfare state is, in fact, freedom. Thus, when a statist encounters a libertarian, who wants to bring freedom to America, the statist becomes confused, befuddled, and even angry because in his mind he’s already free, thanks to the welfare state.”

    I hope Bob doesnt mind me posting this. In fact I hope Bob reads the article himself, he might find it agreeable. :)

    Oh goodie another stink hole.

    The US reached a zero population growth in the mid 80’s our leaders increased their yearly appetite for immigration. The legal yearly immigration rate went from 100,000 to 1,000,000. From the years 2000 to 2010 our leader’s yearly appetite for legal immigration grew to 3,000,000. At present levels the US population will swell another 130 million to 442 million by 2040! This is a very conservative estimate. US immigration rate is the sole reason for overpopulation in the US today and tomorrow!

    It is irrational to think that any nation can save more than a hand full of people from overpopulated poorer nation. Especially when most refuse to change their life style and blame the Jones’s for their plight.
    It is irrational to call mom a Nazi A. hole for giving people a ride back home to keep her home from overpopulation. It is irrational to think that any single payer social program will work best. It is irrational to think that nations can tax its way out of poverty. It is irrational to believe that a power convinced that you have nowhere else to go will do your biding.

    No one is going to stand in their way the template to convince people that a rational person is a very sick or stupid SOB must be removed first. And only you can remove yours.

    People will not take in grandma, or their disabled neighbor long enough to break the social network of chains that separate us. It does not have to come to that, yet! The working class can be forced to plan for their life without a single payer plan. We must meet with our fellow citizens, listen and share ideas.

    A true Conservative and a true Liberal agree on one thing though for different reasons. Any single payer social program is a nutty idea! Now each believes that it’s not so nutty as long as their side is managing it.

    We can destroy the power by replacing them with citizens that can be immediately removed by citizens should they grow a greedy bone and never serve for a life time. We must take control ourselves. Please join with us at you might be able to click on my name. This will take you to my link page that links to, and

    Although I agree with both the other comments, what does this have to do with Giuliani? If he could do for the USA, what he did with NYC, our country could be back to the country we know and love. Go Rudy!

  • Carlucci

    Oh – fabulous. Pardon me while I puke. Rudy G. is just another big government RINO. Many people I know thought his East German Stasi-style tactics in NYC sucked. And don’t forget – first he was a federal prosecutor who went after Leona Helmsley, so he could make a name for himself. Say what you will about her, she was a very savvy business woman who provided a lot of jobs to New Yorkers.

      I totally agree with you Carlucci, a quazi Nazi is the term for him…He had people jailed for asking a legitimate question, I guess he is a hater of freedom of speech! ANYONE who questions him, he has his goons silence them, I don’t think we want him as another Obozo, our Liar in Chief!!! there would be vbery little if any difference!!

    Giuliani kept NYC together and running smoothly during and after the 9/11 attacks. If not for him, the city would’ve fallen into shambles. I know this first hand since it happened in my state. I’s vote for him as President. He’s the best I’ve seen offered in a long time.

  • Debbie

    I believe that if you’d listen to Conservative Republican Herman Cain, who announced his run for President only just last Saturday (5/21/11), just one(1) time you’d be wanting to hear more….
    I commend Giuliani for his response to 9/11!!!!!!!!!! But I don’t want him for my next president.

    • Robin from Arcadia, IN

      Debbie… My sentiments exactly!

    • Eric

      I agree. Herman Cain addresses the concerns many have voiced regarding his being Chairman of the Fed, auditing the Fed and his initial support of TARP in a tele-TownHall at this link-

      He discusses what I believe to be one of the most important factors and least discussed issues regarding health care, jobs/economy, and crime/terrorism/security – ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

      I lived in NYC. I saw what Giuliani did with that sh*thole of an island/city……..and I was impressed. I also supported him last go ’round, til he withdrew. However, I think we need a proven businessman/leader (not another career politician)…that will not comment on things he is unaware of just to make lip service. He, as successful businessmen do, will put into place people who have the ability to get the job done, and in accord to the Constitution.

      He also doesn’t use a hyphen to define his race.

      Raisin’ Cain 2012. “Let’s Get Real”


    Stay out of it Rudy, you too are to weak on the social issues and lean to far left. If you do not suport the party platform, talk and believe conservative fiscally and socially then you need to reconsider your position.

  • jopa

    I like Rudy. He has a sense of humor and some of the dresses he wore in the past were fabulous.After the first World Trade Center Bombing he decided to put NYCs Crisis management building in the WTC building Seven.That didn’t work out so good though.He may qualify for a township supervisor however.
