Me, Myself, and Giuliani

My mom is a democrat; my dad, independent; my boyfriend, a republican, so where does this leave me. I'm right in the middle, moderate, central, and I'm happy here. I don't vote based on Party preference or Party discrepancy, I vote based purely on facts, on the issue itself. This is why I am so fond of Rudy Giuliani, he is a republican, but socially he is not a strict constitutionalist. He looks at all aspects of an issue and then upholds what he believes, regardless of what his party expects. This has caused some problems as people speculate that he is not republican enough to be the republican party leader, but I very adamantly disagree. I feel he is that much stronger, able to stand behind his opinions and decisions even if it may cost him a few votes. I admire this man, and his ability to lead. I feel that Rudy Giuliani will make an amazing president, changing the world for the better. Yay for Rudy!

Unfruitful Attempts

It's dumb, but it's official, Republican John McCain has officially launched his 2008 campaign for president.

He is far behind New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who leads the Republican presidential field in public-opinion polls, already. Is it wise for him to continue running?? I think not!! Too old, too Bush-like, too passive, and too uncertain, McCain has no chance!

McCain squints to try to see Giuliani so far ahead of him.

McCain is inappropriate!

I urge you all to read this short but interesting article.;_ylt=Agpo7u8RLkF4SzXXqdb3gDppu6cv

It talks about McCain’s inappropriate humor. He jokes about the War in Iraq, jokes about bomb devices. When asked to apologize he declines. "When I was in combat and tough situations we used humor all the time, and all I can say to Murtha and others is lighten up and get a life."

The article talks about how "McCain had a similar response last week to criticism of his joking rendition at a campaign appearance in South Carolina of the opening lyrics of the Beach Boys rock classic "Barbara Ann," calling the tune "Bomb Iran" and changing the words to "bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, anyway, ah ..."

To clear a few things up

You may have heard it, know it's untrue.

From FOX news:

"Washington woke up to morning headlines that Rudy Giuliani predicted a "new 9-11" if a Democrat wins the presidency in 2008. Barack Obama responded that Giuliani has "taken the politics of fear to a new low." John Edwards said Giuliani's comments were "divisive and plain wrong." And Hillary Clinton called it "political rhetoric" that would not lessen the threat of terrorism.

The problem is Giuliani never said what the headlines claimed. It all started with a story in The Politico newspaper, which contained not a single quote to support its lead and headline. But it got picked up elsewhere nonetheless.

What Giuliani actually did say is what he has been saying for weeks, that Democrats would play defense instead of offense in the War on Terror, the same approach tried back before 9/11.

Partial-birth abortions...not for rudy!


"HENNIKER, N.H. -- Republican presidential contender Rudy Giuliani defended his positions on a late-term abortion procedure and gun control Tuesday as he faced skeptical GOP voters who questioned his sincerity.

"I don't think there's an inconsistency," the former New York City mayor said of his long-standing support of abortion rights and his affirmation last week of the Supreme Court's decision to uphold a ban on what critics call partial-birth abortion, a measure he opposed in the past."

And there isn't. Giuliani has made his opinions on the matter quite clear, and they have remained the same. The press keeps questioning him, because they feel that due to much controversy based on his Republican roots, that he should be changing his mind to get the GOP votes. However, like a good leader, he is staying strong to what he believes.
He does not favor abortions. He is pr0-choice. He is completely against partial-birth abortions.
Memorize this, it won't change.

Clinton vs Giuliani

A short but sweet little excerpt for your reading pleasure:

"A new Quinnipiac University poll of critical swing states shows that if the 2008 election were held today, Rudy Giuliani would beat Hillary Clinton in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. That's a switch for Ohio, where Giuliani leads Clinton 46 percent to 41 percent. In March, Clinton led Giuliani, 46 percent to 43 percent, in Ohio. "

Not only is he leading the Republican's, he's leading the whole pack!!

A Look At The Polls



Giuliani 33%

McCain 22%

Thompson 17%

Romney 12%

Giuliani is STILL leading the pack! Way to go Rudy!!

Get over it America... and move on!!

So this is my final statement on Giuliani's family life vs. the US.
I know many people who are outraged that employers are are checking facebook, and myspace pages before hiring them. Is this any different? It appears that they are getting mad because they feel that their personal lives won't effect their professional, and that the employers have no right, and shouldn't be basing their ground for hiring on such websites that have the potential employees personal information on it. Can we say DOUBLE STANDARDS?!?!

In filling out a college application you admit your grades, SAT scores, awards and experience's.
The dean oh Harvard is not going to do a background check to find out what happened on the night of your senior prom.
How many students drink underage, yet still get straight As?

The point I'm trying to make is that there is a seperation between personal life and professional. American lifestyles are based on promoting your attributes, and achievements, second chances, and being able to let loose and have fun in a comfortable environment. I feel as life American's are much quicker to judge than be judged. In a situation such as Giuliani's, where every skeleton is brought out of the closet, and every past issue re-evaluated, he is doing excellent. If his personal divorces are the primary attack from others, then he is pretty good off.
The public needs to quit being hypocritical, and realize that Giuliani is a brilliant man, more than capable of being president, and that his personal life should not even be a minor factor in the 2008 presidential campaign.

Donna Hanover- Wife #2 Donna Hanover

Rudy about Donna: "You know how there are certain bells people can ring of yours?" Giuliani told PEOPLE in 1994. "Donna rang every single one of mine." ... Recalls Hanover's friend Reese Schonfeld: "I would have bet it was one of the happier marriages I had ever known. If anything, he worshiped her more than she did him."
Source: People Weekly, May 29, 2000 page 50.

NEW YORK (CNN) -- New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani announced Wednesday that he is seeking a separation agreement from his wife, actress Donna Hanover, possibly bringing to a close a tumultuous marriage that has been consistently buffeted by the rigors of public life and rumors of strife.

Giuliani and his wife Donna Hanover had been married for 16 years, another long marriage for Americans, yet things unfortunately came to an end. On the matter Giuliani stated that,
"For quite some time it's probably been apparent that Donna and I lead in many ways independent and separate lives." I personally do not see this as a sign or message that Giuliani is not fit to run the country. This is his personal life, and he's taking care of it on his own.

Wife #1- Regina S. Peruggi

Rudy's first wife was Regina S. Peruggi, they were married on October 26, 1968, until 1982. Regina was a stand up woman, she was a drug abuse counselor, President of the Central Park Conservancy, president of several colleges in New York, and even named a New York State Senate Woman of Distinction.
The fact of the matter is, Rudy did well. They were married for quite some time, giving things a real go. As American's are familiar with, things don't always work out. So get off Rudy's back! The point is, they were a power couple, and made things work for longer than most Americans have been together. NOT THAT IT MATTERS! His personal life does not dictate who he will be in the Oval Office.


I know many speculate on how Rudy does not hold the family values that America feels it needs. In order to clear him from this attack, I have two things to say.
1. View this.... yeah, WHAT NOW, thats what I thought!

2. I was watching Scrubs the other night and heard a quote that I feel greatly embodies this whole controversy. (Please try to look past the fact that it came from Scrubs, and instead see it for what it is.)
A doctor was talking with a resident about the difference between professionalism and personal issues. He said "Do you think I'm a good teacher?" She says YES. Then he goes on to say, What if I told you that when I go home I love to put on a nice flowing dress, go out to Club FuFu, and show myself off. Would that make me any less of a teacher?
The answer is NO. Giuliani's personal life should not matter, whether good or bad, what stands strong is his accomplishments and his goals. He does what he says, is honest and trustworthy, and can actually make a difference. America in general divorces running rampant, so what if a presidential candidate is part of that. You can't make two people stay in love, you can't make them stay together for ulterior motives. This is his personal life people, it's not WHO he is! The public is getting so strung up on this issue that it's causing them to look past the issues that really matter. He was mayor when this divorce was going on, yet he managed to clean up the city of New York anyways, obviously it didn't effect his work ethic. He is able to separate the two, too bad Americans aren't as mature.
