He should resign! He told us he would resign if he did this poorly. Do you remember that? Do you remember that he told us that if he couldn’t get employment above 6 percent, he wouldn’t run for a second term? He lied! He has been a disaster. The worst president for our economy in our lifetime. He doesn’t want a second term. He wants a second chance, because he screwed it up the first time.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani • Fulfilling to a T the role of campaign “attack dog” surrogate, while stumping for the Romney/Ryan ticket in Ohio today. It’s worth noting that we can’t find any indication that President Obama ever said he wouldn’t run for a second term if unemployment was above 6%. Indeed, this at any point since the 2007 financial collapse would’ve been a rather mad pledge for him to make. It’s likely Giuliani was speaking of Obama’s comments in 2009, that if he didn’t turn the economy around by 2012 his presidency would be a “one-term proposition,” but that’s not a pledge to resign, or not run, so much as a frank assessment of the public’s voting inclinations. In addition to the above denunciations, Giuliani cast attacks at the American consulate in Benghazi as being a result of “incompetence,” and said that with a president who was paying attention, we wouldn’t have to investigate what was “covered up” there. source

What do Rick Perry and Rudy Giuliani have in common?

  • 26% Rick Perry’s average support in GOP primary polls since announcing his candidacy; he’s now in the lead
  • 29% Rudy Giuliani’s average support in GOP primary polls at this point in 2007; he was then in the lead source

» Just a reminder of how difficult it is to predict the outcomes of presidential primaries  six months before Iowa. It’s also instructive to recall another Southern Republican who, four years ago, was seen as a savior by the GOP establishment. He announced his candidacy late in the game, and immediately vaulted to the top of the polls. That candidate was Fred Thompson.

Rumors swirl on possible Giuliani run, ‘cause someone has to
Run Rudy Run: You may have noticed a lot of nail-biting amongst establishment Republican figures in the last couple days, with the news that Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels wouldn’t be running causing a bit of an “oh my god, we don’t have many electable candidates here” sort of panic. But never fear, GOP, your knight in shining armor could be coming. Reports are swirling that Rudy Giuliani, seeking redemption for his disastrous 2008 campaign (record-setting for its waste and futility, as he spent over $50 million to net just one delegate), may throw his name into the ring once more. Said Rep. Peter King: “If he were to make the decision today, he would run.” source

Does Rudy have a shot at the Republican nomination?

  • unsurprisingNew Hampshire Republicans want Mitt Romney as their presidential nominee in 2012, according to a recent poll. It wasn’t a shock last time he won such a poll, and it’s not a shock now.
  • surprisingWho came in second place behind Romney? Why, none other than America’s Mayor himself, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani. His mere inclusion in the poll is almost as surprising as his placing. source

» But take this with a grain of salt: Encouraging as these results may be to Giuliani, he still finished thirty (30) points behind Romney, which is an awfully steep deficit to overcome. And New Hampshire’s not exactly a deep red state, so it’s expected that they’d favor a moderate like Giuliani over someone like Mike Huckabee (who tied with Tim Pawlenty for third)). Still, just about nobody in the media has been taking a potential Giuliani candidacy seriously, so this second place showing is, if nothing else, a surprise.

Dammit, Piers. How are we supposed to ignore this guy when he actually manages to get people to say things like this?
