Honestly i feel that rudy is a great leader , i dont feel that he is presidential timber level of leader. He did a journymans job being on the forefront and keeping us up opn the wtc 911 thing . kudos to him ... howeaver he does not agree with me on too many issues and i wont support him for prez .. now if he gets it i will support him , the same as bush , clinton , or even carter .. our setting prez must be supported imho .
I'm leaning more towards Thompson (we're supposed to know soon), or Gingrinch (if he runs)...so many choices...so many zero's...
Say, what you will.
I'm not voting for him, but I'll bet you he becomes our next President.
Look for a July the 4th announcement. Here is the smart reasoning for the delay. Seems he approached a financial guy some months ago and asked what it would take money-wise for him to start campaigning immediately. The answer? 100 MILLION DOLLARS. But waiting till the 4th of July suddenly cuts that in HALF and he gets tons of free publicity on the speculation factor. Donations start to slack for the others with the speculation. This is one smart dude and his advisors helped Reagan win (some of them, anyway).
The Republicans are hungry for a real conservative. Thompson is the next Reagan. I'll bet he is giving the rest of the field a case of the heebie jeebies. Good.
This goes to show that polititions will say any thing to get elected.
He has already set up his "testing the waters" committee and can legally start raising money.
I'm getting giddy just thinking that he has a shot to be our next President.
Hannity gave one of his "stand on your principals" lectures today--I emailed him and asked how his principals involved slobbering over Rudy like he does. Standing on your principals, to me, is voting for the guy who supports your principals, win or lose. The vote that is "thrown away" is the vote for someone you don't believe in. I am hoping for a conservative independent. Rudy supported Bloomberg. 'nuf said.
