    Rudy who?

    Oh you mean, 9iu11iani. I'm sorry...did he say something that wasn't '9/11' or 'Will you marry me?'?

    WATCHING JOHN SLAPPING RUDY'S BACK AND PRAISING RUDY FOR BEING A TRUE "AMERICAN HERO "CAUSES ME SOME CONCERN ABOUT JOHN'S ABILITY TO BE REALLY HONEST WITH US OR HIMSELF.

    I hope that who ever is elected will be very brave and try to stop the continuing looting of this country by the international bankers and their surrogates, such as some politicians and lobbyists. This country has already been looted by the international bankers to the point that we are on the verge of bankruptcy, which is why most Americans are suffering in the "richest" country in the world. Unless a candidate is committed to returning the wealth to the Amercan people, it doesn't matter who wins the Presidency, because it will just be a caretaker position. What a sad end to a once mighty United States of America.

    I think Rudy is a good endorsment. All of the liberal New Yorkers have to admit that the city is better because of him. I've heard this from New Yorkers themselves.

    It sounds like "the kiss of death" to me. Just goes to show that politics is a place for strange bedfellows. It also shows John McCain is not worthy of my vote for deciding to get close to a dirt bag like Giuliani. McCain ALREADY mentioned 9/11 while receiving the endorsement. Goes to show what his motives are and it's not for bringing sanity to The Executive Branch. Is there ANYBODY out there worth our vote?

    Ron Paul is definitely worthy of our vote. All his positions come from the United States Constitution. They are American ideas. The ideas of liberty.

    Did anyone truly think Guiltiani has a chance at a candidacy? He is the most amoral of the bunch we've seen during this election cycle. No way would this opportunistic sob have won the nomination....and I've heard that from New Yorkers, Kissimmee Paul. Just goes to show that New York is a diverse state, just like any other state,whether the media would have you believe it or not.
