(CNN) – Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani recalled having breakfast at the Peninsula Hotel in Midtown Manhattan on the morning of September 11, 2001, when he learned an airplane had struck the World Trade Center.

Washington (CNN) – With heightened terror alerts raised on the 10th anniversary weekend of 9/11, President Barack Obama and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called on America to remember its unity in the days after the attacks.
“They wanted to terrorize us, but, as Americans, we refuse to live in fear,” said Obama in his weekly address Saturday. “Yes we face a determined foe, and make no mistake-they will keep trying to hit us again. But as we are showing again this weekend, we remain vigilant. We’re doing everything in our power to protect our people. And no matter what comes our way, as a resilient nation, we will carry on.”

(CNN) – Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who's been mulling a White House bid all summer, said he would have a hard time winning the Republican nomination if he decided to run. But it's an idea he still hasn't ruled out.

(CNN) - Rudy Giuliani said he's uniquely qualified to be president given the economic turnaround in New York City over which he presided as mayor.

(CNN) - He may not agree with the vote in New York to legalize gay marriage, but former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said the Republican Party should butt out of the bedroom and stick to fiscal policy.
"I think the Republican Party would be well advised to get the heck out of people's bedrooms and let these things get decided by states," Giuliani said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." "We'd be a much more successful political party if we stuck to our economic, conservative roots."
(CNN) – Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he expects the power players in Washington to wait until the final hours of negotiations to strike a deal on the debt ceiling.
