My candidate for President has jumped out to an early lead. I am not a true social Conservative. However, these are special times and these times call for a leader and a man of action. We are a country at war and we are divided. The issues like gay marriage and abortion should be secondary to most of you. The reality is that Newt has no chance and I do not desire a Goldwater style debacle.

Unlike Hillary, McCain or Newt Rudy ran a huge city that is larger than many states. He has had to deal with entrentched unions and nearly 100% hostile media in NYC and local city council. Rudy came into the mayoralty in a city in decline. David Dinkins was a fine man with a good heart swept into office by the Bensonhurst saga. The three day pogrom in Crown Heights was his Waterloo. Charles Rangel and all of the cities Black politicians let Dinkins drown. Dinkins was not a leader and did not know how to react to a crisis. Dinkins thought racial arsonists like Sonny Carson and Al Sharpton were people who could be engaged. Dinkins appointed dreadful people around him like Out of town Lee Brown and Laura "Pink Couch" Blackburne. Rudy's can do attitude turned the city around. On 9-11 he showed his leadership to the nation and the world.

On the interview front I want to tip my hat to author Stephen Schwartz. Many of us are under the delusion that wanton deaths caused by Communism were a product of its Russian origins. Obviously this must come as great news to the people of Albania and Yugoslavia where the parties were free of hegemony. In later years Romania also was free of the orbit and the suffering was just as bad if not worse than the Soviet Union.

I have been reading the chapters of the Black book to brush up on Romania. I do prepare for interviews and I learned quite a bit about Romanian history. This interview will be educational and fun on many levels.

My interview policy is that anyone with a blog or well known to me from other forums such as Bad Eagle, Moonbar Central, FPM can ask for an interview. Those of you who wish a second interview can do so as well. I will not grant interviews to banned bloggers such as John Brown, Gertrude and Uptown. I may also ask some to consider an interview at Florian's site. Florians skill has improved markedly and I would like to see him interview an AC or Freedomnow. I interviewed both of them in my early days and did not do as well as they deserved. I have interviewed far left types such as the Duck and one of my favorites Rob the dirty liberal. When I set up an interview I am functioning as a host and a good host does not bludgeon his guests.

I'm having trouble deciding what I'd really like to see happen - a President Guiliani, or having my gonads removed with a cheese grater.

On the plus side, the cheese grater option keeps Guiliani out of the White House...

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Just because the Democrats never run serious or competent candidates doesn't mean the GOP has to emulate them.

Mr. Ducky said...

Well Beak, the New York Post (ok, so it's a Murdoch paper and questionable) noted that Hillary was out polling Giuliani in the City.

Doesn't much matter what you run Beak. I actually hope he runs and the ads featuring his slut and his relationship with Bernie Kerik start running. They'll punch his face in.

Robert Bayn said...

Rudy, Rudy, Rudy!

Ducky

Do not be so sure the polls are accurate. Lets see Kerik was a genuinely competant man who was a hero. I'll take Kerik over Reno and Albright and Burglar. By the way how many pardons did Hugh Rodham sell. As far as sluts Bill Clinton is the expert on that subject.

C'mon Ducky sing us a chorus of Blue Stained Dress.

Judy Nathan is a plus as first lady.

A party with ideas would tackle Guiliani's lack of depth on geopolitical / geostrategic matters, which is why the Republican primaries will chew Guiliani up and be rid of him long before he's Doled out to another Clinton.

beakerkin said...

You under estimate the skill of Rudy who is better versed in foreign affairs than Hillary or Mc Cain. Kerik certainly is a smaller problem than Hugh Rodham, Whitewater or Filegate.

Always On Watch Two said...

I know a lot of Republicans who criticize Guiliani as not conservative enough, and several who would vote for him.

The 2008 RNC should be quite something, but I expect the field to narrow down some before then.

Duck,
And the candidate of your choice is _________________?

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Beakerkin,

Would you vote for Colin Powell over Guiliani?

Why or why not?

(I wouldn't vote for either one)

beakerkin said...

Mr B

I like the classic avatar.

In my opinion Rudy is a better leader.

kuhnkat said...

Here is an interview where Rudy supports Strong Border Security and a guest worker program.

http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblogs/TWSFP/2006/08/rudy_on_immigration.html

I would only vote for Rudy if he is the only thing between the Presidency and a Democrat!!! You know, why I voted for Bush!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

beakerkin said...

Kukhkat

We allready have a guest worker program. The H1b section is a defacto guest worker program.

Mr. Ducky said...

AOW, the candidate of choice would be Wes Clarke but he will probably not run, neither will Russ Feingold.

It's early and I do believe that environmental issues will come to the fore and prompt a Gore run.

On the R side .... McCain is finished. Bush is dragging him down and the little whore deserves no less, Giuliani would be a good bet if getting rid of squegee men were a national priority and Governor Olympics (Romney) hasn't heard that the neocon movement is finished and being kicked to the curb.
Best thing you could do is run Chuck Hegel.

American Crusader said...

Rudy as a lot to overcome if he is to win the Republican nomination. Well over 50% of the Republican Party is pro-life and Rudy is obviously pro-choice.
Barry Goldwater stated that abortion shouldn't be a Republican issue but it is.

beakerkin said...

Ducky

The Squeege men have been teaching in MIT and DePaul.

Wesley Clarke tool of the Clintonistas how quiant.

beakerkin said...

AC

Would you be interested in siting for an interview at Florian's site. I interviewed you early in the history of the segment and did not do an exemplarary job.

Florian has been improving in this area and would do an excellent job.

KuhnKat,

Yep, yep.

Elmer's Brother said...

steve your avatar went from a dog's butt with sunglasses on to a horse's ass with sunglasses on...

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

I'm pro-life but I don't think ending abortion should be a top-down solution or priority from the Presidency.

Just overturn Roe v. Wade with our present level of scientific understanding, and return the issue to the individual state legislatures to decide.

No, my main concern is if the Presidential candidate understands that the United States of America is a battleground in the war on terrorism and will be as long as Islamofascism is not confronted with the will, force, and determination to see it destroyed.

So far as I've seen, the only potential candidate that seems to understand this is Newt Gingrich. Tom Tancredo to a lesser, but intriguing degree.

Oh, and me, if my gag candidacy picks up steam come primary season. ;^P

Warren said...

Rudy certainly couldn't be any worse than GWB!

I listened to Rudy's interview with Hannity, I'd certainly vote for him before McCain.

Its still real early in the race, anything can happen.

I'd prefer Newt, he's by far the brightest and the closest thing to a Regan Republican.

Wes Clark!!!! ROTFLOL!!

The guys a mental midget and a martinet. Besides, the Clintons aren't going to let him run.

Mr. Beamish the Kakistocrat said...

Does Wesley Clark still have his buddy Ratko Mladic's hat?

kuhnkat said...

Beakerkin said:

"We allready have a guest worker program. The H1b section is a defacto guest worker program."

I agree. So why does Mayor Giuliani think we NEED a Guest Worker program? Other than to appease a couple of voting blocks and large Contributors??

I would also question his decision to take the PRACTICAL route and do NOTHING about illegals in the city. That is, if you describe guaranteeing full services to them and their children as doing NOTHING!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Hehehe.

Steve Harkonnen said...

Ouch, AOW. That hurt!

Note to Ducky: If you don't enjoy my latest post, you are artistically and musically dead.

Farmer John said...

You may accuse mr. ducky of many things, but "artistically dead" is certainly NOT one of them. There is some great modern art, and ducky taught me quite a bit about it. It's "light years" ahead of beyond Rembrandt... and takes a classical education to better appreciate... much in the same vein as Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516) and Giotto (1267-1367) were in the "avante garde" of their own times.

Farmer John said...

What surprises me most about me. ducky is that he enjoys both the surrealism of communism AND the nihilism of Marcusian anarchism. But then maybe he sees the underlying cycle... real (today)...surreal (today's dream of tomorrow)... anarchy (tool to tear down the now)... future (yesterday's surreal become tomorrow's real).

Farmer John said...

mr. ducky's approach is "holistic".

from the Jowett summary of Plato's, "Statesman"

Thus we have drawn several distinctions, but as yet have not distinguished the weaving of garments from the kindred and co operative arts. For the first process to which the material is subjected is the opposite of weaving--I mean carding. And the art of carding, and the whole art of the fuller and the mender, are concerned with the treatment and production of clothes, as well as the art of weaving. Again, there are the arts which make the weaver's tools. And if we say that the weaver's art is the greatest and noblest of those which have to do with woollen garments,-- this, although true, is not sufficiently distinct; because these other arts require to be first cleared away. Let us proceed, then, by regular steps: --There are causal or principal, and co-operative or subordinate arts. To the causal class belong the arts of washing and mending, of carding and spinning the threads, and the other arts of working in wool; these are chiefly of two kinds, falling under the two great categories of composition and division. Carding is of the latter sort. But our concern is chiefly with that part of the art of wool-working which composes, and of which one kind twists and the other interlaces the threads, whether the firmer texture of the warp or the looser texture of the woof. These are adapted to each other, and the orderly composition of them forms a woollen garment. And the art which presides over these operations is the art of weaving.

Farmer John said...

me... I'm more into the business of washing and mending.

Elmer's Brother said...

duhkkky artistically dead...nahhhh...morally...well

Farmer John said...

I think I need to buy me some shades...

Steve Harkonnen said...

Rudy would make for a truly outstanding president, providing he does not partake in the following:

1. "Statesmanship"
2. Appeasement
3. Apologetics
4. Tolerance
5. "Islam is a religion of peace"
crap

The above points are all about Bush.

Sadly, even Mitt Romney barely comes to my standards as indicated above, yet he is the one I would be voting for.

McCain? What the hell is that, anyway? He is a RINO - even bigger of a RINO than Senator Warner of Virginia.

Steve Harkonnen said...

FJ, you can have mine.

Just don't take away my goatee.

Ducky's a cool guy. He has the art stuff down pat, I am sure, but what about Cliff McReynolds' work?

Farmer John said...

Well my 2 minute "blink" look says it's crap. I can read a Dali. I can't read a McReynolds.

tazzmax said...

Hey, with all due respect to Beak and others, I'll have to side with KK.
The ONLY reason I'd vote for Rudy, would be because he was the only choice other than a demon-rat!

Then, I'm not sure I'd even do it then,.....I'm sick and tired of the republican partys' wishy-washy ways,.....in other words, it's the same "ole" shit over again, with the "good ole boys" still in control.
As far as I'm concerned, the party has strayed away from its' conservative roots and that's why we are in the shape we are now.
I don't want another GWB,....ever.
My call is for Duncan Hunter or Tancredo, and that's who I will support, either one of them, and I know they are a long shot, but they have a couple of years to get name recog.
I don't trust Newtie because he's an illegal immigrant lover and he made "kissy kissy" with Hitlery about univ. health care!

Bottom line folks, all the rest are RINOs,...no more of those bastards for me,.....let "em" go to the demon-rats!

I think the "Quacker" would vote for Hitlery.
