Republican presidential hopeful, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani shakes hands during a campaign stop at the Red Arrow Diner in Manchester, N.H., Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2007.

Giuliani Assails Clinton

Republican Rudy Giuliani compared Hillary Rodham Clinton to 1972 Democratic nominee George McGovern on Wednesday and chided his rival for adding a Southern lilt to her voice as he intensified his criticism.

Positioning himself as the one Republican able to thwart another Clinton presidency, Giuliani lambasted Clinton’s recent comments about giving a $5,000 savings bond to every U.S.-born baby.

“It’s interesting that Hillary is taking something from the George McGovern playbook,” Giuliani said in Manchester, N.H., likening her idea to the former South Dakota senator’s proposal to send $1,000 to every U.S. resident.

Without naming Clinton, Giuliani also alluded to an appearance this past spring in Selma, Ala., in which she slipped into what sounded like a Southern accent before a largely black audience.

Asked by reporters whether he can win religious conservative votes, Giuliani said: “I don’t have a different program for one group or another. I don’t have a different accent for different parts of the country.”

Mayor Giuliani has it RIGHT on both accounts.

Flap wrote about the McGovern give-away that Hillary copied in the context of her socialized medicine scheme, Hillary Care 2.0.

But, Mr. Mayor, Flap is confused on the southern lilt to her accent. Do you mean this one?

The Clinton response:

Clinton spokesman Phil Singer responded: “It’s unfortunate that the mayor’s entire campaign is premised on attacking others instead of talking about what he would do if elected.”

Right……..

By the way, Mayor Giuliani started a new radio ad in New Hampshire today where he is within the margin of error for the lead for the GOP nomination. Rudy leads most, if not all, national GOP polls.

The audio link for the ad, Tested, is here.
