Republican presidential hopeful, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, addresses a gathering at a full coffee house during a campaign stop in Hampstead, N.H., Sunday Dec. 23, 2007.

Rudy Giuliani campaigning today in New Hampshire again showed the love to Senator John McCain.

During a campaign stop in Hampstead, N.H. today, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said his Republican opponent, John McCain, R-Ariz., would make a “really good adviser.”

The former mayor was asked that since he did not have Washington experience like McCain, how would he navigate through the likely complicated dealings with Congress?

“John would be a really good adviser,’’ Giuliani said. “He’s a good friend. This campaign’s going to be over at some point, John is a friend now, he is going to remain a friend then.’’

Looking more exuberant than he has in recent days, Giuliani went on to praise McCain calling him “a hero of mine” for which he has great respect.

He went on to say while that McCain may have more experience in Washington, he had more executive experience.

“John has his assets, and strong points, and I have mine,’’ he said. “And I think that mine are that I’ve run a lot of things. I’ve been an executive. In government, out of government. I’ve had a chance to develop the things that you need to move large organizations. And to get large things done, and handle big crises and turn things around.”

The fact is that both of them on the GOP ticket will make a formidable team to defeat the Democrats. Both are balanced and experienced politicians.

Flap lays odds that when the GOP primary dust settles if either of them win the top spot – the other will be named the VP.

Stay tuned……

Mitt Romney’s flip-flops on abortion over many years, but even recently. American Right to Life Action exposes him! ARTLAction.com is a new 527 group, which is airing this video as a commercial in Iowa on FOXNews. This is their first ad.

American Right to Life Action, is running TV ads against Mitt Romney in Iowa on the Fox News Channel. This ad is DEADLY and POINTED on Mitt’s Flip-Flop on abortion.

Want to bet that McCain and Huckabee use this type of television ad against Romney in New Hampshire and South Carolina starting on the 26th?

Your bet would be well placed in the affirmative.

Representative Robert Filner D-California

Well, before the House of Representatives adjourned for the year the House Ethics Committee delivered a mild rebuke to California Democrat Representative Robert Filner.

The Committee on Standards of Official Conduct, which established an investigative subcommittee earlier this fall to look into an incident between the congressman and an airline employee, ruled that Filner “demonstrated poor judgment” when he got into an altercation with a United employee at Dulles airport over the summer.

Filner entered a so-called Alford plea to trespassing in November, days before he was scheduled to appear before a Virginia judge, meaning he acknowledged the evidence against him without officially admitting his guilt. He also wrote a letter apologizing to the airline employee and paid a $100 fine.

In light of those actions, the House ethics panel refrained from any further action.

The committee concluded, “Notwithstanding this determination, the investigative subcommittee agreed unanimously that Rep. Filner’s conduct demonstrated poor judgment on his part, and that he is responsible for creating a situation that implicated the reputation of the House of Representatives.”

Hell, if you or I would have assaulted an airport employee in this manner we would have been arrested, booked and sentenced to either jail, community service or both. But, Filner as a member of Congress gets away with a “slap on the wrist.”

No wonder the public has so little regard for the Congress – among other things, of course.

But, with the gerrymandered Congessional Districts in California, unless a well-heeled Democrat decides to challenge Filner next year in a primary election, he will be re-elected easily, despite being an asshole bully.

Flap agrees with Aron at Race42008. This race is wide open – 12% undecided.

More poll charts and graphs from the Boston Globe are here. 

However, it appears that John McCain with two endorsements by Boston area newspapers now has the momentum up while Mitt Romney and Rudy have the momentum down.

Stay tuned……..
