Rudy Giuliani Watch: Giuliani Supports Iraq Troop SURGE


Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani makes a point as he speaks with reporters in New London, Conn., Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2007. Giuliani was speaking about safety considerations in regard to the proposed construction of a liquid natural gas facility in the middle of Long Island Sound between Connecticut and New York state. Giuliani’s security firm has been hired to study the situation. From left are: Tom von Essen, Richard Sheirer and Giuliani. Von Essen and Sheirer are associates of Giuliani’s.

The Hotline (Via The Corner): Rudy Supports The Troop Increase

Ex-NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani released this paper statement tonight on the president’s Iraq speech:

“Success or failure in Iraq is not a matter of partisan politics but a matter of national security. All Americans should be hoping, praying and offering constructive advice for the success of our troops in Iraq and for those Iraqis seeking to create a stable and decent government. In that spirit, I support the President’s increase in troops. Even more importantly – I support the change in strategy – the focus on security and the emphasis on a political and economic solution as being even more important than a military solution.I would add to it a heavy emphasis on measuring results and having the flexibility of adapting our strategy to make certain we restore security as quickly as possible.

We must not wait for a year or more to measure the success of our strategy but must develop a system to do so monthly weekly even daily so we give our troops the necessary support to succeed.”

But, guess what?

Hillary Clinton opposes the increase in troops. And so does Barack.

What a surprise…….

Flap caught the Mayor on Fox News after President Bush’s speech last night and he looked very presidential. Rudy made his points clearly and distinctly without any hesitation.

A LEADER speaking?

You betcha…….

Giuliani will EAT Hillary alive in any debate…..

  1. Even Oliver North is against Iraq ’surge’

    Do you think President Bush could be doing the “surge” just to hold off a civil war till he leaves office?

    DP-Virginia is home to three gallant, patriotic men with much in common. They are all three ex-Marines. They are all three highly decorated Vietnam veterans. They all sought at one time or another to be our junior senator. One lost his bid, another won his, and the third both won and lost. Our state can be proud of all three, and grateful for their service to our country.

    I refer, of course, to Chuck Robb, Jim Webb and Oliver North. Strange bedfellows, nicht wahr? One may challenge any suggestion that the similarities I cited can withstand the drastically divergent political paths they have trodden since Vietnam. Before Wednesday night, I would agree, they had nothing in common. Now, it appears, George Bush has given them common cause.

    North writes, “Not one of the soldiers, sailors, airmen, Guardsmen or Marines I interviewed told me that they wanted more U.S. boots on the ground. In fact, nearly all expressed just the opposite: ‘We don’t need more American troops, we need more Iraqi troops,’ was a common refrain. They are right.”

  2. John,

    Not our call or theirs. It is the President’s call. If it is not successful – the entire change of strategy, then there will be a change.

    You have to cut the President some slack and give his new plan six months.

    I cut and past my reply since you cut and pasted your question.
