GOP front-runner Rudy Giuliani has new roots in New Hampshire, literally. As you can see, he and his wife, Judith, water the sapling given to them by backers Joseph and Augusta Petrone. They’re longtime Bushies who live on a prominent Dublin, N.H., property where former President Taft and Mark Twain planted trees. The couple say they won a promise from Rudy and Judith: to return and plant it if he wins the GOP nomination or presidency.

Thanks to US News for the catch.

Rudy Giuliani Watch: California Dreamin’ – Summer in the Inland Empire

Posted Posted in Giuliani Notes, President 2008, Rudy Giuliani

Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani reaches for 3-month-old Ethan Gaines, son of Coffee Depot owners Geof and Evelyn Gaines, during a stop Tuesday at Coffee Depot in Riverside.

When the California GOP a few years ago changed Republican Presidential convention delegate rules, they envisioned candidates campaigning in all or most of California’s numerous counties.

Who is the ONLY GOP candidate traveling from San Francisco to Fresno to Riverside and San Diego – Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Yesterday, the Giuliani campaign rolled into the Inland Empire.

During a brief stop Tuesday morning at Riverside’s Coffee Depot, Republican presidential contender Rudy Giuliani visited with patrons and criticized Democratic rivals, saying they fail to recognize the threat of terrorism.

In between kissing babies and sipping iced coffee, the former New York mayor positioned himself as the candidate to fight terrorism.

Rudy Giuliani currently is the front runner in Inland Empire and California state polls.

Mayor Rudy Giuliani continues his commanding double digit lead in the latest Washington Post – ABC News National GOP Presidential Poll.

The GOP NUTS:

giulianijuly24dweb

Let’s look at the state of the race:

  • Rudy leads in fundraising and cash on hand
  • Rudy leads and has led most if not all national GOP polls for months
  • Rudy has been actively campaigning in most early primary and February 5 Super Tuesday states, including California.
  • Rudy leads in most(spelled majority) state primary polls without ANY advertising.
  • John McCain is broke and scaled back his campaign to three early primary states.
  • John McCain fired his campaign staff and is reorganizing his campaign – he vows he will not quit.  However, Newt gingrich predicts he will quit the race after he receives his federal election matching funds.
  • Fred Thompson has not even announced his candidacy and fired his campaign manager today because of a fight with his wife.
  • Fred Thompson will have ONLY three months to fundraise and campaign before the first primary elections.
  • Mitt Romney fails to poll in double digits nationally and trails badly in Super Tuesday state polls – often polling in single digits.
  • Mitt Romney barely leads Rudy in New Hampshire polls where he has been on television for many weeks.

Rudy is the inevitable GOP Presidential nominee.

End of story.

Giuliani Notes: Radio Ads to Begin in New Hampshire and Iowa

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Giuliani Notes, President 2008, Rudy Giuliani

Republican presidential hopeful and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani waves after addressing the 2007 South Carolina Fire-Rescue Convention Friday, July 20, 2007, at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Campaign will launch three radio ads in New Hampshire and Iowa tomorrow:

“Out of Control”:

GIULIANI: Every promise I made running as Mayor of New York City they said couldn’t be done… said I couldn’t cut crime… New York City was the crime capital of the America… can’t be done.

VOICE OVER: Under Rudy Giuliani’s leadership crime in New York City dropped 56%.

GIULIANI New York City was the welfare capital of America… 1.1 million people on welfare. You can’t cut welfare… can’t be done.

VOICE OVER: Welfare rolls went down by a staggering 58%.

GIULIANI: They said we couldn’t reduce taxes in New York. They said you couldn’t get control of spending. That’s impossible.

VOICE OVER: Rudy Giuliani turned a 2.3 billion dollar deficit into a multi-billion dollar surplus and cut or eliminated 23 taxes.

GIULIANI: My focus when I ran for Mayor of New York City was on the future, and it will be in this campaign. Leadership is about what we can do, what we can accomplish, never taking “No” for an answer. This is all about how America can grow, how America can get stronger, how America can be the country that realizes all the potential we know we have.

VOICE OVER: Paid for by Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee Incorporated.

GIULIANI: I’m Rudy Giuliani and I approve this message

The audio for Out of control is here.

“Will Do:”

VOICE OVER: Here is Rudy Giuliani talking about his 12 Commitments to the American People; including his commitment to restore fiscal discipline and cut wasteful Washington spending.

GIULIANI: This is what I did in New York City. I restored fiscal discipline and I held spending in New York City, a city that was out of control in spending, to less then the rate of inflation and the growth of the population.

VOICE OVER: Leading George Will to say Rudy Giuliani’s eight years as Mayor were “the most successful episode of conservative governance in this country in the last 50 years.”

GIULIANI: We will require agency heads to present 5 to up to as much as 20% reductions in their annual budget. It’s the only way to reduce spending. And we’ll make sure we do away with earmarks in which anonymous spending is done in the billions and billions and billions of dollars. I will restore fiscal discipline and cut wasteful Washington spending.

“Garbage Can:”

VOICE OVER: Here’s Rudy Giuliani, talking about his 12 Commitments to the American People,

including his commitment to cut taxes and reform the tax code.

GIULIANI: I believe that you collect more money from lower taxes then you collect from higher taxes. I believe in it because I saw it work.

I was given a report, shortly after I was Mayor-Elect, and the report was all of the things that should be done to take New York City out of the deficit. The biggest ones were raise taxes. They asked me what I was going to do with the report, and I said I’m going to throw it in the garbage. It doesn’t make any sense. It’s exactly why we are in the trouble we are in, and then I went ahead and reduced taxes. I reduced the rate for income tax by about 23-24 percent. The revenues from the income tax went up 40 percent. That’s what we have to do. I will cut taxes and reform the tax code because I realize that that’s how you stimulate an economy.

VOICE OVER: Paid for by Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee Incorporated.

GIULIANI: I’m Rudy Giuliani and I approve this message.

The audio for Garbage Can is here.

***********

Mitt Romney currently leads the polls in both of these states, while Hizzoner leads in most of the others. Romney has been “on air” with television commercials for some time. Will this cheaper media buy give Rudy the BUMP he desires in these two early states?

Stay tuned……
