Former Los Angeles Mayor Endorses Rudy … Sort Of September 28, 2007Posted by fitsnews in 2008 Presidential Primaries.
“PRO-GIULIANI” COMMENTS SOUND MORE LIKE A CAMPAIGN COMMERCIAL FOR HIZZONER’S OPPONENTS
FITSNews – September 28, 2007 – We actually like Rudy Giuliani a lot here at FITSNews, but damn if Hizzoner’s people don’t need to do a better job prepping the politicians who endorse him. Kind of like former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, who “endorsed” Giuliani today and then proceeded to say he was “too liberal” to win the California Republican primary. From the AP article:
Riordan said he believed Giuliani was “too liberal” to appeal to the state’s right-wing voters but would make a good president based on his experience as the mayor of New York City. “On the primary, you get this solid, super right-wing group of people who are going to have litmus tests on everything from gun control to abortion to other things. He’s going to be hurt there,” Riordan said. In the general election, he said, “the liberal vote in California is going to tear him apart. So he’s going to have to be very, very careful, have to show himself as a leader and not be too specific on the issues.”
Our guess is one of Rudy’s GOP opponents is paying this idiot because they could have given him a million bucks and not gotten a better return on their investment. It’s like somebody mistakenly handed him the Mitt Romney talking points, which basically consist of a single white piece of paper with the words “Rudy: Too Liberal” scrawled on it using a bright red Crayola marker. Seriously, he might as well have followed this endorsement with a swift kick to Rudy’s balls, and then maybe groped Rudy’s wife while Hizzoner was doubled over on the ground in agony. After that he could have put on a Dodgers baseball cap and talked about what a bunch of fags play for the New York Yankees, and how anybody who roots for the Yankees is a damn queer lover.
