3Q07 Fundraising Numbers

October 5, 2007

It seems everyone was paying more attention to the fundraising numbers the previous quarter.  It is still gratifying to notice that Hizzoner raised more last quarter than any other GOP candidate.  Assuming, of course, you don’t count the $8.5 million Romney gave to himself.

He just keeps spending and spending, and pretty much has a lead in a single midwestern caucus to show for it.

Alas, you all may have also noticed the Dems continue to out-raise the GOP.  It is distressing, but I won’t get in a twist about it for a bit.  Hillary looks likely to win the Dem nod.  As soon as there is officially a candidate Clinton redux I expect GOP donors to start writing so many checks to the appropriate candidate that they’ll have to start selling stock and working longer hours to accommodate their burning need to defeat her.  They just don’t know who that candidate is, yet.


Team Rudy Response To MoveOn in NYT

Quinnipiac Swing State Poll

August 9, 2007

Sorry for the infrequency of posts.  Busy life + nothing shocking = less posting.

There’s some trenchant commentary here from a brilliant blogger about the recent Quinnipiac swing state poll covering PA, FL, and OH.  No surprises:  Rudy leads all for the GOP nod and is the only GOP candidate who can compete in the general election.

I guess there was some pseudo-shocking news in the Vanity Fair hit piece on Mrs. Giuliani.  Whatever.  If that’s the best the NYC media can do, despite the fact they detest Giuliani for making their city better through tactics they insisted would never work, then the election may be easier than we thought.

Of course, we all know there’s more of that coming.  I will not hold my breath, though, on the similar piece on Bill Clinton’s philandry and corruption, Mrs. Obama’s sanctimony, or Mrs. Edwards’ naked ambition.

Rudy Calls Out Dems On Healthcare

April 29, 2007

Giuliani Sees Socialism in Democrats’ Plans, Washington Post, April 28, 2007.

Former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani pulled out the S-word to criticize universal-health-care plans advocated by Democratic presidential candidates.

The Republican hopeful said in a visit to Raleigh, N.C., that Democrats who urged “mandatory” universal health care at a debate Thursday night were “moving toward socialized medicine so fast, it’ll make your head spin,” according to the Associated Press.

Giuliani instead advocated for a private solution. “When we want to cover poor people, as we should, we give them vouchers,” he said.

New York turning red for Rudy…

April 10, 2007

A new poll done by Quinnipiac University shows Rudy only 8 points behind Hillary in his home state of New York (Hillary leads 50-42 percent). President Bush lost the state by 18 points against Kerry in 2004. The fact that Rudy is within single digits of Hillary in one of the bluest states in the country proves that Giuliani is the most electable Republican candidate. Rudy ties Barack Obama in NY, 44-44 percent. Rudy’s favorability rating in NY is 55 percent, extremely close to Hillary’s 58 percent favorability.

With Giuliani in the race, polls have shown many reliably “blue” states in play or swinging to the Republican side: Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Jersey, and now New York.

Obamarama on Letterman…

…says he’s in it to win it, all or nothing — and he wouldn’t consider being Hillary’s VP runningmate.  I guess in his book, if you’re not first, your last.
