Rudy Giuliani on Barack Obama's campaign strategy…
"You know, Clinton ran on welfare reform, producing 100,000 cops on the street. Reagan ran on Morning in America. He's running on: 'Gee, I haven't been president for the last four years, and Romney's a bum.' "
Yeah, but he's doing it with a pretty slick web design and a rather elegant font.

Mitt Romney may not be a comedian, at least not intentionally, but at a campaign event with Rudy Giuliani on Tuesday, Romney had the quintessential experience of a New York comic: He dealt with a heckler…
"Mitt Romney is a racist!" [a woman] repeatedly screamed, drowning out Romney's comments and those made by Giuliani as well. "Racist! Racist!"
Her screams appeared to have prompted Romney aides to cut the presumptive Republican nominee's talk short. While Romney did not acknowledge the protester, the candidate walked away from the microphone after just five minutes and moved toward his waiting SUV.
When Giuliani did not follow, Romney awkwardly returned to the microphone to thank the former mayor for joining him at the event. As the protester continued to assail Romney — bellowing expletives at the GOP candidate, including "F*** you, Mitt Romney!" — he exited the scene again, this time for good.
On the plus side, a woman screaming "F*** you, Mitt Romney" is the first time anyone has ever expressed a strong emotion one way or the other about him.
Yesterday we learned that there's a "wild and crazy man inside Mitt." Perhaps he could have responded less awkwardly if he had gotten in touch with his inner "wild and crazy" woman.
In the screaming lady's defense, she probably just thought she was at a terrible comedy show. After all, most of Mitt Romney's attempts at appealing to ordinary Americans seem like a bad joke.

Rudy Giuliani on the limits of his possible upcoming campaign…
"I'm simply not that conservative on social issues, and I'm not willing to change just to become president."
Or, to put more simply…
"I'm simply not… [go]ing to… become president."

Despite the fact that he's currently polling way way way way way waaaaay beneath current frontrunner Mitt Romney in the New Hampshire polls, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani — who, if I'm not mistaken, was involved with 9/11 somehow — thinks that he sees a way to the top of the Granite State primaries…
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani isn't just thinking about running for president next year: It's his obsession and he's already mapping out a strategy to knock off GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney in New Hampshire.
According to a long-time supporter, New York Rep. Peter King, running and winning this time is "almost a full-time business for him."
What's more, adds King, Giuliani has already been "talking to people in New Hampshire" about his strategy to focus all his early attention there, not the Iowa caucus, because beating Romney in the former Massachusetts governor's political backyard will propel the New Yorker's candidacy into the next two showdowns in South Carolina and Nevada.
Well, if there's one thing we know about Rudy Giuliani, it's that he's a mastermind at strategizing primary victories.
Like, remember last time when he decided to forgo the first dozen or so primaries so that he could really really really focus on a big win in Florida? I'm pretty sure that worked out really well for him.
So, needless to say, I have complete faith in his brilliant machinations this time around.
