In Florida, Giuliani Hits Romney in New Ad

By Chris Cillizza
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been left out of the campaign for much of the last few weeks, but a new ad his campaign is running in Florida seems certain to put him back in the mix:

It's a series of quotes by fiscal conservatives praising Giuliani's record as a tax cutter -- the most important of which comes from Mitt Romney, one of Hizzoner's rivals for the Republican nomination.

"Mayor Giuliani has a great record of cutting taxes," reads the Romney quote -- the final quote to flash on the screen in the 30-second spot.

I currently support Mike Huckabee, but I'm willing to switch to Fred Thompson if the Giuliani, Romney, and McCain people will do the same.

Interesting that Guliani is targeting Romney instead of McCain or Huckabee...must mean he sees Romney as the potential leader once the action hits Florida?

Neither Willard or Rudolph stand a prayer when their records are known...and by the time the election rolls around everyone will.

I am glad that it shows a supportive effort on behalve of Giuliani. Giuliani is an Excellent addition to Mitt and Mike's Ticket. Face it, Giuliani is better qualified to be actively working as a Cabinet Minister, than having to play Statesman.

AGAIN, I pose a question openly and challengingly to Senator John McCain. If he is NOT a Coward, I want an answer!

Senator McCain, on September 11, 2001, would YOU have preferred to be Reading "My pet goat", or in Bush's Cabinet, in the White House actually handling the Military ends?

Senator, YOU are after the WRONG Job!
