Rudy Giuliani again?

[ Rudy Gulianai…….That ‘s Marco Rubio off to his right….]

The Dog can scratch his head on this one……

Politico has this piece on the ex- New York City Mayor possibly positioning himself  for another run at President?

He’s collecting chits for his fundraising efforts for a whole lot of GOP people out there….

This guy has backed out of the last three attempts to run for anything…

Don’t do it Rudy….

Take the money…Stay private….

Well……..Maybe you can get a Cabinet spot….Attorney General in GOP administration….

( Psssst!….Obama isn’t gonna lose………)

He was on political life support after his disastrous 2008 presidential run, but Rudy Giuliani has positioned himself in a critical year as a potent Republican fundraiser and the party’s star surrogate for hammering the White House on terror.

After deciding against a run for governor after a prolonged flirtation with a bid, the former New York City mayor has upped his political and paid-speaking travel schedule. In June, he’ll make his first public visit to New Hampshire since the single-digit, fourth-place finish there in the January 2008 Republican presidential primary that triggered his fast fall from front-runner to also-ran.

His high-profile reemergence, coinciding with the return of terror to the national headlines and numerous Sunday shows appearances bashing the president on the issue, leaves little doubt that he wants to be in the national mix. What’s less clear is what Giuliani is looking for in his next act.

“He wants to be part of the game in 2012,” said Fred Siegel, a former adviser to the mayor and author of “The Prince of the City,” a history of his time in office, who still talks to him periodically.

Giuliani, Siegel said, is trying to keep his options open for the future by being part of “the game,” but isn’t necessarily angling to run for office again.

“As a presidential candidate? Not necessarily,” Siegel said, suggesting that Giuliani could instead try to make himself a cabinet appointee or try for something else with national influence. The last New York mayor elected to any higher office, he noted, was John T. Hoffman – in 1869.

  10. Giuliani will get a cabinet spot likely Homeland Security in a GOP administration in either 2012 or 2016.

    The jury’s still OUT on Obama’s re-election prospects in 2012 because folks are getting sick of his change mantra shit.

    It’s always a matter of concern when a poll shows a four-point difference one month and two months later it turns into thirteen points. On the other hand, White has done nothing in these two months while Perry has had Anise Parker running interference for him. Do not forget that for twenty years Parker worked for Robert Mosbacher, one of the most stalwart Republicans in Texas. As I said in my post, what Parker said is going to stick.
