Why Rudy Will Never Be President

I hope, anyways. He says things like this:

In a potential preview of next fall’s presidential contest, Mr. Giuliani, who is seen as the front-runner for the Republican nomination, directly attacked the leading Democratic candidate, Mrs. Clinton, over a speech she gave Tuesday in New Hampshire bemoaning the return of “robber barons” and promising to pursue “shared prosperity” by increasing taxes on Americans making more than $200,000 a year.

“This would be an astounding, staggering tax increase,” Mr. Giuliani told reporters yesterday after a visit to a restaurant on the edge of California’s Silicon Valley. “She wants to go back to the 1990s…. It would hurt our economy. It would hurt this area dramatically. That kind of tax increase would see a decline in your venture capital. It would see a decline in your ability to focus on new technology.” (Emphasis added.)

Um, yes, I would like to go back to the 90s, please. That's not a bad thing. I remember it as a decade where there was a lot of peace, a lot of prosperity, we won a war in the middle east and then smartly got out before we were ensared, and there was a president in the oval office that I could actually respect. Unlike the average neo-cronny 28 percenter, apparently.

Oh, also, conservative religious types hate Giuliani.

What's the over/under on when he's going to catastrophically meltdown, anyway? He's too crazy not to before too long.
