Rudy Giuliani addresses Catastrophic-Fund Plan for Florida

Catastrophic-Fund Plan
Moves to Fore in Florida
January 26, 2008; Page A6

As Florida's Republican primary nears, an issue of acute local interest -- whether the federal government should help insure homeowners on the hurricane-battered coast -- has taken center stage.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who has slipped in polls after betting his prospects on a strong showing in Florida, is bidding for votes by touting the idea in campaign appearances and in a new ad. At Thursday's GOP debate in Boca Raton, he pressed Arizona Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to back such insurance.

Blogger - why I support Giuliani

Here's why I support Giuliani, and it has nothing to do with his response to September 11

Here's why I support Giuliani, and it has nothing to do with his response to September 11:

Rudy Giuliani eliminated street crime in New York City. The conventional wisdom said it couldn't be done, and the reasons are suspiciously similar to what the same bloviators say about the war against Islamofascism today:

Rudy Giuliani and the Speech

Giuliani Retools Stump Speech


TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani's "bold" vision for the nation sounded a lot like the same ideas he's been talking about for months, but delivered in a new package Saturday.

Giuliani's address before about 200 people was billed by his campaign as a new speech that shows the former New York mayor's bold vision for the future of the country.

But the 30-plus minute speech hit on similar themes: a little Hillary Rodham Clinton bashing, some reflections on the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a call to make energy independence as big a priority as landing on the moon was in the 1960s, and the need to fight terrorism so the United States can be safe and do more business in the Middle East.
