VFR on Giuliani

Here is a selection of VFR articles on Rudolph Giuliani’s lack of suitability for the presidency, going back to December 2002. In early 2007, when virtually the entire conservative establishment seemed to regard Giuliani as the inevitable nominee, and when many conservatives, including even “social conservatives for Giuliani,” were coming out in support of him, VFR posted one article after another insisting on Giuliani’s unfitness for the office. By the end of 2007, VFR’s one-time minority view had become a widely accepted view, and Giuliani’s once-high-flying campaign had sunk.

Giuliani backer starts to see the Giuliani Problem (LA wrote: “Giuliani since leaving office at the beginning of 2001 has changed from the lean and hungry civic reformer he once was into a gross ego-balloon of a celebrity, attached at the hip to his grasping third wife with whom he’s infatuated and to whom he is evidently in thrall. His candidacy thus seems to be about Rudy and Judi and their drama rather than about the country and how he would lead it.”)
