    Did anyone else know he was ON the Iraq Study Group?
    Nice to see Mr. Take-it-to-'em-on-offense, Mayor Tough Guy couldn't be bothered to make the meetings.

    What was Keshia Knight Pulliam's nickname for most of the 90s?

    Rudy is now and always has been a fraud.

    In all fairness, the study group was a bunch of retired people or people voted out of office who had nothing more important to be doing with their time... Chaired by James Baker and Lee Hamilton. Lawrence Eagleburger, Ed Meese, Leon Panetta, Sandra Day O'Connor, etc. It isn't like the schedule was being set to accommodate a bunch of people serving in office right now or trying to run for president. It was a job made for a 70-year-old former politician. Not someone with current ambitions.

    The ISG is now and always has been a joke.

    Never said it wasn't, Guy. But this is typical Rudy.
    I guarantee you if something good ever came out of the ISG, Rudy would be out on the stump talking about his participation in the ISG...even if there was none.
  7. It is? And why is that?
    Because President Stupid ignored it?

    At the time of the Iraq Study Group, Rudy hat yet to announce his candidacy. So he was a "former" politician at that given moment.

    Unfortunately, Rudy selling the emotions of 9/11 still works for him.

    How fortunate for him that his fortified bunker located at a previously targeted location (WTC 93') crumbled to the ground and forced him to take the streets and play hero.
  9. Read the whole story. He blew off the meetings so he could go make speeches that made him $11 million.
    Oh, and his former BFF is weeping.

    Maybe he felt the committee had become "to politicised"
