No Show Rudy.

    I'm sure he felt that way after going to the first meeting...

    Nope, that's pure Rudy.

    If he couldn't take the advice of creating better relationships between the NYPD and the minority communities of NYC, why would he waste time with a study group?

    No, he formed it, why would he form it to ignore it. You have it reversed. He ignored it because it was a joke.

    Hadn't got a chance in hell of winning the presidency.
    Any media that spins how he does .. well, that media ought to go ahead and shut down the shop.
    Guy doesn't stand a chance.
  5. Actually, he ignored it because it told him things he didn't want to hear, like what a fuck-up he is, and he's never listened to people who tell him that, not even his old man.
    Joke's not on the committee, Guy.

    I thought he ignored the ISG report because his daddy had wanted him to pay attention to James Baker for a long time. He decided to show daddy who the real decider is!

    Not really in the mood for this, but can you name one thing that the ISG suggested that wasn't either stupid or obvious?

    As opposed to the Idiot in Chief who is stupid and can't even see the obvious?

    I'll take that as a no.
  10. Guy's real problem is that he's a lot smarter than the president he's quasi-defending.
    A lot of the ISG's recommendations were obvious just as a lot of the catastrophe in Iraq was both predictable and predicted. However, the current occupant listens only to Dick Cheney,his "higher father," and the voices in his head, so saying something is "obvious" is rather missing the point.
    And, in any event, since being Mr. 9/11 is Rudy's only reason for running -- he sure isn't running on his domestic policies or his stance on the social issues -- blowing off the ISG to go out buckraking is pretty unseemly. Come to think of it, has Mayor Courage been to Iraq yet? Most of the other GOP'ers have been.

    Take it as a rejection of the false dichotomy in the question.

    Do the Republicans ever run any candidates who aren't either incompetent or heartless bastards?

    See, it's fun for everyone!

    Reread the question.
