Giuliani praises Bush, Iraq war in Iona speech

Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani praised President Bush's handling of the war on terrorism — including the conflict in Iraq — last night, but said New Yorkers should still expect another attack.

The former mayor spoke to reporters after delivering a speech to more than 1,200 people inside Iona's gymnasium. He praised President Bush for going on the offensive against terrorism after Sept. 11, 2001, and said that despite setbacks in Iraq, that country is on its way toward having an accountable government.
The speech was paid for by the college and arranged through the Washington Speakers Bureau, which arranges the former mayor's paid appearances, Finn said. As part of the college's arrangement with the mayor, members of the media were not allowed to record the speech.

Giuliani, however, did hold a brief news conference with reporters afterward and said that despite sagging poll numbers, Bush would be remembered as one of the greatest presidents in history.

Embracing Shrub's legacy, his poll numbers and his vanity war is such a terrible campaign strategy for '08 that one can only conclude that he's running for Vice President in '06.

I can't think of a single Republican who isn't going to be damaged goods in the next two cycles.
