Giuliani Blends Hope, Fear in Latest Campaign Speech (Susan Davis, 12/15/07, Wall Street Journal)

While Rudy Giuliani extolled the greatness of America to a crowd of several hundred supporters today in Florida, the undercurrent of the address–in large part meant to reenergize his campaign—was one of fear. “Today American remains that shining city on a hill, but there are those who live to extinguish that light, who plot and prey in darkness and wait and want for weakness,” declared a video that featured images of masked Arab men with guns shown prior to the former New York City mayor’s 30 minute address. “We can ignore their threat, hope it goes away, or meet it with strength and greet it with purpose.”

Such is the sound of desperation, from a candidacy based on a one off.
