Rudy: It's time to unmask Romney (Jonathan Martin, Nov 26, 2007, Politico)

In a big strategic shift, Rudy Giuliani hammered Mitt Romney’s record on three fronts, saying it was time to “take the mask off and take a look at what kind of governor was he.”

Using some of the toughest language of his campaign, Giuliani, in an interview with Politico, slammed Romney on health care, crime and taxes. At the same time he portrayed the one-time moderate as a hypocrite on a host of social issues who lives “in a glass house.” It was easily the most sweeping attack Giuliani has delivered against Romney in this campaign.

“He throws stones at people,” Giuliani said in an interview on his campaign bus. “And then on that issue he usually has a worse record than whoever he’s throwing stones at.”

Indeed, the Mayor's the only candidate with a worse record on social issues.

Let's get those ideological blinders off. The Mayor of NYC had a duty to get his citizens the best deal he can. The money tree is there for the shaking.

The reality is that NYC sends more than its share money to Washington, what kind of Mayor would not fight to get as much as possible back?
