Why Giuliani should never be in the Oval Office

... or any other position of public trust, for that matter:

You have free speech so I can be heard.

Authoritarians like him should have no place in our government.

No worries, bro. He's about to crater. Vegas is already calling it for Ron Paul in NH, and so am I.

Rudy McRomney has no idea what's coming, other than another fake terror attack this summer, which will backfire.
