Giuliani Time: The Movie

Pat Robertson endorsed Rudy on THIS WEEK back in May of '05. (video) For some reason the issue of divorce doesn't seem to bother the so-called religious leaders if they think it might keep a Republican in office. He doesn't seem to like McCain very much either.

More than this, Giuliani consistently fell out of favor with people who had once been closely allied to him. Former New York (and now Los Angeles) Police Chief William J. Bratton says Giuliani "rules by intimidation and fear," and former city schools chancellor Rudy Crew says, "there's something very deeply pathological about Rudy's humanity. He was barren, completely emotionally barren on the issue of race."

Positive assessments of Giuliani, such as being called "compassionate" by Donald Trump, don't carry the same weight.With revelations of extramarital affairs inflaming the news media, and even the loyal police starting to turn against him, Giuliani looked to be at the end of the road.

With the former mayor currently enjoying one of the rare second acts in American political life, "Giuliani Time" does a strong job of reminding us what the first one was like.
