Marc, we think you're a bright boy. We really do.
And, we look forward to seeing you out on the Trail in New Hampshire again real soon.
But, as bright as you are, you're still being sold a bag of goods by Giulian's campaign when it comes to whether or not Hiz Honor is going to "play" in New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary.
Or, as your posted today, Giuliani's wants to "make a stand" in New Hampshire.
Sure he does.
That's why Rudy hired someone with ZERO experience in New Hampshire to run his first-in-the-nation operation.
That's why Rudy has spent less time in New Hampshire than any other candidate (on either side of the aisle) except for Brownback, Gilmore, Ron Paul and Gov Thompson.
That's why Rudy's New Hampshire Chairman, Wayne Semprini, was in the Union Leader newspaper last week "responding" to the dull roar from the NH chattering classes that Rudy is skipping first-in-the-nation.
Because you "respond" when there is smoke but no fire. Right?
Noted: We also believe Semprini was "setting the table" to proclaim "those bastards tricked me!" when Rudy officially pulls out. But that's just us.
That's what's going on here in New Hampshire ON THE GROUND.
In DC you were fed talk of "budgets" and "staff size" from Giuliani's national campaign staff.
Budgets and staff size?
Does anyone think that that's what the New Hampshire Primary is all about?
We guess maybe in Washington that they do.
