RNC 2008 Springboard Competition: Rudy “Prime Time” Giuliani


Dive: Offensive–Not Defensive, New York, 9/11, Munich, Klinghoffer, Churchill, Kerry, Edwards, 9/11, Reagan, Arafat, Russian, Construction Worker, 9/11, Chicago Cop, Syrian, Sudanese, Old Testament, 9/11, World War II, Forward, Backward, Reverse, Straight, Pike, Tuck, 9/11, Cannonball

Level of Difficulty (10 point scale): 79

Analysis: Known primarily for a severe style, an unusually limber Rudy attempts a complex combination of moves that involves an unusual leap and a tremendous amount of airtime. (These scores are unofficial as the judges have yet to determine if the performance is over yet.)

Total Score (10 point scale): 5.5

    Well, one thing that Senator McCain made perfectly clear at the republican national convention is that pre-emptive war is an acceptable policy for the US. I take issue with that. Pre-emptive war has yet to be fully discussed in the Congress or by the American people. And with the track record of the failed war in Iraq I don’t believe we can continue this policy. I find it unacceptable that a band of flag waving zealots has high-jacked this great nation and set it upon a disastrous course of pre-emptive war without a debate.
