-- much more former mayor city mayor Rudy Giuliani Dario how are you.
Have to -- you can't make up a huge hit decision -- Carlos whatever they want danger danger.
Can't make it up and it in the most of them are there any any number shocking -- -- the most shocking is that after he left congress.
After he said he was going to stop this and and then he goes and runs for mayor.
And he's been doing it all during that period of time what does -- think -- I have I have no idea I never understood Anthony anyway when he was in the City Council or.
Strange guy I mean really really strange guy obviously.
Even more trouble than we originally thought.
-- if he had done this once.
Put some time between then and now.
-- himself out fine but obviously he still has this compulsion of this problem it's been ongoing.
You know within the Illinois mayor and arguably you -- mayor Doreen the most trying time in New York history.
Can you have these impulse control issues and be mayor of New York City.
I don't know I mean I think he needs help it's quite obvious that he's crying out for help and the best place to do that is privately not.
Not you know running running for office.
The fact is that guys who I mean I would I would -- Anthony -- -- whether this happened or didn't happen I think Anthony it was a terrible congressman I mean.
I -- -- she was on the other side of the ledger.
You're one side of the ledger we have all this you can.
Think it's -- -- -- think it's terribly that is part of the private life so now let's look on the other side of the -- what legislation that he -- -- -- What did he ever accomplish.
Some of his democratic colleagues will tell you.
That he was a pretty useless congress.
So I don't know what that he's running -- What Charlie Rangel says something interest and I hope is not true he said it will not have any impact.
On New York democratic voters do you agree that -- -- that I see a lot of -- Democrats want him to drop out of the race.
In fact you know for you -- me to say you should drop out of the race report Republicans conservatives -- they can just left that office say it's partisan.
But off a lot of Democrats are saying you should drop out.
And it doesn't help.
The Democratic Party to have a -- candidate like that I mean -- it hurts particularly with him and Spitzer at the same time running tumbling creates a terrible image.
Couple weeks ago I testified before congress right after Spitzer was was -- suggesting he'd run.
I had Democrat democratic members coming up saying to me what's wrong where you're sitting -- -- Both these guys -- running well it's interesting because all of the candidates a democratic candidates are all talking about.
Eliminating all the policies you put in place.
That lower than murder rate from well over -- -- I -- and I think you have an heading right for Detroit and if you think about it why is New York not Detroit.
We were Detroit do you think that you think of new York and had twelve I don't think -- get isn't as bad as -- as Detroit because we have a lot more assets you know -- Detroit has.
But -- -- right now we don't have agreements with any of -- any of the unions.
I think -- 23 years old.
The city is in.
Difficult fiscal situation if those unions demand more than they should you need a mayor who can be independent.
Of those unions and sit down and say I'm sorry but my first union negotiation.
I got a five year contract in the first two years was -- us.
I remember and I got tremendous grief for that -- tremendous demonstrations and anger about it I didn't do because I wanted to do it but did it because.
I had a balance the budget.
And I got elected independent of those unions I didn't have to go back to them.
And and curry any kind of support from that it you know remember President Obama this was a big issue in the campaign -- you talk about cities.
Detroit's now bankrupt.
Largest city in America bankrupt.
-- 88888 a complete absolute result of liberal democratic policies.
Which is what I turned around in New York City.
One of the reasons I ran -- -- was -- -- -- that for twenty or thirty years was being governed by governing principles -- -- heading for bankruptcy let me show what you -- President Obama set about Detroit back in the campaign I know you -- campaign for Mitt Romney.
-- -- -- my opponents and others -- -- that we should let Detroit go bankrupt.
We made a bet on American workers and the ingenuity of American companies and today our auto industry is back on top of the.
We refused to throw in the towel and do nothing we refused to let four go bankrupt.
I bet on American workers and American ingenuity and three years later that that is paying off -- a big what.
He refused to let Detroit go back -- not getting what a fifteen billion dollars back from the car companies -- easily that's a gift and Detroit's bankrupt of course.
What he did was he he he completely.
-- when the bought bondholders.
In order to favor of the unions in and in -- in theoretically saving because the the car companies to -- that was a heck of thing that he did but in any event.
Once again this is another Obama campaign promise Obama campaign pledge it turns out to be useless and phony.
And the reality is when you listen to his speech the other day I mean it's really sad and where -- Where where witnesses that he hasn't been president for the last five years all of a sudden he's now announcing these policies -- he's had his policies in effect for five years now.
And we've got to Detroit -- bankrupt.
More people on food stamps than ever before -- history we have more people and dependency he's heading us right toward dependency.
-- and if if if we don't have an independent mayor of New York City.
The fiscal situation for New York City could start approaching the fiscal situation in Detroit.
That it's a question upon the policies that you support if you cave in constantly to all the special interest.
Which is what New York City was doing for thirty years you -- would bankruptcy -- of the year if you stand up.
And you end up with sensible.
-- programs the end up which sensible spending.
You can save any of these cities that you did I certainly did you you took over I took over a city with ten and a half percent unemployment.
Two billion dollar.
Deficit and within two or three years we had a feeling 500 murders a year.
2500 murders a year I left the city with 500 murders -- year.
If you put sensible policies in effect.
If you don't -- the special interest -- which every one of these democratic candidates would do because I'm supporting Joseph -- he was my deputy mayor and help me do a lot of these things.
But NFL only hope to have an independent mayor we've had now twenty years of independent -- I was independent Mike Bloomberg with independent.
We made our decisions based on what was good for the city.
Not trying to curry favor with this particularly union -- -- -- -- term two terms as mayor 600000.
People came off welfare went to work that's right etc.
probably created 500000.
And we pretty much slashed unemployment in half.
Don't -- as far as mr.
mayor good to say thank you --
