Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee, Inc.
30-second TV ad run in NH starting Dec. 20, 2007, (announced Dec. 19).
There are many things I wish for this holiday season.
I wish for peace with strength.
A government that spends less than it takes in.
Lower taxes for our businesses and families.
And I really hope, that all of the presidential candidates can just get along.
Santa Claus: Ho, ho, ho, ho. I was with you right up until that last one. Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho.
Giuliani: Canít have everything!

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!
|Notes: A number of campaigns put out Christmas-themed
ads. The Giuliani ad is most similar to the Clinton ad "Presents"
in that it is clever and works in a bit of policy. The Giuliani campaign
also produced a 30-second web holiday video, "Same Gift," in a similar
vein, featuring Giuliani in a red sweater next to Santa Claus:
Giuliani: With the primaries coming so early this year, I've got to tell you, I'm having a little trouble getting my holiday shopping done.
So I'll be working to get everyone the same gift:
A safe America, lower taxes, secure borders, job growth, fiscal discipline, strict constructionist judges and probably a fruit cake or something.
(Santa Claus, not seen): A fruit cake?
Giuliani: What? It'll be a really nice fruit cake with a big red bow on it or something like that.
I'm Rudy Giuliani and I approved this message.
Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays.
