Rudy's laid off numerous employees, including the entourage of five he used to roll with.  

 

He has, however, retained the son of one of his friends as a driver to keep up appearances.

I remember a Thanksgiving Day parade in Manhattan with the crowd chanting "Rudy, Rudy", some years ago.  And now he is facing the reality that "all glory is fleeting".  What a shame.

I lived in NYC then.  I recall feeling bad when Bloomberg took over because...wow...how do you fill those shoes.  Seriously.  (And Bloomberg far exceeded them, but that doesn't diminish what Rudy did.)

 

His best defense...again...serious...is probably dementia.  How else do explain such a complete character change?

It’s sad to see what he’s become.

 

When he was elected mayor, I thought it provided an example of how a democratic town run by pathetic liberals got so bad, sane heads prevailed and they elected an adult to right the ship so to speak. With great success. It gave me hope.

It is sad.  He's one of the various lawyers who seem to have come totally unglued in Trump's service. Lin Wood did fine work in Richard Jewell's case, now he's trying to avoid a competency hearing. Sidney Powell is reduced to claiming that no sober adult would ever have taken her claims of conspiracies and rigged Dominion machines seriously. Rudy has freaked out.

If he was a leftist, everything would be just fine?

That may be my most favorite defense of all time.

Lefties have become super angry, vindictive, petty people. There will be no unity. How can there be?

Revisionist history. The man was always an imbecile. 

Preparedness before the attacks
Location of Office of Emergency Management headquarters
In September 2006, Village Voice writer and long-time Giuliani critic Wayne Barrett and Dan Collins, a senior producer for CBSNews.com, published The Grand Illusion: The Untold Story of Rudy Giuliani and 9/11,[1] one of the strongest reassessments of Giuliani's role in the events of 9/11. The book highlights his decision to locate the NYC Office of Emergency Management headquarters (long-identified as a target for a terrorist attack) on the 23rd floor inside the 7 World Trade Center building, a decision that had been criticized at the time in light of the previous terrorist attack against the World Trade Center in 1993.[2][3]

The Office of Emergency Management was created to coordinate efforts between police and firefighters, but with the distraction of evacuating its headquarters, it was not able to conduct these efforts properly 

 

Radio communications
Main article: September 11, 2001 radio communications
The 9/11 Commission noted in its report that lack of preparedness could have led to the deaths of first responders at the scene of the attacks. The Commission noted that the radios in use by the fire department were the same radios which had been criticized for their ineffectiveness following the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. Giuliani testified to the Commission, where some family members of responders who had died in the attacks appeared to protest his statements.[11] A 1994 mayoral office study of the radios indicated that they were faulty. Replacement radios were purchased in a no-bid contract. They were implemented in early 2001. However, in March 2001 the replacement radios were found to be faulty as well.[12]

Fire Department chiefs issued orders for the firefighters to evacuate. However, the order was issued over the radios that were not working in the towers, thus, the 343 firefighters inside the Twin Towers could not hear the evacuation order. They remained in the towers as the towers collapsed.[13][14] However, when Giuliani testified before the 9/11 Commission he said that the firefighters ignored the evacuation order out of an effort to save lives.[15][16]

Also criticized was Giuliani's focus on personal projects and turf wars rather than vital precautions for the city, and his role in communications failures (which may have been the result of patronage deals inside City Hall).
