Rudy Giuliani Says Very Obvious Things In Long Need of Being Publicly, Openly Said

We have avoided the obvious for years in order to appear "respectable."

It's about time Obama started trying to appear respectable himself.

Andy already covered this but it's been a long time coming and the world won't end if I double post.

"I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America," Giuliani said during the dinner at the 21 Club, a former Prohibition-era speakeasy in midtown Manhattan. "He doesnít love you. And he doesn't love me. He wasnít brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country."

I have no idea why they stuck that little bit of trivia about the 21 Club in there. The 21 Club has been one of NYC's most expensive and most prestigious (and most overrated, and most on-the-long-decline, I hear) restaurants for like, what? How many decades?

But Politico mentions "Oooh it used to be a speakeasy" like this is some sort of shady venue.

....

In an interview after the dinner -- Walker aides insisted all of the governorís comments were off the record -- Giuliani said he would "eventually" back a Republican presidential candidate. He also elaborated on his criticism of Obama by arguing the president "sees our weaknesses as footnotes to the great things weíve done."

That is Guiliani garbling his thoughts; our weaknesses are footnotes (and footnotes worth reading, as footnotes usually are) to our accomplishments.

Obama doesn't see our failings as footnotes. He sees them as the main text. He sees America doing a few good things here and there (most importantly: electing him) as the footnotes.

"What country has left so many young men and women dead abroad to save other countries without taking land? This is not the colonial empire that somehow he has in his hand. Iíve never felt that from him. I felt that from [George] W. [Bush]. I felt that from [Bill] Clinton. I felt that from every American president, including ones I disagreed with, including [Jimmy] Carter. I don't feel that from President Obama."

...


"I thought the Crown Heights riots were a pogrom because youíre going out trying to kill Jews," Giuliani said. "Why is this man incapable of saying that? Youíve got to be able to criticize Islam for the parts of Islam that are wrong. You criticize Christianity for the part of Christianity that is wrong. Iím not sure how wrong the Crusades are. The Crusades were kind of an equal battle between two groups of barbarians. The Muslims and the crusading barbarians. What the hell? Whatís wrong with this man that he canít stand up and say thereís a part of Islam thatís sick?"

"What's wrong with this president" will be a question we ask with greater frequency -- and with greater urgency -- as President Bullworth Truthbomb rises to his anti-american crescendo.
