Last week former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani told some people at a private fundraising event for Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin that he did not believe that President Obama loves America.
It kind of reminds me of Mitt Romney speaking candidly at a private event about the 47% who will vote for Obama no matter what because the government takes care of them.
Some politicians have a hard time understanding that these “private” fundraisers may not be all that private.
I have always liked Giuliani, and I even thought he was a better Presidential candidate than Mitt Romney. Giuliani’s remarks about the President were way out of bounds. At age 70, Giuliani seems to be grasping for the limelight as his life fades over the horizon. It would have been better if he would have ridden quietly into the sunset, but instead he decided to throw some firebombs to get some attention – and attention he did get!
Personally, I don’t think we’ve ever had a President who did not love our country.
Giuliani also decided that Obama should be painted as a communist. He said Obama from a young age was influenced by communists.
If Obama supporters want to say these are racist remarks, Giuliani has that covered, too, because he says the President:
“…was brought up by a white mother, a white grandfather, went to white schools, and most of this he learned from white people,” Mr. Giuliani said in the interview. “This isn’t racism. This is socialism or possibly anti-colonialism.”
Next up we’ll have Giuliani and Donald Trump holding a press conference on Fox News saying they have uncovered evidence that Obama was born in Kenya.
