Former NYC Mayor and current media wh*re de jour, Rudy Giuliani, has been facing a firestorm of criticism over his comments regarding President Obama “not loving America.” Apparently, the former mayor loved America so much that he put the communication center in the twin towers, despite them being a constant terror target. He also happened to be tied to one of the most corrupt police chiefs, who used a September 11th apartment originally meant for rescue workers in which to have an extramarital affair. I’m referring, of course, to Bernard Kerik.
Giuliani has had it out for President Obama ever since his VP Joe Biden, who in 2008 attempted (failingly) a presidential campaign himself, hilariously smacked down Giuliani after the former NYC mayor criticized then-Senator Obama’s lack of foreign policy experience. In response, Biden said , “Giuliani is probably the most underqualified man since George Bush to seek the presidency.” Adding, “Rudy Giuliani – there’s only three things he [needs] to make … a sentence: a noun and a verb and 9/11.” Crazy uncle Joe Biden doesn’t mess around.
But Giuliani, being the vindictive bulldog he is, continues to assault the president. Moreover, trying to purport the myth that he hates America because he likes to speak out against injustices in addition to tout the positives. But what he failed to realize in his blind assault on President Obama is that many politicians have said some potentially unpatriotic things, including Vietnam war hero John McCain.
Here was Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain on CBS’s “Face the Nation” expressing criticism of our handling of the ongoing standoff between Russia and Ukraine:
“I’m ashamed of my country, I’m ashamed of my president and I’m ashamed of myself that I haven’t done more to help these people,” McCain said. “It is really, really heartbreaking.” (Daily Caller)
This must mean that John McCain is a covert commie who despises America, right? No, it simply means that he’s calling out an American policy with which he strongly disagrees. It’s also hard to find anything John McCain says as credible anymore when he’s doing selfies with terrorists one minute, then shouting about no hearings on Benghazi right as one was taking place. Nevertheless.
The fact of the matter is that it is sad and irrelevant that Republicans like Rudy Giuliani will never accept Obama as president. Finding anything and everything to accuse him of doing is their only shot at being mildly relevant again.
