We can only hope that the Republican party denounces the outrageous remarks made by Rudy Guiliani at Wednesday night’s private dinner for Scott Walker in New York City. This is what he said, “Speaking at a private dinner for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in Manhattan, the former mayor of New York said, “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Politico reports. He went on to say, “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.” Just reading those remarks makes me angry and outraged.
Today on Fox, he said that the President doesn’t love America like we do. Now, what exactly does that mean? When Scott Walker was asked about it, “Walker declined to comment, saying that Giuliani “can speak for himself.”” httpr://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/rudy-giuliani-i-do-not-believe-president-loves-america-n308886
Remember back in the 2008 presidential campaign when the crazy lady stood up at a John McCain townhall meeting and asked about Barack Obama being Muslim and not born in America? What if McCain had just replied, “Well that’s what some people say.” But, he didn’t do that. He forcefully told her that was wrong information and he corrected her. Where are those kind of GOP now?
Today, the DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz took exception to Guiliani’s comments and challenged all Republicans to say, “Enough”! http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/politicsnow/la-pn-democrats-respond-to-giuliani-comments-20150219-story.html
I’m not holding my breath waiting because this Republican party panders to the lowest element of their base. They know that saying mean and hateful things about President Obama and twisting his words or taking them out of context gets their RW base excited. It’s disgusting and shows a complete lack of integrity in the party.
Since I wrote this Thursday, Mr. Guliani has doubled down on his remarks. It’s obvious to me that his rhetoric is a smoke screen trying to cover that the Republican party has nothing to offer America. http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/19/politics/rudy-giuliani-doubles-down-obama-love-country-interview/
If someone in the Republican party has the grace and dignity to denounce Guilani’s remarks, I will highlight that person in this blog.
