Rudy Giuliani is using that old, tired and failed line that President Obama doesn’t love America once again. Yes, we see where that got the Republican Party in 2008 and 2012 — Obama beat John McCain and later Mitt Romney by a landslide.
Rudy Giuliani went straight for the jugular Wednesday night during a private group dinner here featuring Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by openly questioning whether President Barack Obama “loves America.”
The former New York mayor, speaking in front of the 2016 Republican presidential contender and about 60 right-leaning business executives and conservative media types, directly challenged Obama’s patriotism, discussing what he called weak foreign policy decisions and questionable public remarks when confronting terrorists.
“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 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.”
George W. Bush really loved America so much he left it in tatters. It sounds like Rudy Giuliani is appealing to the birther crowd. These Republicans are hard learners. The same shrill chorus of the birthers, among other GOP shenanigans,helped propel President Obama to two resounding victories.
