Somewhere in all of this backtracking and obfuscating, Rudy Giuliani and 9/11 have a point:
Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday night he doesn't believe President Barack Obama "loves America," according to a report.
"I do not believe -- and I know this is a horrible thing to say -- but I do not believe that the president loves America," said Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and one-time presidential contender, according to Politico. "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."
In the resulting shit storm, Rudy and 9/11 pleaded for understanding and said:
"He's a patriot, I'm sure," Giuliani said. "What I'm saying is, in his rhetoric, I very rarely hear him say the things that I used to hear Ronald Reagan say, the things that I used to hear Bill Clinton say about how much he loves America."
Giuliani added that he hears Obama "criticize America much more often than other American presidents" and that he sounds "like he's more of a critic than he is a supporter."
"You can be a patriotic American and be a critic, but then you're not expressing that kind of love that we're used to from a president," Giuliani said.
So, the President of the United States, who is a Democrat, is a patriot who does not love America? Really?
Did someone tell Rudy and 9/11 that Obama isn't running next year? How many firemen died on Obama's watch because of terrible planning, crappy radios, and a lack of command and control? Is that the wrong question to ask of Rudy and 9/11?
