Weasel of the Week: Rudolph Giuliani

He was once dubbed, "America's Mayor", by Oprah Winfrey in the wake of 9/11/01. However, 13 1/2 years later, former NYC mayor and NY Attorney General Rudolph Giuliani is just another political has-been searching to make himself relevant all over again.

You may have read about Giuliani's rant last week where he claimed that President Obama supposedly doesn't love this country, which I think had something to do with the President's hesitant, borderline soft stance on militant Muslim groups such as ISIS, who trade on fear, intimidation, and an unhealthy hate of the US and its allies, subverting the teachings of their own Quran (Koran) because of blind hatred. Giuliani went so far as to accuse Obama of being a Communist.


Where Giuliani got his information, I don't know, but in this regard, he's way, way off base. Look, I didn't vote for Obama myself, but I respect the man and his office. He's nearing the end of his run in Washington, but Obama should be safe in knowing that as of now, Giuliani has next to no shot of getting the Republican nomination next year. Ditto for former governor George "Rikki-Tikki" Pataki, who, according to Mike Lupica in today's New York Daily News, is playing the role of Dittohead to Giuliani's Rush Limbaugh. Speaking of guys looking to regain relevancy, well, there's another right there.

Of course, it could get worse. It could get the brainless "Birthers" out of the closets again, and we don't need that.

We all know the water's polluted down in NYC. How else to explain the nest of Weasels down there, which now includes the once revered Giuliani, this week's winner? It only goes to prove that it ain't just the downstate Democrats (i.e. Sheldon Silver) that have lost their minds. The Republicans, the so-called Grand Old Party (GOP should now stand for Geezers On Pot, at the worst), aren't much better.

Just read this link (if you dare) and try to tell me Obama didn't deserve Guiliani's comments.

Personally Guiliani did have a fair chance to be president but Bernard Kerik's background sunk him - even though they could have done well in the Oval Office. He was "America's Mayor" and had enough charisma and notoriety to hoist his name coast to coast.

I do admire the man for sticking to his guns and refusing to apologize for his comments.

I'll look up Director Blue later.

Giuliani, to me, was begging for attention from the GOP headed into 2016. Problem is, if the Democrats nominate Hilary, I doubt Giuliani would fare too well. I'd give McCain another chance, instead.

Anyway, As I said, while I didn't vote for Obama either time, I respect the office and the man, realizing the struggles he's had to deal with. What evidence Giuliani has to back up his claims, I don't know, but if it's just hearsay, then it's problematic.
