After video of Mitt Romney declaring that 47% of Americans were just lousy bums looking for a handout leaked, Romney stood by the comments. Then last week, Romney flip-flopped, saying, "In this case I said something that's just completely wrong." That's a move the Forever Mayor Of 9/11 Town doesn't think Romney has anything to be embarrassed about: “If I were Governor Romney, I would say that I am glad I had the courage to raise an issue nobody else would raise." Rudy Giuliani may be a total dick, but at least you know where you stand with him...except when you don't.
Giuliani was appearing at a fundraiser for U.S. Senate candidate Josh Mandel in Toledo when he made the comments about Romney. Despite supporting the message behind his words, Giuliani admitted Romney could used some of that classic Giuliani eloquence when he first said it: “It’s the same thing with all this nonsense about Big Bird,” he said. “Why are we supporting a radio station? When I became mayor of New York, we owned two radio stations... and I sold them for then, $38 million...In my world where I grew up communist countries own radio stations.”
Of course, it's classic Giuliani to compare Romney unfavorably to himself. That was Giuliani's excuse when he was asked about all those times he said Romney wasn't a good candidate for the presidency: "So I was comparing what I thought was my far superior record to his otherwise decent record. That's all part of campaigning...Well, there's a certain amount of personal ego in that," he told CNN's "State of the Union" in the spring.
During his appearance in Toledo, Giuliani also spent a lot of time criticizing President Obama (“We cannot stand four more years of Barack Obama") and the liberal media's librul agenda: “Republicans get held accountable. Democrats get let off the hook. It’s a simple fact of the media being 70 to 80 percent Democrat, which you have here. If what happened in Libya happened under George Bush, the New York Times would be writing editorials talking about impeachment right now.” Yup, no doubt that Rudy has still got it!
