Thou Shalt Not Ridicule a Black President
Giuliani dared to rip into Barack Obama:
WASHINGTON — Rudy Giuliani has delivered a political shot-in-the-gut to President Obama, charging the president doesn’t “love America.”
“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 told about 60 conservative business leaders gathered Wednesday night at the 21 Club to hear Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
According to the former mayor, Obama doesn’t love Giuliani either.
“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,” he continued, as Walker, who has entered the top tier of Republican presidential candidates, sat nearby.
The comments are a departure from standard political rhetoric, where blasting someone’s ideas is considered fair game, but questioning an opponent’s love of country is usually a no-no. Politico reported the expansive comments.
The fact is, Obama doesn’t love this country and Rudy said what at least half the country is thinking. Let’s crank up the Wayback Machine and revisit the moments when Barack Obama opened the door to his soul.
