Rudy Giuliani is expanding upon his remarks last night at a private dinner in New York that President Barack Obama “does not love America” ....So what was Giuliani saying today? That Obama's friendzoning America? That Obama loves America but he's not in love with America? That Obama loves America, but he thinks it should see other presidents?
“Well, first of all, I’m not questioning his patriotism. He’s a patriot, I’m sure,” the former mayor of New York said on “Fox and Friends” Thursday morning.
“What I’m saying is, in his rhetoric, I very rarely hear 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.”No, no, no, Rudy. That's not what you said last night. Here's what you said:
Obama is different from his predecessors in that respect, Giuliani said.
“I do hear him criticize America much more often than other American presidents,” he told the morning show hosts. “And when it’s not in the context of an overwhelming number of statements about the exceptionalism of America, it sounds like he’s more of a critic than he is a supporter.”
“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.”You said Obama isn't really an American at all.
Don't try to weasel out with this I'm-sure-he's-a-patriot crap. Own it, you coward.
