  • America, Love It Or Leave It

    WASHINGTON -- When former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he did not think that "the president loves America," was he right? Of course he was. The record is strewn with President Barack Obama's statements of contempt for America. In a quieter setting, I think Professor Obama would agree. He would then go on to brag about his love for higher things: for humankind, for the world community, for the planet, the green planet. Recall in 2009 when Obama told a European audience, "There have been times when America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive toward" Europe. I...
  • Ranting About Rudy: Giuliani’s criticism of Obama has sparked fury—because it rings true.

    Former New York mayor Rudy GiulianiÂ’s statement about President ObamaÂ’s lack of love for America has set off a firestorm of denunciation. Giuliani has been accused of racism, and he has even received death threats. Defenders of Obama have evoked everything from his grandfatherÂ’s (on his motherÂ’s side) service in World War II to the two years GiulianiÂ’s father served in Sing Sing to prove either that Obama does love America or that Giuliani has no standing to issue such criticism. The ranting has obscured the reasons why so many Americans take GiulianiÂ’s remarks to heart. Starting with his June...

    Great job, Rudy Giuliani! The hero of Sept. 11, 2001 is the hero again. Rudy just said what tens of millions of Americans believe. Gee, I wonder why? Let me count the ways that would indicate to anyone who isn’t blind or a complete blithering idiot, that President Barack Obama doesn’t appear to love America, is “different” in his thinking than any other president, and certainly gives the strong impression his true feelings are anti-American, anti-Christian and anti-Israel. Before we get to exact quotes direct from Obama’s mouth in the past few surreal days, let’s start with the obvious. Is...

    "It hit a nerve," Rudy Giuliani observed about his widely reported insight that President Obama does not love America. Amid the uproar from the liberal media that anyone would dare question a liberal's patriotism, the former mayor of New York City is not backing away from his candid comment, telling the New York Times that "I said exactly what I wanted to say. I conveyed exactly the message that I wanted to convey." Giuliani's on-target comments hit the same nerve that has produced an uproar over the new Advanced Placement U.S. History Framework, which is teaching 500,000 of our brightest...

    Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan was more than a tad upset with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s criticism of President Barack Obama’s patriotism, saying in his Sunday sermon that Giuliani was a “privileged cracker” and a “devil.” “Giuliani says Obama does not love America,” Farrakhan said, “And instead of apologizing, they say he doubled down, he tripled down, he said, ‘I’m not taking this back. He didn’t grow up like we grew up.’” “How did you grow up, Giuliani?” asked Farrakhan. “A privileged cracker?” After that line got enormous applause, he added: “Or I should say, a...

    Is it possible that a reasonable person could think President Obama doesn’t love America? Well, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has faced heavy criticism for saying just that, but Giuliani isn’t crazy. His thoughts are usually well-collected. He is a Republican leader, and his opinion matters. That said, his comments aren’t helpful in today’s election context, and attacking Obama is generally off-message for Republicans who want to win in 2016, but Giuliani has a right to say what he thinks.

Barbara Boxer thought it was a good idea to jump into the pool and splash around in the stupid. Reverse-zing! We can at the very least give Boxer credit for addressing her tweet to Rudy Giuliani rather than to presumptive 2016 candidate and current frontrunner Gov. Scott Walker.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is being raked over the coals for saying he doesn't really believe the president loves America, and he probably didn't do himself or the Republican any favors by saying that.

And if the media loved our country, they’d tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about the man in the White House that would be our king, if we let him. Twenty seven different names, in twenty two states, with twenty one social security numbers that won’t even pass E-verify; that’s Barack.

Nowhere is that vitriol more on display than in a recent screed by the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank, who is upset that Walker refuses to engage in the mainstream (liberal) media’s standard game of “gotcha,” a game that is played only against Republican politicians.

I quickly read the piece and nodded to myself. Not only did Rudy have the communist right, but he even had Obama’s exact age (nine) right when he was first introduced to the communist.

    When Rudy Giuliani accused President Obama of not loving America, was he expressing a form of racism? If not, what was Giuliani saying? I have argued, controversially to some on the left, that it is important to grapple with ideas on their own terms before merely analyzing their motivations. American conservatism is historically intertwined with white racism in such a way that nearly any conservative idea could plausibly be understood as an appeal to racism, but most of those ideas can be expressed and justified in non-racial terms, and deserve to be taken at face value.

    Meanwhile, Walker, a leading Republican contender for the White House in 2016, said Saturday that he doesn't know whether Obama loves his country. 'You should ask the president what he thinks about America,' the Wisconsin governor told The Associated Press while in Washington for a weekend meeting of governors. 'I've never asked him so I don't know.' Democrats have assailed Giuliani for questioning the Democratic president's love of country, and they urged the potential field of Republican presidential candidates to rebuke Giuliani for his comments. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, another possible 2016 candidate, said he didn't think 'it helps to...

    He showed up unannounced and was initially not even invited, but he was prepared all the same. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and one-time Republican presidential hopeful, stepped to the microphone at the “21” Club in Manhattan on Wednesday, for an event ostensibly spotlighting Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin. But by suggesting that President Obama did not love his country, Mr. Giuliani became the story. His remarks, seemingly out of the blue, were not an isolated outburst....

    Rudy Giuliani is in the stocks for saying that he does not believe that President Barack Obama “loves America.” He said this at a small, private dinner for Scott Walker, who probably will not be inviting Giuliani to very many events in the near future. Giuliani went on to say that he wasn’t questioning the president’s patriotism — angels and ministers of grace defend us! — only noting that the president’s rhetoric is decidedly low-cal on the American exceptionalism but full-fat when it comes to criticism. It may be the case that the president is a practitioner of the Smokey...

    After reading and listening to all the upset coming from the Left over Rudy's assessment of the President of the United States, it struck me - how different things would be if Barack Hussein Obama had been America's Mayor instead of Rudy. Rudy Giuliani is still on the job, serving as America's Mayor. Below is a quote about Mayor Giuliani and his actions after 9-11 (written in the NYT - in an otherwise typical NYT's hit piece) on September 21, 2007: "Political leadership is an uncertain alchemy, an admixture of the symbolic and substantive and the visceral. In times of...

    Trying to explain his controversial comments that President Obama doesn’t love America, Rudy Giuliani said Friday that he believes the President has been influenced by communism and socialism. “Look, this man was brought up basically in a white family, so whatever he learned or didn’t learn, I attribute this more to the influence of communism and socialism” than to his race, Giuliani told the Daily News. “I don’t (see) this President as being particularly a product of African-American society or something like that. He isn’t,” the former mayor added. “Logically, think about his background. . . The ideas that are...

    Something striking on today's Morning Joe. On the one hand, there was complete consensus that—as a matter of politics—Rudy Giuliani made a huge mistake in claiming that President Obama doesn't love America. Panelists called his comments "stupid," "crazy," "tone deaf," even "racist." But remarkably, there was one thing that no one said: that as a matter of substance Rudy was wrong. No one made the case that President Obama really does love America in the way most Americans do.
