Rudy Guiliani is joining a long list of Republicans trying to rewrite history.
The amazing thing is that their lies are so blatant that only someone who has been in a coma for the last 9 years could believe them.
A few days ago Guiliani actually said the following:
“We had no domestic attacks under Bush; we’ve had one under Obama”.
Nice try Rudy. Rudy seems to have conveniently forgotten 9/11 and the shoe bomber, Richard Reid.
His comments follow those of Dana Perino, former White House Press Secretary, in November when she appeared on FOX and said ”We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term”.
In December Mary Matalin, former senior adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney said ”We inherited a recession from President Clinton and we inherited the most tragic attack on our own soil in our nation’s history”. 9/11 occurred 8 months into the Bush administration after he received a briefing that Al ..continue reading
Rudy Guiliani was interviewed by John King on CNN’s State of the Union today and said “I think Sarah Palin is great for the Republican Party”.

I don’t know which Republican party Guiliani is referring to when he talks about Palin. It is certainly not the supposedly inclusive party that listens to all Republican voices. Michael Steele, the RNC chairman, made that very clear about a week ago when he basically told Republicans to get in line behind the right wing conservative marching orders or ..continue reading

Many have a larger than life image of Guiliani because he was featured in every paper and on almost every TV station in the Country after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in NYC.
The Rudy most New Yorkers know have other memories too. Although he was a tough prosecutor before he was elected Mayor and publicly presented an image of fairness and equality one of his first acts after being elected was to try to sweep house at many City agencies and replace managers with his cronies.
After the attacks Guilani tried to convince the NY State legislature and then Governor Pataki to allow him to run for a third term in spite of term limits. He also tried to convince the candidates running for mayor to allow him to continue to serve up to an additional 6 months. His ..continue reading
