This just gets more fun by the day.
From an AP report today:
“The Democrats want to go back to a pre-September 11th view of terrorism … The Democrats, led by Barack Obama, want to go back to being on defense,” Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor and top McCain surrogate said Wednesday, a day after McCain’s campaign claimed Obama is naive and “a perfect manifestation a September 10th mind-set.”
So suddenly Rudy Giuliani has become Johnny’s McCain’s top surrogate on national security?
Let’s go back and see what Johnny had to say about Rudy in September of last year…
“I think the nation respects the mayor’s leadership after 9/11, and I do, too, and I think he displayed leadership at a time that Americans needed some steady hand, and I think that his conduct was very laudatory following 9/11,” Mr. McCain said, when asked why so many voters identify Mr. Giuliani with the issue of terrorism.
But he went on to say: “I don’t think it translates, necessarily, into foreign policy or national security expertise. I know of nothing in his background that indicates that he has any experience in it, with him or Romney.”
And we know of nothing, Senator McCain, that would indicate that you have any experience in it, either. Unless, of course, four and a half years spent in a prisoner of war camp count as national security experience. We think that’s laudatory and all, but it does not quite translate.
On another note, is it just me or is it becoming more and more obvious that Mr. McCain is having difficulty remembering what he said in the recent past? Either his memory is slipping or he’s a lying political opportunist. In either case, I don’t think we want to entrust him with the highest office in the land… particularly after we are just finishing up with another lying political opportunist in that position.
