Rudy Giuliani Says Voting Republican Is The Only Safe Bet

Rudy Giuliani told a crowd at Rockingham County Lincoln Day Dinner Tuesday, if a Democrat is elected, then expect to go back to a pre 9/11 mentality. “I listen a little to the Democrats and if one of them gets elected, we are going on defense,” Giuliani said. “We will wave the white flag on Iraq. We will cut back on the Patriot Act, electronic surveillance, interrogation and we will be back to our pre-Sept. 11 attitude of defense.” He went on to say, “The Democrats do not understand the full nature and scope of the terrorist war against us.” But of course, if a Republican, and especially Giuliani was elected then the whole world would be safe from terrorist, because, “If any Republican is elected president, and I think obviously I would be the best at this, we will remain on offense and will anticipate what the terrorists will do and try to stop them before they do it,” Giuliani said. “This war ends when they stop coming here to kill us!” Giuliani said in his speech. “Never, ever again will this country ever be on defense waiting for terrorists to attack us if I have anything to say about it. And make no mistake, the Democrats want to put us back on defense!” The crowd at the dinner roared with approval, but others have attacked Giuliani for playing the politics of fear. “Rudy Giuliani today has taken the politics of fear to a new low, and I believe Americans are ready to reject those kind of politics,” Barack Obama said in a statement. “America’s mayor should know that when it comes to 9/11 and fighting terrorists, America is united. We know we can win this war based on shared purpose, not the same divisive politics that question your patriotism if you dare to question failed policies that have made us less secure.” Also, Keith Olbermann attacked Giuliani on his show. I guess if all Giuliani has to run on is being the mayor of New York on the day that it was attacked by terrorist, then the politics of fear might be all he has. It’s pretty extreme to suggest that Republicans have the answers when it comes to terrorist. Since Bush began his war on terror, acts of terror have increased, and Giuliani just offers more of the same. They both want to fight a war against terror. But, at whose cost, and to whose profit?
