Because everybody knows Rudy Giuliani flew to Afghanistan after the 9/11 and went cave to cave until he put a bullet in Osama bin Laden’s head. His claim that Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy was worse than George W. Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina holds weight, right?

Speaking at a Mitt Romney campaign office in Florida yesterday, Giuliani said: “[Obama] right now is doing a terrible job of disaster relief in my city, but no one is talking about it.. People don’t have water, they don’t have food, electricity and his FEMA is no where to be found. This is a worse response than Katrina.” Worse than Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina?

I wonder if Chris Christie can co-sign that claim.

Maybe I’m getting old, but I don’t remember seeing people standing on rooftops crying for help for at least a week like they did in New Orleans on my television. Not that I was there, but I’d think my mother, my brothers, and my oldest daughter who live in NYC would have told me about that.

But don’t tell that to Giuliani, who went on to make the same claim on FOX News in an interview with Neil Cavuto.

I think maybe because there’s an election going on, people don’t want to say that, but I think FEMA has dropped the ball, certainly as big they did with Katrina, maybe bigger because they had more warning here and the situation isn’t as big as Katrina.

Watch it here:

Yes Rudy, we get it; we all know that you were the 7th member of Seal Team 6. Jesus Christ, how dare we forget that you were the mayor of New York City when the Twin Towers fell. And yes, New York is “your city,” and this makes you the benchmark for emergency management, how?

Say anything to get a Cabinet position should Romney win, right Rudy?

Look, I’ve already discussed some of the ridiculous statements made by right-wingers in the wake of Hurricane Sandy (read here). Yes, and as such, there’s no real need for me to go into any detail. Nor is there any need for a long dissertation to address Rudy’s claim and call it anything other than what it was: bullshit. The truth is, we’re at the eleventh hour; and. the Republican Party elites are desperate. And as evidenced by Romney’s campaign and his “say anything to get elected” strategy.

As insulting as it is to voters, it’s important to understand that the tactic has worked to Romney’s advantage. And why has it worked? Well, without stating the obvious, let’s just say that there are a lot of idiots voting for Mitt. Oh, you don’t believe me? OK, well checkout the following interviews.

Ohio Romney supporters:

  • Yeah ever since Guiliani finally cut off that ridiculous combover he’s been saying some really stupid shit.

    Just once I’d like to see someone interview someone at one of Mitt Romney’s rallys that has a full set of teeth or at least more than a third grade education. Just listening to these folks it’s amazing to me that we’re the supposed leader of the free world.

    Just once I’d like to hear one of these people say “I don’t like him because he’s a nigger”. Why don’t they feel like they can tell the truth?!? After all, it’s America right?!? If they believe that, say that then.

  • Researchers at NASA studying the effects of climate change forecast a tropical storm that would do this devastation 10 years in advance, but it pales in comparison to the blunders of the Bush Administration with FEMA and Hurricane Katrina, honestly Obama was at ground zero much quicker than Bush ever was, and the impact bi-partisan Obama actually showcased was way better than Bush’s party stumbling all through the talk of a man-made disaster.
    Guiliani is a fossil and party first politician, and I welcome his demise.
    You ca forecast it, but when you staple things such as houses along shorelines and mountainous regions that are suspect to the effects of climate change, no amount ahead of time is going the change the effects. You just have to do the best you can to contain the chances of disaster, thats where Hurricane Katrina F’ed-Up.
