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:
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.
