Giuliani: If This Was Bush, He Would Have Been Impeached By Now
Real Clear Politics ^ | June 17, 2010 | Staff

Posted on 06/17/2010 1:32:55 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

(VIDEO AT LINK)

Rudy Giuliani on MSNBC's "Morning Joe":

"Boy, you guys really give this guy a break that is beyond...They'd have been working on impeachment of Bush by now. If Bush were the president and handled it this way, there'd be like a movement to throw him out of office." "Just try to be fair."

Mika Brzezinski asks Giuliani "What would you do?"

"I know exactly what I would have done. The first thing I would have done is to bring in outside experts who knew as much or more about this than BP because I wouldn't trust just BP to run it for me. I wouldn't want my fate, the fate of my people, the fate of the southern part of this country in the hands of BP. I would have gone and I'd have called up the people you're talking about, the people I talked about the other night. Are there people that are better than BP, I would have asked. The answer is "yes." Are there people that are far better than BP? Yes. Is BP good at this? No. Then give me the people that are the best. After all, I'm the President of the United States or the Mayor of New York City. You can get anything you want.(continued)

If Bush had obama’s resume, he couldn’t get elected to dog catcher. Obama has his path cleared for him and once in office has multiple circles of defense around him. There are way too many groups that have a vested interest in obama being the acting president.

Rudy was just on with Neil Cavuto and he said the president has produced a lot of the problems and that he should pay for some of them.

I know Rudy isn’t the favorite here, but I’d sure feel a hell of a lot better with him in the White House right now.

That’s not likely to happen. Obummer will hide behind his race and many whites will feel too guilty over things they had no part in to call BS.

How about temporarily suspending the Jones Act?

...or implementing the government's plan to surround the oil with fireproof boom and burn it while it was still concentrated in a small area, as put in place in 1994.

Rudy could have won if he’d just changed his position on abortion. A Republican CANNOT be pro-death and be elected.

Of course - any crime - and what we see going on is criminal - Rudy can handle, that’s his MO. Where are those other guys the purists wanted - I can’t hear them.

Agreed. I tried to toe the line during the Rudy purge BUT I steadfastly maintained that Reagan and Rudy were the only two politicians that I ever saw make a difference with my own eyes.

Are there people that are better than BP, I would have asked. The answer is "yes." Are there people that are far better than BP? Yes. Is BP good at this? No. Then give me the people that are the best.

And just who are those Rudy ? Deep sea drilling is cutting edge technology, experts in the field aren't hanging around the corner store looking for work.

I thought all along that Rudy should’ve gotten the nom in 08.

But he dressed like a woman at a party, has an ex-wife and expressed a belief in states rights, even if that manifest is gay marriage or all manner of social liberalism on the state level.

Good thing we dodged that bullet. /s

Rudy was also vehemently anti-gun, and stated back in the 90s that illegal aliens were a "benefit" to the country.

He's a corrupt northeast greaseball who would soil our Republic. Thankfully, he will be a footnote in history.

Will the has-been that is Rudy 911 just crawl back to his consulting practice of overcharging governments?

Nevertheless, even Giussolini is correct every now and then. This is one of those times.

Christie was a pleasant surprise to say the least. Thought he was a RINO. Turns out he was a rhino. Dude’s a beast.

So because the man refused to pull a Romney and pretend to be something he isn’t for something he would have little control over changing we are stuck with Obama because people refused to vote for the best candidate over this one issue...... How is that better?

I really, really, really, want to see him debate Obama or Biden. That would be the stuff of legend. I fondly remember Cheney taking Lieberman to the woodshed and he was ruthless with Edwards. You could tell Cheney let up a little ecause he liked Lieerman ut he clearly hated Edwards.

But Christie vs one of those two idiots????The mind cannot comprehend the epic beatdown.

Christie is an ethical, intelligent man, who actually knows our constitution (its his paternal Scots-Irish ancestry, they seem to have a congenital understanding of our ancestral rights), and who doesn't pretend to be anything other than he does. Rudy is an unethical greaseball who plays tough even though he came from an upper middle class suburban community.

There is no one who believes strongly about how abhorent abortion is than me, but it also didn’t check my common sense at the door. I saw what Rudy did FOR NYC and how he reacted after 911, the man is a leader... and he saw the same leadership in Christie, which is why he helped push Christie forward to run and look at the job he is doing over in NJ...oh, and if there is any question that Rudy had a whole lot to do with the NYC turnaround, look at how Bloomberg has screwed it up! I guarantee you Rudy wouldn’t be encouraging Muslims to build a mosque by ground zero.

Well, I saw what he did for NYC and I see what Bloomie has done to it since Rudy left and I’ll take Rudy over the majority of politicians out there today.
