I don’t have any use for Giuliani on foreign policy or social issues. I was furious with him when he grandstanded on the blowback issue against Ron Paul. This reply to his critics is fraught with problems as well, but at least he stood by and defended what he said and didn’t back down. Most Republicans quickly cower when faced with this kind of criticism from the MSM. He also was one of the few who got Ferguson right when he said Wilson’s case should have never even been brought to the grand jury in the first place, and he stood by that statement and other not so PC statements when the liberal media started to howl. Whatever you may think of Giuliani on the issues, at least we know he is a man with a pair of testicles, unlike most whimpering Republicans.
I think what Giuliani said initially about Obama not loving America was unwise because it gave the left-wing hysterics a rallying point, but there is some truth to the idea that liberals don’t actually love what America was and depending on how liberal still is. It just has to be said with some nuance. They love an imaginary idea of what they want America to be at some point in the future. Conservatives, on the other hand, love an America that was or depending on how conservative still is but is in danger of dying. Of course, Giuliani babbling about the left-wing American Exceptionalism myth doesn’t make that case, but the general Gestalt of was vs can be is still there.
