It’s been a couple of days since Rudy Giuliani made his asinine statements about President Obama not “Loving America”. As absurd Giuliani’s comments were, the potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates still managed to stumble their way thru this.
In a time when the 2016 Republican presidential field rail against Obama for leadership, they all missed the boat to show leadership when asked about Giuliani’s comments
“The gist of what Mayor Giuliani said – that the President has shown himself to be completely unable to speak the truth about the nature of the threats from these ISIS terrorists- is true,”
“If you are looking for someone to condemn the Mayor, look elsewhere.” – Governor Bobby Jindal
“The mayor can speak for himself,”
“I’m not going to comment on what the president thinks or not. He can speak for himself as well.” – Governor Scott Walker
You can’t expect to win in a general election simply pandering to the extremist and this goes for both Conservatives and Liberals. This was a moment for Governor Walker to set himself apart from the rest of the field. Instead he fell flat on his face and scrambling to backtrack on his initial comments.
So far Senator Marco Rubio has given the best response to all this nonsense….
I don’t feel like I’m in a position to have to answer for every person in my party that makes a claim. Democrats aren’t asked to answer every time Joe Biden says something embarrassing, so I don’t know why I should answer every time a Republican does. I’ll suffice it to say that I believe the President loves America; I think his ideas are bad.
Honestly folks, it’s not that difficult!
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
