How dare Rudy Giuliani utter what everyone else knows!
Rudy Giuliani went straight for the jugular Wednesday night during a private group dinner here featuring Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by openly questioning whether President Barack Obama “loves America.”
The former New York mayor, speaking in front of the 2016 Republican presidential contender and about 60 right-leaning business executives and conservative media types, directly challenged Obama’s patriotism, discussing what he called weak foreign policy decisions and questionable public remarks when confronting terrorists.
“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani said during the dinner at the 21 Club, a former Prohibition-era speakeasy in midtown Manhattan. “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”
He should have skipped the qualifier about it being a horrible thing to say. It’s the truth. If Obama cared anything at all he’d acknowledge radical Islamic terrorism.
They’re burning and beheading victims in the name of Islam, but President Obama delivered a major speech Wednesday on combating violent extremism — while refusing to use the words “Muslim terrorists.”
“No religion is responsible for terrorism — people are responsible for violence and terrorism,” Obama told a crowd that included Muslim community leaders at the White House.
Following months of unrelenting atrocities by ISIS killers who released videos of themselves beheading US journalists and, most recently, 21 Coptic Christians, and burning a man alive, the president kowtowed to the audience by proclaiming that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.”
He’s delusional. Meanwhile, regarding Giuliani’s remarks, National Journal’s Ron Fournier, among others, may need smelling salts. Here we go:
When opposing somebody's views spills into questioning their patriotism, you've sacrificed your seriousness, Mr Mayor http://t.co/c2uMDPS1iL

Oops. Telling the harsh truth now makes one a “lunatic”:
Sad to see what a lunatic Rudy Giuliani has turned into. http://t.co/4rOBvdASNL

Update: Giuliani explained himself further this morning, not that the pants-wetting media lefties will bother to listen.
