Politico Stretches On Giuliani Remarks

8

Some may even call it ‘lying’, but the website reports that Rudy talked about how electing a Dem President means a ‘new 9/11.’

Read this story and tell me if you can find Rudy suggesting anything like that.

I certainly didn’t…

The former New York City mayor, currently leading in all national polls for the Republican nomination for president, said Tuesday night that America would ultimately defeat terrorism no matter which party gains the White House.

“But the question is,” Giuliani said, “how long will it take and how many casualties will we have? If we are on defense (with a Democratic president,) we will have more losses and it will go on longer.â€Â?

“I listen a little to the Democrats and if one of them gets elected, we are going on defense,� Giuliani continued. “We will wave the white flag on Iraq. We will cut back on the Patriot Act, electronic surveillance, interrogation and we will be back to our pre-Sept. 11 attitude of defense.�

He added: “The Democrats do not understand the full nature and scope of the terrorist war against us.�

Now, I won’t excuse his hacky attempt to paint the Dems as weak on defense, but he certainly didn’t suggest that voting in a Dem president would bring about a ‘new 9/11.’ He said they didn’t understand the war on terrorism and that we’d have more casulaties as a result. And it certainly appears to me that he’s talking about the global war…not getting hit at home.

I don’t know…maybe you can find something I didn’t, but considered me disappointed with Politico’s spin on this one.

UPDATE:
Well, well, well…looks like Drudge has picked up the title of the article as his main headline: GIULIANI WARNS OF ‘NEW 9/11’ IF DEMS WIN

Did he read the article either?
