Giuliani Slamdunks Mr. Clinton
Rudy Giuliani slamdunks former Pres. Clinton for his soft shoe approach to the terrorist bombing of the World Trade Center in the 1990s. Then he let loose on the Dems since they seem to be pretty laid back about the war on terror themselves. The actual words he used were "weakness and naivete" when it comes to dealing with the terrorists.
Giuliani told about 650 business people that terrorists didn't hit the
U.S. for the first time in 2001. It was 1993. Just because they did not
succeed does not mean they didn't try. He accused Clinton of treating
the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center as a criminal act instead of a
terrorist attack. Apparently, Clinton's big comeback on that attack was
to say that it was a "big mistake" instead of really acting on it. After
that, terrorist attacks occurred at the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia,
in Kenya and Tanzania and on the USS Cole.
Guiliani stated that with those attacks, Clinton did nothing. Bin Laden declared war and Clinton didn't hear it. He is suggesting that the current Dem candidates are wanting what Clinton wanted, to go back, to relive the past instead of going forward and dealing with the threat.
In the past, Guiliani has defended Clinton but now he is saying that the Dem Pres. candidates are giving up on the war and giving the terrorists the U.S. timetable to retreat.
That would be a major mistake, speaking of big mistakes. It is time to have someone fresh in the White House. We do NOT need another Clinton. By the way, I do not think we need Mr. Guiliani either. It's a real toss-up right now. If I were to pick my front runner for President, it would be former Senator Fred Thompson. After that, more than likely it would be Mr. McCain. I have no other picks. If either of them does not get the nomination, I have no idea why I would vote except to vote against Clinton or Obama.
