Rudy Giuliani is back in the public eye this past week after speaking at the Iranian-American Community symposium in Phoenix, Arizona earlier this month. The event titled “Countering Islamic Fundamentalism, and a Nuclear-Armed Iran” featured the former New York City mayor who came out blasting President Obama’s handling of Middle East foreign relations.
Speaking with rage at times, Mr. Giuliani hammered the President by comparing him to the way former President Jimmy Carter handled the Iranian hostage crisis stating all it took was for a President Reagan to be “sworn in to get those hostages back.”
A few days after making this fiery speech, Giuliani came out swinging again. This time speaking at a private dinner in Manhattan that featured potential 2016 Republican candidate Scott Walker. His quote “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America” has made huge waves all over the media of late.
These remarks have provoked criticism from other Republicans such as another potential 2016 candidate, Rand Paul, who said it was a “mistake to question people’s motives. It’s one thing to disagree on policy” said Paul, but Paul isn’t interested in questioning whether or not Obama is a “good or bad American”. And while the President’s foreign policy may be making the U.S. less safe, Paul didn’t think it was a constructive argument to the debate the question of whether or not he is “well intentioned.”
One thing is for sure, Rudy Giuliani can still make waves in the national debate. His remarks are now being discussed all over the web and anyone who is even thinking about running for President in 2016 better be ready to have a response to them.
