Rudy Guiliani is an idiot, and thinks you are, too

I don't know which is worse; that Rudy Giuliani might actually believe the following statement, or that he thinks that you will:

"We had no domestic attacks under Bush. We’ve had one under Obama."
Giuliani to George Stephanopoulos on GMA on 1/07/10.  (YouTube here.  Check the 30-second mark.)

Rudy, I guess you and the guy wearing the scowl were talking about the Yankees in this photo?



And another thing: While I personally don't count failed attempts as "attacks," maybe you've heard of this before:



It'll be interesting to see how long it takes Rudy's lie to become "accepted fact" amongst the American Right.

Seriously? Given the Harry Reid debacle, is this really the best time to start cataloging inadvertent or careless political sound bites? Guiliani clearly doesn't believe there were no domestic attacks under President Bush. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_gRPK5aPrE

chmeredith - The "Harry Reid debacle?" Come on. Next you're going to try to tell me Trent Lott was just trying to make an old man feel good. As for Giuliani, sure he's going to try to backpedal now and say he meant "after Sept. 11th." But now the fool says Ft. Hood was a terrorist attack. Well, he then goes on to blame the Obama Administration for missing "warning signs" that AROSE UNDER BUSH: http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/11/19/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry5709004.shtml

The point is not which political party has made the most careless statements. The point is that blowing them out of all proportion is petty and pointless. Sure Reid said something stupid, but I really don't care. I think the GOP response is petty and pointless. The question is this: are you contending that Giuliani truly believes that there were no terrorist attacks under Bush? Is that what you're saying?

chmeredith - I think that's what he wants others to believe.

Then why would he get back on national television mere days later to unequivocally state that he doesn't believe it? I think you want him to want others to believe it because that would make him truly delusional, which he plainly isn't.
