I saw Rudy Giuliani yesterday on This Week with George Stephanopoulas and it was disturbing how glib and smarmy he can be.
It also is a shame that you have to go outside of the United States to get honest appraisal of our own Presidential candidates. However, Channel 4 in the UK has a great piece on what a disengenuous person Guiliani is. Remember, Giuliani thinks Bernie Kerik is a great guy. Here is a brief snippet from the Channel 4 UK piece.
“At Ground Zero today they are still digging the foundations for the new freedom tower. Before 9-11 the one thing Giuliani had done was to build himself, right next to this site, an emergency command centre”
“Giuliani spent $60m on the command centre in the World Trade Centre. He installed a humidor for his cigars, monogrammed towels in bathroom, even had private elevator which was handy when he brought his mistress here at the weekends. But he also installed a 600 gallon fuel tank which meant that when burning debris hit the building it went up like a blowtorch”
“So Giuliani found himself wandering the streets because he had ignored advice to put his command centre safely underground in Brooklyn. Insisting instead it had to be near City hall.”
It is a scary thing that this is the best that the Republican party can come up with for candidates.
