How GOP 2016ers Responded To Giuliani’s Comments That Obama Doesn’t Love America

Here is how the different Republican 2016 candidates responded to Giuliani’s assertion that Barack Obama doesn’t love his country, according to NBC News.

Bush: “Governor Bush doesn’t question President Obama’s motives. He does question President Obama’s disastrous policies.” – per Bush’s spokeswoman

Graham: “I have no doubt that he loves his country. I have no doubt that he’s a patriot. But his primary job as president of the United States is to defend this country and he’s failing miserably.” – to ABC

Jindal: “The gist of what Mayor Giuliani said — that the President has shown himself to be completely unable to speak the truth about the nature of the threats from these terrorists – is true,” Jindal said in a statement. “If you are looking for someone to condemn the mayor, look elsewhere.”

Paul: “I think it’s a mistake to question people’s motives. It’s one thing to disagree on policy.”

Rubio: “Democrats aren’t asked to answer every time Joe Biden says something embarrassing. So I don’t know why I should answer every time a Republican does. I will suffice it to say that I believe the president loves America. I just think his ideas are bad.

Walker: “Yeah, I mean, the mayor can speak for himself. I’m not going to comment on whether — what the president thinks or not. He can speak for himself as well. I’ll tell you, I love America.” – to CNBC.

  1. It’s actually nice to see most of them distance themselves from Giuliani’s comments. This idea that Obama is less of an American than Republicans is the one that I believe is the most vile. I’m so tired of hearing it and it amazes me that Giuliani is in any position to speak on things like this given his history.

    On another subject … you reblogged a post about ISIS wanting to target American malls. In my other life, I write fiction. Seven years ago I started writing a novel about an Islamic terrorist group that started attacking America in smaller, more random attacks … kind of like the mall attack plan. I got about halfway through it and got bogged down. Some day I’ll return to it, but the terrorist group is going to be tax protesting, white supremacist, tea party whackos.

  2. Rookies and Rummies running to the left of Rudy’s resentments and regret. Many things wrong with american politics, but what I’ve noticed lately: no one, but no one, has the ability, the vocabulary, or the acumen, to articulate or address grievance. And that ain’t good.
