Yesterday, on an exclusive BlogTalkRadio conference call, Rudy Giuliani offered his thoughts on tomorrow’s presidential election, emphasizing why he feels Arizona Senator John McCain is the man for the job.
The former NYC mayor spoke with members of the “Just Say No Deal” Coalition, a team of Hillary Clinton supporters who held their final conference call before the election, and allowed the BlogTalkRadio community to tune in.
Among those ioining Giuliani were Florida Governor Charlie Christ, Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild and Larry Johnson of NoQuarterUSA.net
While on the call, Giuliani said why he feels a vote for Obama is risky for our country, which stemmed from Joe Biden’s remark that Barrack Obama will be tested:
“That was an extraordinary statement. Now Biden is trying to get out of it by saying well, every President is tested. Not correct. First of all, John F. Kennedy had far more experience than Barack Obama. No comparison. John Kennedy had traveled the world; Barack Obama has never been south of the border. John Kennedy had written on American history and American policy; Barack Obama has written about himself. And John Kennedy had been in the Senate more than twice as long as Barack Obama and held hearings to reform our labor laws; Barack Obama hasn’t done anything like that. So the comparison is a terrible one to start with.
“But the reality is, when we elect a President who *has* been tested, we don’t get tested. Nobody tested Dwight Eisenhower, and nobody tested Ronald Reagan. And nobody’s going to test John McCain. Because they know he’s ready for it. That doesn’t mean we don’t face risk under John McCain; of course we do. We’ve got terrorists out there who have terrible intentions toward us. But Joe Biden is telling us that we risk some kind of incident or attack with Barack Obama being elected. Now why the heck do we want to take that risk?”
The outspoken Guiliani also told listeners how he feels about vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin:
“I find Governor Palin to be very bright, very energetic, really a terrific person…. I like the idea that she has executive experience. She brings something to this that you really need. After all, she has more executive experience than Barack Obama and Joe Biden combined. They’ve never run a city, a state, a business, or a military unit. She’s done three out of four, and John McCain’s done the other. And she right now is the governor of a state where she’s one of the most effective governors in the country and one of the most popular governors in the country, and that’s where we usually look for our presidential candidates. So I think when people raise her qualifications, my answer is, gosh, if you’re worried about her qualifications, then you sure as heck can’t be voting for Barack Obama He has less experience than she has.”
There’s no mistaking which direction Rudy Guiliani is leaning!
