Come Back, Rudy Giuliani.

(ThyBlackMan.com) “Many of you have been in the room when the President has delivered speeches where he’s talked about his love for this country, or how the United States is a force for good in the world. In fact, it (the US) is the greatest force for good that the world has ever seen. I could sit here and cite many examples of remarks like that from him, both in this country and around the world. More generally, I can tell you that it’s sad to see when somebody who’s attained a certain level of public stature and even admiration tarnishes that legacy so thoroughly. And the truth is, I don’t take any joy or vindication or satisfaction from that. I think really – the only thing that I feel is… I feel sorry for Rudy Giuliani today.”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest made that comment about former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Friday during his press briefing. I take no satisfaction from Mr. Giuliani’s verbal quagmire, either. I like him. I’ve long respected him. That’s why I’m so disappointed. I want/need Rudy to come back. Back to his senses.

At a private dinner held Wednesday night for 2016 presidential candidate Scott Walker (R) in NYC, Mr. Giuliani said this to those in attendance: “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.” Jinkies! Rudolph William Louis Giuliani, you know better. You’re a businessman – but your comments weren’t made in good faith or best business practices. You’re an attorney – but your comments were made entirely on opinion and conjecture, not on hard evidence. rudy-giuliani

You’re a politician and contributor to the Fox News Channel – yet you failed to heed the hard lessons learned previously by your fellow Republican colleagues like Rand Paul, Mitt Romney, and President George Bush: live mics lead to spikes of ill will and bad press. Politicians – like physicians – are supposed to act and speak on the foundation of one singular phrase: “First, do no harm.” Mr. Giuliani, you not only harmed your own political reputation – but you also potentially harmed the political reputation of Wisconsin’s Governor simply because he was there. Think before you speak. Words matter.

Rudy’s out in the cold. Frostbitten by his own words.

How Mr. Rudy Giuliani came to be in this dark and desolate place is itself one of the biggest American political mysteries of the past 30 years or so. Politically speaking, he used to be a contender. But, alas – never has one elected leader in such a great place, with so much good will behind him done so little and fallen so flat. In my own not-so-humble opinion, being the Mayor of New York City is easily comparable to being the Governor of a large American state. Mr. Giuliani not only served NYC, he served NYC successfully. Although the tragic events of 9/11 occurred on his watch, Mr. Giuliani more than rose to the occasion. Globally, Rudy was seen as the man with a plan. In the months and years following September 11th, Mr. Giuliani was universally hailed as a hero. How Rudy didn’t become a Congressman or a Senator remains a marinated riddle wrapped inside of a chargrilled mystery, served piping hot with a side of paradox sauce.

The Honorable Rudy Giuliani had his eye on a much bigger prize. He wanted to be POTUS. There’s nothing at all wrong with that. This is America – where dreams come true. However, the phrase “failure to launch” best describes Mr. Giuliani’s unsuccessful presidential bid in 2008. Being a Vladimir Putin fan hasn’t helped Rudy, either.

That the once great and powerful Rudy Giuliani has been reduced to being a bastion of racially coded language and dog whistle politics is a travesty. That the legacy of the man affectionately known Rudy – who served as Mayor of the most culturally diverse mega-city on earth – is falling apart at the seams is a tragedy.

Rudy Giuliani used to be consistently sought out by President Bush, and rightfully so. Rudy is now deliberately ignored by President Obama. Also rightfully so.

Mr. Giuliani, do you like pie? I hope so, because having a Brooklyn-sized slice of humble pie is the only way out of this mess you’re in. Sincerely apologize to the President, to NYC, to the American people, and to yourself. Do that today! Don’t delay.

Fix this before the entire GOP gets dragged into your quicksand. Do what’s right.

Mr. Giuliani, you’re not a racist, a grumpy old man, or a loose cannon. Stop acting as if you are. Come back, Rudy. Back to higher ground.

    One thing I learned from a very wise former political boss in Las Vegas was this one tidbit. He said “power never leaves quietly”. The more you see people like Giuliani pining hard for relevance by making outrageous statements, it only serves as evidence that their time and relevance has long gone. They’re taking their last gasp of air as they sink beneath the waterline of a changing world. Their cries will get louder, their screams will become desperate and their claims more outrageous. It is the life cycle of a dying breed. The one major thing that President Obama, who is not without reason to be critiqued, has done is that he’s played a skillful game of chess while everyone has been playing checkers.

    IF people would simply learn to read JEWISH and ISRAELI newspapers you would know who GULIANI was directing his comments too.

    THE control center of AMERICAN politics is IN TEL AVIV and not WASHINGTON D.C, GULIANI’S statements were made for their consumption not ours , he’s simply auditioning for OBAMA’S job.

    BELOW is a link to the ISRAELI newspaper ISRAEL HAYOM which GULIANI is giving a interview on this subject, the newspaper is owned by billionaire SHELDON ALDESON who also owns all of the REPUBLICAN candidates in the upcoming presidential elections.

    ALSO OBAMA has better watch his step here because these people are exceedingly dangerous and it is not beyond these peoples ability to assassinate a sitting president in fact they’ve threatened OBAMA once before, but for right now BIBI thinks he can overpower him politically, because all OBAMA has on his side now is his V.P and a few little punk black DEMOCRATS and they’re no match for the JEWS awesome political power!

    I am a writer for this site also. Please read my article soon to be published entitled President Obama Loves This Country. I enjoyed your article and it echoes some of the same sentiments I stated in mine. I must say that Republicans like Giuliani will never be satisfied with anything the President does because they did not want him in the office in the first place. Too bad because the majority of voters did, not once but twice. And Giuliani has become a washed up pseudo-candidate noise-maker who has just made it even harder for his party to win the White House.

    Personal insults that question the President’s love or patriotism have not worked in two elections and they will not work now either. Giuliani has both branded and embarrassed himself.

    I HOPE YOUR READERS WILL READ MY ARTICLE AS WELL because it parallels yours and dissects Giuliani’s argument. President Obama uses diplomacy while too many others like Giuliani would rather offend an entire religion by lumping them all together, bully them and then start a war. No more Bush fake wars please.

    Paralyzed Veterans for America stated recently that 50,000 injured military came home from Afghanistan and/or Iraq. The American Legion stated there are 22 veteran suicides a day – a day people. We have a President who reaches across the aisle to congress but gets his hand slapped. We have a President who tries to build bridges around the world instead of new enemies or greater hatred for this country. We have a President who understand diplomacy, tact, wisdom in the terminology you use, discretion and that everybody does not fit in the same basket.

    Ironically I am NOT a Democrat. I am a social and fiscal conservative African-American who votes for the most qualified person. In both elections I believe that was Obama.

    President Obama’s comments about fundamentally changing this country were clearly to say we cannot continue to do “business as usual”. He ran on a platform of CHANGE so that is nothing new Mr. Giuliani. As for the apologies around the world for the actions of the Unites States, they are necessary and long overdue. This country has done some treacherous things through covert actions and foreign policy and even Stevie Wonder could see that (no disrespect to Stevie).

    I suggest Mr. Giuliani find something else to do to feel relevant other than making personal insults. The President has outlined a plan to fight ISIS but Giuliani is not attacking ISIS because he is too busy attacking the President. Mr. Giuliani what is your plan? Oops, I’m sorry, you did not win the Presidency Mr. Giuliani. So why am I asking you?

  5. Ford says:

    …Your right Mr. Jones the comment was seemingly a little harsh but not inaccurate. Obama said he was out to fundamentally change this country. So there you go. Doesn’t love the country as it is. So… lets use race baiting at every turn. Use the hammer of government police power to FUCK YOU UP if you disagree (IRS). Throw you in jail for making a video that doesn’t kiss muslim ass and use it to cover your ass for not protecting our people in foreign lands. Open the borders to any and all to guarantee your party will remain in power forever. Accuse Christians of crusading hundreds of years ago and being responsible for slavery meaning Christians are no better than ISIS. Could be he really does love the country… it’s just Christians of European extraction he has a problem with.
