Katrina didn't respond to Hurricane Sandy at all.
 
2012-11-05 11:28:41 AM
This is the same doofus who said that America had no terrorist attacks under Bush's watch.

He's got a good point. I like that song "Walking on Sunshine" far more than I like hurricane relief.

They've been dating. Most of those pictures were taken during a lunch date at Bennigan's.

Now with more Rudy.

Good trolling Rudy. I give you a 9 out of 11.

We all knew the whargarbl would be wild and wooly today. It'll be a derp hurricane to make Sandy look like a spring shower.

Giuliani has become no better that Rush, Hannity, and Coulter. A hack who gets paid to say whatever nonsense republitards with eat up.

Good times.

I think Bush shot down more than one airline by closing our airspace for so long.

I imagine those on Staten Island agree with him.  Doesn't make it so.  But I bet they agree.

What a partisan douchebag.

Rudy could have left a decent legacy for himself if he had kept his mouth shut after leaving office.
 
2012-11-05 01:19:02 PM
He did such an awful job that his poll numbers went up.
 
2012-11-05 01:23:22 PM
Don't be so quick to dismiss Rudy. The man knows his disasters.

Obviously there was 9/11, then came Katrina, and next was his presidential run.

Marcus Aurelius: Chris Christie begs to differ.


That's precisely why Giuliani said what he said. The Republicans think it damaged their man to have the country -- and, especially Chris Christie -- approve of the job Obama is doing, so they have to create a counter narrative. Especially in Florida.

So, the Romney campaign, I suspect, put Giuliani up to this. Why do you think he first made the comments at a Romney campaign office IN FLORIDA? And, of course, being the sleazy, worthless partisan that he is, he jumped at the chance.

Yes, Rudy. Please tell us about poor handling of emergencies. You should know something about it through your own glaring failures at it. Chief among them, relocating the emergency response command center in the World Trade Center in 1997, even though your director of emergency management recommended that you not put it there because it had been a target in 1993.

Noun, verb, 9/11.

As a New Yorker, I have to agree. Nobody wanted to crap on Rudy at the time, but he had a number of security failures in regards to 9/11. His expert advisers told him one thing, and he decided to go a different direction. His legacy was fine though, and he shouldn't have poked at it. He became a Republican shill, and now the rose-colored glasses are coming off.

I worked for a Wall Street firm (Weiss, Peck & Greer at 1 NY Plaza) for 5 years, and had dozens of friends/co-workers who lived and live on Staten Island. I haven't seen a one of them complain about Obama relating to Hurricane Sandy over social media.

People forget that on 9/10 Rudy was probably the most hated man in NYC.

Can someone please find the Daily Show screenshot of numeral "9" having sex with "11"? Been looking for ages.

I like the way that the right portrays Obama as a man who is simultaneously completly ineffectual, AND single-handedly ruining the country.

"Obama can't accomplish anything!"
followed by
"If we reelect Obama, he'll be able to ruin this nation!"
 
2012-11-05 01:57:42 PM
Good money is on him retracting his statement on the 7th.

CigaretteSmokingMan: People forget that on 9/10 Rudy was probably the most hated man in NYC.


I don't
He's just another of a long line of Italian-Americans who have insinuated themselves into politics for fun and profit.
Corrupt as a can of maggots, and dirtier than Lohan's skivvies.
Now, as far as his worth as a human being goes. . . I'd put him to the same test any real American would. Can he shovel shait and pull teat as good as any Messkin immigrant?
Sure he can do both, metaphorically, but can he actually put the callouses on his hands?
Of course not. He's never worked a day in his life.

I'm going to be so happy when the partisan electoral BS is over and we can finally get on to the inevitable War On Christmas.

Giuliani once garnered some level of respect but ever since his joke of a campaign where his platform was only 9/11 he has become a joke of a derper on the same level as breitbart's rotting corpse.

All Presidents get blamed for insufficient disaster relief after major natural disasters. Looks to me like Obama is going to get lucky though and the unfair blame will mostly occur after the election.

crab66: I can't believe I ever liked this guy.


He wasn't bad before the national office ambitions. He may have been a dimwit at times (most politicians are at some point), but he wasn't an idiotic a$$hole. He's so set on becoming, and staying, a national player now he'll do or say anything to get it.

This statement isn't just about damage control. How much you want to bet that Rudy get's a cushy cabinet job if Romney wins?

Oh good lord. This doesn't even warrant a response.
 
2012-11-05 02:05:24 PM
He's right. To him, Obama's response to Sandy was terrible. It made Democrats look good, and that's almost as bad as stealing forty cakes.
 
2012-11-05 02:05:56 PM
Was it better than putting your OEM in the World Trade Center after the first attack in 1993, Rudy?
