You had to know this was coming:
MANCHESTER, N.H. ?- Rudy Giuliani said if a Democrat is elected president in 2008, America will be at risk for another terrorist attack on the scale of Sept. 11, 2001.
However…if a Republican is elected in ’08:
But if a Republican is elected, he said, especially if it is him, terrorist attacks can be anticipated and stopped.
?If any Republican is elected president ?- and I think obviously I would be the best at this ?- we will remain on offense and will anticipate what [the terrorists] will do and try to stop them before they do it,? Giuliani said.
This might be enough laughter to get me through the entire day…
A comment in the thread at Politico gets it about right:
This is about as funny as it gets. The GOP was in charge when the first and only 9/11 happened yet they try to put some mythical 9/11 on the Democrats. How can you righties make this up and NOT laugh?
Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!
[Brian:] All this, and Giuliani is still unwilling to say if Bush’s “surge” is working or not.
Republican presidential contender Rudy Giuliani said Tuesday he couldn’t evaluate whether President Bush’s 10-week-old troop increase in Iraq was working.
“I don’t know the answer to that,” the former New York City mayor told reporters after speaking with a group of business leaders in the first-in-the-nation primary state.
