2nd Republican Debate-Giuliani WINS

Posted by Reuben Ingber on May 16, 2007

Although I enjoyed the feud between McCain and Romney, over each others record and Romneys changing opinions on election years, I really think that Giuliani shined and showed his stuff.

Ron Paul, the 2nd tier candidate, who really isn’t a Republican said“Have you ever read about the reasons they attacked us? They attack us because we’ve been over there. We’ve been bombing Iraq for 10 years. We’ve been in the Middle East…”

Such comments raised the antennae of Fox moderator Wendell Goler who asked, “Are you suggesting we invited the 9/11 attack, sir?”

Rudy Giuliani stepped up to the plate and hit the ball over the white fence after this question by interjecting and stopping the debate.

“That’s really an extraordinary statement,” Giuliani observed. “That’s an extraordinary statement, as someone who lived through the attack of September 11, that we invited the attack because we were attacking Iraq. I don’t think I’ve ever heard that before, and I’ve heard some pretty absurd explanations for September 11th.”

At that moment Giuliani drew the loudest applause of the night.

Giuliani then drew more applause by asking, as though the two were jousting on the House floor, that Paul “withdraw that comment and tell us that he didn’t really mean that.”

Giuliani really hit it hard, this is a personal issue for him and it would be for any mayor who had to deal with it. “The war on terror is personal to him. He’s not going to sit there and let somebody say that [9/11] was our fault,” said Mike DuHaime in the Spin Room.

In my opinion Rudy came out as the clear victor in last nights debate.

GOP Debate 2

Posted by Reuben Ingber on May 4, 2007

John McCain-Has Iran committed acts of war?–Iran is a state sponsor of terror and is arming insurgants in Iraq. Iran poses one of the greatest threats to the world and the Middle East. We cannot allow Iran to get nuclear weapons. My biggest fear is the Iranians acquiring a nuclear weapon, if our intelligence say it is a threat to Israel and other nations, we must act.

Tom Tancredo on helping Israel attack Iran, if there is a threat- If Israel is put in that position, I would say yes we would help. An attack on Israel by Iran is a threat to the United States.

Rudy Giuliani- Iranian President Ahmadinajad cannot have nuclear weapons.

Mitt Romney-on his comment about Osama Bin Laden–We must get him however I do not want to become apart of the Democrats ideology that we are trying to get one person. “He will pay and he will die.”

Should we change our constitution to allow people like Arnold Schwarzenager to run for President?

8 to 2, against changing the constitution.

Mike Huckabee on Don Rumsfel, I would have fired him before the election. It is important that we finish the war we started and not have to go back to Iraq in a few years.
