America’s mayor, Rudy Giuliani, served up some unpleasantries re our president at a recent 21 Club dinner for Gov. Scott Walker.
Pat Buchanan writes that Republican leaders acted swiftly to put some space between themselves and Giuliani. “The consultant class’ advice was near unanimous: Cut Rudy loose…Sensing retreat, the left pursued. And it is not letting go. They still demand to know why Walker did not renounce Rudy.”
Walker and his team should take the approach that Rudy’s views are Rudy’s views. End of discussion. Obama has been a disaster as president for many reasons. And the majority of readers of this website would nod in agreement with most of what America’s mayor had to offer. I doubt Rudy regrets a thing he said. He is not running for office or pandering to the zealots in the media or Washington politicians on either side of the aisle.
The underlying truth here is that the Bush and Obama administrations have run the American ship of state onto the shoals. Americans are angry and fully recognize that neither mainstream Democrats nor Republicans offer even a shred of hope for the future. A broad coalition of Americans committed to a smaller, less intrusive, less interventionist central government will come to the foreground. Here I am looking at a Constitutional Republic, states-rights-oriented majority. Such a majority could kick start the good jobs revival that America so desperately needs both to foster technology innovation and to close the income equality gap.
