Is Giuliani G. W. Bush Version 2.0?

What is the former Mayor of New York City thinking when he continually plays the 9/11 card? America gets it that you were the super hero of New York City and did all the right things post 9/11. You attended many of the funerals for the fallen Fire Fighters, the Police, and any media event you could tack onto your political resume. We get that!

When did he become George Bush version 2.0? What is more important to ask is if he comes with a Dick Cheney version 2.0?

We get that part but Ruddy, you are not the savior for America because you manipulated your way into many families grieving process and ceremonies. I fully apologize to all the families that lost a loved one on that tragic day but this man is abusing the memories of all Americans when he says that he can lead the people with the same message as our current President. Our current President is not leading anything other than his personal agenda of a shiney object over here while he and his friends do as they please over there.

Giuliani is playing the fear card and that is the same set of cards the current President is playing. Unlike the former Mayor of New York City the current President can select the audiences he wants to talk to and have them screened as always supportive to the message. Any dissenting thoughts are not allowed in his holiness presence at the King of the United States appearances.

Over at the Boston Globe they have this to say about the former Mayor and his message of fear…

Giuliani watchers wonder if he will overplay 9/11 card

WILMINGTON, Del. -- Rudy Giuliani was just six seconds into his speech when he played his campaign trump card: the memory of the Sept. 11 attacks.

"I'll tell you the reason I wear this flag," the former New York City mayor told supporters at a recent rally here, pointing to the American flag pin on his lapel. "Before September 11, I only wore this flag rarely. But I started wearing it right after September 11. I wear it every day now. Each time I wear it, it reminds me of September 11."

For Giuliani, the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and his response to them have become his strongest campaign pitch, as the GOP presidential candidate reminds voters again and again of the role he played when terrorists crashed two airliners into the World Trade Center towers, killing nearly 3,000 people.

It is a message that appears to be resonating among Republicans. They have put the blunt-speaking former mayor at the top of a crowded GOP field in most polls, and his campaign said Tuesday that he raised more money in the second quarter than any other Republican candidate.
Political analysts say Giuliani's pitch is a powerful message to an electorate worried about another assault on US soil, especially after the recent attacks in Britain.

At the same time, many of these analysts question whether Giuliani can ride the anti terror train all the way to the White House. They say Giuliani risks being tagged as a single-issue candidate for his Sept. 11 performance just when his handling of the attack and its aftermath is drawing increasing criticism from his home city of New York

If the former Mayor is privy to any information regarding any future attacks on America then why is he not just saying such? Selling fear is what Bush does best, Giuliani is not convincing me one bit. I’m gambling but the next President of the United States will not be a Republican. George Bush burned the office and the trust of the American people. He will continue to do so as long as he is the emperor without a conscience in the Congress.

We can live in fear or we can live free? You decide? There has not been any diplomacy from this nation since W took office and there will be no diplomacy if G takes the highest office in the land.

Fear sells headlines but diplomacy is difficult and takes deep thought. Long term thought for the betterment of many people. Not just on shores here at home but for people in lands most of us will never have to be in unless we are lied to into the situation.

I don’t think that America needs a George W. Bush version 2.0 so the former Mayor can sell his fear somewhere else. What do you think?
