First Dana Perino, then Mary Matalin… and now Rudy Giuliani?
Today on Good Morning America, Giuliani said:
“We had no domestic attacks under Bush; we’ve had one under Obama.”
Let me revisit the first half of this comment.
“We had no domestic attacks under Bush”
Is there anyone out there reading this blog who has forgotten that the following small matter ever took place?
Anyone remember the guy who was supposedly such a big hero for his handling of that particular crisis? The guy who subsequently got an honorary knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II? You know, that Giuliani fella?
In Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler wrote that people will more readily accept a big lie ["Große Lüge"] than a small one, because “they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.”
Is this what the GOP is reduced to now? It seems unlikely that three prominent conservative figures could coincidentally make the same colossal mistake within a short period of time.
Or – and here is the still more sinister idea – is this an implication that 9/11 was not in fact a terrorist attack? The conspiracy theories have been flying since about 9/12/2001, suggesting that it was an inside job of some kind. Could it be that a big reveal is on the way, and certain out-of-power figures are going to become the fall guys for it?
Giuliani surprised a few people by announcing that he would not run for any office in 2010. Is he intentionally distancing himself? Will he storm back into the 2012 field like a knight in shining armor to save his party?
Something a little odd is afoot.
