GOP presidential candidate, Rudy Giuliani, appeared on Meet The Press this morning and in a stunning reversal of policy, host Tim Russert actually grilled him, asking him tough questions AND followed up. Rudy looked lost and confused at times as he bumbled, stumbled and backtracked his way through this terrible interview. His attempts to defend his shady past and the myriad scandals torpedoing his campaign -- failed miserably.

In this clip, Russert hits America's Mayor with a question about the Iraq Study Group and why he chose to skip ISG meetings to make huge sums of money for speaking engagements. Rudy claims he discussed dropping out with James Baker (that's news), but thought being involved with the ISG would be a bad idea because he was thinking about running for president - but hadn't made up his mind yet. Huh? Being an ISG member would have been a huge feather in his cap now that he's actually running, but why would he bother with such trivial matters as learning how to avoid another disaster like Iraq when he could make major cash on the lecture circuit?
