Former NYC Mayor and failed GOP presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani trots out every tired trope he can find that lost them the last two presidential elections to attack President Obama over the VA scandal.
May 30, 2014

Former NYC Mayor and failed GOP presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani attacked the President prior to his announcement that he was accepting Sec. Eric Shinseki's resignation for his failure to lead, and trotted out every single one of the tired old attacks that didn't work for them when they got their butts kicked in the last two presidential elections.

It takes a lot of nerve for the guy who decided to put the city’s emergency command center in the bottom of the World Trade Center to go after someone else for "failed leadership," but then nothing ever seems to peg their irony meter over at Faux "news."

Here's more from Fox's blog: Giuliani With Bill Hemmer: 'Obama's Not Cut Out to Be an Executive':

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani sat down with Bill Hemmer on America’s Newsroom to discuss the VA scandal and leadership in Washington.

Giuliani, who has written a book about leadership, said the president is reluctant to fire those who have made mistakes because “he’s not cut out to be an executive.”

While Obama didn’t have the experience to lead prior to being elected, Giuliani said he hoped he would’ve had the natural talent.

“He doesn’t have it. He’s not decisive. He doesn’t make decisions quickly,” Giuliani said, adding that the president doesn’t surround himself with good advisers.

In Bill O’Reilly’s Talking Points Memo last night, the Factor host said President Obama underestimated how difficult the job would be. Giuliani agreed with O’Reilly, also noting that Obama never ran an organization in which he had to make a payroll.

“John McCain ran a military unit. I ran a mayor’s office. Romney run a governor’s office; he ran a business,” Giuliani said. “You don’t learn this at 50 years old, […] and by instinct, he’s a professor. If I were doing hiring in my law firm or my security business, I wouldn’t hire him to run it.”

And thankfully America didn't want to hire you for the job he has now Mr. Noun-Verb-and-Nine-Eleven Sour-Grapes.
