California Sen. Barbara Boxer to Giuliani: ‘Ask Bin Laden if Obama Loves America’

barbara-boxerWho would have ever guessed that former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani could cause such a stink. After all, he’s someone most liberals can’t stand and most conservatives don’t care much for either. Outside of making a career lately out of obsessing about President Obama (then again, what conservative hasn’t), he’s done absolutely nothing.

Correction, he’s done a great job at trying to exploit 9/11 in a desperate attempt to keep himself relevant. Which is pretty much what he’s done since 9/11. Because nothing says “I love my country” quite like using one of the most horrific tragedies in our nation’s history to personally promote yourself.

Well, his latest comments where he stated that he doesn’t believe President Obama loves America, or Americans for that matter, might have been what finally sends Giuliani into permanent obscurity. Even leading Republicans who’ve made careers lately out of bashing the president any chance they get have had to come out publicly and basically say that they believe Giuliani’s comments were baseless and ridiculous.

But Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) has had, by far, the best response to the former NYC mayor’s comments. The California senator took to Twitter to mock the idiocy of what Giuliani said:

That, my friends, is what you call getting “owned.”

But that’s just how absurd Giuliani’s remarks were. Then again, were they really that shocking? While what he said was blunt, isn’t what he said basically been the theme Republicans have been pushing for years against this president? Even before he was elected, conservatives have accused this president of not being an American citizen, being a Muslim (in an insinuation that he’s “not one of us,” even though there are millions of Muslim Americans) and that he’s a communist/fascist/socialist …again, another insinuation that he’s “anti-American.”

If anything, Giuliani’s comments just put to exact words the message that Republicans have been pushing for years. But because he just flat-out said it, suddenly many within the GOP are trying to distances themselves from his comments since there’s been quite a bit of public backlash over them. So it’s comical to see Republicans pretending to be even the slightest bit offended by his remarks, when they have no issues going out publicly to claim that everything Obama’s done during his presidency is “destroying America.”

Personally, I’m glad Sen. Boxer brilliantly put in her own words exactly how much of a jackass she thinks Giuliani is, because he deserves every ounce of criticism he gets for his absurd remarks.
