Rudy Giuliani Tries To Praise Mitt Romney But Ends Up Bragging About Himself

The former mayor of New York City appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning, and he was asked to square his previous bashing of Mitt Romney — which hit a fever pitch during the 2008 campaign — with his current support. “Well, I mean, there’s a certain amount of personal ego in that. At that point I was probably comparing his record to my record,” Giuliani said.”That’s all part of campaigning.”

Then he preceded to praise Romney’s record, but only by pointing out that his own record was “far superior.” He explained:

Maybe it was circumstances or whatever, but I had massive reductions in unemployment. He had a reduction in unemployment of about 8, 10 – I think it was 15%. I had a reduction of unemployment of 50%. He had a growth of jobs of about 40,000. We had a growth of jobs of about 500,000… So I was comparing what I thought was my far superior record to his otherwise decent record, but numbers weren’t as great.”

Giuliani’s “far superior” record has been buttressed by a decade of lobbying. Most recently, he’s been working for anti-democratic Serbian nationalists.

  • A verb, a noun and 9/11. Isn’t that the way old Rudy has been described before? The man is certainly full of self-delusion puffery and this is no exception to his track record.

    He wasn’t a good Mayor or politician , he is I fear selfish greedy politician , has no idea of world’s affair and the continuation of disastrous incidences in the whole universe.
    Does he know anything about Africa and how many children dying of hungre , or even within US,there are in minority group children 1/4 live under poverty line .

  • Giuliani only reason anyone knows about him is because the conspiracy of the towers happened in new york the man is a complete idiot another italian leader in new york whose ego went to his head

  • If it wasn’t for 9/11, nobody’d even remember Giuliani. Before that, he was content with riding the “Clinton wave”, but trying to get credit for it. Full of himself, his head is only big from the outside.

  • It all sounds like some residual YANKEES VERSUS RED SOX hot air to me.

    Gullianni was really an unpopular mayor before 9/11 thrust him into the national spotlight. He really concentrated his efforts in rebuliding Manhatten and let the rest of NYC go. There was more police pressence in the theatre district than in Harlem the Bronx or Brooklyn’s high crime areas. He was also not a moral person having an affair and leaving his wife when she had cancer. I know that Edwards did it to but he did not try to appeal to the evangelical right like Rudy did. I don;t know why these guys are popular with conservatives. Rudy had multiple wives as did Newt(4) Rush(4) and Donald (3) I guess if you’re a true conservative you have a latent disrespect of women. This must be why they want to probe their vaginas and humiliate them any way they can.

    Good old Rudy, full of sh-t then, full of sh-t now!

    I typed a letter concerning the Republican agenda during 9/11 Did you receive it??

    My statement was no joking matter. Alexander Christian May 28th/2012
