Rudy 9/11

The liberal media has all but ceded the floor to Rudy 9/11 on the terrorism issue.

The big question is: How does he get away with it when his actual national security credentials are either non-existent or frightening, depending on your point of view? The answer is simple. It's because the Democrats won't call a spade a spade. They rarely ever do on this issue.

Just say it, Democrats... Rudy Guiliani is an opportunist, feeding off a national tragedy for personal gain, with no real security credentials, and authoritarian leanings. For added measure, remind people that a) the type of policies he supports-- torture, unchecked executive power, endless war-- have made the world more vulnerable to attacks since the Republican president and congress implemented them in recent years, and b) the counter-terrorism successes we have had, of varying degrees of seriousness, have been due to careful police work and legal intelligence-gathering, exactly the type of things Democrats have been arguing for, much to the disdain of right-wing conservatives.

It's rarely not that hard a point to make. And it won't bite either.

[PS- Rudy's position on Iraq? None. "That’s in the hands of other people", he says.

PPS- Still, I fully expect Rudy to implode, and Romney (or Thompson?) to be the nominee.]
