The Leftist media only cares about Rudy Giuliani’s comments about President Obama, “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America” because Governor Scott Walker sat a few feet from him.
POLITICO and what Erick Erickson calls “the circle of jerks” couldn’t care less what Giuliani says, especially when he’s preaching to the choir at a private event. The hook is guilt by association onto Walker—here’s the hook:
With Walker sitting just a few seats away, Giuliani continued by saying that “with all our flaws we’re the most exceptional country in the world. I’m looking for a presidential candidate who can express that, do that and carry it out.”
“And if it’s you Scott, I’ll endorse you,” he added. “And if it’s somebody else, I’ll support somebody else.”
Governor Scott Walker has the Left quaking in fear in a way not seen since Ronald Reagan. Every time Walker appears, they hyperventilate, and feign a lightheaded sort of dizziness, as if they are about to pass out or double over in nausea. If they weren’t running for their iPads and laptops to submit their hit pieces, they’d be running for the porcelain altar to assume bus driver position.
To the Left, Walker is Experiment six-two-six, and when he speaks, they hear “meega nala kweesta”*.
It’s not that they hate Walker. They simply believe that he’s an aberration of nature, and must be destroyed. What Giuliani was expressing strikes at the heart of the liberal conception of leadership. Love of country is some disconnected hypothetical to the hyper-educated class. Of course Obama loves America, look at what he wants to make it into, a shining beacon of utopia, they reason. An America where we can defeat our enemies by simply understanding their needs.
Walker taps into an emotional vein of America that Obama calls bitterness: “it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them…” See, it’s guns and religion and antipathy toward people who want to kill us that sort of defines America. We’re the sleeping giant, the world’s moral experiment in government of inalienable rights endowed by a Creator. Love of those principles is anathema to President Obama and those with whom he has surrounded himself.
The New Hampshire primary is a year and a day from today. Scott Walker is set to visit N.H. next month. The Left has already tried lawfare, a recall election, and painting Walker as an uneducated (read: unqualified—thanks Mike Rowe for clearing this up) yokel. They tried to bait him into an anti-Science statement (are you comfortable with evolution?).
They haven’t even unpacked their big guns yet.
Oh, yeah, they’re going to unpack the Schwerer Gustav, don’t you know?
I don’t know exactly what they’ll go after, but if you’re in any way a distant blood relative of Scott Walker, or his wife, be prepared for your court records to be reviewed, your credit history plundered, and your home to be staked out by
Democrat operatives reporters looking for dirt.
We should be encouraged at the 2016 crop of GOP presidential hopefuls. It’s not often that we encounter candidates of whom the left says, as they do Governor Scott Walker: he must be destroyed.
As a Jew, I become fearful when leaders/Giuliani accuse Obama of not “loving” America. That’s a very very scary form of patriotism — NYC Politics (@PoliticsInNYC) February 19, 2015
This is what I said on @CCTV_America last night: “The hell with Rudy.” Giuliani’s “Obama doesn’t love America” comments are beyond BS.

*Experiment six-two-six, a.k.a. the adorable alien Stitch, said “meega nala kweesta” to the galactic council when asked if there’s anything redeeming in him. That statement is widely believed to mean “I will destroy you”. Well said, six-two-six.
