article imageGiuliani: Republican Party Lacks Leadership

By Andrew Moran     Jul 30, 2009 in Politics
The former Mayor of New York, Rudolph Giuliani, sat down with CNN to discuss issues ranging from Pres. Obama's birth certificate to the Iran's crisis and the President's policies.
On Wednesday, former Mayor of New York and former 2008 Presidential Republican candidate Rudy Giuliani told CNN that Republicans should focus their attention on left-wing issues rather than false issues such as the validity of Pres. Obama’s birth certificate.
Mr. Giuliani acknowledged that the Republican Party lacks leadership, which will not help direct the party’s attention to policies not seen “since Roosevelt.” The former Mayor said, “We don't have a real leader of the party right now because we don't have a president, we don't have presidential candidates. So everybody gets to speak their minds”
When asked about the President’s overall performance, he went quickly on the offense, “I think he has gone much further to the left than I thought he would.” The former Republican Presidential candidate said, when asked regarding the Iranian election crisis, “I think some of my Republican colleagues sort of instinctively criticized that. I'm not sure I wouldn't have done the same thing and not get America, you know, deeply involved in that.”

The topic of the former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin came into the interview. Mr. Giuliani responded to the question, “I thought she was a really good governor. … I thought she had done a really good job. There are a lot of questions because of all of the things that have been raised. She had the chance to answer them all. And I think she's a real presence in our party.”
As most mainstream politicians are asked about their future Presidential ambitions and respond with ambiguous answers, so did Mr. Giuliani, “I don't know. We'll see. We'll have to decide that some time at the end of this year.”
