Giuliani Previews His Fascist Presidency

Reminding us that democracy and free speech is over should he become President, Rudy "Benito" Giuliani criticized Hillary Clinton's criticism of the president's foriegn policy;

"I think that it's important that we conduct this debate in a way that we don't interfere with the ability of the country to function in a proper way, between the now and (the election),"

-I think Mr. Giuliani seems a little bit lost on what a campaign is.
"The president of the United States is president of the United States. He's going to be president of the United States from now until the time a new president takes over. Until then, he's the only one conducting foreign policy of this country, We can have our political debate in this country. ... But nobody should be creating the specter that we're sending emissaries out around the world before someone is actually sworn in as president of the United States. I think it would be good for the country if Mrs. Clinton, Senator Clinton would correct that statement now."

-Part of that political debate is to explain why the current system doesn't work, which is what Senator Clinton says. She explained (not well I would argue) how her foreign policy would be different than the disastrous Bush policy. Yes, running for President may require criticising the foreign policy of the current President.
Clinton's campaign shot back, reminding people that a vote for Giuliani is a vote for Bush;
"Senator Clinton and Mr. Giuliani have a fundamental disagreement. She will end the war in Iraq, reverse the Bush era cowboy diplomacy and restore America's standing around the world, Mr. Giuliani wants to escalate the war in Iraq and supports President Bush's failed foreign policy approach."

Giuliani responded by doing what he does best, inciting fear in the ignorant;
"The country is at war. Sometimes it doesn't feel like a war, because it's far away. ... We have the possibility of attack on America. We know that. It happened before."

If I had a choice between a Giuliani presidency and four more years of Bush, I'm leaning toward Bush.
