Would you want to fundamentally change something that you love?
According to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who spoke at a private midtown Manhattan dinner Wednesday, the answer is no.
“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani said, according to Politico. “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”
He elaborated on his point with reporters after the dinner, according to Politico.
“What country has left so many young men and women dead abroad to save other countries without taking land?” he asked rhetorically. “This is not the colonial empire that somehow he has in his hand. I’ve never felt that from him. I felt that from (George W. Bush). I felt that from (Bill) Clinton. I felt that from every American president, including ones I disagreed with, including (Jimmy) Carter. I don’t feel that from President Obama.”
Giuliani also criticized Obama for not being able to articulate the battle against radical Islamist extremism.
“You’ve got to be able to criticize Islam for the parts of Islam that are wrong,” he said. “You criticize Christianity for the part of Christianity that is wrong. I’m not sure how wrong the Crusades are.
“The Crusades were kind of an equal battle between two groups of barbarians. The Muslims and the crusading barbarians. What the hell? What’s wrong with this man that he can’t stand up and say there’s a part of Islam that’s sick?”
