For the most part the idea of having a debate this far in advance of any primary tends to be more or less a waste of time and just an opportunity for the MSM to have news created for them to rebroadcast. A debate usually requires some back and forth banter between candidates, not what has become all to common these days of politicians spewing forth what their handlers tell them to say. The idea of a debate one would think would be to set yourself a part, not go a long with the same repetitive response. However, every so often, for just a brief and shining moment the debate works. Rudy Giuliani’s response to Ron Paul should be a reminder to all that have forgotten just what took place 9/11/01 and who was responsible. Hear Rudy roar … Its about time.
That’s really an extraordinary statement,” Giuliani said, interrupting FOX News panelist Wendell Goler. “That’s really an extraordinary statement, as someone who lived through the attack of Sept. 11, that we invited the attack because we were attacking Iraq. I don’t think I have ever heard that before and I have heard some pretty absurd explanations for Sept. 11. I would ask the congressman withdraw that comment and tell us that he didn’t really mean that.” (Fox News)
