Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani speaks at the Americans for Prosperity Foundation’s Defending the American Dream Summit in Washington, October 5, 2007.

Giuliani criticizes GOP on spending – Shame on Us

Republican presidential contenders on Friday scolded Congress for extravagant spending of taxpayer dollars, and Rudy Giuliani blamed the issue for GOP losses in last year’s elections.

“We lost control of Congress because we were just like the Democrats as far as spending is concerned — shame on us,” Giuliani told the anti-tax group Americans for Prosperity.

But the former New York mayor spent most of his 25-minute speech ridiculing Hillary Rodham Clinton and other Democratic candidates, saying, “Republicans are amateur spenders, and Democrats are professional spenders.”

Giuliani addresses more than 1,700 grassroots activists at the first annual Americans for Prosperity Defending the American Dream Summit in the Mayflower Hotel Ballroom, Oct. 5, 2007:
