Rudy to Obama – You are NO Ronald Reagan

Republican presidential hopeful former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani speaks during the Republican Jewish Coalition forum Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2007, in Washington .

More Giuliani tough talk

Giuliani went after Obama Tuesday, criticizing Obama’s plans to meet with the leaders of rogue nations without preconditions. Giuliani, speaking to the Republican Jewish Coalition, took issue with Obama’s claims that meeting with leaders like Hugo Chavez is akin to Ronald Reagan’s meetings with the Soviet Union in the 1980s.

“I say this most respectfully, you’re not Ronald Reagan,” Giuliani said, adding the Reagan called the Soviets the “evil empire” and pointed intermediate range missiles at them before calling for negotiations. “He made sure this country was negotiating from strength.”

Giuliani defended his Republican credentials, a day after they were attacked by Thompson. Giuliani noted that many of the Republican Jews in the audience were the first in their families, and have been met with resistance. “When they want to know, ‘Are you a real Republican?'” he said. “I gave my blood for the Republican Party in New York.”

Indeed, Obama is not Reagan and does not appreciate the “Peace Through Strength” negotiations with which Reagan defeated the Soviets.

If the Democrats had their way, America would not today have an operational missile defense shield, nor would American hostages in Iran been returned.
