Republican presidential candidate, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, speaks during a town hall meeting in Boca Raton, Florida November 30, 2007.
At a town hall meeting in Florida this afternoon, a questioner asked Rudy what he was going to do about Russian President Vladimir Putin?
Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani on Friday advocated a strong military build-up by the United States as a bulwark against the oil-rich Russian President Vladimir Putin and his increasing consolidation of power in the country.
“The good part with Russia is we’re not in a Cold War, there is no longer a Soviet empire, their desires are still of a matter of concern but they’re not nearly what they used to be and we don’t want to get ourselves back into that,” said Giuliani, who described Putin as both “good and bad.”
“Long term the way we prevent getting ourselves back into that, both with regard to Russia, and even China, is to become militarily even stronger.”
Of course! And a good answer by the Mayor. The military was weakened by Hillary Clinton’s husband, Bill, and while he used the “peace dividend” to pay down budget deficits over the long term America’s military might still suffers.
The Mayor has not lost a step with the “political hits” over the last few days and is playing to his leadership role as America’s next President.
When the chips are down, who does America REALLY want as President to lead them against Russia, China, Iran and the rest of the Islamofascists?
