looks like Rudy, who has not decided if he will run for prez until after the nov elections, is trying to be nice to both sides... maybe he is gearing up to be the next great uniter, wait a minute hasn't that been tried before. Don't discount the source it is pretty much in all of the political blogs this AM, on both sides of the aisle. http://www.rawstory.com/showoutarti...NTON?SITE=WYCHE&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani defended Bill Clinton on Wednesday over the former president's counterterrorism efforts, saying recent criticism on preventing the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks is wrong. Political bickering over which president - Clinton or George W. Bush - missed more opportunities to prevent the attacks has been escalating since Clinton gave a combative interview on "Fox News Sunday" in which he defended his efforts to kill Osama bin Laden. "The idea of trying to cast blame on President Clinton is just wrong for many, many reasons, not the least of which is I don't think he deserves it," Giuliani said in response to a question after an appearance with fellow Republican Charlie Crist, who is running for governor. "I don't think President Bush deserves it. The people who deserve blame for Sept. 11, I think we should remind ourselves, are the terrorists - the Islamic fanatics - who came here and killed us and want to come here again and do it."
