Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was feeling himself on Wednesday when he offered some harsh criticism of Vice President Joe Biden.
The words began to fly once Biden criticized Mitt Romney’s plan for Wall Street if he were to become president. The vice president said he believes that Romney will push for less regulation and will try to put people back “in chains.”
Giuliani was NOT feeling the comment and went into attack mode on second-in-command.
“I mean, this guy just isn’t bright. He’s never been bright. He isn’t bright,” Giuliani told CNBC.
“And people think, `Well, he just talks a little too much.’ Actually, he’s just not very smart,” he added. [SOURCE]
Well, tell us how you really feel Rudy.
The former mayor tried to capitalize on the outrage around Biden’s comment to a mostly-black audience on Tuesday. The vice president said that Romney’s policies would put them “back in chains.” Many were not feeling the slavery undertones in what Biden said, even though Republicans have used the word “unshackle” in previous statements as a metaphor dealing with Wall Street.
I understand if Giuliani doesn’t agree with Biden. That’s fine. But, it’s kinda odd to see him insult the vice president’s intelligence when his own party acted so hurt about insults toward President George W. Bush. Plus, Republicans are known for insensitive comments across the board.
Let’s just say that side-eye to Giuliani may have been a bit stronger if someone said these things about Dick Cheney when he was vice president.
