As the Politico reports, smelling salts in firmly in hand:
“I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America,” Giuliani said during the dinner at the 21 Club, a former Prohibition-era speakeasy in midtown Manhattan. “He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”

In an interview after the dinner — Walker aides insisted all of the governor’s comments were off the record — Giuliani said he would “eventually” back a Republican presidential candidate. He also elaborated on his criticism of Obama by arguing the president “sees our weaknesses as footnotes to the great things we’ve done.”
As Ace adds:
That is Guiliani garbling his thoughts; our weaknesses are footnotes (and footnotes worth reading, as footnotes usually are) to our accomplishments.
Obama doesn’t see our failings as footnotes. He sees them as the main text. He sees America doing a few good things here and there (most importantly: electing him) as the footnotes.
Click over to read the rest. And then check out Jim Treacher, who offers an illustrated drive down memory road for anyone in the DNC-MSM who has forgotten some of Mr. Obama’s more infamous moments. “Obama loves you, America. Now stop clinging so bitterly to your old life and change,” Treach adds.
Back in 2007, Ace once referred to “the Ike Turner school of patriotism,” practiced by those “who love America show it by denigrating and beating the shit out of her at every opportunity.” Mr. Obama fits that mindset perfectly. And the MSM knows it, because in their heart of hearts, they also support such a punitive worldview, which is at the reactionary heart of the Progressive mindset, but one that they’ve spent eight years working so diligently covering up in Mr. Obama.
Which is why they’re so angry with Giuliani for openly stating the obvious. And hey, two more years to go of Obama in full You’re Only President Once mode. As Obama continues to go Bullworth, the media will continue to attack Republicans ever more viciously as they point out his failings — a dangerous negative feedback loop for all concerned.
Finally, an exit question for the MSM:
You were saying something about Rudy, media? http://t.co/UgDCEhiVjo
