Gi­u­liani’s cri­tique

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

Repub­li­can Ru­dolph W. Gi­u­liani said Aug. 8 that the latest Demo­cratic de­bate un­der­scores the party’s drift to the left, a move he said en­sures that vot­ers will have a stark choice in next year’s pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

Mr. Gi­u­liani, who last month called Democrats the “party of losers,” said the field of eight Demo­cratic can­di­dates is the most lib­eral in me­mory.

“It’s be­yond their just em­brac­ing loss in Iraq,” Mr. Gi­u­liani said. “It sounds to me like they want to re­peat the Clin­ton ad­min­is­tra­tion.”

Mr. Gi­u­liani spoke at a diner in the west­ern Iowa city of Coun­cil Bluffs, where he wrapped up a four-day trip to the state, the As­so­ci­ated Press re­ports. He ate an omelet and sausage break­fast with ac­tivists and took ques­tions from re­porters, who asked about the Demo­cratic de­bate spon­sored by the AFL-CIO.

On vir­tu­ally ev­ery is­sue, Mr. Gi­u­liani ar­gued, Democrats have ceded the po­lit­i­cal mid­dle and moved left to court party in­ter­est groups. “When you lis­ten to their dis­cus­sion, it’s tax­ing the rich, pe­nal­iz­ing cor­po­ra­tions, cre­at­ing so­cial­ized medicine, de­mil­i­ta­riz­ing,” Mr. Gi­u­liani said.
