NEW YORK — Yesterday evening, with GOP presidential wannabe Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker sitting only a few feet away from him at a former Prohibition-era speakeasy here in Manhattan, and addressing an audience of sixty right-leaning business executives at a red-meat GOP event, former New York City mayor and presidential wannabe Rudy Giuliani said, “I do not believe that President Obama loves America… He doesn’t love you, and he doesn’t love me.… I was brought up through love of this country.”
When a solitary reporter entered the room, Giuliani — a Democrat who voted for George McGovern for president in 1972, before becoming a Republican – was heard muttering, sotto voce, “That’s why, Governor Walker, when you get elected president, you should have him deported to Indonesia.”
This, after President Obama, at this Year’s National Prayer Breakfast, commented that the Crusades — which most people in the West have forgotten, but which Muslims will never forget — included excesses perpetrated in the name of Christ.
But the 47-year old Walker, who was born in Colorado Springs, heard Giuliani’s remark, smiled, and told an aide to take careful note.
