Even though he’s being attacked by idiots, Nate Silver is calling the election a complete lock for Obama which basically means it’s over. So what’s Mitt Romney to do now? Unless all of the state polls are totally off, he’s going to be out of a job come next week. He needs one last trump card and the Donald isn’t the man for the job. Romney is now hedging his bets on a last minute performance from Rudy Giuliani.
The former New York mayor joined Romney and Paul Ryan onstage at a mega-rally in Ohio last night, as part of a Republican all-star lineup that also included former presidential candidates John McCain, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry.
Giuliani made the most news of the night by calling for Obama’s resignation.
"He should resign,” said Giuliani. “He lied. He has been a disaster: the worst president for our economy in our lifetime. He doesn’t want a second term. He wants a second chance because he screwed it up the first time."
After his speech, Giuliani appeared on the Piers Morgan show where he continued to be on the strong offensive against Obama.
"I don’t know what the heck he was doing in Nevada while people were still being discovered dead in New York. I sure wouldn’t be flitting around the Midwest,” he said.
He went on to say, “I feel pretty darn offended seeing my president floating around campaigning while people are suffering.”
It’s a smart move by the Romney campaign: the 9/11 crisis manager attacking the President on his abilities to manage a crisis. Most importantly, it keeps the pretty distasteful words out of Romney’s mouth.
But Giuliani hasn’t always been so kind to Romney. They were opponents in 2008 and Giuliani was on Morning Joe in December and had some harsh words for Mitt. “This is a man without a core,” he said. “This is a man without substance. This is a man who will say anything to become president of the United States. I think that is a great vulnerability.
Actually Rudy, changing your opinion about Mitt Romney sounds pretty core-less too.
