Darell Issa Defends Giuliani's Statement About Obama

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani's statements about President Obama not loving America has the media in a frenzy. However, there are a select few politicians who are supporting the remarks. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is one Republican that supports Giuliani; he believes the media is treating the former mayor harshly and that the public should "thank" him for his comments.

Last week, Giuliani said, "I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. 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." On CNN's "State of the Union" broadcast, Issa said, "The reality is that Rudy has taken our debate -- and I think we should thank him for this part of it -- back to national security, to the key element that the president should be focusing on. Rudy Giuliani said he 'didn't believe'. He didn't say the president 'wasn't,' he said he 'didn't believe.' Now the reality is that I do believe that the president believes strongly in America, I just think he views America differently."

Issa also chastened the media for asking Republicans to respond to Giuliani's statement. Issa added about Vice President Joe Biden, "If we wanted to get -- get on top of the vice president every time he says something flip and foolish or vulgar, we could have this discussion every Sunday." CNN host Gloria Borger then responded to Issa by saying, "Congressman Issa, the vice president may very well be clumsy, but these remarks were hateful." Giuliani defended his statements by sharing that, "This isn’t racism. This is socialism or possibly anti-colonialism."
