Not only does he
lie exaggerate everything to ridiculous levels, he's a hypocrite as well. It feels like only yesterday (really a couple of weeks) when he decried government health care after lauding over it when he was taken care of by NYC's HIP plan. What is good for Rudy isn't good for everyone else, according to the man himself at least. Well today was more of the same from Giuliani when he lashed out at all the earmarks in Congress. Maybe he forgot about all of those that went his way.
Nov. 26 (Bloomberg) -- On the campaign trail, Rudy Giuliani rails against congressional spending set aside for lawmakers' pet projects. In Washington, his law firm fights to obtain them.
Giuliani, the Republican presidential front-runner, last month pledged to ``get rid of'' so-called earmarks, which cost taxpayers about $13 billion this year, saying his party should promote ``fiscal discipline.'' Just weeks later, Bracewell & Giuliani LLP won $3 million worth of projects for its clients in defense-spending legislation.
``It's a bit hypocritical,'' said Republican consultant Eddie Mahe, who isn't aligned with any presidential candidate. ``He profits from it. I don't think Joe Sixpack is going to buy into that.''
Even his own party's political peeps are trashing him over this. Thanks for making it easier for us Dems to pile on. Oh and it appears his BFF is trailing him (scroll down to the last two paragraphs) on the campaign as well. Gotta love those diehards that follow Rudy, looking like Rudy touting old friendships.
