Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said President Barack Obama should resign over the state of the economy and that the Americans killed in Libya may have died because of “incompetence in the White House.”
“[The Obama administration is] content with 7.9 percent unemployment, they’re real excited today because unemployment didn’t go back to 8 percent…they should be ashamed of themselves,” Giuliani thundered at a major campaign rally for Mitt Romney in Ohio Friday night.
“He should resign! He told us he would resign if he did this poorly,” Giuliani continued, referring to Obama’s “one-term proposition” 2009 remark on if he couldn’t turn the economy around in three years. “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.”
The one-time GOP presidential candidate said that if the country had had someone with Romney’s experience in charge, “maybe something like what happened in Libya could have been avoided.”
“Maybe if we had a president who was paying attention we wouldn’t be going through all this investigation of what’s being covered up in Libya,” he said. “You know that what happened in Libya is the result, at least, of incompetence. You think if we had elected John McCain president of the United States, those people wouldn’t have had the full resources of the United States there in Benghazi trying to save them?”
Giuliani said Americans will have “a chance to right that wrong” on Tuesday.
“We’ve got the chance to elect a commander in chief who will not leave Americans behind,” he said. “I believe some Americans who might not have had to die may have died because we had incompetence in the White House.”
