I didn’t hear it when he said it, so I don’t know the context, but politicians have to be keenly aware that everything they say on the campaign trail can and will be broken down into perfectly honed sound byte weapons.

On Thursday in Cincinnati Rudy Giuliani apparently opined that he was at ground zero “as often, if not more, than most of the workers.”

Ouch. Yeah, that was probably not the wisest comment to make, even if he didn’t mean to say that he’s more of a hero than the police officers, firefighters, and crewmembers who labored tirelessly at ground zero.

“I think I could have said it better,” he told radio host Mike Gallagher in the biggest understatement of the day.

Yep, I’d say you could have, but like all the candidates you’ll continually say stupid things as long as you’re running. It’s what presidential candidates do when they’re not keeping their mouths busy by kissing babies.

  1. Pertaining to unwise or poorly nuanced campaign ads: Romney has one featuring his wife saying that Mitt used to tell her that what goes on in the American home is far more important that anything he does out in the world of politics when she had a bad day at home. To me, that ad is patronizing and has made me re-think my neutrality towards Romney. Is he the kind of man who pats one on the head, tells you you are a good girl and does exactly what he wants secure in the knowledge that you are doing what he wants too? Possibly!!

  2. As far as I’m concerned, neither Romney nor Giuliani are worthy of any office, let alone the Presidency. Giuliani is still pushing the snooze alarm on his 15 minutes of fame with his constant “9/11! the terrorists are gonna get us” drumbeat, and now he goes and compares his minor cough to the chronic health problems of the volunteers. Romney, meanwhile, has compared his sons’ helping him not win the 2008 race with the very real sacrifices our troops make every day and found the two to be equivalent.

    What complete idiots.
