Giuliani: Obama Is Afraid to Lead on Budget

Friday, 22 Jul 2011 03:52 PM

Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani says President Barack Obama lacks the necessary experience to create a budget and is unwilling to take leadership in the debt debate.

“If we default, 90 percent of the responsibility is on the president of the United States,” Giuliani told Sean Hannity on Fox News after a visit to New Hampshire that fueled speculation the he would seek the GOP nomination for president. “He is yet to outline a plan because he’s too darn afraid that he’s going to have to pay political [consequences]. And he’s pretending he wants to do all these big cuts; we know he doesn’t want to do cuts . . . He wants to do the minimum number of cuts and the maximum tax increases.”

Giuliani said he is fielding advice while assessing whether to run for president.

“I don’t want to do this just to run, I want to do it only because I have the best chance of winning,” he said. “And if I think someone else has a better chance of winning, I don’t want to spoil their chances.”

However, he said he is certain about one thing: Obama cannot remain in office.

“My objective is we cannot have President Obama after the next year,” he said. “I mean, look at what he’s put us through with this whole debt thing, and this because a president doesn’t lead. I mean, Republicans, Democrats fight with each other in the House, and the president has never outlined how he would do it . . . This is outrageous!”
