“If we default, and I hope we don’t, 90 percent of the responsibility is on the President of the United States — not on even the Democrats in the House or the Republicans in the House,” the former mayor said. “It’s on him. He’s the leader of this country. He’s the chief executive of this country, and he’s yet to outline a plan because he’s too darn afraid that he’s going to pay political consequences.”
Giuliani said that inexperience explains a lot of what he views as Obama’s failure to lead on the budget issue.
“He’s never done a budget before. We take a guy who’s never done a budget and give him the biggest budget in the world,” he said. Of course he’s going to screw it up.”
Giuliani visited New Hampshire earlier this week, and host Sean Hannity asked him what his plans were for 2012. The mayor said he is still weighing his options.
“What kind of a chance do I really have? How are the candidates doing? Is there anybody that really looks like they can win? My objective is we can not have President Obama after next year,” he said.
