“We need leadership and I think President Obama has made this much more complicated by being such a weakling with regard to Iran,” Hizzoner said. “A month ago he writes a letter to the Ayatollah asking the Ayatollah to talk to him. I mean this is absurd. Writing a letter to the Ayatollah! It’s like writing a letter to Hitler. It’s nuts.”
Mr. Giuliani appears to be referring to a secret letter that the president allegedly to the Iranian leader calling for talks. Obama officials denied the existence of such a letter.
“Instead what he should be doing is convincing the Iranians that he is serious, that if he had to he would bomb the hell out of them,” Mr. Giuliani continued. “And they should believe this. The best way he is going to avoid bombing them is convincing them in their heads he is capable of bombing them.”
Mr. Giuliani continued with some high-pitched schoolyard mocking of the president, the kind of which is nearly impossible to render into print and must be seen to be understood.
