Wow! Rudy steps in it big time.

Just heard Rudy Giuliani say that the Democrats didn't use the term "Islamic terrorisism" because they were afraid it was insulting. He then went on ask rhetorically, "Who would the term "Islamic terrorism" insult?

He then stated that the term "Islamic terrorism" would be an insult... wait for it... to terrorists.

Nothing like insulting an entire religious faith by suggesting that accusing someone of being Muslim is worse than calling them a terrorist.

Way to go Rudy!

You just don't get it.

Ugh. His speechwriter does deserve some props though. I listened to about the first 10 or so minutes and didn't hear one 9-11. And I was all ready to count the 9-11s.

Gotta hand it to Rudy for that. I didn't even realize it!

And Nico. Yeah. I don't get all your goofy jingoistic crap.

It doesn't make me all warm and fuzzy to try to suggest an entire religion is "evil" and the enemy.

If Rudy was trying to suggest that Democrats are really concerned with offending terrorists, and if you actually think that's in any way the truth, then there's no other conclusion other than that you enjoy being lied to and choose to believe them.

When you can't be honest in making your points or attacks, then it's clear that you really don't have much to begin with.

Hope that works out for ya.

You are splitting hairs and you must be the only person in the country who thinks Rudy was swiping the whole religion.

Rudy said "Islamic terrorists". So what? That doesn't imply that they are all terrorists. If he did, he would say "Muslims" or "All Muslims". So to make the distinction he said "Islamic terrorists". ??!! Others refer to them as jihadists. 99.9% of the tv audience knows what he means ...seems pretty clear to me.

I haven't noticed any terrorists in the news who are red-headed Eskimos or Carmelite nuns.

Now true, there are other kinds of terrorists, yes.
Like these so-called "anarchists" who were outside the convention, throwing bottles, breaking car windows, slashing tires, harassing RNC delegates and trying to disrupt the convention. The last I read, over 300 of them were arrested. The cops had to use tear gas and so forth. Some of the protesters were reported to be wearing Obama shirts. No doubt, these rock throwers are part of your "Angry Left". They sure don't represent any of the positive change Obama is talking about.

But the terrorists who are most urgent on the world stage are the Islamic terrorists. Al-Quaida are Islamic terrorists. That seems pretty clear to me.

I am with Nico - you just don't get it TID (nothing new).

Islamic terrorists is not really a constituancy that the GOP wants to play to. I do appreciate that Obama does though.

Rudy was right on and gavce a great speech.

Huckabee was terrific as well,

"I am not a Republican because I was born rich, I am a Republican because I don't want to sit around being poor and waiting for someone to save me."

Listen Nico,

You don't have to worry about a few kids breaking windows. If you think THAT'S terrorism, you're a freaking lunatic.

If you have to worry about home-grown terrorists, why not worry about the only terrorists so far, who've all been RIGHT WING nut jobs.

McVeigh, the guy who bombed the Atlanta Olympics and gay bars and abortion clinics, the guy who murdered a doctor in cold blood, or for that matter the fine right winger who walked into a campaign office and shot and murdered the local head of the Democratic party not that long ago.

You wanna fret about murderous terrorists? Look to your own side of the political spectrum.

I can't think of ONE instance of any so-called radical "angry leftist" ever killing anyone.

Secondly, about what Rudy said, he clearly said that calling someone an Islamic terrorist would be insulting ... not Muslims, but TERRORISTS.

Don't know about you, but to me that means that it's worse to be called a Muslim than a terrorist.

Me,
Just keep being a stingy, dried up old fool who harbors a grudge against everyone. You won't have to give a dime to help anyone else, and you'll always be lower middle class.

But if you adopt the anymosity towards the poor that the rich peddle, then maybe you can at least PRETEND that you're one of them.

Anyone that says that Dems coddle terrorists or are any less agressive against terrorism is simply too idiotic to be taken seriously and should be treated like the ignorant tools they are.
