Rudy Giuliani had a bit of a slip up on CNN's State of the Union. After calling Mitt Romney "the perfect choice," he revisited some of his campaign rhetoric from when he was considering the Republican nomintion and put his job creation numbers right up against Romney's. To wit: "Well, I mean, there's a certain amount of personal ego in that — at that point, I was probably comparing his record to my record," he said about his dings at Romney. "And maybe it was circumstances or whatever, but I had massive reductions in unemployment. He had a reduction in unemployment of about 8,10 percent — I think it was 15 percent. I had a reduction of unemployment of 50 percent. He had a growth of jobs of about 40,000; we had a growth of jobs of about 500,000. So I was comparing what I thought was my far superior record to his otherwise decent record. ... That's all part of campaigning." Sensing he may have overstepped a line, he made sure to tell host Candy Crowley that Romney "has the better chance" of beating Obama in November. But then he also said it could be a toss up election: "If [Obama] gets an economy that's improving, then it's anybody's ballgame," he said.
John McCain attacked President Obama's lack of action in Syria, calling the U.S.'s response to the violence a “shameful episode in American history," during his appearance on Fox News Sunday. "Nearly 10,000 people have died. This is a brutal regime of incredible proportions," McCain said. "This administration has a feckless foreign policy that abandons American leadership. It cries out for American leadership; American leadership is not there," he said. He also accused the President of attempting to delay dealing with these issues until after the election. "This all has to do with a policy led by a president who does not believe in American exceptionalism," McCain said. "The only conclusion you can draw is that this president wants to kick the can down the road on all of these issues until after the election."
