Rudy Promotes Mitt By Touting His Own “Far Superior Record”
With endorsements like this Mitt Romney doesn’t need detractors. Candy Crowley on CNN wanted to know how Rudy Giuliani’s support of Romney now compares to his criticism four years ago.
“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.”
