Giuliani Calls for Obama to Resign for “Incompetence” Over Benghazi Attack and the Economy

Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has  blasted President Obama for ‘incompetence’ over the attack on the U.S consulate  in Benghazi.

Speaking in Ohio at a rally for Republican  presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Giuliani said Obama should resign over his  handling of the economy.

Giuliani told a 30,000-strong crowd at The  Square at Union Centre, West Chester, that the Obama administration should be ‘ashamed of themselves’ for claiming that the latest job figures were a positive  sign.

The figures, announced on Friday, showed that  the unemployment rate had increased by a point to 7.9 per cent during  October.

Rudy Giuliani addressed a 30,000-strong crowd in Ohio yesterday to urge them to vote for Republican candidate Mitt Romney in Tuesday’s election

In an impassioned speech, Giuliani referred  to a 2009 interview in which Obama vowed  to turn the economy around in three years, otherwise he would be a ‘one-term  proposition’.

He said: ‘He should resign. He told us he  would resign if he did this poorly.

‘He lied. He has been a disaster. The worst  president for our economy in our lifetime.

‘He doesn’t want a second term. He wants a  second chance, because he screwed it up the first time.’

The majority of polls show President Obama  holds a narrow lead in Ohio, a vital swing state, and across the nation.

But the margins in seven key swing states – including Obama’s lead in Ohio, and Romney’s leads in Florida and Virginia – are  less than three per cent, or within the polls’ margins of error.

Guiliani, who failed to win the Republican presidential nomination in 2008, also slammed Democrats for making Romney’s business experience with private equity firm Bain Capital a target on the campaign trail.

He said: ‘They tried to humiliate him because  of that. You know something, if Governor Romney can have the  success for  America that he had for Bain Capital, thank God! Our people  would be working  again.’

The biggest applause during Giuliani’s speech  came when he argued that the  attack on the Benghazi consulate would not have  happened if Senator John McCain had won the 2008 election.

The biggest applause during Giuliani’s speech  came when he argued that the attack on the Benghazi consulate would not have  happened if Senator John McCain had won the 2008 election.

The attack, which killed four Americans,  including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, took place on September 11 this  year.

He said: ‘You know that what happened in  Libya is the result, at least, of incompetence.

‘Maybe if we had a president who was paying  attention, we wouldn’t be going through all this investigation of what’s being  covered up about Libya.’

Giuliani claimed the attack on the U.S consulate in  Benghazi on September 11 this year would not have happened if Senator John  McCain had beaten Obama to the White House in 2008

Giuliani ended with a plea to the Ohio  audience to vote for Romney on Tuesday.

He said: ‘You know what stands in his way?  You know what’s going to stop him? Ohio! You’re going to do it.’

Guiliani spoke at the rally along side 2008  presidential nominee Senator  John McCain, Ohio Governor John Kasich, Ohio  Senator Rob Portman and  Speaker of the House John Boehner.

Prior to the speakers, thousands of Romney  supporters jammed the area around the stage, chanting ‘four more days’ in  reference to the time remaining on this presidential term for Obama.
