Giuliani A No-Show At Iraq Study Group

Republican presidential contender Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday it was a mistake for him to join the Iraq Study Group, on which he lasted just two months and failed to show up for any official meetings.
The former New York mayor has tried to tamp down criticism in recent days after Newsday reported that Giuliani was a no-show for two of the group's meetings and instead attended paid public appearances.
How can we forget that he has made over $66 million dollars in speeches off of the tragedy of 9/11. Now we know where his priorities lie. Maybe he was afraid that being part of the group would have meant having to go to Iraq. And in another example of his hypocricy:

In his speech, Giuliani called for the country to enact a constitutional amendment that allows for a line-item veto so the president could strip wasteful spending from legislation. "The president doesn't have that power under our Constitution," he said. "You're only going to change that with a constitutional amendment."
As mayor in the 1990s, Giuliani successfully sued to challenge the constitutionality of the line-item veto that would have given President Clinton that such power.
Giuliani is an opportunist who has made a fortune off the deaths of 3000 people killed on 9/11. This gives blood money a whole new meaning.
