Democrats criticize Giuliani comments on Obama's patriotism

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) Democrats are assailing former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for questioning President Barack Obama's love of country. And they're urging the potential field of Republican presidential candidates to rebuke his comments.

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said at a DNC meeting that now is the time for Republican leaders to "stop this nonsense."

Giuliani said at a New York event on Wednesday night that he didn't believe Obama "loves America" and that Obama was not "brought up the way you were brought up."

The private dinner was attended by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who is considering a 2016 campaign. Giuliani's comments were reported by Politico.

Wasserman Schultz says she often disagreed with former President George W. Bush and Republicans in Congress but never questioned their patriotism.
