(CNN) – Rudy Giuliani is the star of a new robocall from the McCain campaign and the Republican National Committee that seeks to portray Barack Obama as soft on crime.
In the new call, to be blasted to voters in several swing states, the former federal prosecutor and New York City mayor says Obama opposes "mandatory prison sentences for sex offenders, drug dealers, and murderers."
"You need to know that Barack Obama opposes mandatory prison sentences for sex offenders, drug dealers, and murderers," Giuliani says in the call. "It's true, I read Obama's words myself. And recently, congressional liberals introduced a bill to eliminate mandatory prison sentences for violent criminals - trying to give liberal judges the power to decide whether criminals are sent to jail or set free."
"With priorities like these, we just can't trust the inexperience and judgment of Barack Obama and his liberal allies," Giuliani says.
Listen: Giuliani narrates the McCain/RNC's latest robocall
The Obama campaign did not have an immediate comment, but according to its Web site, the Illinois senator does support "reforming mandatory minimum prison sentences."
"Every leading expert body in criminal justice has opposed the use of mandatory minimum sentences, including the Sentencing Commission, the Judicial Conference, the American Bar Association, and leading criminal justice scholars," his Web site ways.
Giuliani's robocall comes a week after the Republican National Committee and the McCain campaign blasted a robocall to swing-state voters highlighting the Democratic presidential candidate's connection to 1960's radical William Ayers.
Those calls have drawn criticism from a handful of vulnerable Senate Republicans wary of turning off independent voters, including Maine's Susan Collins, Minnesota's Norm Coleman and Oregon's Gordon Smith.
Giuliani is even filthier than the rest of the McCain campaign. His smugness at the RNC showed he should not hold any public office as he thinks he is too good to deal with regular people.
The world is watching.
This from the man who was instrumental in giving America George W. Bush.
I dont think so Mr. 9/11! Go back to New York and get back under your rock!
Rudy, just go back to whatever it is you do.
WOW how long has it been since he held office?
Biden had the best line ever about Giuliani, the one that in every sentence he uses a noun, a verb, and 9/11.
Giuliani was great as the mayor of NYC in cleaning up the city and dealing with crime. After that, it was all downhill to the point where he's now a total joke.
Rudy the Idiot is another non-issue. GOP really knows how to waste their money. If your going to spread something, try spreading the truth!!!
So Giulianni interupting people during their dinner hour with robocalls is McCain's new weapon? Isn't Giulianni the same guy who spent the entire Republican primary season in Florida and still finished 3rd in the state? Isn't Giulianni the same guy who pimped out 9/11 during his speech at the Republican convention? What a loser.
And by the way, I'm a prosecutor (just like Giulianni used to be); mandatory minimums don't work.
FEAR FEAR FEAR FEAR FEAR FEAR FEAR......
That's all the republicans have!
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Can you say President Obama?
Does anyone even care about Guliani anymore? His only claim to fame is a national tragedy that he was foisted upon him. Every time he defends the Republican BS, I just want to puke. How anyone can defend the decisions of the McCain campaign with a straight face says more about their personal character than the sad state of the campaign itself. That's saying a lot.
If I were a republican I would be embarressed to admit it.
I know you cannot support or agree with the actions
your party is taking.
They have become so radical, so dishonorable, so
extreme with their campaigning.
No wonder our country is in such a mess. Look at the
caliber of the people who have been running it.
There is no level as to how low they will stoop.
Who is Ruddy Julliani?
If Robo calls win crucial elections, why did he not use it to win the GOP nomination.
Enough of these clowns parading as leaders. Americans have better values!!!
Anyone remember how popular Rudy was on September 10, 2001?
When someone has to say "It's true..." you can be sure it's not.
get out of the way Rudy, a new generation is a coming!
These people will reap the whirl wind when the election is over. Shame on all the GOP.
You can lie, You can bare false witness, you can hate, and you can lie some more. IT JUST WON'T WORK! And they know it's not working. I can feel their anger and frustration from here. It burns like fire consuming their souls.
I believe that even if Obama does not win The Great State of Texas, he will most certainly win The City Of Houston
VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS
VOTE FOR OBAMA
THAT ONE '08
Did Obama have a short relationship with a male midgit in late 90's??? I have got to know this before I vote!!!
Some how Giuliani thought that he qualified to become president but he drop out after the first primary started.
I thought this hacks 15 minutes was up when the Florida folks sent him home crying. Only a Republican would lump Obama with such a distinguished group and then badmouth the group. Does the GOP really think that people are that stupid and gullible (aside from the "twenty-four percenters")?
Has anyone mentioned that most people hang up on robocalls?
Caller ID is a beautiful thing.
Who wants to listen to some old man with a cartoon voice anyway?
Giuliani's lisp sounds like he's spitting into the phone. Gross!
The robo calls and negative ads are totally demeaning to the intelligence of the American people and the political system. Talk about the issues!!!!!! The slimy use of the facts is a turn-off.
Never heard a word from this fool regarding McCain's robocall lies!
Well, if it is Giuliani speaking nobody will be able to understand a word of it, anyway.
Hey Dems...Looks like Obama's got it in the bag...No need to vote now . Call and tell all your friends the good news, especially you guys that registered multiple times. All there is to do now is sit at home and wait for your check.... And just think of your dumb company owner where you work, he has to work even harder to pay for it all, what a dope. Yes Sir...were well on our way to a wonderful economic recovery.
