“WHO SHOULD AMERICA LISTEN TO?-A decorated soldier’s commitment to defending America, or Hillary Clinton’s commitment to defending MoveOn.org?”

The Hill reported:

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said Thursday that he is asking The New York Times for the “same heavily discounted rate they gave MoveOn.org” for his campaign to run an ad in Friday’s paper.

Giuliani, calling MoveOn.org’s controversial “General Betray Us” ad “abominable,” said his campaign is asking the paper for a comparable rate for an ad to run following President Bush’s speech on Iraq.

The former mayor said his ad “will obviously take the opposite view” from MoveOn.org, which argued in its ad that Gen. David Petraeus is “cooking the books” on Iraq and cherry-picking facts that support his recommendation to keep a large number of troops in Iraq for some time.

Giuliani continued to include Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in his criticisms for her comments that it would take “a willing suspension of disbelief” to accept at face value Petraeus’s report on the situation in Iraq. Giuliani interpreted Clinton’s remarks at a hearing earlier this week as questioning the general’s integrity.

“We think that her attack on Gen. Petraeus was a follow-up to the MoveOn.org/Times attack,” Giuliani told reporters in Atlanta.

Giuliani reiterated that he agrees with Petraeus’s assessment of the Iraq war, and called MoveOn.org’s ad attacking “an American general in a time of war” unprecedented.

** FRED THOMPSON also attacked the Democrats and MoveOn for their campaign against General Petraeus today:

Fred Thompson fired back on Hillary and democrats for their despicable attacks on General Petraeus:

“It’s more and more apparent to me every day that the average 20 year old who is serving us in Iraq knows more about national security than many of the 20 year veterans in Congress.”

Amen.
And… The GOP came out with an ad today against the democratic attacks on Petraeus:

HotAir has the video.

** Here’s the latest disgusting Leftwing attack on Petraeus!

MORE… Senator John McCain also left a message for democratic presidential candidates, via Instapundit and The Corner:

“If you’re not tough enough to repudiate a scurrilous, outrageous attack such as that, then I don’t know how you’re tough enough to be President of the United States.”

Or, FOX News for that matter!
