Giuliani No Respect for Dead?

We all know who the heroes of 9/11 were - the New York Fire Department, the firefighters.

And a lot of us think that the man who led them all that day and afterwards was Rudy Giuliani.

Well, the firefighters union don't think so. In fact, they think so little of Rudy Giuliani that they're holding a BIPARTISAN presidential debate AND they're not inviting him.

John Edwards, John McCain, Barack Obama, Chuck Hagel, Hillary Clinton, Chris Dodd, Joe Biden, Duncan Hunter and seven other candidates are invited. Rudy Giuliani is SO not invited that the Firefighters' Union wrote an open letter to Giuliani explaining why.

This is the crux of their reasoning:
Mayor Giuliani's actions meant that fire fighters and citizens who perished would either remain buried at Ground Zero forever, with no closure for families, or be removed like garbage and deposited at the Fresh Kills Landfill.

This mayor would rather expedite the removal of the debris for appearance's sake, rather than let the families of the heroes have some closure.

Kind of explains why Rudy Giuliani would choose to tell Donna Hanover about their impending divorce on television instead of in person, doesn't it. Different scale but same M.O.

This is the man Republicans want as their candidate? Someone the Firefighters Union would publically diss like this. Guess they can't do much better.
