Rudy on teachable moment: "Shut up"

Last night, Rudy Giuliani stopped by to chat with Sean Hannity, and weighed in on Gates-gate and Barack Obama's response to it.

"He's [Obama's] actually right. It is teachable. Here's the lesson: Shut up."

The suddenly visible Rudy also hit the administration hard on health care.

"So far the damage that the Obama administration has done to our economy is very, very serious. I think more than any President has done ever, in a short period of time.

But most of it's reversible. It's about spending money, it's about deficits, it's about ultimately inflation. This would be almost irreversible.... Obama's made all those big spenders look like amateurs."

He also pulled the mask from blue-dog Democrats.

"They're essentially not economic conservatives. they're essentially either moderates or liberals in districts that require them to be that way. So they're doing a show, rather than coming from the heart."
