RUDY GIULIANI: But just to get relevant to what is going on right now, it's outrageous to the President of the United States is not in the situation room right now, planning to destroy ISIS.
NEIL CAVUTO (HOST): What do you think the argument is, it's better that he's not? I talked to a Romney supporter who is saying "You know, if he came rushing back, he would look frantic, and he's going about his business like he tells people."
GIULIANI: That would be like Franklin Roosevelt remaining at Warm Springs when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.
CAVUTO: But that was an attack on us, you know what I'm saying?
GIULIANI: This is an attack on one of our allies. We belong to NATO.
GIULIANI: And what's he doing? He's sitting with a dictator --
CAVUTO: Watching a baseball game.
GIULIANI: He's sitting with a dictator, watching a baseball game, while innocent people are being killed in a war.
CAVUTO: He doesn't equate it that way. You know what, and he said this before that --
GIULIANI: Well then he should give the job to somebody else.
CAVUTO: The terror incidents -- you don't obviously agree with that. But if you were there now and looking at what you have to do, what do you do?
GIULIANI: Well so far, his strategy hasn't been working, right? Bush took 9/11 really seriously. He hit them back like hell, right? And we didn't get a terror incident from then on. He has been in office now for eight years and we've had four, five, six, seven? I mean, obviously he is not scaring them. They don't -- there is no worry about Barack Obama doing anything. He is a member --
GIULIANI: But if the President of the United States, who is the leader of the free world, or used to be the leader of the free world, took charge, we would have a plan. The plan should be, and I heard General Keane earlier, no plan. They should be in the situation room right now, and here is what the plan should be. What do we have to do to destroy ISIS? No time limit. none of this ridiculously insane, I think Biden invented time limits, time limits on wars. Imagine if we fought the Civil War with a time limit. We would have quit after three years, and we'd be a divided country. So here is the plan. Destroy ISIS. You're gone. You should give a speech tonight.
