Clips From Friday: Rudy Giuliani criticizes Obama for campaigning; Red Cross addresses response delays following Sandy

Amidst continued recovery efforts following Superstorm Sandy, coupled with the upcoming general election, on Friday night Piers Morgan welcomed Rudy Giuliani for an energetic and impassioned live interview from Ohio.

The former Mayor of New York City has been a staunch supporter of Mitt Romney, and used his "Piers Morgan Tonight" platform to level heavy criticism on Barack Obama.

Suggesting that the president misappropriated his time by spending it on the campaign trail rather than directing efforts towards assisting victims of the storm, Giuliani channeled his inner Joe Torre by tossing out a baseball metaphor:

"Maybe the first couple of days, he was keeping his eye on the ball," said the one-time GOP presidential candidate. "But we got gas lines now that are a mile long. We got bodies still being discovered and we got a president who is playing, you know, 'campaigner-in-chief.'"

As part of Friday's program, Morgan also invited Gail McGovern to address concern regarding delayed responses and resources to some of the areas hit hardest by Sandy:

"My heart goes out to the people on Staten Island and the people up and down the Eastern Seaboard," said the President and CEO of The American Red Cross. "And I completely understand why the people in Staten Island are frustrated."

"We're frustrated, too," she continued. "We had sent out emergency response vehicles before this cry for help came. But I completely understand why folks are frustrated. And we were able to break through yesterday. The roads are snarled. There are fuel issues. We're sending volunteers from all over the country, almost all 50 states."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as "Piers Morgan Tonight" continues to detail the devastation, and subsequent recovery, amidst the aftermath of "Superstorm Sandy."

      Why does Giullani not take care of his children? He has been a no show father.

        This was on CNN. Giuliani is not like Jeb Bush. Jeb stays away from media before any one googles on him.

    "Yes, and you too Pierse. Not just because I already know most of your programming is already pre-recorded, but also becomming too much of a CNN bias, and have lost your independence. I take most of what you say with a pich of sathese days. Romney will win on Tuesday, and Obama will go to prison for Treason in2013. Those are two things even CNN won't change!"

      For the same reason that Donald Trump did not take Mark Cuban up on his offer to give ONE MILLION DOLLARS TO CHARITY if Donald Trump would shave his hair bald. It’s the principle that others should not dictate to you what you should do. TRUMP SHOULD H SAVE HIS HEAD THOUGH…and show a good example as his mouth does.

    you are supposed to give news that ' all not impose your opinion. That is why I listen to BBC. May be you can learn something. I am working in a different state becuse I could not find a jos in my state. Now some of these jobs are going to India. What do you have to say for that. Media is all over the place because of the addvertisement saying that the jobs are going to china. Buy something and see what the label says about where it is made " China "

      Thank you Preddy. The media is like Pimps selling to the highest bidder. Nothing TRUTHFUL comes from 90 percent of them. Even PBS & NPR is not accurate. Thomas Pererffy has spent several million dollars pushing for Romney in advertisements alone on CNN and other media. Trump has done the same, not to forget Romney had paid over 42 million I understand last week from his own money towards advertisements. This money could have been used towards Sandy victims. $ 5000 worth of can goods does not go far the media forget to tell that was used for a photo shoot by Romney. The People of United States are suffering.... While few fat cows are getting richer lacking morals.
      Thomas Pererffy supports Romney why ?

    Why did Rudy Giuliani want the media to to respect the privacy of his adult daughter Caroline?
    We all understand Caroline Giuliani is voting for President Obama.

    Rudy Glulani is a looser ..... Who cares what he has to say about President Obama ? How much was he paid to open his mouth? Rudy is such a sleaze bag. Why not bring all his wives and X's on. A good distraction to what's going on in the real news world.

    Doesn’t Rudy Giuliani realize there is a BIG DIFFERENCE in him dealing with the disaster/tragedy of 911 which was a few miles in radius or Bush dealing with Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy which was more than two times the size of Katrina? Giuliani and a few areas are the only ones complaining, while the mayors and Governors’ are commending President Obama and FEMA for their great job so far??

      Rudy could not take care of his family. The rescue of 9/11 was done by workers who were much to busy to be giving Tv.
      Gluliani knew about the threat so did Bush. What did they do regarding this? 9/11 could have been prevented, Sandy could not.

    Boy oh boy.....This election cycle is sure delivering a lot of crazy old fools who are way past their time. Don't any of these guys ( Eastwood, Guiliani, Trump etc.) have family or friends that could counsel them against behavior that makes them look the fool ?

      These men are stupid fool. A typical example of men who are taking testron enhancer, over use has effected there brain cells. Don't forget to add Newt Gingrich and Thomas Pererffy Into the pool of creepy crawlers. They are bipolar men not wanted by there own family and friends they have hanging around them are only the crump collectors. People who talk about Religious or moral values always lack both.
      Rudy Glullani wives and children are voting for President Obama.

    Have you noticed that you really do not need to see who is talking, just listen and you can determine what party they belone to! The EX-mayor is just spouting HIS support for his party!! Actually his comments show how our politicians will say & do anything to get their person elected! The things that I saw and heard was that President Obama was doing his job, extremely well! Don't forget Gov. Christies praise on how Obama was HELPING him get the things he badly needed. Actually both candidates stopped their campaigns in the aftermath of sandy! And BOTH starting back at the same times!!

    How come when you people in the media talk about jobs & unimployment you don<t include the 200,000 baby boomers that are retiring every month. Not paying as much in taxes. Their jobs being replaced by someone is not creating jobs
