Giuliani: The "Teachable" Lesson Of Gates: "Shut Up"

Rudy Giuliani was on Hannity's Fox News show Thursday night and agreed with President Obama that the Henry Gates arrest was a "teachable moment." The lesson? "Shut up."

"He's actually right. It is teachable. Here's the lesson: Shut up" when confronted by a police officer, the former mayor of New York City said.

Giuliani went on to criticize President Obama's economic policy, claiming: "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."
