Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani had harsh words for President Barack Obama during a campaign stop in Las Vegas, saying he has accomplished nothing and will turn the nation more socialist than France if re-elected.

“What do we want to elect, an unsuccessful person? We tried that, OK, we tried a person of no accomplishment,” Giuliani said. “Now let’s try something different, let’s try a man who has actually been successful in life.”

Giuliani told reporters Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney has strong convictions, and the health care overhaul he passed as Massachusetts governor isn’t a liability. Giuliani criticized Romney’s health care law last year because it served as a model for the federal health care overhaul that Republicans want repealed.
