The whole interview is fantastic, but here’s Rubio on President Obama. Click on the quote to get to the whole interview.
Well, here’s the problem. He has to be measured by an objective standard that every president has to be measured by. When I look at the selection next year, what he’s really gonna be coming to the American people and asking for is an extension to his contract. He wants a four-year extension to his contract to be president of the United States. So we have to measure him, and how do we measure him? Well, unemployment. Unemployment is higher, significantly higher than when he took over. You know, what about the value of people’s homes? The value of people’s homes are down. How about the national debt? The national debt is up significantly higher with no solution in sight and none offered by him.
By every measure that you can measure a president by, things have gotten worse, and significantly worse, and that’s what he has to be measured by, and part of it I think is a flawed ideology. His view of government and the people in his administration is a flawed view that takes us away from the things that have made America exceptional and part of it is, quite frankly, incompetence. I honestly believe, and I don’t say this with any disrespect, I really don’t know him, I have nothing personal against him but I honestly think there’s a lack of competence in terms of being able to do the job and the ability to lead on some of these critical issues and the result is being paid by, you know, millions of Americans who can’t find a job or are working twice as hard to make half as much, who see their country being bankrupted and no serious solutions being offered.
Update: Rubio put up a You Tube. Enjoy. H/t McMartin
