CNSNews.com) - Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), endorsing Mitt Romney for president Thursday night in Tampa, said Romney is the man who can successfully change the direction of the country -- which is going "backwards" under President Obama, he said.
"Our problem with President Obama isn't that he's a bad person. By all accounts, he too is a good husband, and a good father -- and thanks to lots of practice, a pretty good golfer. Our problem is he's a bad president," Rubio said.
The senator noted that the new slogan for the Obama presidential campaign is "Forward."
"A government that spends $1 trillion more than it takes in. An $800 billion stimulus that created more debt than jobs. A government intervention into health care paid for with higher taxes and cuts to Medicare. Scores of new rules and regulations.
"These ideas don't move us 'Forward,' they take us 'Backwards.'
"These are tired and old big government ideas -- ideas that people come to America to get away from. Ideas that threaten to make America more like the rest of the world, instead of helping the world become more like America."
Rubio said on Obama's watch, "the only 'change' is that 'hope' has been hard to find.
"Now millions of Americans are insecure about their future. But instead of inspiring us by reminding us of what makes us special, he divides us against each other. He tells Americans they're worse off because others are better off. That people got rich by making others poor.
"Hope and Change has become Divide and Conquer," Rubio said.
"No matter how you feel about President Obama, this election is about your future, not his. And it's not simply a choice between a Democrat and a Republican. It's a choice about what kind of country we want America to be."
Obozo IS a bad person. He's a bonafide phony from Africa who has a murky past of homosexual behavior, dope smoking and Communist indoctrination!
I want the John Doe who calls himself Barack Hussein Obama out of our White House and denied a pension and benefits he'll receive for ruining our nation and our economy!
Exactly—he IS a bad person too. Will never forget that speech where he gave McCain the middle finger. Unfortunately, you can’t point these things out without appearing “mean” and “racist”.
Agreed. There’s every indication that he is a bad person in many ways. This is not unusual for Marxists and corrupt politicians in general. For one thing, wanting to accrue power by any means necessary and then use the power to force people to do what you want, rather than what they want, is in itself a “bad person” quality.
Obama is pure EVVVVVVVVVVVVVEL!!
Hussein IS a bad person.
A VERY bad spawn of pure evil.
Ya just can’t SAY it as a candidate—’cause the leftwing MSM will get its panties in EVEN MORE of a twist than usual.
Softly, softly catchee monkey.................
O come on now...we have been destroyed many years ago with the “great society” crap from Johnson and many others in a long line of big government spenders. Obama is just a bit better brainwashed into communism than the others. That is why he seems and is a decent father...this has become a religion to him and many other communists. The more we can see this, the stronger we can fight them and not hate them!
Is “monkey” waycisssst?
Why is it that Republicans cannot just go and call a spade a spade?They always have to go through some verbal gyrations to conceal what they really mean.
To me that shows weakness.You never see the RATs doing that and they call our President the worse thing immaginable and they’re never held to account for it.
It time for the Republican’s to grow a pair,Or let a few woman like Sara Palin out on the attack.Sara has the ability to make the liberals look like idiots without them even knowing it.
Obama IS a bad person........ geez, am I sensing some sort of consensus here?
Yes, Obambi IS a bad person, something I believe also.
I think he is totally counterfeit, much like the billions
of counterfeit dollars he has (as Ryan said ) not only SPENT and WASTED, but BORROWED, spent and wasted. Calling him a bad person at this point, though, would be counter-productive for the purposes of winning an election. I will gladly balance the current narrative of “he’s not a bad person” (notice how that’s changed from the really pukey “he’s a nice guy”?) with Eastwood’s “well, maybe he IS, when you look at some of those ads he’s put out”. REMEMBER, it’s important to have BALANCE is these narratives!
since when is a communist usurper fraud & forger NOT a bad person? Wake the freak up rubio!
Right! He SEEMS to be a decent father.
How this pathetic sociopath fathered two daughters after having been indoctrinated in homosexuality and communism is a mystery.
I suppose he had to make some sacrifices in order to fulfill his mission of destruction!
“Obozo IS a bad person.”
So what? Rubio is not trying to get your vote for Romney. He already has it. (Unless you plan to sit at home or vote third-party and let that bad person regain the White House.)
Rubio and Romney are trying to get the votes of those that voted for Obama idealistically thinking that Obama was a post-racial, post-partisan candidate. You might think that is a load of fetid dingo’s kidneys (I certainly do), but that is how about five to ten percent of those who voted for Obama actually felt.
So how do you get those people to change their votes? Not by calling them stupid by pointing out that Obama is evil. Rather, by painting Obama as a nice guy who is over his head. That gives them a rationale for changing their vote. It wasn’t that they were lied to (which means they were stupid for believing a liar). It is just that Obama could not deliver on what he promised because — despite his best intentions - he was not up to the job.
This is called a polite fiction.
Let me put it this way. You see someone standing on the ledge of a building, just outside the window, four stories up. Which approach is more likely to get him to get him back in the building rather than jumping:
1. Tell him “Geexe. Do you know what a moron you look like out there? You might as well paint a big sign on your forehead that says ‘Big-time Loser’ - ‘cause that is what you will be if you jump, dummy.”
2. Tell him “Look - what every caused you to get out there it cannot be as bad as you think it is. Come on back inside, and let’s talk about it over coffee. You just had bad information. We can fix it.”
And remember your safety is also tied into the decision these first-term Obama voters make. If enough of them jump (vote for Obama), he gets re-elected.
That finger is usually hidden where the sun doesn’t shine.
While Obama is not a good person, Rubio was on the nose with every statement, clear and concise.
Exactly. Republicans seem to be compelled to always preface criticism with compliment. It is weak. Rubio and many pubbies like him, give the impression that they and Obama have the same values and goals, it’s just that Obama isn’t effective. What spineless crap.
Anyone who believes a baby born after a failed abortion should be left to die is a bad person. Obama is beyond a bad person - he is evil!
