Rubio: Obama's Not a Bad Person: 'Our Problem Is, He's a Bad President'
CNS News ^ | 8/31/2012 | Susan Jones

Posted on 09/01/2012 6:15:48 AM PDT by IbJensen

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."

Wrongo, Marco!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

“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.

Ob has done so much to ruin our country. He did this by acting on his ideology.

How can this not mean he is a bad person?

It’s not as if he is sorry for having defied the Constitution and will change his course. He’s just begun.

People say we can’t survive a second term.

We won’t survive the first six months.

Honestly, how anyone can like Rubio, I don’t get. Just a quick study of his attitudes is chilling.

Rubio: Obama’s Not a Bad Person: ‘Our Problem Is, He’s a Bad President’
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Thats the trouble with RINOs. They cannot face the fact that Obama in fact is a bad person, proven by his work with the ( Muslim) Orange Party
of Kenya in 2006/2007 and the resulting intertribal genocide there because of Obama’s work with Rial Odinga. Very bad person.

We need to undo the MSM myth that Obama can do no wrong. He has done horrible things, especially in Libya, Afghanistan, and Western Pakistan, as well as Kenya. Its all going to catch up to him.

Well, people like him do not look at this as destruction, but rebuilding into a “fairer” society. Then there are the Soros types that love to control and degrade people. Obama is the amiable socialist type otherwise people would have seen the meanness coming through and he never would have gotten elected.
But of course, the evil spirit within is from the same place.

Brilliant! Brilliant! A psychological attack! For now let the opposition maintain the insignificant part of their delusion, ‘Obama is a good person” and hit them with the reality of the most important part of their delusion that “Obama is NOT a good president” nor was he ever good presidential material. Hopefully the press will be fascinated by this, question it and present it to the msm fed masses, some of whom might actually begin to question what they have been being fed.

You have a good point, but then they could just leave the subject alone.

Some on this side seem to like Rubio for the same shallow reasons the others like OB.

Hello....people wake up.....it was a set up for a joke about Obama run for a spot on the PGA....

Plus.... Sometimes telling the truth will turn off the mindless middle who are just now paying attention....Cut from the same cloth as that evil bastard Castro

Rubio being from Cuban political refugees I am sure he sees exactly who and what Obama is...

Being “from something” should give one reason to hope somebody is something, but to be so certain?

Watch Rubio’s actions and attitudes. I hope he’s okay, but let me put it this way, the ruling that one must be of natural born descent in order to run for the presidency came from what sentiment? the sense of priviledge or the need for protection?

rubio might turn out to be great for us, for all I know, but can’t we observe and then decide?

he gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Personally, I think he’s evil incarnate but when Rubio said that, I LOL.

It was a very polite, social high-ground, back-handed bitch slap, IMO.

I too think Obama is perhaps the first truly evil President hell-bent on the destruction of our country that we have ever had.

That said, Rubio’s comments are brilliant political strategy. They blunt that whole “likeability” thing that was supposed to propel Baraq to re-election.

Now the brain dead who voted for the Kenyan last time who are bitterly disappointed because he came in and made things much worse, can vote against him without feelings of guilt because they still are able to say “it’s nothing personal”.

Look, WE know he’s evil.
I’m just saying, there are people who respond to these things...like the biographical info in 2016 with; “Aww poor baby, he came up through such harsh circumstances; no daddy, etc.”

The ‘spoonful of sugar’ is humor. Ridicule. Look at the empty chair, and how it has them twisting! THAT’S the answer here. How do we know ridicule gets to them the most?
Zero even tweeted about it! He HAD to respond. He’s DRIVEN to it. What do narcissists HATE the most - besides themselves? Yep. Ridicule.

Adopting the ‘bad man’ theme is as bad as the ‘good man’ theme. BOTH are LOSERS.

FR is a veritable GOLD MINE of ridicule.
I soooo wish the dummies on ‘our side’ would use it - and hammer it!

You know what we’d see?
On-the-fencers laughing at him,
and? (my hoped-for)
Zero. Absolutely. Unraveling.

The first few comments on here are proof once again why I am glad many Freepers aren't in any position to run a campaign. We wouldn't even have (R) dog-catchers if they did.

Of course Obama is a bad person...but the idea that some of you think the GOP leadership can go out there and say that and not loose votes is silly. The dim/MSM slime machine would distract the undecideds from the real issues onto this one issue...which frankly is a matter of opinion and not fact...

And we would have that bad person for another 4 years.

Again...please...none of you get in any positions to run any important campaigns.

I try not to comment about “birthed” posts but your comment borders on the absurd...

You are implying that because Rubio parents escaped from a communist hell hole like Cuba, we need to observe him to make sure his parents are not loyal to Cuba...

The man was born in this country....raised in this country, is a citizen of this country...

Granted there was ample reason to check loyalties at the founding of this country....
