Rubio on Obama’s record

Since his maiden Senate floor speech on Tuesday, Senator Marco Rubio has been active in discussing his vision for a new American century and contrasting that to President Obama’s policies which seem to be rooted in a much different vision. He went on Laura Ingram’s radio show and hit hard:

“There’s no way you can look at the policies that this president has pursued and not reach the conclusion that at least people in his administration do not buy into the American free-enterprise system, that they feel that somehow maybe the way the other countries have done it is better,” said Rubio. “I don’t think history is on their side. As I just told a group a moment ago, give me an example of a country that embraced big government and found prosperity. Because there isn’t any, not in history, and not in modern times. The truth is that we should not be implementing the policies of countries that people come here to get away from. And if you look at the direction and expansion of government’s role in our economy, that this administration is pursuing, I think that’s the direction they’re taking us, pretty clearly.”
