Florida Senator Marco Rubio Introduces Mitt Romney at the RNC in Tampa, FL …” Our Problem Isn’t that Barack Obama is a Bad Person, Our Problem is he is a Bad President”


Another GOP superstar hits it out of the park …

Senator Marco Rubio (FL-R) rocked the house in Tampa, FL at the RNC convention as the home town hero and GOP rock star inspired the Republican faithful. Tonight Rubio introduced GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney. But before he did, Rubio took the opportunity to talk about Romney’s past and blasted Barack Obama’s failed presidency. As reported at the WSJ, In a rousing speech infused with the theme of American exceptionalism, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio introduced Mitt Romney to those gathered for the Republican National Convention’s culminating moment. Rubio had line after line of American exceptionalism and Obama’s lack there of.

“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.”

The full text of Rubio’s speech can be read at RCP. Here are some excerpts from Rubio’s speech:

 The new slogan for the president’s 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.

Then Rubio discussed Obama’s change from 2008 to 2012, what happened to any positive message?

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 questions Obama’s forward these as individuals come to America to get away from these types of ideas.

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.

What a personal touch Rubio added talking of his father’s sacrifice so that his son could do better.

He stood behind a bar in the back of the room all those years, so one day I could stand behind a podium in the front of a room.

That journey, from behind that bar to behind this podium, goes to the essence of the American miracle — that we’re exceptional not because we have more rich people here.

      I did disagree with the above words of Marco Rubio in his otherwise inspiring NRC speech of yesterday evening.

      A Marxist/Socialist who deceived many liberals in 2008 by plying for the highest office in the land under the Democrat Party banner is a “bad person” in my world.

      I cannot comprehend the silence forthcoming from Mitt Romney and RNC speakers regarding Barack Obama’s past Marxist/Socialist associations that has formed his worldview and the silence regarding those that surround him in the White House who embrace a like-minded ideology.

      It makes sense that Americans who don’t get it must be informed prior to casting that precious ballot.
      Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA (1981-1989)
      “Back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for President on the Socialist Party ticket, said that the American people would never vote for socialism but he said under the name of liberalism the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program.”

      Michelle Malkin to Mitt Romney: Stop Calling Barack Obama a “Nice Guy” If You Want to Get Elected
      April 26, 2012

      Conservative columnist Michelle Malkin is getting a lot of feedback for recent comments addressed to Mitt Romney, basically saying that if the presumptive GOP presidential nominee wants to win in November, he needs to stop calling President Obama a “nice guy.”

      Romney’s repetitive use of the phrase to describe Obama may be reminiscent to some of Sen. John McCain’s own terminology for the then-senator, calling him “a decent person.” According to Malkin, if Romney plans to “sell himself to the American people beyond the Republican party, he needs to ‘de-program’ those words from his mouth.”

      “It’s not just the Republican base that has come to realize that Barack Obama is far from a nice man,” she said. “There have been many targets of the Obama administration who don’t have Rs by their names.”

      Romney Condemns Ad Proposal Using Reverend Wright
      Published: May 17, 2012

      Mitt Romney on Thursday condemned plans by Republican strategists and a billionaire investor to run a $10-million advertising campaign linking President Obama to the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, his incendiary former pastor.

      “I repudiate that effort,” Mr. Romney told reporters at an impromptu news conference Thursday in Jacksonville, Fla. “I think it’s the wrong course for a PAC or a campaign.” …

      Authors of the 54-page proposal to Mr. Ricketts wrote that “with your preliminary approval at the New York meeting, we have discussed this plan in highly confidential terms with the following proposed team members.”

      “All are ready to jump into action upon plan approval,” the proposal said.

      Romney Condemns Ad Proposal Using Reverend Wright
      Published: May 17, 2012

      The proposal to use Mr. Obama’s association with Mr. Wright quickly brought comparisons between Mr. Romney and Senator John McCain of Arizona, the Republican presidential nominee in 2008.

      Mr. McCain spoke forcefully during that campaign in defense of Mr. Obama, saying on Fox News that Mr. Wright’s rhetoric “are statements that none of us would associate ourselves with.”

      “I don’t believe that Senator Obama would support any of those as well,” he said.

      On Thursday, Mr. McCain indicated that he would again forbid advisers from using material about Mr. Wright.

      “Senator McCain is very proud of the campaign he ran in 2008,” said Brian Rogers, Mr. McCain’s spokesman. “He stands by the decisions he made during that race and would make them again today.”

      Rage rising on the McCain campaign trail
      October 10, 2008

      At a rally in Minnesota on Friday, a woman told McCain: “I don’t trust Obama. I have read about him and he’s an Arab.”

      McCain shook his head and said, “No ma’am, no ma’am. He’s a decent family man…[a] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues. That’s what this campaign is all about.”

      One man at the rally said he was “scared of an Obama presidency.” McCain later told the man he should not fear Obama.

      “I want to be president of the United States, and I don’t want Obama to be,” he said. “But I have to tell you, I have to tell you, he is a decent person, and a person that you do not have to be scared as President of the United States.”

      McCain’s response was met with boos from the crowd.

      The bias liberal major networks? The silence forthcoming from prominent Republicans?

      If not informed many democrats will cast that precious ballot for Barack Obama without knowledge of his far left ideology that goes beyond liberalism.

      Sarah Palin: Jeremiah Wright Is Fair Game05/22/2012

      During an appearance on Fox News on Monday night, Sarah Palin signaled her belief that Rev. Jeremiah Wright shouldn’t be off-limits as an issue in the presidential election.

      Addressing the president’s ties to his former pastor, Palin argued that the controversial figure should be fair game in the race for the White House.

      She explained, “I thought so in 2008, and that’s why I went rogue, if you will and disagreed with some of John McCain’s advisers when they said no a lot of these issues like past associations and Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers and those that helped shape Obama’s world view needed to be off the table and not discussed.”

      The former Alaska governor added, “I disagreed then, I disagree now.” She took issue with the notion of a “one-sided ceasefire call”. …

      On Monday night, Palin said that Republicans need to fight “tooth and nail” in 2012. Asked about who she sees as a strong possible GOP vice presidential candidate, the former governor reiterated her view that Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) could be a strong pick.

      There are some very interesting topic related comments on The Blaze website encompassing Marco Rubio’s “Barack Obama is not a bad person” claim.

      Obama is not a very nice person. He can’t hide his shallow,thin skinned, pettiness,and hate for the USA.

      “That journey, from behind that bar to behind this podium, goes to the essence of the American miracle — that we’re exceptional not because we have more rich people here.”

      Nothing against money here, but I believe that part of the American story is that it is a nation that, within some reasonable parameters, allows us to become who we want to be.

      In America, it matters not if we want to build a business and amass a fortune, or become a doctor or lawyer, or a teacher. It doesn’t matter if we want to join the military. If we set our mind to it and want to do it badly enough, we can do it.

      What makes America great is there is no barrier if you are male or female, rich or poor. That, in a nutshell, is the difference why America was called the “land of opportunity” back in the day when most immigrants came from Europe where the social classes were based more who your parents were as opposed to what you did with your life.

      Rice hails Obama’s win as a ‘step forward’
      November 06, 2008

      WASHINGTON — An emotional Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice reveled Wednesday in Barack Obama’s election, calling it an “extraordinary step forward” for the nation. …

      She called the Democratic president-elect “inspirational” and said his victory was proof of America’s promise.

      “This was an exercise in American democracy of which Americans across the political spectrum are justifiably proud,” she said.

      “As an African American, I’m especially proud,” said Rice, her eyes glistening with emotion, “because this is a country that’s been through a long journey, in terms of overcoming wounds and making race” less of a factor. “That work is not done, but yesterday was obviously an extraordinary step forward.

      Let me add….and Biden is a bad VP, and Pelosi is a bad speaker, and so on and so on for all of Obama’s appointees.
