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.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at the RNC, Tells Barack Obama Its Time to Stop Blaming GWB for You Failed Economic Policies

Jeb Bush tells Obama to own up to his failed policies and take responsibility for his actions.

During Jeb Bush’s speech tonight at the Republican National Convention, Jeb paused a moment to make a personal comment … Jeb Bush scolded Barack Obama and told him to get over it and take some responsibility for his failed economic policies. He said, “… and my brother [GWB], well I love my bother. He is a man of integiry, courage and honor. And during incredibly challenging times, he kept us safe. So Mr. President it is time to stop blaming your predecessor for your failed economic policies. You were dealt a tough hand, but your policies have not worked. In the 4th year of your presidency, a real leader would accept responsibility for his actions and you have not done that.”

Jeb Bush then went on to talk about education in America and the quality of opportunity does not exist for all children.

Hillary Clinton Staying as Far Away from Charlotte, Obama & the DNC Convention as Physically Possible … Can You Blame Her?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is sitting out the Democrat National Convention in Charlotte, NC next week. Instead, she will be half way around the world. Can any one blame her? Probably the most popular Democrat is staying as far away from Obama and the DNC convention probably for two reasons. One, to keep the stink from the convention from getting on her if she wants to run for office in 2016 and two, she would over shadow Obama causing many to think … Why not Hillary? As it is, former President Bill Clinton is supposed to provide the keynote speech. Rather bizarre, seeing that an up and comer and political superstar usually fills the role. However, when the Democrats are void of any and all you have is reminding Americans of days gone by rather than present day Obamaland, what else would one expect?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as a sitting administration official, does not have any role at the Democratic National Convention next week in Charlotte. But she seems to gone out of her way to avoid the festivities, as she is traveling this week and next to the Cook Islands, Indonesia, China, Timor-Leste, Brunei, and Russia.

“The Cook Islands this year are the hosts of one of the most important institutions of the Pacific called the Pacific Island Forum,” a senior State Department official said Thursday. “It’s a group that meets yearly with a number of working groups. It’s been in existence almost half a century; it’s very significant.”

No one with any political aspirations or and Democrat who wanted to win their political race in 2012 would want to come near this convention.
