Rubio Argues the Case for Mitt Romney
"When this president ran for office in 2008, he said he was going to be different. He was going to be a post-partisan uniter to bring Americans together. And three and half years later, the president has become just like anybody else in Washington, D.C.," Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Senator Marco Rubio joined "Fox News Sunday" to make the case for Mitt Romney for president, and discuss his own take on current events.
The president kicked off his campaign for re-election on Saturday, and continued with the theme that electing Mitt Romney would result in tax cuts that benefit the wealthy and cuts to programs that will harm the poor and middle class.
Rubio responded that the president won in the first place because he said he knew how to fix the economy.
"That's the standard he asked us to judge him by," Rubio said, adding that the president "divides Americans," because he "can't run on his record."
Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee, has blamed the president's economic policies for producing a recovery that he argues is weaker than it should be. The former governor has said the economy should be producing many more jobs than it is and that the goal should be getting the unemployment rate down to 4%.
Rubio, asked whether these goals are unrealistic, said the American people want someone with "high expectations."
The consensus seems to be that Rubio's name is at the top of the Romney campaign's list for potential vice presidential candidates.
And while Rubio said he wanted to "respect the process" and not discuss the possibility, he did list the number of ways his experience has prepared him for the office he currently holds as US senator.
