Lets see, one in four of our kids now live in poverty. What’s Obama doing about that?
Before an audience of Hispanic Republicans gathered in Houston, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio offered a preview of his remarks at the Republican National Convention, labeling President Barack Obama“a painful disaster for millions of Americans” and challenger Mitt Romney as both a successful businessman and “a successful person.”
In Florida the homeless people were cataloged by a recent 60 Minutes story. It’s really sad, how the middle class has been gutted by this President. On purpose, I might add, nothing this disastrous can be an accident.
“Instead of getting spending under control, he helped pass $800 billion on his so-called stimulus bill, much of it wasted on pork-barrel spending,” he said, speaking to the Texas Hispanic Leadership Forum at Houston’s Hotel Omni.
“He passed Obamacare, that absolutely hurt small businesses with high taxes and more regulations. He got Congress to pass and federal bureaucracies to develop more rules that he said would keep investors and businesses in line. And none of it worked.”
Obama, he said,
“doesn’t believe in the American free enterprise system, because he doesn’t understand the principles that truly make us great.”
Rubio told his Houston audience that his best friend growing up was his late grandfather, who was born in Cuba and disabled by polio at an early age.
“He told me that because I was an American son, there was nothing that I could not do and there was no limit to how far I could go,”
Rubio said, adding that he hoped his grandfather would be watching when he introduced “the next president of the United States” in two weeks. Rubio is to introduce Mitt at the RNC Convention.
Having never had a job, might just contribute to Obama’s view. Apparently the atmosphere in the choom wagon was quite cloudy. Remember the commercials, this is your brain on ……. I wonder what deep pot inhalations does for your brain. I bet it isn’t good.
