Rubio, Mack Slam Obama’s “Failed” Foreign Policy

by Javier Manjarres

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio took his opportunity in the post debate “spin room” to issue a much stronger criticism of President Obama’s foreign policy than Governor Mitt Romney did during the actual debate that transpired in Boca Raton, Florida.

When Rubio was asked if Romney would win Florida in next month’s general election, Rubio measured his words and indicated that he felt “very optimistic about the direction about the direction of the campaign here in Florida.”

Rubio added that the President looked “small and petty” for “pivoting” on the issue of foreign policy and launching into personal attacks against Governor Romney-

He (Romney) talked about big issues in a big way, he talked about big challenges with big ideas, and the President responded to the same questions with what appeared as prepared counter punches, designed to deliver personal blows more than they were to seriously discuss serious public policy.- Senator Marco Rubio

Rubio’s potential senatorial colleague Congressman Connie Mack, running for the U.S. Senate against Democrat Bill Nelson, also railed against Obama’s foreign policy and is stepping up his criticism of the administration’s actions regarding the consulate attack in Benghazi-

The President now has had two opportunities to tell the American people what happened in Benghazi, instead he continues to try to change the story, change the subject and not talk about it. He’s the Commander-in-Chief, he’s the President of the United States, we’ve seen him do this with Fast and Furious, we’ve seen him do this over and over again with this administration not willing to look the American people in the eye and tell them the truth about what is happening. – Congressman Connie Mack

Mack also added that he would “absolutely” support U.S. Military action against Iran or any other country were they to attack Israel.

    Ah jeeze…more reckless campaign rhetoric. I wouldn’t put such an inane comment past Mr. Mack, but Senator Rubio would be well advised to tone down his preemptive criticism of our very complicated foreign policy until this freshman senator gets fully briefed on all the ramifications. This party line mouthing off is just that…and very unbecoming Marco! Wise up!

      Do you even know what “preemptive” means?

      We’ve had 4 years to observe this unAmerican POTUS’ “complicated” policy and it boils down to
      1) Bow
      2) Apologize
      3) Repeat

      The CBS release of the State Dept memos now confirm that your Messiah outright lied to you about his knowledge of Benghazi.

      Hey, Craig, we still have a POTUS that, after 4 yrs., has no clue. To make matters worse, he lies to cover up his Middle East policy failures. Marco would demolish Obama in any debate on any topic.
      There’s nothing too complicated about a consulate that’s been attacked before, begging for more security and being rejected. The same goes for a Pres. and cabinet watching live feed video of a 6 hr. attack and playing pocket pool while Americans were killed by Al Qaeda.

    We can’t afford 4 more years of a President that has been lying since he took office. He ran on the slogan “Change and transparency”, surely he does everything behind doors, and the only change has been to make matters much worse. He claims not to know anything aboutr “Fast and Furious”, and here again about Benghazi. Whose running the White House???? e schmitt

    Reckless rhetoric? Up yours troll. OBAMUNIST LIES…& AMERICANS
    ALWAYS DIE. Look at Libya…look at Fast & Furious….one scandal
    after another where Americans died. And Obamunist calls it all
    just “a bump in the road”. You have to truly wonder what kind of
    a-hole actually would vote for this POS.

    The White House, State Department, Pentagon, and the CIA all have blood on there hands. This well planned attack on 9/11 in Benghazi was due to failure of this administration to protect Americans. As has been reported, arms have been purchased for these jihadists to go into Syria to oust Assad. These same weapons were used in Libya against our amassador, who was brutally raped because he was gay.
