ELDER PATRIOT – Readers of this column know I’m not a Marco Rubio fan but I must give credit where it’s due.
Rubio has come under intense fire for his repeated insistence on sticking to his assertion that, “The reason why these things are in trouble is because Barack Obama is the first president, at least in my lifetime, that wants to change the country.”
His decision to double down and keep repeating it should be reason to exalt Boy Marco. If only he weren’t so awful on so many other issues.
The president stated these intentions himself even before the 2008 election, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
The fact is that it’s the truth, and it means Chris Christie and those agreeing with him should be the ones carrying the burden of explaining the president’s incompetence if they don’t consider his actions to be deliberate.
That would, of course, necessitate a need to defend themselves for standing idly by during Obama’s reign of divisiveness, corporate cronyism, and redistributionist governance. Many, like Christie even aided Obama in his effort. Who can forget Governor Christie hugging the president during a visit following Hurricane Sandy?
At the time Christie intended this optic to elevate Obama as a bi-partisan president and undermine the campaign of Mitt Romney in order to clear the decks of an incumbent Republican for himself this election cycle. That’s the way Christie plays the game and that’s why he should come under greater scrutiny for what he says now.
Unfortunately, Marco Rubio is right in his assessment that Barack Obama is not incompetent. I say unfortunately because that leaves us with only one conclusion to draw about the establishment Republicans, they were complicit in helping him succeed.
The more significant question that should be asked of Boy Marco is why did he remain silent while voting to support and fund so much of Obama’s agenda during the past five years in the Senate.
The question that should be asked of all of them is why they think the globalist agenda that they have advanced and are now trying to distance themselves from would benefit Republican voters.
