Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio vowed on Sunday to keep repeating rehearsed lines after he was criticized for robotically attacking President Barack Obama.
During Saturday night’s Republican Presidential Debate on ABC, Gov. Chris Christie had accused Rubio of repeatedly saying that Obama “knows exactly what he’s doing,”
“There it is,” Christie interrupted at one point. “There it is — the memorized 25-second speech. There it is, everybody.”
On Sunday, Rubio told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos that he would continue using the rehearsed lines.
“I would pay them to keep running that clip,” Rubio insisted. “Because that’s what I believe passionately. It’s one of the reasons that I’m not running for re-election in the Senate. I’m running for president.”
“But you’re getting pounded for repeating that speech,” Stephanopoulos pointed out.
“I hope they keep running it,” Rubio replied. “And I’m going to keep saying it because it’s true.”
“It’s what I believe and it’s what I’m going to continue to say,” the candidate added. “Because it’s one of the main reasons why I am running.”
this has got to be the second stupidest thing a politician has said in forever, he gets called out first of all he was lying but called out for repeating it then goes seconds later to doing exactly what he was accused of and after Christie points it out he continues. his saying he would pay them to keep running it was a very anemic attempt to play it down but by engaging so poorly he just amplified it.
now ignoring Pres.'s unprecedented achievements and saying he doesn't know what he's doing is utterly ignorant but to vow to continue saying it is insane Pres. is not running ever again so what purpose does attacking and blaming him for what his party did serve or help his campaign?????????????????????????????????????????????? now let me throw another log on Cruz's fire
i said second stupidest because from the beginning there has always been one who out stupids that latest entry. also the robotic thing suggest he can be programmed just what the party is looking for according to Norquist; but he has been known to go rogue
