Tueday Marco Rubio appeared on the Rush Limbaugh to garner support from Conservatives and attempt to divert the focus away from the “amnesty” discussions.

“Things are often demagogued and described in a way that are not accurate,” Rubio said on the syndicated radio program. “I think the more people are aware about what we’re for and what we’re not for, the more empowered we are … to make a better argument for our position versus theirs.”

“I just want to remind everybody Obama’s not going to be president forever,’’ Rubio told

“As long as these next four years may seem, he won’t be president forever. We’ll have another president one day and we have to write laws with that in mind as well.’’

Rubio discusses the challenge of convincing Americans that less government, as the Republican Party wants, is better than more government, which Democrats continue to push, is a tough challenge.

“It’s easier to sell cotton candy than it is to sell broccoli to somebody, but the broccoli is better for you. And it’s the same thing with limited government,’’ Rubio told Limbaugh.

“Yeah, it’s a lot easier for a politician to sell people on how a big government program is going to make their life better. But I think ours, once we sell it, is more enduring, more permanent and better for the country.’’
