Marco Rubio bashes Hillary Clinton, talks 2016 election and global warming

Marco Rubio kicked off a week of massive public relations, beginning by appearing on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” to discuss Benghazi, the 2016 presidential race and climate change. Touring other shows, including Sean Hannity, Rubio repeated the talking points and dodged discussing illegal immigration reform, a sore topic for conservatives.

Marco Rubio donkey narrow“I’m sure she’s going to go out bragging about her time in the State Department. She’s also going to have to be held accountable for its failures, whether it’s the failed reset with Russia or the failure in Benghazi that actually cost lives,” Rubio said of Clinton on Benghazi and the 2016 campaign trail.

He gave Clinton an “F” for her tenure in the State Department as House Republicans are still investigating new information from the Obama administration’s response to the September 2012 Benghazi attacks, which Clinton has said were the “biggest regret” of her tenure.

“If you look at the diplomacy that was pursued in her time in the State Department, it has failed everywhere in the world,” Rubio said. “If she is going to run on her record as secretary of state, she’s also going to have to answer for its massive failures.”

Nearly repeating word-for-word the response on a likely 2016 Presidential run, Rubio stated: “I believe that if you want to be president of the United States, you run for president,” he said. “You don’t run for president with some eject button in the cockpit that allows you to go on an exit ramp if it doesn’t work out.”

One interview or another, the comments were nearly identical.

“I think that’s true for multiple other people that would want to run,” Rubio said. “I mean, I’ll be 43 this month, but the other thing that perhaps people don’t realize — I’ve served now in public office for the better part of 14 years. Most importantly, I think a president has to have a clear vision of where the country needs to go and clear ideas about how to get it there, and I think we’re very blessed in our party to have a number of people that fit that criteria.”

Rubio dodged hard hitting immigration questions, but public denounced global warming and climate change alarmists.

“I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientists are portraying it,” he said. “And I do not believe that the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it, except it will destroy our economy.”
