Marco Rubio continues robotic repetition VIDEO

By far the most discussed moment of last Saturday’s GOP debate was Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) repeating the same canned line over and over again, even after his GOP presidential rival, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, criticized him for it. The gaffe may have cost Rubio some votes as he finished fifth, behind Donald Trump, John Kasich, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz.

On the eve of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, Rubio appeared to make the same mistake, this time with a different line in his stump speech. Check out the first video below.

The Florida Senator was speaking to a crowd in Nashua, lamenting the decline in American family values.

Then he lamented the decline in American values again.

This is what he said verbatim, as his wife and four children looked on:

“We are taking our message to families that are struggling to raise their children in the 21st century because, as you saw, Jeanette and I are raising our four children in the 21st century, and we know how hard it’s become to instill our values in our kids instead of the values they try to ram down our throats.

“In the 21st century, it’s becoming harder than ever to instill in your children the values they teach in our homes and in our church instead of the values that they try to ram down our throats in the movies, in music, in popular culture.”

Rubio appeared to notice his own echo: As he repeated the word “throats,” he caught himself, but proceeded to the end of his sentence nonetheless.
