Marco Rubio Says Crist Independent Run a Matter of "Political Convenience"; Won't Call Obama a "Socialist" - Video 4/29/10
Here is video of GOP U.S. Senate Candidate in Florida - Marco Rubio - saying Gov. Charlie Crist's decision to run as an Independent this Fall is a decision of "political convenience." He was also asked if Barack Obama is a "socialist." Rubio would not use that word directly, but he did say Obama "does not believe fully in the Free Enterprise system."
You can quibble over the definition of "socialist," but clearly Barack Obama has a socialist philosophy. I am convinced that if he thought he could do it, he would move America to full-blown socialism, where the government controls the means of production throughout the country. But he is taking every incremental step he can to move America in that direction. Rubio is right that Obama and his administration clearly do not "believe fully" in the Free Enterprise system. In fact, that is a major understatement of the situation!
