Rubio Defends Repeated Obama Attacks: ‘I Would Pay Them to Keep Running That Clip’

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is standing by his claims that President Barack Obama “knows exactly what he’s doing.”

Rubio reiterated that statement many times during the debate on Saturday night.

“Well, actually, I would pay them to keep running that clip because that’s what I believe passionately. It’s one of the reasons why I’m not running for reelection to the Senate and I’m running for president,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“ObamaCare was not an accident. Dodd-Frank was not an accident. The deal with Iran was not an accident,” he continued.

“As far as that message, I hope they keep running it and I’m going to keep saying because it’s true. Barack Obama — yes, has he hired incompetent people to implement laws and run agencies? Absolutely,” he said.

“But when it comes to the — what he’s trying to do to America, it’s part of a plan. He has said he wanted to change the country; he’s doing it in a way that is robbing us of everything that makes us special.

“I’m going to keep saying that because that not only is it the truth,” he said.

“The reason why I’m running is if we elect someone like that for the next four years, I think it may be too late for American to turn around,” he said.
