Marco Rubio Schools Jeb Bush on Foreign Policy

The student has now become the teacher.

Sen. Marco Rubio, once viewed as a protege of presidential competitor Jeb Bush, schooled the former Florida governor Wednesday evening in the first national security address of his national campaign.

As compared to Jeb Bush, who fumbled and stumbled through his first major national security address, Marco Rubio delivered a master class on foreign policy that spoke to the soul of the right’s hawkish neoconservatives.

In New York City, before the Council of Foreign Relations and their foreign policy experts, Rubio showed himself to be a peer.

In an hour before the Council, he spoke about everything from Filipino typhoon survivors to keeping South China Sea transit ways accessible—and at one point corrected longtime broadcaster and forum moderator Charlie Rose about the extent to which there are Iranian fighters in Iraq.

And he got into the details: he condemned Iranian efforts to develop a long-range ballistic missile capability, a specific gripe of hawkish Iranian experts that doesn’t get much attention. He said the conditions don’t exist for a two-state solution; that the VA system needs to be reformed; that he’s open to Ukraine joining NATO.

    Whether they’re eligible or not doesn’t matter to me. Even though they are good men, I’m not voting for either. Scott Walker is my man. He won the governorship in a blue state, defeated the public unions, beat them a second time in a phony recall election, destroyed the Democrat machine, made the Democratic legislators run and hide in a neighboring state, and show and expose their unpatriotic and cowardly stance. Walker stood up for freedom, saved the state of Wisconsin from bankruptcy, saved it from George Soros’s Far Left Liberal machine and agenda, and he (Walker) is a true American leader. I stress the word, “American.” There is nothing phony or fraudulent about him.

    Talk about the blind leading the blind, (or should that be the fool leading the bigger fool?)

  • rhondareichel says:

    all NEOCON talking points Rubio is parroting……I’m SICK of that mess. He’s G.W. Bush Jr. I don’t want anymore of the interventionism that brought us to this point…..and Israel can fend for themselves. No entangling alliances was wise advice from George Washington….who’s boots Rubio is not fit to shine.

    Rubio is finding his redemption for his miscalculation on the amnesty issue, with him and Cruz running for president, you can be sure the GOP good old boys will align with the left to bring them down, as they both are grooming the Latino vote.
    In watching them in Latino territory, they are doing a hell of a good job.

    Marco Rubio is NOT Constitutionally eligible to be president, his parents were Cuban refugees who did not (if the did) become American citizens via the immigration law until Marco was around four years old, Marco is an American citizen by birth, an anchor baby, but he is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.
    More-so than Obama (whose circumstances are different that he is not a natural born citizen), Cruz, Santorum possibly Bush & Romney are not Constitutionally eligible, their ancestry must be investigated.

    Besides this, Rubio is a puppet for the Council of Foreign Relations.

      Keep beating that drum, his mother is and was a citizen of the USA , when he was born, just keep doing your troll work on behalf of the communist/ democrats, you found your niche’.

      1. David in MA says:

        Someday the idiots like you will remember you heard it on a post. Rubio is not Constitutionally qualified to become president.
        Neither is Obama, the reasons are so many to list here, (one is, his mother was not of the age where she could convey American citizenship), if you and other mesmerized fools have been following the issue of Obama you would understand why he is an illegal president. Congress is 100% at fault that Obama sits in the White House and people like you, with your shallow minds approve, be assured, you will pay the price for your misplaced allegiance.

        1. ravenwings says:

          You are wrong. And nobody dislikes Obama any more than I do. But facts are facts. Obama’s mother was born in Kansas a US citizen. No matter where Obama was born the fact his mother was a US citizen makes him so also. Start reading more of our Constitution and real unadulterated US history.

          1. David in MA says:

            you do not know what your talking about.

        2. groversyck says:

          David, you are an ignorant fool.
          It is people like you that mostly watch Fox News (NOT) that are destroying our nation.

          1. David in MA says:

            grover syck, or is that grover sick?
            Thank you for your intellectual democrat socialist observation, I sleep well nights because I know the truth, not the BS you and your comrades try to put out to Patriotic Americans with the hope to change them into mindless liberal slaves to a society which always fails. Misplaces emotional self gratification is not a good thing, enjoy your socialist dream for it will end in disaster, again.
            OH! BTW: If we are ever in a FEMA Camp together don’t expect any assistance from me, none!

        His mother is not running…he is…and he’s not NATURAL BORN

        1. ijohnc1 says:

          You and Davy keep up the good work for the secular progressives, you two found your niche in life, the liberals got to love you, just hope they pay you enough.

        2. David in MA says:

          Rubio’s parents were NOT U.S. Citizens when he was born, you are correct, he is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN, and I hope it gets worked out before the elections or America gets another illegal president. ijohnc1 is a blow hard know nothing!

    2. rhondareichel says:

      CFR is evil…world govt. is their goal.
      If you love our sovereignty you will never vote for Rubio or any other of the CFR darlings.

    3. ravenwings says:

      You need to go back and read the constitution. ..

      1. David in MA says:

        and you need a brain that is not liberal tainted.
