Rubio: Obama Most ‘Divisive’ Figure

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio jabbed President Obama Sunday, calling him the most “divisive” figure in recent American history. “The president and his party’s view of America’s government and our lives is a failed one,” said Rubio, widely considered a potential veep pick. “His ideas that sounded so good in the classrooms of Harvard and Yale haven’t really worked out well in the real world.” In his speech to 1,000 South Carolina Republicans, Rubio followed an attack line used frequently by presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney. South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint introduced Rubio as a “voice for freedom,” and Sen. Lindsey Graham called the Florida lawmaker “the future of the Republican Party.”
