Florida Senator Marco Rubio was many Republicans’ top choice to become Mitt Romney’s running mate. Rubio showed Thursday night that he could add a lot of the presidential ticket. Dinging President Obama while heaping praise on the GOP nominee, Rubio did a sterling job leading into the introduction of Mitt Romney.

“Our problem with President Obama isn’t that he’s a bad person. By all accounts, he too is a good husband, and a good father — and thanks to lots of practice, a pretty good golfer.

Our problem is he’s a bad president.

The new slogan for the president’s campaign is “Forward.”

A government that spends $1 trillion more than it takes in.

An $800 billion stimulus that created more debt than jobs.

A government intervention into health care paid for with higher taxes and cuts to Medicare.

Scores of new rules and regulations.

These ideas don’t move us “Forward,” they take us “Backwards.”

These are tired and old big government ideas. Ideas that people come to America to get away from.  Ideas that threaten to make America more like the rest of the world, instead of helping the world become more like America.

Under Barack Obama, the only “Change” is that “Hope” has been hard to find.”
