There has been so much internet talk about the fact that at last Saturday’s GOP debate in New Hampshire Sen. Marco Rubio repeated himself four times, but there hasn’t been enough talk about what he actually said. Here is what he said:

But I would add this. Let’s dispel with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is trying to change this country. He wants America to become more like the rest of the world. We don’t want to be like the rest of the world, we want to be the United States of America. And when I’m elected president, this will become once again, the single greatest nation in the history of the world, not the disaster Barack Obama has imposed upon us. …We have to understand what we’re going through here. We are not facing a president that doesn’t know what he’s doing. He knows what he is doing. That’s why he’s done the things he’s done. That’s why we have a president that passed Obamacare and the stimulus. All this damage that he’s done to America is deliberate. This is a president that’s trying to redefine this country.

He said that President Obama is trying to make us too much like other countries with health care for all and government stimulating the economy. Obama also wants free community college, more renewable energy, less income inequality, fewer police shooting black youths, and more humanitarian immigration policies. Why does Rubio say we should oppose these things? Not because they are necessarily bad but because they would make us more like the rest of the world and less American. Obama is trying to make us one of those countries that has free health care, better education, less economic inequality, and lives up to its creed or justice and liberty for all. Obama is trying to redefine this country. That bastard.

Rubio wants us to remain low on the list of developed countries on how well we do those things because that is who we are. He has no suggestions of how we could get better but urges us to accept our poor performances as part of our identity.

I actually see what he said as a testimonial to Obama and the reason one should vote for the eventual Democratic candidate rather than whoever the GOP nominates: the blowhard, Eddie Munster, the boy in the bubble, or the fat cats’ nominee.
