During an interview on FOX News Sunday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) pronounced Vice President Joe Biden “wrong on everything” about foreign policy.
“Joe Biden’s record on foreign policy is one of being wrong on everything that he’s ever advised or everything he’s ever asked for — from dividing Iraq, to admittedly telling the president not to go in and do this operation,” Rubio observed when asked about Biden touting the bin Laden raid in an attack on Mitt Romney.
“Vice President Biden has the tendency to say some interesting things to say the least,” he told Fox News’ Chris Wallace.
Rubio has repeatedly said he believes in keeping “foreign policy nonpartisan as much as possible,” saying it “weakens” the country’s hand to show divisions when dealing with foreign adversaries.
“I always try to keep foreign policy as nonpartisan as possible,” Rubio said in a Fox News interview earlier this week.
Biden wasn’t the only administration official on his radar during the interview.
“When this president ran for office in 2008, he said he was going to be different. He was going to be a post-partisan uniter to bring Americans together,” Rubio contended. “And in his obsessive effort to win his reelection, he has lost himself and he has lost what makes him different. And this issue of how they’ve used the bin Laden raid is one example about how his administration has become just like everybody else.”
Rubio, a conservative Cuban-American, said he believes Romney could carry Hispanics in Florida. “He’s not going to lose Hispanics 2 to 1 in Florida. In fact, I think he has the opportunity to win Hispanics in Florida,” Rubio said.
