What Sen. Rubio Will Say About The President’s Flawed Policies Tonight

The Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes writes about Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who will deliver the GOP’s response to President Obama’s State of the Union address tonight. Here’s what to expect from Rubio tonight:

“The way I envisioned it is, I kind of went back to the people that I know [back] home,” Rubio explains, “whether it’s my friends from high school, or parents that I know from my kids’ school or kids’ teams, and if I had an opportunity to sit in front of them and if they gave me fifteen minutes to explain to them why it was that what the president wants to do is not a good idea and why what we want to do is a better idea – what would I say to them? And that’s how I’ve approached the speech – is to explain why it is that limited government, free enterprise is the best way to give people the opportunity to achieve a middle class lifestyle or more and leave their kids better off than themselves.”
