Marco Rubio in Epic Defense of Israel

Marco Rubio in Epic Defense of Israel

“How much better would the world be if the Middle East looked more like Israel?”

Senator Marco Rubio gave one of the best speeches of his career yesterday when he took to the floor in defense of Israel while calling out its critics, including President Obama.

Alyssa Canobbio of the Washington Free Beacon reported:

Rubio Delivers Blistering Speech on Obama’s Assault on Israel

It has taken two days for Obama to call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and congratulate him on his reelection. Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have taken part in very sensitive talks with Iran about its nuclear program.

Rubio began speaking on how Obama has always been among the first to call controversial leaders and congratulate them on winning their elections but has remained silent when it came to congratulating on the United States’ biggest ally in the Middle East. Rubio continued, making multiple points that the Obama administration has not stood with Israel.

Rubio cites a litany of examples of the unfair treatment of Israel by the Obama administration and its regional enemies such as Hamas and the Palestinian Authority. This video is 15 minutes long and well worth your time.

Jon Gabriel of Ricochet was clearly impressed by Rubio’s speech as well:

Rubio Speech Drops Hammer on Anti-Israel President

If Marco Rubio keeps talking like this, he’ll be the GOP front runner before we know it.

Two days after Benjamin Netanyahu’s big victory in Israel, one day after Obama’s peevish reaction, and on the same day the White House stated that they foresee “terrible days” for Israel ahead, Rubio spoke up. In 15 minutes, Florida’s junior senator vivisects Obama’s Israel policy before dispatching it once and for all into the depths of hell.

Rubio should be commended, it was a speech for the ages.

Rubio for Secretary of State.

WOW !!

Your post of the day is “Is Obama getting ready to throw Israel under a UN bus?”

And I ask: Are we finally getting ready to demand Obama’s impeachment?

A cracking good speech.

Watch him follow-up on the weekend shows, maybe with some support from other good folks.

It’s going to be great watching Rubio, Walker, Cruz, Rand, et al, battle it out.

    Only second to watching the Democrat Primaries when Hillary takes on her adversaries. They’ve all majored in slinging crap and as elitists who see themselves standing as the last coming, they do it soap opera style. We should all buy Popcorn Futures.

The Democrats in Congress are backing this, too. Everyone is looking at Obama like they used to look at Nixon, shortly before he resigned. Unfortunately for us all, there is no Al Haig, this time around.

I wasn’t particularly impressed with this speech. He comes off to me as too green — rushing his words and never knowing quite where to put his emphasis. The content was fine. We just don’t have a rhetorical lion on our side, or I haven’t seen one emerge yet.

Obama walks like a duck and quacks like a duck … I’m going to say he’s a duck … a duck = jew hater


Another point: he lied through his teeth about immigration. How can you ever believe him again? Or believe that he believes what he’s saying?

Good to set the record straight. Progressives/Democrats need to be reminded that peaceful coexistence is not the endgame for the Arabs. their endgame is the destruction of Israel and the killing of all Jews worldwide.

Rubio has made his missteps but I believe he has shown he hasn’t lost his way. The speech from the floor demonstrates the breadth of his understanding of the issues we as a nation have suffered with Obama. Yet I don’t see him as having the resources to lead a nation for lack of his experience in dealing with issues which demand more experience in the areas he has only “test driven” the solutions. But I can see him as VP attached as a key liaison to the State Dept. and working with Scott Walker, filling the chair in the Senate and capable of working with his prior peers and having a deciding vote when it is favorable to support our President and not just a figure head to keep the media side tracked as a source of amusement.

Saudi Arabia is very much interested in NOT looking more like Israel – or Sweden.

It’d be nice to see Rubio give an epic defense of his allowing himself to be led around by the nose by Charles Schumer.
