Sen. Rubio Calls Obama Most ‘Divisive Figure’ In U.S. Politics

Speaking at a Republican party event in South Carolina over the weekend, Florida Senator Marco Rubio called President Obama a divisive leader, and accused the Commander-in-Chief of being a “very different person” now than he was in 2008. Rubio told the crowd that he has “not seen such a divisive figure in modern American history than we have over the last three and one-half years.”

The Democratic National Committee immediately issued a response, turning the tables of divisiveness on Rubio’s own party.

Marco Rubio’s attacks on the President are as dishonest as they are desperate. No one has tried harder to reach across the aisle on everything from jobs and trade to a plan to get our fiscal house in order than has President Obama and every step of the way Republican leaders have either buckled to the far right wing of their party or decided to put politics ahead of moving our country forward… Republicans attacking the President for being divisive are the ultimate case of the pot calling the kettle black.
