Florida Senator Marco Rubio is fed up with the Obama Administration and disgusted with Obama's rumored upcoming request to ask Congress for another debt ceiling increase. Obama is expected to ask for another $1.2 trillion, bumping the U.S. debt above $16 trillion. In a letter to the President, Rubio made it clear he will not vote for yet another debt ceiling increase unless there is a substantial plan in place from Obama to deal with our debt crisis and called Obama a failure.
When you served in the Senate in 2006, you called raising the debt limit "a sign of leadership failure." Using your own standard, this request will mark your sixth "sign of leadership failure" on the debt ceiling issue alone. Throughout our history, Americans have revered courageous leaders and celebrated them as profiles in courage. Unfortunately, the first three years of your presidency have been a profile in leadership failure. While you may choose to run your reelection campaign against a "Do-Nothing Congrsss," your insistence on doing nothing to meaningfully tackle our debt poses a direct threat to America's exceptional character and is leading us towards a diminished future.
Room for one more in the 2012 race for the White House?
