Marco Rubio: "Marx would be pleased" with Obama

BLOOMINGTON, Mn - Outgoing House Speaker Marco Rubio just brought the Florida delegation to its feet, suggesting that Barack Obama is pursuing a form of "European style socialism.

"That's what his economic plan is about," Rubio said, suggesting that under Obama's economic plan, "50 percent of people in the country would pay taxes, 50 percent would pay no taxes. Marx would be pleased."

Rubio acknowledged he's impressed with Obama's backstory. "I love what Barack Obama's candidacy says about America," he said. "I just fear what his presidency would do to America."
