Rubio warns of 'American socialism'

When former House Speaker Marco Rubio announced the other night on Univision-Channel 23 that he is, indeed, running for the U.S. Senate, he said, "I'm very much interested in what is happening with the taxes and the economy in this country, and the kind of American Socialism that they want to establish in the United States."

Hispanic politicians frequently deliver that kind of politically charged message to Cuban- American audiences but not to English-speaking ones. Does Rubio really believe President Barack Obama is trying to establish socialism in this country, or is he merely trying to fan flames in the exile community?
