Marco Rubio: Time for 'A New American Century'

By    |   Friday, 10 Apr 2015 08:13 PM

Sen. Marco Rubio, who is expected to announce his presidential candidacy on Monday, has released a video highlighting some of his strongest speeches defining a conservative vision for the United States.

"This is about whether we are going to be the first generation of Americans to leave our children worse off than ourselves or the next generation that will allow them to inherit what they deserve, inherit what we inherited, give to them what every generation before us has given to the next: the single greatest nation in all of human history," Rubio says in the video, which lasts five and a half minutes.

Story continues below video.


Rubio described the video as "a quick preview of what I'll be saying on Monday during my announcement."

In the video, the freshman Republican describes his family's departure from Cuba and its migration to Florida, his plans for a more robust U.S. foreign policy to tackle the threats posed by jihadists, and his belief that the massive expansion of government spending and regulation during the Obama administration is crippling initiative and destroying economic opportunity.

Rubio says that "everything I will ever accomplish I owe to God, to my parents' sacrifices, and to the United States of America."

The video is entitled "A New American Century," which provides "a subtle hint at how Rubio plans to cast himself as a generational change agent not only for his party but for the country," The Washington Post observed.

Aides to Rubio say the fact that Hillary Clinton will announce her candidacy on Sunday will enable him to draw generational contrasts with the former secretary of state, who will be 69 years old on Inauguration Day 2017. (Rubio will be 45.)

The video is a blistering indictment of the Obama administration's domestic policies, ranging from Obamacare to a panoply of new federal regulations.

Domestically, Rubio says, "we have a government that increasingly controls every aspect of our lives, including even the Internet."

Rubio also skewers the "Obama/Clinton foreign policy."

"The world is a safer and better place when America is the strongest country in the world," he says. But the current administration, according to Rubio, has implemented a foreign policy of bullying allies and appeasing enemies – one "that treats the ayatollah in Iran with more respect than the prime minister of Israel."
