During his campaign announcement speech, Sen. Marco Rubio remarked that Americans cannot look to “leaders and ideas of the past” to “author the greatest chapter yet” in American history. The comment takes aim at potential primary and general election challengers Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton.
RUBIO: Now, just yesterday, a leader from yesterday began a campaign for president by promising to take us back to yesterday.
Yesterday is over, and we are never going back. We Americans are proud of our history, but our country has always been about the future. Before us now is the opportunity to author the greatest chapter yet in the amazing story of America. But we can’t do that by going back to the leaders and ideas of the past. We must change the decisions we are making by changing the people who are making them.
