Debate: Cruz vs. Rubio

Debate

At the GOP debate, Cruz and Rubio spar over immigration, with Rubio saying his view on immigration was the same as Cruz’s. Cruz responds:

I led the fight against his legalization and amnesty like suggesting the fireman and the arsonist have the same record because they were both at the scene of the fire…I have never supported legalization, and I do not intend to support legalization.

On national security, Cruz:

One of the problems with Marco’s foreign policy is he has far too often supported Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama undermining governments in the Middle East that have helped radical Islamic terrorists,” Mr. Cruz said. “We need to focus on killing the bad guys, not getting stuck in Middle Eastern civil wars that don’t keep America safe.

Rubio responds that while President Obama and Hillary Clinton wanted to “lead from behind,” Cruz was suggesting “not to lead at all.”

Third Republican presidential debate

Debate

At the third Republican presidential debate in Boulder, CO, hosted by CNBC, Rubio responds to a question about criticism from the SunSentinel newspaper for missing many Senate votes while on the campaign trail.

I read that article today with amusement… This is another example of the double standard that exists in this country between the mainstream media and conservatives.

Jeb Bush jumps in, comparing Rubio’s lack of voting in the Senate to a French workweek, adding ‘You should be showing up for work… or just resign’. Rubio counters:

You said that you’re modelling your campaign after John McCain… I don’t ever remember you complaining about John McCain’s vote record… The only reason why you’re doing it now is because we’re running for the same position and someone has convinced you that attacking me is going to help you.
