RU­BIO’S MO­MENT

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“We have made no progress on the is­sues of our time be­cause, frankly, we have too many peo­ple, in both par­ties, who have de­cided that the next elec­tion is more im­por­tant than the next gen­er­a­tion. And our lack of progress on these is­sues has led to some­thing even more trou­bling — a grow­ing fear that maybe these prob­lems are too big for us to solve. Too big for even Amer­ica.

“Well, there is no rea­son to be afraid. Our story, the story of Amer­ica, it is not the story of a nation that never faced prob­lems. It is the story of a nation that faced its chal­lenges and solved them. Our story, the story of the Amer­i­can peo­ple, is not the story of a peo­ple who al­ways got it right. It is the story of a peo­ple who, in the end, got it right.”

— Sen. Marco Ru­bio, Florida Repub­li­can, in his “maiden speech” be­fore the Se­nate on June 14.
