Marco Rubio calls Obama most 'divisive figure' in US politics

By NBC's Andrew Rafferty

COLUMBIA, SC -- Florida Sen. Marco Rubio on Saturday slammed President Barack Obama for being the most divisive figure in American politics.

"The man who today occupies the White House and is running for president is a very different person," Rubio said at a high-profile GOP fundraiser, where he claimed Obama has abandoned the ideals he ran on in 2008. "We have not seen such a divisive figure in modern American history than we have over the last three and one-half years."

Rubio delivered the dig in front of nearly 1,000 South Carolina Republicans at the Silver Elephant Dinner, one of the state's biggest gatherings of GOPers and whose keynote speaker in 2011 was former presidential candidate Rick Santorum. The junior senator from the Sunshine State drew praise from the state's most influential conservatives who took the stage before him, including Sens. Lindsey Graham and Jim DeMint and Gov. Nikki Haley.

The Big Lie technique again. Go after the other side on YOUR side's biggest weaknesses.

Only about a month ago, Alan West claimed "I believe there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party." Sharon Angell and other Republicans advised any Republicans who were unhappy with results at the ballot box in 2010 to use their "Second Amendment remedies."

Link me to a reliable source showing something that Obama said that was anywhere near as inflammatory and dishonest as either of those comments, Liar, Liar Rubio, and maybe someone will give you a fire extinguisher for those pants of yours that are on fire.

2. Yeah, like that Dr. Martin Luther King used to be.
Hmm, I wonder what they have in common. ;-)
