Marco Rubio: Rand Paul ‘Chief Cheerleader’ of Obama Foreign Policy

Sen. Marco Rubio responded to criticism from fellow Republican and potential 2016 presidential rival Sen. Rand Paul over his position on Cuba, insisting today that he would oppose the “Obama-Paul foreign policy,” and referring to the Kentucky senator as “chief cheerleader” of the president’s overseas agenda.

“Rand, if he wants to become the chief cheerleader of Obama’s foreign policy, he certainly has a right to do that,” Rubio, R-Fla., told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on “This Week.” “I’m going to continue to oppose the Obama-Paul foreign policy on Cuba because I know it won’t lead to freedom and liberty for the Cuban people, which is my sole interest here.”

Earlier this week, Paul tweeted on Rubio’s position on engagement with Cuba that he “is acting like an isolationist who wants to retreat to our borders and perhaps build a moat. I reject this isolationism.”

Following Rubio’s appearance on “This Week,” Doug Stafford, senior advisor to Paul, in a statement to ABC News, said that “With all due respect, Senator Marco Rubio was captain of the GOP cheerleading team for Obama’s arming of Syrian rebels, bombing Libya resulting in a jihadist wonderland, and illegally giving foreign aid to Egypt’s military government. The Rubio-Obama foreign policy has made the Middle East and North Africa less safe.”

President Obama announced in an historic but controversial decision that the U.S. would move to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba and open an embassy in Havana, the country’s capital. Rubio, who is of Cuban heritage, criticized the president’s decision this morning.
