Rubio: Romney knows what makes America great

By AP Staff

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida says Mitt Romney knows what makes America exceptional.

Rubio told the GOP convention Thursday night that Romney understands prosperity doesn't happen because the government spends more money, that it happens because people use their own money to open businesses.

Rubio says the problem with President Barack Obama isn't that he's a bad person - it's that he's a bad president who favors tired ideas like big government.

The first-term senator and Cuban-American is a rising GOP star and a tea party favorite. He was reported to be among Romney's running mate choices.

Republicans hope Rubio can boost Romney, who is having a tough time winning over Latino voters.

Rubio introduced Romney as the former Massachusetts governor prepared to formally accept his party's presidential nomination.

    I thought all the speeches at the RNC convention were awesome. But, I particularly found Ryan and Rubio’s the most significant and moving. I lived and worked in South Miami for 12 years. I have a lot of respect for the Cuban people. He is a shining example of the great gem we have in Cuban-Americans. Both Ryan and Rubio are destined for even greater roles in our great country. That is, if we don’t hand it over to the maxist-commies.
