Via Fox News, Marco Rubio roasted Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul over Paul’s defense of Obama’s proposal to lift the embargo on Cuba:
“Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, argued that the Castro regime intends to reap the economic benefits of the U.S. easing commercial and travel restrictions with no intentions of improving human rights conditions and moving toward democracy.
“It will grow [Cuba’s] economy, but it won’t grow political freedom,” Rubio said on ABC’s “This Week.”
Rubio and Paul, a Kentucky Republican and another likely 2016 presidential contender, have been involved in a Twitter exchange since Obama announced the Cuba plan Wednesday.
Paul recently said Rubio, by opposing the Cuba plan, was “acting like an isolationist,” a criticism often directed at Paul.
Rubio said Sunday that Paul’s support for the Cuba plan makes him “the chief cheerleader for Obama’s foreign policy.””
