Rubio Decries 'Isolationist Candidates' in Speech

On Tuesday, Marco Rubio attempted to frame himself as the only Republican presidential candidate capable of confronting America's national security challenges. In a speech, Rubio called out his primary opponents as "isolationists?more passionate about weakening our military and intelligence capabilities than about destroying our enemies." His speech at the American Legion in Hooksett, New Hampshire warned, "Words and political stunts cannot ensure our security. ISIS cannot be filibustered." With just five weeks to the New Hampshire primary and a month to the Iowa caucus, Rubio tried to make the GOP primary contest solely about national security grounds, pitching himself as the only truly capable candidate in that arena.
