How the Democrat media works to destroy Republican candidates
They must view Rubio as a significant threat. Look, they did the same thing to Sarah Palin starting shortly after the 2008 election. Republicans need to find a way to respond to these traps and not just leave it up to the potential candidate. It is in the collective interest of all Republican candidates to stop these destructive attacks on non issues. They may not like Palin or Rubio, but their turn in the barrel will happen as soon as they show potential.
It does not help Rubio that Obama gave essentially the same answer. The only way that might help him is if he responds to the question at the time it is asked by saying he agrees with Obama on the issue.
