Rubio says Obama of 2008 is ‘gone,’ makes case for Romney amid VP buzz

Rubio, without explicitly discussing his vice presidential aspirations, staunchly defended Republican candidate Mitt Romney over a series of recent controversies. And he launched broadside after broadside at Romney’s presumed opponent. In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” he said President Obama has been in Washington so long — he’s been there seven-and-a-half years — that he’s starting to sound “just like anybody else in Washington.”
