Rubio: Democrats 'Out of Touch With Reality' on ISIS

Fox News' "Fox and Friends"

By    |   Monday, 21 December 2015 01:53 PM EST

Democrats are "completely out of touch with reality" when it comes to ISIS, GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio said Monday, in response to Hillary Clinton's Saturday night debate statements about the extremists' threats.

"The vast majority of Americans understand that this threat is not under control," the Florida Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program. "In fact it continues to grow in scope and sophistication, and [Clinton is] talking about how we have a plan."

But, Rubio wants to know, "how is that plan any different than what we had in place a month ago or two months ago when the president was claiming that ISIS was contained and then a few days later they attacked Paris and less than a month later they attacked San Bernardino or at least had a terrorist attack in San Bernardino?"

President Barack Obama is trying to compare ISIS to countries, saying they are not an industrial power and do not have a large economy or military industrial complex, said Rubio, 

"But that's what makes them dangerous," he said. "If they had an Army headquarters and Navy we'd know where to attack them. They control territory in a vast number of countries by using propaganda to radicalize lone wolf attackers whom we may never be able to identify until it's too late. It's another example of how this president misunderstands, doesn't understand the threat that we're facing."

And Clinton is in a tough spot, said Rubio, as she was secretary of state for "four of the seven disastrous foreign policy years," and ISIS began to emerge in Syria while she was still in office.

"They're all circling the wagon because they're all responsible for what's happened here, completely out of touch with how Americans feel," said Rubio. "How are the American people supposed to feel when they feel vulnerable as ever to the terrorist attacks and you have a president and a leading contender for the Democratic primary arguing oh, everything's going great?"
