Marco Rubio is a guy who was a Tea Party guy. He was not an establishment guy. He was running against Charlie Crist --- and we like Marco Rubio and we've watched him. And then he got into office, and he did the Gang of Eight bill. And then he called --- he called Ted Cruz every name under the sun and said, "He's just planted a poison pill in the Gang of Eight bill. He's a liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar." And so people started to believe that Ted Cruz was a liar.
And then he admitted a week ago --- and I'm sorry --- he didn't even admit, he lied about what the Gang of Eight bill was. He came out a week ago and said, "Well, I was only part of the Gang of Eight bill because it was a poison pill."
So wait a minute, Marco.
You accuse Ted Cruz of doing a 38-word amendment to your bill, accused him of a poison pill, which it clearly was, and you called him a liar because it was a poison pill and he didn't come clean with that. At the time, he wouldn't come clean that it was a poison pill. And now you come out, after calling him a liar, and you say the entire bill was a poison pill? Unbelievable.
I want to play something from Spencer Tracy --- in a movie called State of the Union --- where a guy, Spencer Tracy, is running for president. And he gets caught up in running for president, gets caught up with all of the wrong people from the establishment in the Republican Party.
He starts out with the right idea, and he becomes very popular. And then as he's going, he's lost his soul. And his friends reject him. His friends, he comes back, and they're like, "You're not the same guy. You're just part of the problem." And somebody asks him, right before a big broadcast, "What makes you different now than all the rest of them?"
I want you to listen to this, and I want you to think about Marco Rubio. Because Marco Rubio used to say the things that were real. And then he got caught up in the system and the power and the establishment and being popular with all the people like Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush and all the establishment . . . Mitch McConnell, that is, "You can win, man. You can win. Just play our way. If you just do the Gang of Eight bill, you can win." And he's getting worse and worse and worse, to the point where I don't recognize him anymore.
