Sen. Marco Rubio mocked the economic plan that President Obama started touting this week on the campaign trail, calling it a “picture book.”

“He just put out a picture book that he calls his plan for the next four years,” the rising conservative star told the thousands of people packed into the Pensacola Civic Center. “Unfortunately, there is nothing really innovative in that picture book.”


Mr. Rubio and Rep. Connie Mack are campaigning in Floridas with Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, in Florida, which is one of the big prizes in the 2012 election.

Mr. Rubio said that Mr. Romney will push for a “regulations that make sense,” a tax code that is easier to understand and to repeal and replace “Obamacare.”

Democrats, he warned, think that every problem the nation faces can be solved with a new spending program.

“They are going to claim those are not their ideas, but I have a picture book to prove it,” Mr. Rubio said.
