Brit Hume: Rubio's Debate Performance Reminded Me Of Dan Quayle


Fox News analyst Brit Hume assesses how much damage Chris Christie's broadside at the eighth GOP debate did to Marco Rubio.

BRIT HUME: Trying to assess how much harm has been done to Marco Rubio tonight, his performance reminded me of nothing so much as Dan Quayle in the 1988 [vice] presidential debate when he was asked repeatedly what he would do if he suddenly became president... and he fumbled the question... and that led to the famous moment where Lloyd Benson who was running for VP for the Democrats... said "I knew Jack Kennedy, Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine and you're no Jack Kennedy."

It fed a narrative about him that [Quayle] was young and inexperienced... so these things can have a lasting impression.
