On the 13 February 2013 edition of CBS This Morning, Norah O'Donnell and Charlie Rose lived up to their reputation for hammering Republican/conservative guests, as they interviewed Republican Senator Marco Rubio. Rose mouthed a line from President Obama's Tuesday State of the Union address, where the chief executive invoked the families of gun violence victims to push for stricter gun control: "Do you agree with the President that those people deserve a vote?"
Later in the segment, O'Donnell strongly hinted that the Florida politician, and Republicans in general, were extremists:
NORAH O'DONNELL: Senator, you have been called 'the Republican savior'. (Rubio laughs) Yesterday, you voted against the Violence Against Women Act. You've opposed repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell'. You opposed universal background checks for gun buyers. You've yet to introduce a bill on immigration reform. Is that the future of the Republican Party?
