Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Wednesday that "in general," the Obama presidency is over.

"I saw a commentator today say that these polls, what they reflect, is that the Obama presidency is over," Rubio said on Fox News's "Hannity." "And I agree with that. I think it is, in general. And obviously he still has responsibilities that I hope he will live up to. But whether it's foreign policy, or the issue on the border, or the VA or the IRS losing its e-mails, or Benghazi before that, it seems like every day now or every other day, there's a new crisis."

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released this week showed Obama's approval rating on foreign policy reaching a new record low and his overall approval rating tying a record low.

Rubio criticized President Obama on Iraq, saying "he has no plan" for the country where conflict has erupted.
