Skip to comments.For Rubio, Defense Is the Preferred Offense

FL Sen. Marco Rubio gave the GOP response to President Obama's State of the Union address. Now, delivering the opposing party response to a SOTU address is a very difficult task. The President speaks before the assembled chambers of Congress. The responder speaks to a camera in some unrecognized office. That said, the response does allow the opposing party to lay out a governing position for the American public. Unfortunately, Rubio used his time mostly to deflect attacks made by Obama. A prevent defense can work in sports, but rarely in politics.

Bread and circuses.
Well, it was HeeLarryUs.
I mean, who does that? LOL
I Like Marco and believe he will be a relevant voice somewhere between Conservative and Republican.
I’ve done plenty of public speaking. He and his adviosors set him up to screw up.
No one’s fault but, a dry spot turned into a desperate moment that didn’t need happen.
Mental game, that everyone programmed.
Next time, put the Agua right in front of you.
Looked like a desperate gasp for scuba gear, if only to live.
That’s why Rubio could never win a Presidential race. He isn’t agressive enough.
name a GOP candidate who won the WH by playing defense
Rubio touching his face with 1 finger both hands at least 3 times, and then the bend-and-lean WAY to his left for the water - ridiculous.
The Jindal thing all over again!
It felt to me it was destined to happen! Unbelievable/but believable!
Knew this would be the talk in the aftermath . .
He needs way more TV coaching.
Rubio did just fine.
I would say he is a potential GOP leader. A few bugs, but overall very good.
Nice job Rubio. Now can we please get Palin involved?
Shouduh soray his mouth with “Cloraseptic” before hand.
Yes, Rubio gave a fine speech.
The visuals are mocked, out-pacing the speech, in some quarters.
The first touch he did to his face - oh my gosh - nooooh! -
I was hoping that gesture would be the only one, but unfortunately, not so . . .
He is leader material.
And eligible for much T.V. coaching.
Get Palin involved - ?
‘Shouduh spray his mouth with “Clorasepetic” before hand.’
Possibly - he needs to be taught/coached about things like that.
