I mean I needed water, what am I going to do? he said. God has a funny way of reminding us were human.

I love that response. Unfortunately, the commie lib atheists in the state controlled “media” won’t understand it.
Or they would sworn it had changed into white wine as soon as his lips touched it.
Exactly. He did great. Thank you Marco Rubio for stepping up to the plate.
Our entertainment-driven world today generally mistakes style for substance. And I think the same influences that make people hyper-sensitive to defects in superficial qualities also tend to cause people to be blind to failures in substance.
Sounds like God is always foremost on his mind. That’s a good sign.
MSM Headline: Rubio blames God for Water Bottle Incident.
My goodness, a real person
I am liking Rubio more and more. Solid christian who might have some different political views than myself, but really explains why He does things the way He does.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Solid Christian AND Patriot. Boy, he really appreciates his life here. It’s what the USA is/was always about.
I’m surprised the media isn’t speculating whether that actually WAS water he was drinking out of the bottle.
Agree completely. Like I said, I don’t agree with all His views, but He is an excellent communicator.
Rubio was fantastic. Love his rebuttal. I believe that was a Reaganesque speech.
Not sure whether Rubio is who we want for president, but then again not sure he isn’t.
He did just fine.
Listened to it over am so I didn’t catch the search for water. What I did miss is the applause between some excellently delivered lines and don’t understand why these rebuttals are not delivered before a group of supporters which would enhance the visual presentation. After discussions last year I thought that was going to be done.
Rubio was on Fox and Friends this AM. He brought his water bottle along with him and he was joking about it. He said that when you give a speech at a podium, there is always water for you. Might have been classier if he had had a glass of water there rather than a bottle, but what the hey.
I listened to his speech instead of watching it, so I didn’t see the interruption. It was a good speech, IMO, not great and very similar in substance to his speech at the convention. At the convention, he was much more animated because that suited the situation with the enthusiastic audience.
It’s hard to deliver a speech to a camera. While just listening, he sounded pretty bland, but I didn’t see his facial expressions and gestures. If he had over emoted for a radio audience, I’m sure it would have looked fakey on TV. So I think the tone was probably good for the TV audience.
He is a very good communicator and I think he really shines in an impromptu conversational setting. Needs some more work on delivering a good speech. People can help him with that.
I would have enjoyed hearing it in Spanish. It’s probably on You Tube in Spanish.
Actually it would have been cool if he gave the address in his kitchen. Then during the middle of it he stood up and went and retrieved something out of the fridge while continue to tall. I think he needs to show his human side and connect. But none of that matters unless he gets his act together on immigration. He is all over the place on that issue trying to pander to everyone and find middle ground.
I like the man, but I’m not convinced he is qualified to be president as far as experience is concerned.
During the Spanish language portion of his speech, Rubio didn’t reach for water but he did take a big gulp of agua.
The libs are showing this all over tv and the net. The Repubs should retort with a huge picture of Obama with the fly on his face and ask “which would you rather see?”
I agree. The State of the Union address is a tough act to follow, no matter who is the President. The President is announced as he enters the packed chamber, applauded as he greets supporters as he approaches the podium. He is applauded by his party numerous times throughout his speech. There is an atmosphere of pagentry surrounding this event. By contrast, the person giving the rebuttal is sitting in a room alone. There are no supporters in the room, no reaction to any of the points being made. It would be better visually if the rebuttal were given in an auditorium filled with supporters.
From a perception of a pre-packaged commodity to a real person in one somewhat less-than-graceful move. Good for him! Next time the water will be within easy reach.
My take from the verbal/visual experience was that he was either very sincere, or great at playing very sincere.
Rubio did well last night. Too bad he cannot ever be President.
Obama was not qualified by experience but that did not mean squat. As a non-NBC Rubio is not eligible for the office, any more than Obama is, anyway. Two wrongs don't make a right.
My take from just listening was that he was sincere. His expressions and gestures must have reinforced that view.
