CNN Uses Instant Replay To Mock Rubio's 'Water Bottle-Gate Moment'
cns news ^ | 2/13/12 | Mike Ciandella

CNN treated Marco Rubio reaching for a sip of water like he'd fumbled the ball away in the last seconds of the Super Bowl.

"Social media is all about this," joked CNN's Chris Cuomo, as he reenacted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) reaching for a water bottle during the February 12 CNN commentary on President Obama's State of the Union address.

CNN then cut to a video of Rubio drinking water during his response to the President's speech. The whole scene played out like commentary from a football game, complete with instant replay of the "blunder."

Please tell me that this Chris Cuomo guy isn’t a son/grandson of those political hacks from New York . . . seriously, does the lamestream media have no shame in currying favor with the DemoQuack establishment by hiring their children? First Chelsea Clinton lands a gig with the media, and now Chris Cuomo? Is he related to Mario and Andrew?

Yes he is. I believe that he is the son of Mario and the brother of Andrew.

Rubio came off looking good as it was evident he was not using a TelePrompter and the strategic placement of the water bottle was purposeful as to draw attention away from the Obama State of the Union address.

Just looked it up. Son of former Gov. Mario, and brother of current NY Gov. Andrew.

I saw a video of the "bottle-gate" up at work last night.

Really? THAT is what they are all barking about?

The communists have nothing.

The are grasping at spider webs...

So many things and issues in the Rubio speech to talk about and CNN focuses on the drink.

What a shallow network. This is what get as “news” now?

When a Republican drinks water, MAINSTREAM MEDIA GOES NUTS WITH OUTRAGE.

When a Democrat kills, filets, and eats an infant, Mainstream media purrs and talks about what a wonderful chef they are.

Thank goodness he didn’t say CORPSE-MAN or talk about our 57 states. He’d never recover from those mistakes!

This is like when Palin read a note off her hand.

The "scandal" lasted for weeks.

I wonder if any photo even exists of Ted Kennedy with a bottle of water.

Character assasination. Mockery. Hate. The left will do whatever it takes to destroy him before he threatens the leftist stranglehold on power.

Yep. That’s it...they’ve picked their target and are now freezing it. Rubio’s toast - according to their playbook - with this gift of the water bottle grab. Too bad the ridiculousness and irony of this won’t be understood by the low info voters.

Sounds like the kids over at the sophomoric CNN think someone getting a drink of water is funny. I wonder what they drink.

At least they have their priorities straight-a drink of water vs Benghazi. Aren’t they the loyal little lackies.

The difference is Dirksen didn’t act like he was sneaking the drink. He maintained his poise and self-confidence, whereas Rubio acted self-concious and came across as if he were sneaking a drink.

One displayed the poised confidence of leadership, the other did not.

Makes a difference.

Sometimes I reckon CNN wished Obama was a republican as he would be a bountiful subject for their mockery, being the pretentious jackass fool he is.
Instead, CNN has to queue up with the rest of the lame stream media to lick Obama's boots when he steps in it.

They can’t bother to fact check the President but they can run this story?

Rubio must really scare the Democrats.
