Skip to comments.Marco Rubio's "water bottle-gate" moment
Posted on 02/13/2013 9:44:17 AM PST by chessplayer
In the official GOP rebuttal to President Obama's State of the Union speech Tuesday, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., made a passionate case for the limited role of government in American society. But the gist of his message was lost on the Twittersphere about 11 minutes in, when the visibly overheated senator broke away for a quick sip of water.

Country coming apart at the seams and this is waht the media will fixate on.
It is precisely because “The One” NEVER stops reading his teleprompter for such nonsense. He learned NOT to swallow a long time ago!
How dare he sips the Kings water.
The whole episode is about as relevant as CBS.
Rubio is not ready for prime time. In addition, he is also a RINO who loves to tell people what they want to hear. As FL House Speaker, Rubio systematically blocked every attempt to enforcement immigration laws, including E-Verify, and tried to pass in-state tuition for illegals. I don’t trust Rubio, and never will, despite how many regurgitated Reagan and Mark Levin sentiments come off his silvery tongue.
The top question for media coverage of the Rubio dihydrogen-monoxide scandal hearings about to begin..............
Unfortunately, CBS as a propaganda tool is relevant.
The liberal left has no idea ho retarded this makes them look!
Is that ALL you can find fault with? He got thirsty? REALLY???
You are so right-the only thing “visibly overheated” is the driveby media coverage...
Put it in true context. Rubio was right on and all the left knows is slash and burn anyway they can.
Sorry for the Caps..
While the editors at 60 minutes cut out nose picking, yeast infection scratching cooters, uneven breasts, nipple peekers, coughs, sneezes, eyeball rolling, and farts...........Rubio’s water sip is just crossing the line on live TV.
Otherwise, they would ignore the water and attack him on substance (or at least something that would leave a mark).
It may be all they've got, but it's enough to sway the low-information voter, who has proven to be decisive in recent elections. Recall that "Big Bird" proved to be a winning issue last November.
The media do as they are told to do by the democrips. The twittersphere is designed to herd the stupid masses. To prevent them from awakening to focus upon the fraud and devastation little barry bastard boy and the democrips are instituting to end the Republic, operatives post such trash on twittersphere to distract the buttass stupid obama worshippers.
.....and yet, Joe “The Gaffe Machine” Biden always gets a pass from the media.
Because the media will use ANYTHING to take away from what Rubio actually SAID..you take away the message by pointing out that he drank water(WOW big deal the man was THIRSTY) then the media makes everything he said into a joke..that is what this is all about, the media(who is just another arm of OBama) diverting attention from what Rubio said because they dont want it resonating with people
For all the incredibly vapid young twits who are led by their noses by the media, you will be paying for the debt being piled up by Obama and the Democrats. That’s when conservatives will have the last laugh.
