Rubio's Water Episode

5 posts in this topic

Has the Left overplayed and overrated the cottonmouth episode suffered by the Florida senator? Of course. Was CNN’s "Career Ender" chyron a tasteless, over-the-top and disrespectful shot that certainly wouldn’t have been taken at a Democrat politician? Without question.

Bob Menendez traffics in underage whores and Barack Obama snorts cocaine. But Rubio’s reach for water during a speech is a Career Ender. It’s enough to make you grieve for the loss of an America worth having.

For his part, Rubio has responded to the stumble with class, humility and good humor. And his PAC has now branded water bottles in an effort to make lemonade out of Tuesday night’s lemons.

But he needs to have an opening on his staff.

On substance, Rubio’s speech was one of the best responses to a State of the Union in a long time. And before his cottonmouth episode kicked in, his delivery was good – he was passionate, he was energetic, he had the right mix of optimism and outrage.

But it was clear the speech was too long for the time allotted for it, and Rubio was racing through it. And it was also clear he hadn’t properly hydrated before speaking.

Wait... was this supposed to be a big deal?

I dunno. First he's trying to defend someone who had cottonmouth, and then he goes on about some Obama "body man".

I've come to realize that I just can't understand people and their politics.

Drinking water during the middle of a speech is perverse and obscene. I was disgusted by Rubio's actions and I probably have PTSD now so I guess they're going to have to take my guns away.

Thanks, Rubio.

Rubio is but a pawn of the Republican establishment; an opportunist that the Republicans actually think will garner them part of the Latino vote. They pull his strings, he says what they want him to.
