This has become an excellent example of how PATHETIC the media really has become ...we have a lot more important issues that should be covered, but they continued to be ignored because a Republican taking a sip of water during a speech is a lot more newsworthy. It just blows my mind the incompetence the media projects itself to every day all day long and they seem to be so proud of it. The bigger problem that is emerging is the power they now have and by controlling what the public hears and not hears is becoming very dangerous indeed.
The media want to use the bottle to distract us from what was a great reponse to the empty suit, they fail to realize it works both ways, what did Obama say again?
Land sakes, Rubio drinks water to wet his whistle and he gets lambasted for that? Which one is more believable? Rubio drinking water after a case of dry mouth or Zero walking on water, as reported by his many adoring, mind-numbed acolytes?
Good for Rubio!!! The best way to defeat liberals is by making fun of them. Once the low information voters out there start laughing at liberals, then they really have lost.
I find it amazing that out of Rubio's 16 minute speech that his drink of water is the only thing the MSM can comment on !!
He really did make some really good points during the talking portion !!
Pathetic liberals didn't dare touch what he had to say, so they had to grovel for something? It's the only thing left for Alinski-ites to do.
'Rules for Radicals':
RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
There's only one problem with Alinsski's 'Rules for Radicals. When you understand how they work...... They don't. Good going Marco. :-)
"There`s only one problem ...". Like when George C. Scott as Patton is screaming from the hilltop when his tanks out flanked Rommels: "I READ YOUR BOOK !!!!"
My husband said last night the person who placed the water for Marco Rubio was likely a Dem intern. hahaha.
You could see on Marco thinking, Im so thirsty, but the water is just a leeeetle out of my reach. I can just …about…get…it…and…still…look..into …the …camera…
Van Jones should be afraid of Rubio- because he comes off as human.
Aaaand another thing!!!
Why water bottles? What's wrong with having a nice cuppa placed strategically when speaking?
After all - what could be better for a TEA Party candidate to be seen sipping from a cuppa?
One of my favorite things when I visited England and Ireland was not having to "beg" for a cup of tea in a restaurant.
I like her reactions when the dog barks from the car as she proceeds to visit her sisters. An old girlfriend got me HOOKED on Britcoms several years back. They ran on PBS on the weekends. There are Tons of full episodes of various Britcoms now on Youtube, this series among them. Now, I watch them "at will"....
Ha ha I love it.
I saw a special once on hospitals in your neck of the woods, and I loved that the tea trolley came thru all the wards!
Yes, you can't beat a good British cuppa!
In normal households, it is considered extremely rude not to offer a cup of tea to your visitors as soon as they're through the door: friends, family, workmen - it doesn't matter. Time of day doesn't matter either.
Not may people know this: tea contains naturally occurring salicylic acid. that's aspirin to you and me. So giving a patient, or someone who's had a shock, a cuppa makes good sense: it's hot, the sugar and milk calm down, and the tiny trace of salicylic acid relaxes.
Now I'm gonna have my tea: that's the low-brow version of dinner!
(And that's another reason why foreigners hate English: they hear and understand the words but have no idea what we're talking about!)
That 'Rubio bottle' will never take off!
He should've gone for that nifty little one he actually drank out of.
GOOD POINT there collie. However, I believe the one he used was smaller, a dinklette. Hardly enough to quench one`s thirst. Happy Valentines Day Sister....
"That 'Rubio bottle' will never take off!".
I have a surprise for you my Brit friend. My Mrs. just ordered 2 of them and to use words Barry seems to be fond of, she's not willing to spend "one thin dime" more than she has to. ;-)
Teddy Kennedy leaves a woman to drown in Chappaquiddick, that makes him a "liberal lion." Rubio takes a sip of water, and his career is over. lol
Should also make "Obama" bottles and send them, gratis, to everyone in the media so they can be clearly seen as carrying water for him. :-(
Rome is burning. Nero plays golf. We our entertain our Senators on Twitter, and debate Amnesty for the German hordes.
I'm a self-employed business owner. However, I also had a bottled water this morning on the way to the dentist. Was so disgusted with myself, I figured the only redeeming move that could be made after such heathenry was to have my tooth drilled without any lidocaine, and fire myself as soon as I got home. So, now I'm unemployed, and my tooth hurts.
Maybe my customers won't notice and I can resume in good conscience.
(Ok, I got the lidocaine...so please excuse my face for looking like it just had a stroke. I neither expect nor deserve forgiveness for the water-drinking episode.)
You make me sick.
