    Rubio takes a drink of water, major news item everywhere.

    Obama policies kill an ambassador and 3 others in Libya, MSM doesn’t know a damn thing about it. Mute.

    Time to put the MSM out of business.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OQI5D66OXO7X2FE4NVCZC7BAMA Joe

      I never heard anything about Libya – What are you talking about? (sarc)

    • Sober_Thinking

      Spot on.

      Shrillary shreiks,”What difference does it make now?” Whether she watched the slaughter of Americans in Benghazi and did nothing or whether she watched the slaughter and wanted to, but did nothing, there is no difference becaused they were slaughtered anyway. CNN (communist news network) wants her to be the next president and Rubio takes a sip of water during a speech and chances for running are not possible according to the mainstream media. Insanity reigns from every mainstream media source. The mainstream media will continue to exist as long as the American public allows them to exist.

  • notsofastthere

    I saw in Marco as sense of embarrassment and apology, when he took that gulp of water. That showed me that he had a conscience, which Leftist media are just incapable of having.

  • mikeinidaho

    Looks like the communist media’s attempt to denigrate Rubio’s performance backfired big time! Couldn’t happen to a bigger bunch of losers. It is very refreshing to see an un-scripted “real” guy on TV instead of a DC-insider, perfumed prince posturing.
    Go Marco, go!

  • anneinarkansas

    But, but, but Wolfie Blitzer says it was a “career ending” event!

    Someone send Wolfie a bottle of Rubio Water.

    • badbadlibs

      This is the first I’m hearing of this….so, you’re saying blitzer actually said Rubio ended his career by taking a drink of water?

      • tinlizzieowner

        I won’t say for sure it was Blitzer but yes.

        • badbadlibs

          Sounds like wishful thinking on the lefts part….what morons.

  • Philo Beddoe

    Soon, there will be questions about the brand of water along with where it is purified. Also, why didn’t he extend his pinky when drinking out of the bottle.

    • NWIGOP

      It’s not water, it’s pure vodka.

      • Philo Beddoe

        If he was a tuff guy from Texas it would be Effen vodka.

        Since he’s from Florida, it’s flavored

        • NWIGOP

          Though I was born and raised in Indiana my family is from Texas. My uncle, when he was alive, drank straight vodka and smoked his cigars. I like watermelon flavored vodka.

        • tinlizzieowner

          “TEA’ flavored, that is. ;-)

          • NWIGOP

            I have wondered what Smirnoff vodka mixed with perhaps Lipton tea would taste like. Perhaps i’ll give it a try around my birthday.

            • tinlizzieowner

              You’ll have to tell me, I quit drinking 42 years ago.

            • DCTribeFan

              Theres been tea-flavored vodka on the market for years now. Mix it with lemonade for your very own Arnie Bagger Palmer. Try it–it’s good.

              It won’t help you spell SOSHALIST on your rally signs, though. Just sayin….

              • NWIGOP

                Well i am not a big drinker and don’t immerse myself in the study of alcoholic beverages.

    • ryanomaniac

      There are hookers in the bottle.

    • Sober_Thinking

      I thought Republicans were for dirty water…

      ;)

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        BOOM! :-)

    • notsofastthere

      The EPA wants to know where he disposed his polluting empty plastic bottle

      • NYGino

        Mayor Bloominidiot wan’t to know where he emptied his bladder.

        • notsofastthere

          The part of NY I can’t get out of me is my love for REAL Italian sausage and Real Italian bread, that no other state can duplicate. I DO NOT miss the politics and taxes. I escaped the Welfare state only to be encased in a Welfare federal government.
          OH! and my NY accent also – just can’t get rid of that Nyurk accent.

          • NYGino

            You tawkin da me? Fagehdabowdit.

            Real Italian Bread. You are so right. Impossible to find outside of a 50 mile radius of Mott Street.

          • tshtsh

            Don’t forget REAL Brooklyn (Bar) Pizza!!!

            • notsofastthere

              That does it! I am now more tormented by my desire for NY food, than I am by my loathing for Obama. I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight with my craving for real bread and sausage. OMG could it get any worse? LOL

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ODSG4THJW3SRGYHSQ7KHU32U5Q 3D 81

    I guess this is one way to get in touch with pop culture.

    Dont take yourself too seriously and people will love you for it and hopefully they will listen to what you have to say. Thats what the leftys do best.

  • Betsey_Ross

    Right on, Marco. Turn it around and make them look like the dolts they are. Snark at them as much as possible. We’re trying out here, but you have to do it too. Van Jones is afraid of you. Keep on keeping on!

    BTW, Van, be afraid, be very afraid!

    • Conniption Fitz

      Van Jones is also afraid of:

      Sarah Palin
      Ted Cruz
      Rand Paul
      Mark Levin
      The TEA Party

      • sDee

        and the truth

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          …and the Constitution, America, capitalism, free markets, the rule of law, conservatives, possibly his own shadow… :-P

  • Rshill7

    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.)

    Dear Rs:

    You make me sick.

    Sincerely,

    Rs.

    • NYGino

      Say ten Our Fathers and ten Hail Marys. Go in peace my son. You are forgiven………this time.

      • Rshill7

        …and as the phosphorescent halo, once more moves into position, hovering haplessly over his hairdo, like an alien saucer collecting another specimen…he uttered these wonderful words of wisdom:

        “Stay thirsty my friends!”

  • NWIGOP

    I hear they stopped selling the metal/aluminum one because some kid got his tongue stuck.

  • sDee

    Rome is burning. Nero plays golf. We our entertain our Senators on Twitter, and debate Amnesty for the German hordes.

    • TexasPGRRider

      ….as islam infils our essence….

  • Bryan Ewbank

    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. :-(

    • PatrickHenrysBody

      Indeed! What you get in bottle of H2Obama: empty speeches and broken promises.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OQI5D66OXO7X2FE4NVCZC7BAMA Joe

    He turned a LEMON into Lemonade

    What a joke!

    This shows how easily the peoples are fooled

  • Rocco11

    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

    • badbadlibs

      You just perfectly described the liberal brain.
      It’s a wonder they don’t put their shoes on their hands and gloves on their feet…that’s how bassakwards their world is.

  • colliemum

    That ‘Rubio bottle’ will never take off!

    He should’ve gone for that nifty little one he actually drank out of.

    ;-)

  • colliemum

    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?

    • sDee
      • colliemum

        Yep!

        And have a nice brew in it, with milk and sugar even … !

    • poljunkie

      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!

      • colliemum

        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!)

        • poljunkie

          I was going to hit like but I love it.

    • TexasPGRRider

      A cup for me not unlike Elizabeth gets from our Hyacinth please….

      • 3seven77

        I love that show! One of my favorite parts is when Hyacinth talks to “She-rrri-den” on the phone.

        • TexasPGRRider

          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”….

    • tshtsh

      One of my favorite things when I visited England and Ireland was not having to “beg” for a cup of tea in a restaurant.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Gulp.

  • Amjean

    Good for him.

  • Amjean

    Good for him. Now, perhaps Obama can start selling umbrellas!/sarc

    • tinlizzieowner

      Good idea, since people like Rubio are ‘raining’ common sense. ;-)

  • NYGino

    It has become painfully clear; this country needs a water bottle czar.

    • Rshill7

      I second that emotion.

      He or she should be equipped with a hollow scepter filled with…wait for it…

      High Quality H2O.

      Special consideration given to those applicants with water on the knee or the brain.

  • TexasPGRRider

    The American Dream in ACTION !!! Turn a negative into a Positive !!! Great, just GREAT!!!

  • poljunkie

    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.

  • tinlizzieowner

    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. :-)

    • TexasPGRRider

      “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 !!!!”

      • 3seven77

        “Romnel, you magnificent b@stard, I read your book!”

      • tinlizzieowner

        Just for the record, I hang around with a couple guys who actually served under Patton. ;-)

        • TexasPGRRider

          Next time you see em, Please tell em I THANK THEM for My FREEDOM, and Welcome Home !!!!

  • keninil

    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 !!

    • TexasPGRRider

      THAT`s why they made IT the issue. His points are too strong to argue against. Hence, ridicule….Rules for Radicals

  • NYGino

    I can see it now, conferense table, CNN, everybody going “H2OShiite”

  • Rocco11

    And yet they can’t bring themselves to do a story on that pervert Bob Menendez.

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    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.

  • PatrickHenrysBody

    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?

    • notsofastthere

      Er? Uhm? I’m going with number 2. My husband walking on water.
      Thank you
      Michelle

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        LOL…thanks “Michelle”!

  • proudhispanicconservative

    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?

  • http://www.facebook.com/julie.hanrattyjacobs Julie Hanratty-Jacobs

    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.
