Rubio jokes: ‘I needed water’
while delivering Republican response

The Hill [Washington DC], by Jonathan Easley

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/13/2013 11:43:40 AM

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Wednesday joked about his water break during his rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union address. “I mean I needed water, what am I going to do?” Rubio said on ABC’s "Good Morning America," after again ducking away from the camera to reach for his water bottle. “God has a funny way of reminding us that we’re human.” As he delivered the live GOP response Tuesday, the Florida senator seemed nervous, and awkwardly paused at one point to grab an off-camera bottle of water and take a sip.

Comments:
As usual, the leftist media love to change the subject and ridicule.

We finally see two potential candidates that communicate conservative ideas directly to the people. Rubio and Carson. Rove probably wants us to run Jeb Bush.

Rubio´s smart to just joke about it. The media made it their main story because the SOTU was so offensively full of shirt. So Rubio just says "whatever, I was thirsty" and if they keep harping on it, they look mean-spirited and vapid. Which they are, of course.

Rand Paul did a response on The Blaze TV following Rubio´s. I think the real fight for the nomination for conservatives will be between Rubio and Paul. Did you know Rand Paul was an eye surgeon and when he has time, he performs eye surgery on those who can´t afford it. I think he makes even more sense than Rubio and I´m kind of apprehensive about Rubio and the illegals.

Yes, I recall the media making fun of Barky in 2008 when he was throwing perfect spirals with bottles of Evian ( naive spelled backwards) to save the lives of those in the crowd who were fainting from hearing his voice.
It´s really hard to disguise the hate I feel for the MSM.

Rubio approves of Karl Rove´s Conservative Victory Project AND is at the same time saying the T.E.A. is dangerous----------oooooops, think he just lost big time support which landed him in the Senate.
A much more eloquent, articulate voice would have been the newest Senator from the State of Texas (oh, but he is a true Conservative). Listen to Cruz´s remarks when approached by a reporter at Brietbart. Several other videos one needs to see at Brietbart also.

Flies constantly land on Obama´s face and lips and that´s described as perfectly normal by the media.
Rubio takes a sip of water and it becomes a scandal.
Rubio was articulate about explaining
conservative principles .
He had passion and charisma and the Democrats are obviously very nervous about
the cheerful and charismatic Rubio becoming the face of the Republican Party.
It appears that the Tea Party has pretty much become
a de facto third party .
Rand Paul felt it necessary to distinguish
his message from Rubio´s .
Ironically , Paul was actually more sympathetic to the plight of illegals than Rubio was.
Everyone involved with the Republican Party
and the Tea Party should stop the pretense and just make it official so we can all move on .

Rubio is not ready for prime time. It was amature hour. Despite a hillarious case of the nervves, his speech was all "me, my, mine, I, I". Who does that remind you of? the Son of The Millworker? Frankly, I don´t give a damn about your biography, Marco. I certainly don´t care what your parents did/ didn´t do. I am tired of minorities being whisked to the front of the line like the Presidency is some kind of college admissions exam. If Rubio ever had actually worked in our warehouses and factories, he would know that the American worker has been squeezed for decades by the loose policies of the Federal Reserve and the millions of illegal guests who have flooded the labor market. Rubio is a tiresome phony with a bad sense of entitlement. Unfortunately the "conservative" media has already elected him as our nominee, giving his Rubio-Schumer amnesty plan cover, and will shove this goofball down our throats. Rand Paul, on the other hand, stole the show.

The country is going to hell in a handbasket thanks to the policies of Emperor Zippy. We have chronic 7.9% unemployment, our deficit is 17 trillion dollars and we are militarily on the run all over the world, also due to Zippy´s policies. And the media chooses to focus on is Rubio taking a sip of water? Really??!

Rubio handled it well afterward, he posted a little pic of a Poland Springs bottle on his Twitter feed. Laugh along with them and move on, pivot back to the issues. I thought he did OK, though he seemed kind of nervous and the lighting was not so good.

But more to the point, Rubio has aligned himself with the moderate compromisers and against the conservatives/Tea Party. Just know what kind of Republican you´re getting, if you think he is going to be the next wonder boy.

What´s needed is a leader with strong principles who doesn´t scare people. Think Reagan. I have not seen a Reagan. I realize that Reagan was from a different time - with its unique set of circumstances - but the basic truth does not change even in a million years: strength in principles and the ability to attract people, not scare them away.

I honestly think a lot of these younger Republicans are like career politicians who see the whole thing as a game. It´s a game to them. The Presidency is not a game. The greatest leaders of America never saw it as a game, and that´s why they were the greatest.

When I moved to DC in 1999 for my first job in the conservative movement I didn’t think much about finding a boyfriend or husband. I was 21 and just out of college. I was ready to work. But at a conference for conservative college students, I recall one speaker told the audience that the most important decision they’ll ever make is who they decide to marry. The last 15 years in the conservative movement now seem like the lightening round of a game show. Travel across the country with Ann Coulter. Ding! Direct CPAC for five successful years. Ding!

Every conservative by now should have noticed that February has become Ronald Reagan Month for Republicans. The man’s birthday was last week, February 6, the forerunner to Lincoln’s birthday (February 12), Washington’s birthday (February 22), and President’s Day (February 17). Throughout the nation, county and statewide Republican groups have been changing their longtime annual Lincoln Day dinners into Reagan Day dinners. I’m speaking on Reagan multiple times this month, including at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, where we’re releasing (pardon the plug) my new book that endeavors to answer the question “What is a Reagan conservative?” Thus, this is

In 2012, terrorist and activist Chicago professor Bill Ayers told his followers that the left had “absolute access to the community, the school… the classroom,” and that is where it should do its “movement-building.” In October of 2009, when speculation had arisen that Ayers had been the real author of Barack Obama’s autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the activist was in Washington D.C. to present a keynote address at a conference sponsored by the Renaissance Group. Also speaking at the conference was Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, and Nevin Brown of Achieve, Inc., who spoke about the “Common Core State

Two members of Congress have written a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell urging Goodell and the league “to take a formal position in support of a name change” by the Washington Redskins. The letter by Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) is to be sent Monday to Goodell. “The NFL can no longer ignore this and perpetuate the use of this name as anything but what it is: a racial slur,” Cantwell and Cole write in the letter. “It is clear that you haven’t heard the leading voices of this country — and not just Indian

The glitches and other problems with the ObamaCare website that sparked a national firestorm are similar to those military veterans using the federal government’s online benefits system have routinely faced for about the past 18 months. Eric Jenkins, a veteran and American Federation of Government Employees representative, recently told Congress that during January the Veterans Benefits Management System crashed about once a week with downtimes ranging from one hour to multiple days. “The constant … technical issues and frequent shutdowns make it difficult for me and others to serve veterans,” Jenkins told a House Veterans Affairs subcommittee.

When Speaker John Boehner declared in December that conservative groups like Heritage Action for America had “lost all credibility,” Washington was stunned. For years, the powerful organizations had pushed congressional Republicans further and further to the right, keeping score of every vote — even if a “no” vote meant shutting down the government. But Heritage Action is now rolling out a less confrontational approach by holding its first-ever Conservative Policy Summit on Monday to celebrate ideas from conservative stars like Sens. Mike Lee of Utah and Ted Cruz of Texas, and Rep. Raul Labrador of Idaho on everything from health care

David Brooks seems to think so. On NBC’s Meet the Press, Brooks said that the immigration reform debate is really “about who runs the Republican Party.” That is, “do the leaders who want to have a long-term future, a presidential, national future as a multi-racial party, do they run the party, or does Mike [Needham] run the party. And the truth is, Mike runs the party.” Brooks is partly right. The immigration debate is about whose influence is primary within the Republican Party.

MADISONVILLE, Texas— Bursts of applause had already interrupted Rafael Cruz repeatedly, but the loudest cheer of the night came when the Cuban-born pastor finally made the Barack Obama-Fidel Castro comparison the crowd had been waiting for. "He acts no different than that bearded guy I left behind in Cuba," the father of firebrand U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz told a packed tea party gathering. Likening the president to Castro has become something of a trademark for the elder Cruz, and it´s actually one of his milder comments.

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative?

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid.

"Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

ASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says a gay University of Missouri football player is “an inspiration to all of us.” The first lady took to Twitter on Monday to comment on Michael Sam, the all-American college player who announced Sunday that he is gay. Mrs. Obama says she “couldn’t be prouder” of Sam’s courage, both on and off the field. The tweet was signed “-mo,” which is how the White House marks messages personally sent by the first lady. Sam could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL. He’s scheduled to participate in the league’s weeklong scouting camp, where potential draftees

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the

The emergence of Twitter as a social media goliath has unleashed gossip and speculation as a media force. The long term consequences are unknowable, but in the meantime, with a far left president with a dicey past, it is producing some highly amusing results. Last night, President Obama explained to Bob Costas of NBC Sports why he wasn´t attending the Sochi Olympics, but the substance of what he had to say was lost in the controversy that erupted on Twitter over whether or not he was stoned. Yahoo writer Mike Oz took the high road, as would nearly any journalist, and described the president as looking "sleepy."
