Whew! “Marco Rubio’s Water Flap Shall Pass”
Our long national nightmare is over!
(Politico) Sen. Marco Rubio’s inopportune case of cotton mouth during his State of the Union response may slow his rapidly rising stock, but will likely have no little lingering impact on his 2016 prospects, Republican operatives said Wednesday.
“The water moment did not bother me,” said Republican strategist Bruce Haynes, of Purple Strategies. “I thought it made him human. Washington types will snort and buzz about it but it probably made the average voter smile. And for Republicans, making voters smile is a welcome change of pace.”
I really, really wanted to ignore this non-story story. It is much ado about nothing. Of course, this nothing burger allows the 90% liberal media to focus on anything other than what Rubio’s message in response to Obama’s SOTU was about. And highlights exactly why the media is worthless. The morons at CNN (which would have no ratings without airports and company break rooms) actually put up a graphic wondering if drinking water was a career ender, then said “it was a joke“.
Then Maggie Haberman finds all sorts of squishy Republicans who show “concern” over the response and the water moment. Let’s see: Rubio had a sip of water. Obama is unable to complete a sentence or speech, especially off teleprompter, without a constant litany of ums, ahs, ers, and other pause words.
Strange how no one in the media wonders about this.
