Since we’ve been out of town I’ve had a lot of opportunity to listen to my satelite radio and so I’ve heard most of the coverage detailing Marco Rubio’s response to President Obama’s State of the Union address. I have to say that I, too, am appalled by the sip.
CNN provided hours of coverage for what they’ve called “the sip seen around the World” and I couldn’t be more proud of them for the hours that they’ve spent covering the late breaking news. Situations like this need to be discussed. Let’s not waste time focusing on what he said because it really doesn’t matter…
CNN brought up an interesting point in that this sip could cost Rubio the 2016 election and I couldn’t agree more. If he can’t handle a dry mouth during a speech, can he really handle North Korea?!
The sip of water is a clear sign of arrogance. Why should the American people have to wait two seconds for him to rehydrate?! He obviously doesn’t value your time.
Perhaps this was yet another failed attempt by the Republican party to connect with American voters by pretending that they’re just like us…
For Republicans who consider voting for candidates based on their politics and the changes that they can bring to this country, I urge you to reconsider.
Kudos to Wolf Blizter, Anderson Cooper, and their friends over at CNN for covering stories that nobody else gives a crap about. I probably would have voted for Rubio in 2016 but, once I heard about the sip of water, I said H2…uh oh.
I feel that CNN missed out on some important potential headlines and so I’d like to share some of them with you:
Could A Sip of Water Drown His Chances in 2016?!
Why Water? We’ll Have the Anwers America is Thirsting for Coming Up…
Did the Blunder Dampen His Political Career?
The Republican Response Dripping with Disrespect.
Outrage Pouring Out Over a Sip of Water.
A Sip of Water Overflowing With Arrogance.
*Please note the sarcasm in this post. Do I really think that CNN should have spent hours covering this story?! Absolutely not. My Mad About It Monday is this: These attempts to distract are ridiculous. Instead of focusing so much of your time on a sip of water (which other politicians have done) why not spend that time discussing what was actually said?! I mean, really…come on.
