Was Benghazi a career ender for obama? Nope. Fast & Furious a career ender for obama? Nope. Rubio takes a sip of water. Career ender! Career ender!


This is what propaganda looks like...CNN is ground zero for it...

Blitzer is a self-important imbecile working for a network where those characteristics are a prerequisite for employment.

CNN Uses Instant Replay To Mock Rubio's 'Water Bottle-Gate Moment'

CNN treated Marco Rubio reaching for a sip of water like he'd fumbled the ball away in the last seconds of the Super Bowl.

"Social media is all about this," joked CNN's Chris Cuomo, as he reenacted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) reaching for a water bottle during the February 12 CNN commentary on President Obama's State of the Union address.

CNN then cut to a video of Rubio drinking water during his response to the President's speech. The whole scene played out like commentary from a football game, complete with instant replay of the "blunder."

Rubio water-swig replay tally: MSNBC 155, CNN 34, Fox News 12

“Zero Dark Thirsty,” “Swing and a Miss,” “Parch Madness,” “Tough Swallow,” “Just Add Water,” and “Water Under the Bridge” were a handful of the phrases used on-air by MSNBC on Wednesday to mock Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio for awkwardly pausing to take a sip of water while delivering the official Republican response to the State of the Union address.

Throughout the broadcast day, between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. EST, MSNBC showed a replay of Rubio’s swig approximately 155 times — 101 of which came during “The Rachel Maddow Show,” which played the moment on loop at the bottom of the screen for more than 13 minutes.

One MSNBC personality even used props to get a few extra jabs in.

“With the Republican’s savior [Marco] Rubio’s big night — and what a night it was,” MSNBC “PoliticsNation” host Al Sharpton shouted on-air at one point, before leaning sharply to his right and retrieving a small bottle of water. “OK, OK, where was I?” he asked incredulously, while drinking some of the water. “Sen. Rubio laid out the right-wing vision for America. And oh, what was I saying? Rubio bent the truth last night.”

They've fabricated a "gotcha" moment that doesn't exist. Now if Rubio would have guzzled the water, shrieked like a pirate that he's going to take back the White House (yeARRRRRR!!!!) and then called our president "macaca," we'd have a real career-ender and the media wouldn't have to be scraping for petty material like this.

Fabricated what? This was no "gotcha" moment. They did not misquote some snippet of his response and run wild with it.

The dude bent over in the middle of his response. Not a career ender, but as a career politician he should known better and he was rightfully mocked for that clumsy rookie move.

Rubio will take his lumps and no one will remember this after a few days.

slowbek, the point of this thread is they're pathetically trying to make it a career ender.

Apparently you Limbaugh lemmings think feigning outrage and creating your own silly hysteria does not seem foolish and petty.

I'm sure all of you most certainly watched the full clip, in which Blitzer himself said "no one thinks this will be a career ender" and added that Rubio has "a huge future ahead of him."
