Like Americans who watch the Super Bowl just to see the commercials, I endured the President’s State of Delusion speech just to see the much-anticipated rebuttal given by Tea Party poster child, Marco Rubio.

Finally, conservatives have our answer to the overused but hard to defend cries of racism and bigotry.

Granted, Republicans have just appointed the first black southerner to serve in the Senate since 1881. But in the upside down world of politics, Senator Tim Scott doesn’t really count as an actual black senator – maybe two thirds, as spelled out in the Great Compromise of 1787 – because you see, Scott was appointed not elected. According to the liberal media, his appointment is still not enough to overcome Republicans’ “race problem.”

So here comes Rubio – the rising star, the savior of the Republican party and most notably, the lifeblood of the Tea Party – giving the rebuttal to Obama’s State of Delusion address. The POTUS just finished trying to convince Americans that we don’t have a spending problem, liberal policies won’t add to the deficit (that’s if you ignore the $1 trillion a year deficit under which we’re currently operating), and a $9 per hour job is the answer to all economic ills.

This rebuttal should be a slam dunk for Rubio.

Like most of my fellow conservative Americans, I sat on the edge of my seat – white knuckled, jaw clenched, waiting with anticipation to hear what the great Senator from Florida had to say. A Cuban-American raised out of poverty, living the American dream, and striving to make that dream come true for others through the advancement of conservative principles. The anticipation for his speech was palpable.

But then the unthinkable happened. Something so horrible, so disastrous, that conservatives across America watched within seconds the hopes of a 2016 presidential victory slip from our hands.

Rubio took a sip of water.

This horrifying moment sent waves across the blogosphere and lit up Twitter like a North Korean nuclear bomb test. But the scandal spreading across social media couldn’t hold a candle (or a Poland Spring water bottle for that matter) to the incredulous response by the cable news networks.

Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitas called it the “The sip of water laughed at world wide.”

Rachel Maddow instantly mocking his “big reach for the water glass.”

Chris Matthews who predictably blasted Rubio’s speech said of the water bottle, “I thought it was tinker toys.”

E.J. Dionne, one of the many Washington Post liberal columnists, delivered more of the same. “Poor Marco Rubio: It was the gulp that roared.”

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer absurdly asks, “So can a drink of water make or break a political career?”

Let’s help Wolf out, shall we?

Can admitting to eating dog meat break a political career?

Can smoking pot, but not inhaling break a political career?

Can smoking pot AND inhaling break a political career?

Can consuming 3,000 calorie meals while ordering the rest of America to layoff the soda and fries break a political career?

Our country’s economy is in the toilet, the average American shares nearly $50,000 in the national debt, North Korea is testing nuclear weapons, the Middle East is in chaos, and everywhere you look the policies and legislation driven by liberal ideology are wreaking disaster.

And yet, at the end of the day, what matters to the mainstream media is a lousy drink of water.

In all seriousness, let this be a simple but poignant lesson to my fellow conservatives:  the liberals in the main stream media and Washington see the writing on the wall. They know that their policies are hurting American families, and that the POTUS can only hide for so long before this American economic decline is pinned on him. So like snakes in the grass, the obedient media will lay low waiting to pounce on any conservative who dares to challenge their precious, progressive, poster child. It’s called the “Palinization” of conservatives. And it only happens when the left is very, very afraid of a candidate.

So when the liberal media goes ballistic over a simple sip of water, let that be a strong indication to conservatives, that we have ourselves a serious candidate.

Rubio 2016 – I’ll drink to that!


Kevin Jackson's hilarious take on Race-Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism!

Enjoy this excerpt from the book:

"The money in diversity is enormous, even bigger than former sportscaster turned political pundit turned sportscaster Keith Olbermann’s ego. Wouldn’t you like to be a “reverend” and father children out of wedlock without repercussions? If you study hard, this book will teach you how to have your non-profit organization pay your mistress and your child support – all at the same time. You must be so black that if you eat sushi, watch reruns of Dawson’s Creek and Friends, or enjoy the ballet, you will hang yourself."

    Excellent on point analysis. My statement to a friend was that if that’s all they’ve got, then they’re very scared of Rubio. Rubio who like you said comes from immigrant parents who worked their butt’s off to give him a shot to attend school and make something of himself. I’m one of those that are impressed with Rubio’s political acumen, his articulate and poised manner, and even more so with his parents who made true sacrifice for the sake of their children. I was slow to come on board the Rubio train, but I have been steadily impressed with him.

    • BS Flagger

      Jeff: We know Rubio will be THOROUGHLY vetted, should it come to that. What effect do you think the “natural born citizen” requirement will have on him? Regardless of the fact that the current occupier does not qualify, BY HIS OWN ADMISSION!

If the Lord God Himself came down from heaven to run for an office, ANY OFFICE, many Americans would find fault with Him as well. There is NO hope for us as a race, I’m afraid. Why can’t we look for the good in people, rather than spend so much time digging for the bad???

    The real question should be, did the water he drank belong to him, or should it have gone to a more deserving citizen. Did he drink more than his “fair share”? Did the Ministry of Propaganda report all of his misdeeds? Did he breath air that wasn’t fairly allocated to him by Comrade Obama. Alas, I think that when all is said and done, this drink of water may be only one of his horrific crimes!

With all that happened last night, with Obama and all his lies and c’mon his misdirection would have made Houdini proud, and with all the media coverage of his way less than mediocre verbal two step, they took exception to a drink of water? This is the “We are saving America” think tank? This is the cream of the Democrat’s crop? They are pathetic, and this is ridiculous. Our country is teetering on the brink of our worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and they came unglued over a drink of WATER? Personally, I think the drink of water was a breath of fresh air. Ladies and gentlemen, raise your glass, we have a HUMAN in Washington! I don’t know about YOU, but i am ecstatic.

  • Randy G.

    The left if going to do whatever they can to try and destroy anyone who might run against them in 2016. They are running so scared right now that they are blocking advertizement for the Feb. 16 state rallies on Facebook. Why should Facebook be blocking ads that are bought and paid for by people that want to get the word out about a rally against Obama. He is doing so much damage to this country that there will be nothing left if we can’t stop him someway in the near future. There will be so little left that we will have to start from scratch to rebuild and get our rights and freedom back..I say lets get things started as soon as possible to stop the destruction of our country now. I am not sure just yet who I want to vote for in 2016 but I pray that someone starts to really stand out and show they can take on the left and beat them at their own game…Lets all pray that happens very soon…

  • Carolyn

    Again, I HATE THE LIBERAL MEDIA!!! What, a man is not entitled to a drink of water after already giving one speech in Spanish, then in English?? Why are stupid people making such a big deal of the man taking a drink of water??? It has not changed my opinion at all. The man was entitled to a drink for Pete’s sake!!!!!! Is this called grasping at straws? YES!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/audrey.messer.56 Audrey Messer

    Truthfully a glass of water compared to “I did not sleep with that woman” is crazy, Obama had Clinton speak at his rally, and if possible, Clinton would be elected again if he could run again. It’s sad when the democrats have nothing more to say about a republican than he took a drink of water? It shows their stupidity, I could see if they said something about his politics, or his views on America and other world countries, or even his being a republican, yet they talk about water? Was the water, the most expensive out there? Was it, like I asked in another comment, southern mountain water (moonshine)? Was it toxic? Was it even imported? Okay, let me ask one final question, why are we discussing water drunk by a republican instead of money being spent and more debt being made by democratic president??

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mary-Barnes/1613178404 Mary Barnes

    I would like to know what is the big deal of him drinking water? Didn’t Obama the self appointed King or God, or Hitler or Stalin or Castro but most of all Dictator drink a drink of water during one of the debates. People can start a war over almost anything. Maybe it is Obama wants to run for a 3rd term and KNOWS Rubio could beat him. What is Obama going to do now put Rubio on his hit list. It is the number 1 book since it came out. Pretty bad when you don’t like what people are saying about you so you put out a hit list. Hes from Chicago and that is what the Mafia does

    Understand what motivates such as these … when a conservative gains credibility, that is a threat to the social and professional standing of these highly-educated idiots …

    … and is a threat to the mellow of those who hang on their every word.

    The driving force behind the Progressive rank-and-file is the desire to avoid having one’s mellow harshed about their choices in life.

    Principled criticism and economic consequence have a way of doing just that … so many in that rank-and-file seek to have the government paper over their mistakes with wealth redistribution … and join in with the highly-educated idiots above to discredit conservatives by any means necessary, no matter how intellectually dishonest.

    i have no issue with the water, and pointing it out is idiotic. What i, an admitted liberal, do have a problem with is the cynical stance of the GOP, thinking that what voters objected to in this last election was the packaging and not the content. Just sticking a hispanic man, mouthing the same platform unchanged from before election, will not convince us that you re suddenly the party that serves hispanics best, any more than putting Palin in, as a counter to Clinton, convinced us you were the party of women’s rights. Having the same trickle down greed coming from the mouth of a young hispanic man does not fool us into thinking this is the fresh new GOP, ready to adapt to the 21st century. The GOP does not need to change the messaging, it needs to adopt a new message.

    • http://www.facebook.com/robert.law.5439087 Robert Law

      The GOP plan is exactly what is needed for America, regardless of who gives the rebuttal. Their message does not need to change entirely…just be slightly edited. Unfortunately, it is all the liberals that think the cradle to grave society is what best fits the American culture. There is a reason why Capitalism has lasted so long…it actually works!

    I am hispanic, (fluent in spanish) AND a woman AND college educated. Triple threat for the libtards.. I came from nothing, joined the Navy and put myself through school, like Rubio, I have enormous college debt. Have never been on any form of public assistance and would eat dirt before I asked for a hand out, in this Obama’s economy of which an educated veteran such as myself cannot find employment, I may be eating dirt sooner than I think. I have little sympathy for people who make poor choices in life, have babies they cant afford, drop out of school etc. and expect someone more successful to pay for their way through life. Rubio has my vote if he were to run for POTUS.

    Just throwing a curve ball to all who keep hating on the “liberal media”. Answer this. If Information is a commodity in the free market why do “conservatives” keep complaining. If you don’t like the “liberal media” start your own media outlet to appeal to your base. After all free market works. The consumer is king in the free market.
