Silly Season Begins: Rubio Watergulp
Scandal Shows The Media’s Dwindling
Appreciation for Substance

Mediaite, by Joe Concha

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/13/2013 8:47:53 PM

Marco Rubio delivered the GOP response to President Obama’s State of the Union last night. Did he talk about the contracting economy, rising unemployment, immigration reform, spiraling debt, and what we can do about it? Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. And Yes. But thanks to a unique moment of having to take a (gasp) sip of water while publicly speaking for a long stretch of time, the only thing talking heads are talking about today is Rubio “watering down the Republican message.” Get it? Should the Rubio water story been broached? Of course.

Comments:
Thank you Mr. Concha! It is refreshing that someone called out the disgraceful behavior of those in the media. You know this is how those in the media behave when they are threatened by someone, but it sure is refreshing that they were called out by other than those from Fox, Newsbusters or other conservative sites.

No way does Barack Obama outdo Ronald Reagan as a speaker. Reagan had empathy and a quality of sweetness; Obama lectures, scolds and delivers an unpleasant anger.

And Cnn said this could end Rubio´s career; can they really be considered a serious news organization? Give me a break. Rubio had substance in his speech; he did not lie, and he is a hero in every way. Go Rubio.

I didn´t watch either one because I no longer trust any politician, especially the fraud, phony lying grifter in the White House. I detest him and his party. They are traitors. Not one of them was available when the consulate was attacked and the deaths of those brave men were not even mentioned in the SOTU address. The Dems are gleefully destroying the U.S. and the only thing the media can focus on is that Rubio needed some water. A pox on all their houses!

I think this is just a move to distract from the message (again). If someone has an important message, especially if that person has a conservative message, then let the distraction maneuvers begin. It´s like sticking your fingers in your ears and singing La, La La I can´t hear you. Just more childishness.

What’s wrong with some people (in this case, “journalists” being alleged to be people)?!?! Senator Marco Rubio was obviously sweating profusely in that combination studio/sauna at which he gave the excellently-thought-out response to BHO’s SOTU cavalcade of preposterous claims and empty promises.

My only quibble with the article is the effort to equate it to the 57 States gaffe by Obama. That was never pushed by the big media but by individual observers. It is the difference between a real grass roots observation and organized opinion making. The 57 states gaffe is more substantial than needing a sip of water after speaking for a while. This just indicates that is Rubio is human. This reminds us that no conservative is ever perfect enough to hold high office and no liberal is ever depraved or traitorous enough to be disqualified.

#9 has it right. The way to distract from a brilliant speech is not to refute its ideas; the way to distract is to talk about something else. The (Alinskyite) way to destroy a leading opposition figure is not to refute his ideas; the way to destroy him is to trivialize him. Talking about nothing but a gulp of water is a brilliant Obama, excuse me, MSM strategy.

#13 Great line.

If I were Rubio, I would take on the press by using sarcasm and charisma. The old "iron fist in a velvet glove" approach. The American people love a fearless fighter. This is what Reagan did so effectively.

Comparing Obama to Reagan as a speaker is easy. Can anuone quote one line from any of Obama´s speeches, expect for " They didn´t built that." His speeches are all a blur of lies with no memorable content.

The press attempted to trivialize Sarah Palin for writing on the palm of her hand, Dan Quayle for misspelling potato, and Mitt Romney for having carried his dog in a cage atop the family station wagon. The press act like "mean girls" who attempt to marginalize a school rival. Fortunately for Rubio, four years is much too long to run with a silly joke. If I were his consultant, however, I would advise him to slow down. In public speaking, less is more. We see quickly, but we hear slowly. The ear welcomes a slower pace punctuated by pauses. That is my only criticism of his night: delivering a splendid text in a rushed fashion.

@#15 The 57 state remark that Obama made
was not a Gaffe. It was a cold calculated statement aimed at the muslim world

Obama was not referring to the United states
He was referring to the 57 States of the Islamic Conference
It is equivalent to the UN for muslim countries

#26 - This morning FNC reported that Rubio´s campaign is offering Rubio water bottles at $20-$25 each.

Yesterday, I mentioned that the local CBS affiliate was claiming that Rubio had "disgraced" himself, and I couldn´t figure out what the hell they were talking about, since there wasn´t a single disgraceful line in Rubio´s excellent response to Obama´s gaseous oratory. So -- the big deal is that he had to take a sip of water? Looks like a deliberate attempt to, er, pigeon-drop all over Rubio´s speech, and direct the public´s attention away from it.

#26 has the right idea. Marco is going to be interviewed a lot from now on, so he should make a point of having a water bottle and taking a sip in every interview, which will trivialize the MSM right back.

#22 I hope someone on the Rubio staff reads your suggestion for him to slow down when he´s speaking. His content is great: he just needs to give listeners time to absorb what he is saying. The good thing, though, is that Marco is enthusiastic about what he is saying, which tells me he is willing to fight and refuses the be rolled over the way some of his GOP colleagues are allowing Obama and the Dems to do.

It´s time to turn these guys off, take the initiative to set the agenda rather than allow morons with ever-diminishing audiences continue doing it to us. Fox News has gone wobbly, and the real unused weapon is entertainment programming. Time to create a "conservative" production company, like "Silver Screen Partners #X" and go to it. Create careers for conservative writers, artists and others in entertainment. Cheaper than big money campaigns for losers, and it may make someone money!

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
