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

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:CarrotFarmer87, 2/14/2013 9:34:13 AM

“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

Comments:
Yes, we knew the media were biased. But when you see this, you realize just how bad it is.

Reminds me of when the Iraqi reporter threw his shoe at Bush and they play it over and over and over and over again.

Rubio can defuse this very easily by poking fun at himself. Carry a bottle of water with you everywhere you go for the next couple of weeks and take a swig right in the middle of your next CNN interview.

As if the level of discourse and intellectual weight of MSNBC et. al. had to be underscored. And the true village idiot - Biden (not to mention his boss) get´s a free pass.

It´s time Republicans start adopting Alinsky-like tactics of ridicule and stop taking the high road which will is leading nowhere... A few more Greg Gutfields would skewer these nitwits quite well.

Well, I for one am glad that the media has concentrated on what effects us the most, politicians drinking water. Never mind the hopeless unemployment figures. Never mind the abysmal state of foreign affairs. Never mind the staggering multi-trillion dollar debt that will have to be paid for by our children, grand children and great grand children. Never mind the drastic decline in public morality. Never mind the failing schools that annually cost more than all the other schools in the world. Never mind the gross corruption and incompetence in the Administration. Never mind our loss of preteige in the world. Marco Rubio took a sip of water on television for God´s sake!!! Oh the humanity!!!!

Like "mean girls" trying to marginalize a school rival, the media exploit every opportunity to freeze-frame a popular Republican in an awkward moment. For Gerry Ford, it was falling down. For Dan Quayle it was misspelling potato. For Sarah Palin it was writing on the palm of her hand. For Mitt Romney, it was the image of once transporting his dog in a cage affixed to the top of the family station wagon.

My only criticism of Rubio´s splendid text is that he slightly rushed it. In public speaking, less is more. Whereas we read quickly, we hear slowly. The ear welcomes fewer words, slowly paced and punctuated with pauses. As for the water, next time put a glass of it in plain sight at waist level. Reach for it deliberately, say "excuse me," pause and sip. All speakers do it at one time or another.

In every hyperventilating reaction by "conservative media" there is truth. Acute hatred for Senator Hagel, a fellow Republican and decorated war vet, and an unprecedented threat to veto a President´s nominee = an admission that he was right about Afghanistan and Iraq. Feigned indignation about "watergate" = an admission that Sugar Boy, emancipator of illegal guests, is not ready for primetime. We have two medias in this sad country: Marxist and Stupid.

On Laura Ingraham’s radio show on Thursday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer railed against President Barack Obama’s foreign policy gestures, specifically his referral Russia as a regional earlier this week. Krauthammer blamed it on the inexperienced advisers the president has surrounded himself with in his second term and his own worldview. “This points to the fact that Obama has surrounded himself in this term, in this kind of second-term arrogance, with midgets,” Krauthammer said. “There is nobody in the high command who had the stature of Bob Gates, for example, or even a Hillary Clinton

In November, the U.S. Postal Service reported it had a $5 billion loss for Fiscal Year 2013, its seventh consecutive year with loss. At the time, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe blamed Congress for the loss, citing an “inflexible business model.” “We’ve achieved some excellent results for the year in terms of innovations, revenue gains, and cost reductions, but without major legislative changes we cannot overcome the limitations of our inflexible business model,” Donahoe said. “Congress is moving forward with legislation that has the potential to give us greater flexibility and put us back on a firm financial footing

On Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” Monday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer unleashed a scathing critique of the Obama administration as more and more of the flaws of ObamaCare are brought to the forefront. Krauthammer explained that as we learn many promises of the laws promotion are being left unfulfilled, it is clear a “vast deception” was at play. “That is another truth emerging,” Krauthammer said. “I think what is happening here is not just a matter of what is affordable.

Brit Hume said Tuesday that California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s call for a fix to Obamacare is a sign of just how bad things have gotten for President Barack Obama and his administration. On Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File,” network senior political analyst Hume explained to host Megyn Kelly that Feinstein’s shift, after a million Californians lost their health coverage, indicates the worst is yet to come. Many more Americans are expected to have their health insurance policies canceled. “This is as bad a political disaster as I have ever seen,” Hume said.

The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine.
