Skip to comments.CNN Absurdly Asks If Rubio's Sip of Water Was 'Career-Ender'

<> On Wednesday's The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer absurdly wondered if Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) pausing his State of the Union response for a drink of water would "break" his career. The CNN chyron flashed "Career-ender?"
"So can a drink of water make or break a political career?" Blitzer asked. "A U.S. Senator, possible presidential candidate. We're going to find out, whether he likes it or not." [Video below the break. Audio here.]
F&F a career ender for obama or anyone in his junta? Nope.
Rubio takes a sip of water. Career ender! Career ender!
Biden always looks like he took a dump while on TV, is his career over? Unfortunately no..the dummy still is VP..Rubio drank a glass of water, good heavens, a man was THIRSTY I’ll alert the media
The MSM is nothing but leftist propaganda these days, nothing else.
There is no way that this kind of biased “reporting” has not reached the point of just rubbing it in our faces to show us that they can. They are feeling the full flush of their power now.
People in the MSM with an IQ below 75, playing to people even dumber, such is the state of the country.
Dem senator: illegal contributions, criminal illegal alien (redundant, I know) employee, sex tourism for underage girls = not a story or a career ending moment.
Or I could post a image...
The gesture was awkward. It showed poor planning and set up by his team.
For preaching to the choir, not a problem.
As a first exposure to folks who have never heard of him, a problem.
Hey idiot Dems, he was drinking water!!! Your only problem is he refused your kool-aid.
Well it wasn’t kool-aid so......I’m good with that!!
Which one is the career ender?
The media is going to “Palinize” any viable (R) candidate for POTUS while giving the empty suit a free pass on everything, including being AWOL on Benghazi, which should have ended his chances at re-election but the media covered his ass and his utter incompetence.
Oh, and they’re big on Style over Substance - never mind that Rubio said more in 5 minutes than Obama said in over an hour.
The media is going to be dismissive of any sense he made and hyperventilate over Rubio taking a sip of water, which automatically makes him unelectable.
As long as you smile, lie, bite your lower lip, point your finger at the camera when making a rehearsed denial, say stupid things like you have campaigned in 57 States, etc...the media is going to give you a free pass as long as you are a Dem.
If a Republican makes the slightest gaffe, it’s a “career ender”
The media became emboldened after their blatant cheerleading for Obama in 2008 while committing character assassination of Sarah Palin, so why would they stop now?
“...They are feeling the full flush of their power now...”
OK, folks, flush twice. Now is NOT the time to save water.
I just noticed that Rubio has very large ears. They don’t stick out, unfortunately.
Obama snorts coke, went to the mans country bathhouse, and was raised by a nest of communists, and that’s cool. Rubio needed a sip of water, and his career is over?
Rubio is the new target. I think he may have some very unpleasant surprises in store for the LSM.
Well that same MSM was terribly worried about Joe the Plumber’s trade license and the DNA of Palin’s Down Syndrome child.
Baraq’s mysterious life history? Not so much.....
Rubio drinks water but Blitzer drink’s Obama’s Kool Aid.
Hey Wolf. Remember what the Kool Aid of Jonestown did to those who partook. Down the hatch, you putz!
Yes, the hesitant "should I or shouldn't I" was a little goofy looking. It will soon be forgotten.
Yet if this is the biggest critique of Rubio's speech that libs can come up with, I dare think they're worried.
I mean, really, this crap is scraping the bottom.
Another smear job from the Communist News Network. F7ck you, Wolf.
Crazy talk from crazy people - go figure.
Too bad the GOP doesn't realize we are in all out warfare with the global left.
Doubling down on that house cleaner I see.
So then these two careers should have ended also?
Nah, taking a sip of water is not as serious as publishing a computer generated birth certificate or making $100,000 in one year in the commodities market in the first year with no prior experience.
Palin accused of being an accessory to murder....game over
Rubio drinks water...game over
Water is wet...game over
The sun is hot...game over
Life is hard....game over
Paul Muad’Dib is the Kwisatz Haderach....game over
That was exactly the argument I was making four years ago, when the GOP did nothing while the media was on its bloody wilding rampage of Palin, blowing up the most idiotic controversies and distractions out of nothingness to drag her down. I warned that if this wasn’t pushed back, it would be the new playbook the Dem-media-complex would apply to destroy ALL viable Republicans coming down the pike. But nope, the GOP leaders not only ignored this, but pretty much joined in with the trashing of Palin. The stupid GOP helped legitimize this new paradigm, and now they are going to be pummelled by it. I’m almost inclined to say they are getting their just desserts.
.... If I was Rubio (Which I obviously am not) .... I would mock the media and actually make a drink of water from a bottle .... my trade mark.
He wasn't afraid to deviate from his script if it helped him to accomplish his goal.
If he needed the sip of water to continue, he should take it.
Would they have been happier if he dehydrated and passed out on camera?
The media created this baby baraq. They will not destroy him.
If getting a drink of water is a career ender for anyone then we’re the most superficial people on earth. I’d rather have a guy take a drink of water than be a crack-and-pot-head like Obama. Give me a break!
Did’nt you get the memo? It is a career ender only if you are a republican. If you are a democrat, having sex with under age prostitutes is no biggie.
All the Republicans should hold a press conference and just sip water.
So very true.. Did four Americans die (Benghazi) because narcissistic and selfish Rubio (Obama) was preoccupied with his glass of water (re-election)?
The media has one purpose, promoting communism. Nothing else.
PRay for America
That is because the battle is not between Republicans and Democrats, its between Progressive Marxists and Free Americans.
The GOPe IS the same team as the Democraps.
This is not a football game to capture the House or Senate, it is a battle for the survival of the Nation.
And the rightious are loosing.
.... Yup .... that's how it's done .... it's time to start working together as a team.
....Could you imagine the free publicity and press response LOL We need to start using things to our advantage instead of recoiling back into the shadows every time there's a bad press report.
“.... If I was Rubio (Which I obviously am not) .... I would mock the media and actually make a drink of water from a bottle .... my trade mark.”
A terrific idea.
Would they have been happier if he dehydrated and passed out on camera?
57 states, corpseman, “stand up, Chuck,” “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” “what difference does it make,” running gay prostitutes from your apartment, leaving a woman to drown in your car, being in the Klan, having sex with underage pages, and these are Dem leaders... but Dan Quayle misspelled potato, and Marco Rubio sipped water, making them unfit for office. The corrupt media will turn the sip into the gaffe of the century, and there is not ONE Republican in Congress who has the spine to stand up and call them out.
Liberals are much like infants - easily amused.
I think “Drink Water, not MSM Koolaid” would be a good campaign slogan.
