NBC's Williams Predicts Rubio's Water Sip 'Just Might Live On Forever'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 02/14/2013 8:57:41 PM PST by chessplayer

On Wednesday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams proclaimed that Florida Senator Marco Rubio taking a sip of water during his response to the State of the Union was "the televised moment from last night that just might live on forever." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Williams expounded: "Well, it's one of the cruelest aspects of politics in the television age. No matter how well-crafted the content, no matter how thoughtful a person you are, it's the television moments, the superficial, purely visual moments that are often remembered forever instead. And that will certainly be the case with Florida Senator Marco Rubio's GOP response last night."

The leftwing media will try to make sure it does, meanwhile the left can say anything at all and not be called on it

The funny thing is, actually Rubio is now getting support from people who previously rejected him.

:D

"...Brian Williams proclaimed that...was "the televised moment from last night that just might live on forever."

In as much as that was the night of the SOTU address, that doesn't really say a whole lot for Baraqi's speech, now does it?

More people will know who he is.

No reason on God’s good earth that taking the drink of water cannot be viewed as a quirky positive, an example of unscripted spontaneity.

These reporters are so evil they will have half the dunces thinking there is something wrong with taking a sip of water.

Could Brian Williams possibly be any more of a pathetic Obot drama queen? He is so silly it defies belief.

They have already taken it too far, and will generate sympathy for him.

Yet the media will bury numerous gaffes by Obama such as “57 States” and “Corpsman” and other idiotic words out of Obama’s mouth.

But a drink of water?

Well then, he’s not fit to serve office.

Right you are. The media judges conservatives different than liberals. So conservatives need to be extra careful. It's not right, but it's a fact.

Rubio is a pro-amnesty fraud. I found it to be funny. Nothing good or bad.

Rubio as a conservative is the only joke.

“Williams expounded ... it’s the television moments, the superficial, purely visual moments that are often remembered forever instead.”

It won’t be forgotten as long as we have cast-iron, ideologically hide-bound, blow-dried/hair-sprayed, cookie-cut, lefty Nimrods like Williams and the rest of his herd: the MSM, now known as the agitprop organ of the Democratic party, “expounding” on the earth-shaking political significance of (drumroll, please):
A Republican taking a drink of water during a long speech.

Marco Rubio Markets Water Bottles for Reclaim America Pac

That was fast. Marco Rubio took heat for his “career ender” of drinking water at his State of the Union response, but now has fired up some Rubio water bottles for his Reclaim America Pac.

Reclaim_WaterBottle_403x403

The rapid mouth-breathers in the left-wing media can take a cool drink of water now. The Rubio bottles are available at Reclaim America Pac. This seems like a great response to a laughable controversy.

Meanwhile Barak Obama could pick and eat a booger at one of his daily campaign speeches and the media would fawn over the genius of it all and that they bet it tasted just right...he just needed a little nutrition...working so hard and all transforming America....into a socialist Utopia

Oh come on, just because the guy has an (R) behind his name doesn’t mean it wasn’t funny and awkward, and if it was Obummer FR would explode with merciless mocking.

Not that it matters because Rubio handled it expertly the next day.

It’s already working. Rubio is now the main joke on late night talk shows. He is effectively being turned into a buffoon. That sip of water may very well turn out to be the end of his career.

I didn’t watch the SOTU address but from what I have read about it it was the same old stuff we always get from the Dear Leader. Michael Barone has a good column about it, not finding any serious policy ideas in it but just a series of shout-outs to favored groups such as teachers’ unions, “greens,” and trial lawyers.

Rubio sips Water once.

Obama picks his nose and plays with the Booger more than once.

Which is the most embarrassing Political story? According to same people who LOVE Obama, it’s Rubio sipping water.

Again I say, It’s not the News Reports, it’s Who Reports the News.

I made fun of my 99% libs at work when they were talking about this. I said he had to be stark raving mad to drink water. I went on about the now perceived lunacy of water drinkers. I think they realized it was pretty stupid. Sure was fun though.
