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.
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?
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.
Brian Williams might bow to his master after delivering that statement.
Somebody send Williams this post ...
...with the YouTube of Hitlery gagging during a speech and gulping down a massive glass full of some unknown liquid appearing to be water but possibly vodka or gin.
...bow before your savior lately?
FUNBC...and the Andrea Mitchell you rode in on.
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.
You beat me by 2 minutes...
Not me. I think Ted Cruz might be the guy everyone thinks Marco Rubio is.
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.
What a verrrry serious reporter Williams is. My God. The left have simply gone mad.
Hat tip to Nachum.
I think Obama said he didn’t speak Austrian.
Stupidest president ever.
Rubio is a pro-amnesty fraud. I found it to be funny. Nothing good or bad.
Rubio as a conservative is the only joke.
I suppose they consider themselves lucky that our Glorious Emperor was not photographed EATING DOG MEAT/s
Obama ate dog. Rubio drank water. Who is the REAL American???;)
Thanks for posting that video of Hillary. If you had not posted it, I would never know about it. MSM would not touch it.
Yo Brian, We have plenty of footage of yall too.
We have footage of you yall calculating and conniving, and footage of you just being bone stupid.
Now is the time to highlight the gist of what Rubio said while mocking Williams and the like.
“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.
This garbage is ridiculous.
the msm is officially a whiny little bitch.
Like “I can see Russia from my house” Brian?
Why didn’t Williams spend this much time covering Benghazi?
in fact the msm is doing van jones’ work for him. tear rubio down because he’s a real threat, at least that’s how the libtard marxists see him.
The Rubio water thing will live on! (until they think up something else tomorrow)
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.
He won’t care. As he doesn’t care that his daughter gets naked for all to see. It’s a lost cause.
Pravda now has more legitimacy than the US msm.
Are you gonna send Williams your YouTube vid of Hitlery just as a reminder that it’s out there?
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.
Oh man, sorry. I laughed for like ten minutes at that.
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.
Lets hope that idiot never missteps! But he already has I never watch NBC for anything because of they’re Bias reporting!
And guess what I’m actually better off! I watch the bubble heads and get agitated and aggressive!
Brian Williams is a Slight imposter of Chris Matthews! Both of which are full of Buffalo Dung!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
Williams ought to worry more about the sticky white stuff on his chin.
We’re supposed to forget Benghazi but remember Rubio drinking from a glass of water.
The liberal press has lost all perspective.
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.
Obama doesn’t eat the Boogers, he just stares at them and imagines what he could get for them on Ebay.
“the superficial, purely visual moments”
Brian, are you describing television news, in its entirety?
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.
Make these media bullies feel our wrath, drop Comcast, they own NBC, and they are a mouthpiece of the socialist elites, Comcast’s management is reflective of MSNBC’s on-air personalities, it is a corrupt company, Comcast hates free enterprise, they are a monopoly!
