First Clint and his chair and now Marco and his water bottle. These republicans sure love their inanimate objects.
They are calling this "Watergate II", water -bottle-gate, "gulp- gate", you name it. It's the reach and sip seen around the world. First of all, what self respecting man drinks Poland Springs water? But I digress. Anyway, poor Marco had the dry throat and the heat anxiety thing going pretty strong.- What is it about following O that makes these republican stars wilt under pressure like Donovan McNabb in the 4th quarter?-I can't blame the poor guy, he has been carrying the future of the republican party on his shoulders of late. He is supposed to be the savior, the "voice of the Republican party". He is the Latino on a shining horse who will lead the old white men of the GOP into diversityland and the new America.
But a funny thing happened on the way to Pennsylvania Avenue, my man got thirsty.
Folks won't believe this, but I honestly feel for the guy. It was almost like he was set up to fail. I can't even dissect his speech like I want to because of this water break fiasco.
Remember the speech? In it Marco said that his neighbors were all just a bunch of working class stiffs.
"Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in. My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare. They’re workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills. They’re immigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty in countries where the government dominated the economy....”
Ahhhm, not so fast.
"Rubio is selling his humble neighborhood home and moving to that dreaded liberal cesspool, that Insider’s Club of elitists, that so not his home-sweet-’hood (fanfare!)… Washington D.C.
Via HuffPo (where there are photos of the working class home he’s selling, including the swimming pool):
Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R) is trying to move his family out of state.
As first reported by the Daily Caller, the GOP’s brightest star has listed his 2,649-square-foot West Miami home for $675,000 — money he’ll use to relocate his wife and young children to Washington, D.C., if it sells. [...]
If Rubio gets his asking price, he’ll
make a nice chunk of change on the 4 bedroom, 3-and-a-half bath pool pad: records show he and wife Jeanette bought the place for $550,000 in 2005.So much for being one of the people." [Source]
Have another swig Marco; no wonder your throat was dry.
