Rubio's thirst didn't dilute his political clout

The liberal media have gone wild because of Marco Rubio's sip of water during his rebuttal speech to the president's State of the Union address.

According to the pundits of low quality, this sip of water has now made Rubio ineligible to run for president in 2016 because he has lessened his political clout! Unbelievable!

Obama can stumble over his speeches while looking back and forth at his teleprompter and make long "Annnnnnds" and "thaaaats" while he cooks up more lies and broken promises, but that's OK! Unbelievable!

Rubio made more sense in his follow-up speech than the president did in his one-hour yawn-filled speech. All I heard was the blame-game and idealistic impractical promises. (Even Jesus "thirsted" on the Cross -- John 19:28). Does this make Him ineligible to be the Christ?)

The stealthy critics should take heed of their own shortcomings and seek ways to improve instead of spewing out defamations of the innocent.
