7:56 PM PT: So, yes, Marco Rubio proved you can manage to swallow just fine, but choke all the same.

7:57 PM PT: Look, it wasn't a total fail. At least he didn't piss his pants.

6. I don't think they prepared for him needing water.

It was probably sitting on a coffee table off screen. A coffee table (or nightstand like table) is far too low for one to reach without squatting or bending over. They should've had a podium or waist high table right in front of him or next to him with water in a glass.

Basically it comes down to him having dry mouth and basically being unable to speak and he was forced to go for the kiddy bottle of water.

7. Let’s All Watch Marco Rubio’s Panicked Drink Of Water In Extreme Slow Motion

http://deadspin.com/5983866/lets-all-watch-marco-rubios-panicked-drink-of-water-in-extreme-slow-motion

It was the swig heard 'round the world. Florida senator Marco Rubio, tasked with delivering the official Republican response to President Obama's State of the Union address, found himself parched and distant from the necessary tool to quench that burning fire. .....

This is a Deadspin Video, in which strange sports moments are slowed down to ridiculous speeds and matched with indie music. This video features "Danger Of The Water" by The Futureheads.

9. Great Tweets - #RubioSwig #sotu

JamesPoyser ‏@jamespoyser
"I don't always drink water, but when I do, I prefer to be awkward. Stay thirsty, my friends." Marco Rubio

Rex Huppke ‏@RexHuppke
On a positive note, at least Marco Rubio didn't get hungry during his speech. #GOPRebuttal

rolandsmartin ‏@rolandsmartin
Can you imagine how sick Sen Marco Rubio is right now? The #RubioSwig will be the only things folks talk about tomorrow.

Kevin Powell ‏@kevin_powell
I hope Saturday Night Live has a field day with the Marco Rubio stumble, gulp, and water grab. That speech was clumsy and terrible.

Newt Gingrich ‏@newtgingrich
Marco Rubio is doing an excellent job delivering a very powerful and compelling speech

Daily Kos ‏@dailykos
Marco Rubio missing out on great career giving vaguely motivational real estate seminars.

John Fugelsang ‏@JohnFugelsang
And now, Marco Rubio presents the 1st campaign ad for Hilary 2016. #sotu

12. Marco Rubio’s drinking problem

Marco Rubio’s drinking problem
http://www.politico.com/story/2013/02/marco-rubios-drinking-problem-87562.html

Here’s a look at what watchers had to say on Twitter:

Oh Lord, I am thirsty now. #gulpgate Rubio was thirsting for fame and got hot and bothered with it all tonight. #Gulp #SOTU2013— Donna Brazile (@donnabrazile) February 13, 2013

I blame climate change for Rubio’s unseasonal thirst.— Brian Beutler (@brianbeutler) February 13, 2013

Rubio - looking for a job as a bottled water spokesman, apparently.— Brad Woodhouse (@woodhouseb) February 13, 2013

Republicans. Sponsored by: water. Refreshing.— Marc Ambinder (@marcambinder) February 13, 2013

Now, if Rubio reached for a mojito that would have been awesome.— Jonah Goldberg (@JonahNRO) February 13, 2013

Rubio going the way of Jindal - just slightly more nervous and with a little bit more sweat.— Stephanie Cutter (@stefcutter) February 13, 2013

Jesus walked on water. Rubio drank it #saviors (ok, done)— Sam Stein (@samsteinhp) February 13, 2013

Marco Rubio’s Water Break Sparks Flood of Tweets
http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2013/02/12/marco-rubios-water-break-sparks-flood-of-tweets/

.... It was a small moment that could have bigger ripples. Time magazine recently featured Rubio on its cover with the coverline “The Republican Savior.” Certainly Rubio wanted to convey the image of being prepared, polished and ready for prime time.

A sampling of what some notable people were saying about Rubio and the President’s State of the Union Address on Twitter:

23. I feel the same.

When Brian Williams was giving the lead-in to the story last night I couldn't wait to see what it was that Rubio had done. When they showed it I was completely underwhelmed. He needed a sip of water and the bottle was a little far away. So what? I think Bobby Jindal walking towards the camera (and Chris Matthews muttering "Oh God.") back when he gave his rebuttal to Obama's SOTU address was a lot more noteworthy (and funny) for its awkwardness. This Rubio thing I don't get.

28. It sure was amateur hour. Here's the set, part of his problem



He was in a hot box of lights, sweating, with cottonmouth nearly stopping his speaking. If he had not reached or the water so awkwardly, it may have gone unnoticed, but only if he had been able to continue talking! The awkward water moment just shows how amateur their operation was. He wasn't prepared for the big time, and that is humorous if you are a Dem.

22. I can't do Photoshop but perhaps a pic of that cop macing Rubio as he drinks would be good.

There was a thread of that cop (I forgot his name) macing everything under the sun, might as well add Rubio taking a drink to the mix.

Thanks for the thread, Coyotl.

27. What's funny (imo) is how overexcited he is to be rehashing Romney's failed talking points.


And to add to that, nobody ever cares about the response to the president's State of the Union anyway.

Marco Rubio Says God Caused His State Of The Union Cottonmouth (VIDEO)
http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/02/16/marco-rubio-says-god-caused-his-state-of-the-union-cottonmouth-video/

The continuing saga of the Marco Rubio Water-Bottle-Gate has a new and compelling twist: according to Senator Rubio (R-Fla), it was all God’s fault.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Rubio assured us that he’s not the Republican Savior .... he has an explanation for the strange incident that quickly overtook the message of the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union address: God was reminding him that he’s human.

...God intervened at that important time to remind Rubio that he’s human. Because God has nothing better to do than swoop down and give Republicans a bizarre case of cotton-mouth. God cares so much about Republicans that he wants to make sure they stay humble. ....
