Marco Rubio, the Great Hispanic Hope of the Republican Party, was chosen to deliver the response to Obama`s State of the Union speech. This is an honor equivalent to a superstar athlete selected to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated just a few days before a championship game.
Bobby Jindal`s presidential aspirations were blown away after his amateurish and clownish response to an Obama State of the Union address.
It`s impossible to compete with the pomp and circumstance of a president speaking before a joint session of Congress, especially if the president is an eloquent speaker.
Rubio looked like a schoolboy delivering a speech for a cable access TV program; unfortunately his speech was seen by millions.
Nobody remembers the substance of Rubio`s speech, but we can`t forget the " water bottle" moment.
Rubio lunged for a water bottle offscreen, way offscreen, like a dozen yards away. He made a terrifyingly intimate moment of eye contact with the audience, as if he had just been caught relieving himself. The former presidential hopeful took a quick sip from the tiny bottle, and then put it back.
Rubio is an embarrassment to the Republican Party, Hispanics and to human beings in general. I`m not suggesting that Rubio fall on his own sword, but I hope he realizes that his political career is over.
