    Marco Rubio is just another Conservapussie® whack job. No serious game there.

    That awkward water sip trended on Twitter in like zero seconds flat. I literally LOL'd at that moment.

    You know, Republicans need to get some better "opticians" in their professional ranks. I know they have the money, but I think their return on investment in their big public moments have not been great -- the RNC in Tampa looked horrible compared to the DNC...Marco Rubio awkwardly chasing down a mini-bottle of water.

    I mean you gotta give it to him, he just gave a translated version of that speech a few minutes prior to the live broadcast, but ... don't you think the support staff would've gotten him some water in the interim? or maybe put that bottle at his feet?

    Apparently there are idiots who actually believe Obama when he says that his new spending he proposes won't increase the deficit - or that any spending was actually cut under his Administration:

    And yet, I've created far more jobs in either the US or Canada than you ever have. Then again, I can do math.

    And as for the pic? It's sad that age has done such a toll on your reading comprehension icon_wink.gif

    ROFL! Moving US jobs overseas = more jobs for people in the US. Interesting math.

    Too bad you don't actually understand my business... well, or business in general for that matter.

    So be that buffoon and laugh away, but know that the people who are laughing around you aren't laughing with you but at you. icon_lol.gif

    Heh - that was a weak response. Rather obvious? It's kind of telling that instead of trying to argue for the merits of the Obama's speech and policy initiatives, Democrats are falling over themselves trying to make fun of Marco Rubio going to grab a drink of water.

    Once again, I see that you are intellectually too inept to even bother defending your repeated personal attacks on me. But it's no wonder given how you repeatedly flagrantly and proudly display your ignorance on all things finance and business icon_wink.gif

    neither President Obama nor Senator Rubio gave us anything new. surprised the senator skated over both immigration and gun control. we def don't have the $$$ 4 the President's agenda.

    bottom line:
    expect many more Executive Orders.
    expect more stonewalling from the Republicans.

    Politicians are evil. Obama is the lesser of the evils, but still evil.

    I didn't watch the SOTU speech because I know it's mostly mushroom fertilizer (aka, bullshit).
