WATERGHAZI!

I really think it was the repetition of mindless right wing pap that gave him cotton mouth. Even if he had been fully hydrated, the speech was about as memorable as a phone book - the same old clichés. Big government bad. Obama secretly hates free enterprise. Rinse. Repeat.

re: #3 Kragar (Antichrist )

@BryanJFischer Libs advise GOP to get younger, hipper candidate. Then play clip of Rubio’s water-gate 200 times. http://hotair.com/archives/2013/02/14/cable-news-replayed-the-clip-of-rubio-sipping-water-more-than-200-times-yesterday/ …

Impossibly hilarious implication: Bryan Fischer thinks that Rubio is young and hip.

It was a completely forgettable speech, one that you could tell he didn’t have any real input in. My guess is he didn’t even see it until the day of.

Colbert’s edit of Rubio’s speech is the funniest one I’ve seen.

10 Hercules Grytpype-Thynneghazi  Thu, Feb 14, 2013 1:40:42pm

Colbert followed this up with a bit on the ABC captioning of the Spanish version of the speech. Apparently the transcription was made by a computer that tried to interpret Rubio’s Spanish as though it were English. At least the result was refreshingly free of clichés.

It could have been written on 11/7/12, with MadLibs style spaces left for insertion of sound bites relevant to the SOTU speech.

I forced myself to watch Morning Joe the day after just to see what he’d say. After making several lame excuses for Rubio and listening to the other pundits, he finally admitted that that it was the same speech the GOP has been giving since 1994.

re: #6 Targetpractice

On Morning Joe they said he has tons of seasoned advisers hovering around, but claimed he writes his own speeches. He also said “He’s not ready, just like President Obama wasn’t,” at which point Mika jumped in and said that at least Obama hit it out of the park with his first big speech, heh.

Shouldn’t there be a limit on how long a Senate vote goes for? Does it really take 45 minutes in 2012 to get 100 votes on the record?

Fischer: Obama Is Deliberately Destroying the Military by Allowing Women in Combat

As Fischer sees it, Obama “detests the military” because he views it as tool that “white colonial powers” use to oppress nations around the globe. In fact, Obama is so imbued with hatred of America’s fundamental “white supremacy [and] white racism,” Fischer believes, that he is “systematically going about destroying the military” by allowing women to serve in combat:

EmDrive: China’s radical new space drive

Scientists in China have built and tested a radical new space drive. Although the thrust it produces may not be enough to lift your mobile phone, it looks like it could radically change the satellite industry. Satellites are just the start: with superconducting components, this technology could generate the thrust to drive everything from deep space probes to flying cars. And it all started with a British engineer whose invention was ignored and ridiculed in his home country.

…………………….Propellant can account for as much as half the launch weight of a geostationary satellite. This means that, in principle, fitting one with an EmDrive rather than a conventional drive, could halve launch costs. Shawyer notes that EmDrives no more powerful than the Chinese one could keep the International Space Station in position without the need for costly refueling.

John Cornyn is attempting to claim that what is happening regarding the blocking of the Hagel confirmation vote is not a filibuster on the GOP’s part.

58 Targetpractice  Thu, Feb 14, 2013 2:10:53pm

re: #56 Gus

They’re trying to cover their asses by claiming that the vote was really one to confirm Hagel, meaning it’s not officially a filibuster. But because Reid took a procedural vote to keep the nomination on the floor, it officially goes in the record as a GOP filibuster. McCain, Graham, and Alexander, all of whom said earlier today they’d be willing to vote for cloture after the recess unless a “bombshell” showed up voted against cloture. As did McConnell, who bitched up a storm during the Bush years that ever nominee deserves an up-or-down vote.

re: #66 Robur

A proper lectern or podium to deliver the speech would have helped tremendously. The President had an advantage where he could have taken a sip of water while applause was going on in the Capitol, and probably had a glass of water somewhere within easy reach. Rubio had no such moments for pauses, but no one would have begrudged him a sip while speaking if the water bottle were similarly placed. Instead, the awkward move to the right, combined with the idea that he couldn’t break his gaze give the impression that he had never delivered a speech to a camera, and had only done so in front of an audience.
