Rubio on water swig: ‘God has a funny way of reminding us we’re human’by George Bennett | February 13th, 2013
Admit it — unless you’re an Indiana politics junkie or fan of former OMB directors, you probably don’t have any particular visual recollection of Mitch Daniels‘ 2012 GOP response to the State of the Union.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, on the other hand, provided a memorable image Tuesday night when he gave the Republican response. In the midst of accusing President Barack Obama of laying out “false choices,” Rubio briefly ducked out of camera range to grab a water bottle and take a quick swig.
Rubio made light of the incident immediately afterward, sending out a picture of the Poland Springs water bottle on his Twitter account. Today, on ABC’s Good Morning America, Rubio hoisted a larger water bottle during a live interview with George Stephanopolos.
“I needed water – what am I going to do? You know, it happens. God has a funny way of reminding us we’re human,” Rubio said while smiling broadly.
