VIDEO: Rubio bragged, "I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in." He's selling that house for $675K.


rubio water I'm you

A very thirsty Marco Rubio said this during his dry-mouthed response to President Obama's State of the Union speech:

"Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in. My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare. They’re workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills. They’re immigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty in countries where the government dominated the economy."

Sorry, Marco, but your extremely sincere efforts to appear extremely sincere (did anyone else catch the pasted-on smile at the very end of his extremely sincere attempt at public speaking?) have failed as miserably as your extremely awkward water bottle lunge.

Rubio is selling his humble neighborhood home and moving to that dreaded liberal cesspool, that Insider's Club of elitists, that so not his home-sweet-'hood (fanfare!)... Washington D.C.

oh noes

Via HuffPo (where there are photos of the working class home he's selling, including the swimming pool):

Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R) is trying to move his family out of state.

As first reported by the Daily Caller, the GOP's brightest star has listed his 2,649-square-foot West Miami home for $675,000 -- money he'll use to relocate his wife and young children to Washington, D.C., if it sells. [...]

If Rubio gets his asking price, he'll make a nice chunk of change on the 4 bedroom, 3-and-a-half bath pool pad: records show he and wife Jeanette bought the place for $550,000 in 2005.

So much for being one of the people.

Just when you thought Marco Rubio was the only unintentional attention-getter on State of the Union Night, along comes "Gunslinger Tim Ryan," the Democratic U.S. Representative for Ohio's 13th congressional district. Move over, Marco, our guy is cooler.

Pew! Pew! Take that, NRA!

but wait there's more

Via a pal of mine, Marco's Moment of Got Water? is immortalized as a GIF and has become the most memorable moment of his political career:

This morning, Stephanie Miller quipped that Rubio will need even more water as climate change does its thing.  She actually said it better, but you get the idea.
