A little perspective on Rubio's sip of water

Thomas Lifson
You want a cringe-inducing gaffe involving a sip? How about this incident of Obama's, now consigned to the memory hole?

In their haste to denigrate Senator Marco Rubio over his sip of water during the State of the Union response, progressive media figures are descending to an adolescent level, in a faux scandal being referred to aa "Watergate," with a large dollop of irony. Meanwhile, nobody seems to remember a truly cringe-inducing gaffe by our commander in chief involving a sip.

The contrast in treatment of Democrat and Republican figures could not be greater.
