Forget Rubio: These are the #CareerEnder moments that should have been

CNN nows says that its “Career-Ender?” chyron accompanying slow-motion video of Sen. Marco Rubio’s water sip was just a joke. If that’s the case, we wonder why the network has been hoarding that caliber of comedy gold for so long. Twitter has plenty of occasions when “career-ender” would have looked great on screen. Remember these classic career-killing moments?

    Hillary Clinton and others were certainly career enders for four Americans in Benghazi.

  • Peyton

    Being a liberal, a rino, or a member of the MSM should all be career enders.

  • Raye09

    So having a drink of water is a career ender, but Benghazi, Fast and furious, getting blowjobs in the Oval office, screwing child prostitutes and refusing to pay them, are all OK? but having a drink of water isn’t?
    What is this world coming to?

    #CareerEnder: Saying Jooooos control Congress. *cough*Hagel*cough*

    #CareerEnder: Staging callers to radio shows. *cough*Cutter & Wasserman Schultz*cough*

    #CareerEnder: Growing pot in your back yard. *cough*Frank*cough* *cough* *cough*

    #CareerEnder: Swinging money deals for favorable legislation. *cough*Pelosi & Clinton & Waters & ETC!*cough*

    #CareerEnder: REAL tax evasion. *cough*Rangel & Kerry*cough*

    #CareerEnder: Not reading legislation before rubber-stamping. *cough*Conyers*cough*

    #CareerEnder: Lying about a Presidential candidate’s taxes on the floor of the Senate. *cough*Reid*cough*

    #CareerEnder: Sending pictures of your twigs & berries over the internet. Weiner *DING!*

    #CareerEnder: $90,000 stuffed in a freezer. Jefferson *DING!*

    #CareerEnder: Funneling campaign money for personal use. Jackson Jr. *DING!*

    #CareerEnder: Funneling Federal relief money into his own pockets on the backs of “Chocolate City” residents. *cough*Nagin*cough*

    ….this is too easy. You might say it’s like wetting one’s whistle. Which is most certainly NOT a career ender.

    When you have to attack and continually blame the media for every single thing that goes wrong with the GOP #gameover

    • mike_in_kosovo

      Thinking that showing the hypocrisy of the MSM is “attacking” them. #lowinfolib

    • Slapweasel

      What “went wrong with the GOP” in this instance? #templatefail

    • Dwayne Jackson

      Would you care to give some examples? Didn’t think so.

    • Tim George

      rinodino, there is NO such thing as a Democrat in Name Only. It is fictitious like a unicorn or your brain.

    • LightSabre

      Thanks again, rino, for saving me the trouble of going to HuffPo or the New York Times to be amused by what typical, idiotic libs like you have to say.

    • lainer51

      When you have to slobber and droll and continually praise every single thing that libs do because you have no thoughts of your own # sheeple #gameover

      I did that when I bowled my first game at age 5. My score was a 7.

    • anonymouse

      And then making a politically incorrect slur against disabled children on Letterman afterwards. Should have had consequences but instead swept under the rug with the CORPSE-MAN and 57 states.

    Water: Hearing Obama talk about “fairness” makes me want to take a bath.

      Obama’s policies gave 310,000,000 Americans a bath

    Whoever ran the “Career Ender?” chyron in the first place on CNN, and all those in the media that are using this tiny, awkward, insignificant moment to destroy a GOP rising star.

    Sharpton- Tawana Brawley libels, Crown Heights riot/murder : Career enders, or resume enhancer?

    Hillary- Craig Livingston, White Water, Rose Law Firm, Vince Foster, Benghazi, marriage to Bill: Career enders or resume enhancers?

    Aww.., the list is just too long; Marion Barry, serial screw-up Teddy (has everyone forgotten that he was bounced from Harvard for cheating, or that Joe somehow snatched him out of the army? Wllie Smith rape case?), Alcee Hastings, Jesse Jackson…. ad infinitum

    Seriously, if all they have on Rubio is him drinking water, Dems must be really desperate.

  • poljunkie♪

    Anthony Weiner, tweeting his a photo of pee pee and then saying he was hacked…..a career ender…(for a few years anyway)

    I remember when that Lena Dunham ad ran, and it was pointed out that it was the same premise as an ad Putin ran. On the Youtube clip of that Putin ad it was said, months before the fact, that if any American tried to pull something like it, that would be a definite #CareerEnder. Not even close.

    A propagandist media goes a long way. A check on that was made last fall, and proved that Obama’s is at least as powerful and blatant as Putin’s. As long as it’s in place, there are no #CareerEnders on the left anymore. Having that (R) next to your name is the #CareerEnder.

    When the right finds a way around, through, or over this media, I’ll believe this country has a chance… Doubt that will happen easily or anytime soon, though.

    Gun running in Mexico, Libya and Syria should be a “career ender”

    It’s so refreshing to see the right wing parrots on top of such a huge story.

    Abandoning your gun running Ambassador to be Jihadi raped to death was only a #CareerEnder for Stevens… go figure.
