Awesome photo: Benjamin Netanyahu and Marco Rubio bump water bottles in Israel

Heh. The water bottle goes global.

That’s one way (maybe the only way) for Marco Rubio to make sure his visit to Israel gets covered by the Water-gate-happy media. Bumping water bottles with Bibi: total “career-ender.”

More from the Israel leg of Rubio’s Middle East trip.

Rubio’s trip also included an Israel Defense Forces helicopter tour and a visit to an Iron Dome battery.

    What??? Israel allows women to carry guns… better take them off the US BFF list. /s

    • rogueco

      Unfortunately, they have no choice but to carry guns. since they refuse to urinate themselves or “passively resist” when confronted with danger.

        And have no assault whistles.

      • ozconservative

        And there is no such thing as a “safe zone” in Israel

        • harborsenior

          The Jew haters at MSNBC will hate this.

    Awesome, funny. Of course White House (liberals) have zero sense of humor, heads exploding today.

      I thought I could feel a disturbance in the Force.

    • Penny Robinson Fan Club

      Wanna see exploding leftard heads? Put a teabag in that water bottle!

    L’Chiam, Bibi and Marco! That’s “Bottoms up, from right to left..” #Hawkeye #AlanAlda XD LOL Jawamax 8<{D}

  • KansasGirl

    Daaaaamn, I’ll drink to that.

  • Patrick_Lasswell

    Rubio needs to make this a running gag because the press can not help themselves in covering it. Every time he speaks, he should have a different water bottle, and preferably multiple bottles in a single speech.

    For the grand slam, he should drink from a chalice like the one in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” and announce he chose wisely.

      Wouldn’t it be a hoot if PUR Water Company hired him as their spokesman? Or Arrowhead? Or Smart Water? Or any of the other water companies? LOL!

        Marco Rubio’s 2016 Presidential campaign will be funded solely by bottled water endorsement deals.

        • Canadian in USA

          At least his policies will hold water.

          • KansasGirl

            Absolutely…cause you know the msm won’t carry Rubio’s water, like they have for their “savior” O.

          • michael s

            the conservative media will carry Rubio’s water since he is your savior. since he’s a close second to Jesus according to a twitchy poster.

          • KansasGirl

            What conservative media?

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            no dear, it’s just a picture of a man doing his job. Notice no golf clubs?

          • dwsmokin

            Well then that would be one savior following another.

    • Mark Stephens

      Great idea, Patrick.

  • SJ’s Dad

    Wonder if CNN will replay THIS clip 155 times?

  • Liberals Needhelp

    Pretty darn funny. That’s an ad right there. What a nonsense issue. Although, next time, just have a nice glass of water on the table.
    I may not agree w/ everything Rubio stands for….but, I do admire he puts it out there..he isn’t afraid to make waves, good and bad. At least, he is saying something besides,
    ‘my dear friend across the aisle’…. ‘GOP needs a bigger tent’…….or anything Powell says.

  • HypocritesAmongsUs

    This is not Rubio’s first visit to Israel. It’s quite telling, when a senator serving for lesser time than the president gets to go to Israel more. Go Rubio.

  • Mapache

    Maybe Obama can shoot with Bibi when he goes to Israel….that would be a great photo-op….hope he wears his Mom jeans!

  • kssturgis62

    Who Paid for this trip? did we the taxpayers? If we did and this didnt’ come out of his own pocket, Congratulations Rubio.

    It is not 2016, it is 2013. We have 4 years of Obama. I think people better start Worrying about 2014 and what Obama is saying now and how he is setting it up for the Dems to Win the House and the Senate. This Sequestration has him rolling right now.

    If WE LOSE THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE you will not see 2016, and he will have his Dictatorship. Start Working on the Senate and get rid of the RINOS.

    Pushing this guy constantly down our throats, like with all the other RINOS not a good thing.

    • KansasGirl

      If O is willing to push our backs to the wall, so be it.

      • kssturgis62

        So Be it NOT – We are not the Same. Like I said Quit Worrying about 2016, We have to worry about Next Year, and with everyone’s heads in the clouds over this NON CONSERVATIVE LOVER OF KARL ROVE AND JOHN MCAMNESTY We are going to lose the House and the Senate. If he is up with Jeb Bush or as the POTUS nominee we will lose With Rubio also. Because there are So many of us that will not vote for this man either. I can’t believe people are falling for it. It is like Watching an Obama love Fest part 2, Obama is not qualified and Neither is Rubio. But hey WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE.

        • KansasGirl

          Back up, partner.
          I’m not endorsing anyone, and I’m certainly not focusing on 2016.
          Also, you’re kidding yourself if you can’t see that O is acting like a dictator now.
          That was my point about him backing us against a wall.
          I’m of the opinion that O will cross the line…which will be his day of reckoning.

          • flotsamjetsa

            oh so you’re the type longing for the days of GW Bush? So you see how well the boy wonder savior of the GOP is doing on his first trip to kiss up to Benjy? Enjoy

          • KansasGirl

            Thank you, I will enjoy.

          • kssturgis62

            I see the Dictator alright, and I think if we lose in 2014 USA is gone for sure. Congress has given up so much of their power to the Presidency they have already proven they are not needed. I see things to clearly, and this is one Man mr. rubio helping Obama achieve his goals. Look at his votes, and now pushing amnesty. Wow Marco what a guy.

    • michael s

      It doesn’t matter that the taxpayers are stiffed for this trip. because he’s entitled to taxpayer funded trips . unlike Pres Obama and we know why that is.

  • Jennifer Karolak

    So glad we have honest representation of USA to our dearest ally Israel! Thank you, Sen. Rubio!

    The caption to the picture at the PMO of Rubio and Bibi looks like it should read, ” so Marco, what’s your major?”

  • blynnd

    Thank you so much for posting these pics! LOVE UM! Good to see good men who love their respective countries. Proud of Rubio on many counts. And always proud of Netty.

  • Guest

    Bibi meets Rubio, an American whom he can trust not to stab him in the back.
    When Obama visits, Bibi will be wearing kevlar under his shirt.

    • flotsamjetsa

      still smoking those bath salts again? Rubio knows about as much as you about foreign affairs.

      • KansasGirl

        And O “knows about as much as you about foreign affairs”. Pfffffft.

        • 3seven77

          “O” knows less. That’s why he handed off foreign affairs to Shrillary.

  • mary kile

    lol, cute picture. Gotta love Rubio and Bibi

  • aliwilcox

    Bibi puts Rubio’s “water”gate to rest, and all Obama has is a slick as sn_t logo pronouncing his coming visit. Governing presented as theatre.

  • JesseTMims

    Rubio can never become president of the U.S.

    The accepted definition of “natural born citizen” has always been “those born in the US to parents who were citizens.”

    In other words, one must have been born on U.S. soil AND to TWO U.S. citizen parents.

    That was also the holding of the Supreme Court in Minor v. Happersett
    in 1875; as explained in the following quote from Attorney Leo Donofrio:

    …the Court in Minor did make a direct holding that Mrs. Minor was, in fact, a US citizen. The Court established her citizenship by definining the “class” of “natural-born citizens” as those born in the US to parents who were citizens. Then the Court included Virginia Minor in that class thereby deeming her to be a US citizen. And they did this by specifically avoiding the 14th Amendment and by specifically construing Article 2 Section 1.”

    In other words, the Court first defined “natural born citizen” as being “those born in the US to parents who were citizens;” and then, it used that definition to establish that Mrs. Minor was indeed a citizen of the U.S. That does not mean that every citizen is a natural born citizen. It only means that every natural born citizen is also a citizen.


    There is also a link to the original full text of Minor v Happersett there.

    As Donofrio points out, that holding by the Supreme Court is binding; meaning that the definition the Court used is th legal definition. However, that is not the only time before or since that SCOTUS has used that same definition of the term. See for direct quotes.

    As that source points out, “The Supreme Court of the United States has never applied the term ‘natural born citizen’ to any other category than ‘those born in the country of parents who are citizens thereof’.”

    Since THAT is true, it totally eliminates the possibility that a natural born citizen is simply “a citizen at birth.”

    Many people today confuse being a NBC with being, or becoming, a citizen. However, as important as the term NBC is in determining whether or not one meets the Constitutional requirements for the presidency, it is simply a descriptive term denoting a set of circumstances that MUST occur at the moment of birth in order TO meet those requirements. It is NOT a way of BECOMING a citizen; as one must already be legally eligible to BE a citizen according to U.S. Code before one can attain the status, by virtue of being born on U.S. soil and to to U.S. citizen parents, of being a NBC.

    NBC status is neither attained nor granted by any law legislated by Congress. It is something that OCCURS under the laws of nature; and, it can only occur at the moment of birth.

    Rubio is more presidential than the president.

    I can’t wait to see the side by side analysis of body language experts after Obama visits in a few weeks…
