#CPAC2013: Sen. Marco Rubio scores; Water bottles still causing buzz [photos]

Senator Rubio hit the stage at CPAC 2013 earlier today.

Of course, water bottles were all the rage.

Consensus was correct!

Still, there was another attraction: Senator Rubio himself.

Some key points from his wide-ranging speech:

Amen. You can watch his whole speech here:

And it ended with more water buzz.


And a warning:

Zing! It’s funny, because it’s true.

In case you missed it, Sen. Rand scored big as well earlier today.

    I love Marco Rubio and everything, but $25 for a water bottle?

      Good quality ones cost that much. Maybe it’s Made in America. :-)

        I guess so, at least it is going to a good cause.

          That’s right. I’m sure there getting some profit out of the sales. Gotta support!! I’m feeling real good about the way these guys seem to be moving Washington! I hope it’s really a change of the status quo!

      It’s really just a donation, and the water bottle is a way of saying, “Thank you for donating” without sending an annoying email.

        I figured as much.

    What??!! I ordered a water bottle a long time ago and have yet to receive it. Get it in the mail.

    yeah guys, don’t buy into the stupid MSM line that people who like Rand are automatically against Rubio or vica versa. They are both awesome dudes who would both make great presidents.

      Yep…8 years of Rand followed by 8 years of Rubio, and maybe with 8 years of Ben Carson in there somewhere. It’ll take at least that long to undo all of the damage of 8 years of Obama.
