This sip

Sen. Marco Rubio is being treated unfairly and harshly by the mainstream media for taking a sip of water during his televised speech following President Barack Obama this past week.

It is very pathetic when mainstream media puts their focus time and attention on this minute detail instead of the important message trying to be conveyed.

A dry-mouth moment, a drinking problem, Watergate, clumsy water moment are just a few of the comments saturating on our airwaves instead of the real problems that face our nation.

Time to wake up, America, put partisan views aside and work together for a better future in America.

Please do not waste our time any further with talk about this crazy drink of water! Enough! Remember, a man much greater than all of us, being crucified, also needed a sip of water.

God bless us all.
