That’s quite a working class neighborhood you have there, Senator
During his rebuttal to the State of the Union address the other night, in addition to responding to a different SOTU address than the rest of us watched and having the Most Awkward Drink of Water Ever Ever, Marco Rubio talked about living “in the same working class neighborhood” he grew up in.
Our friends at Estately.com who are, apparently, Eclectablog & LOLGOP fans, sent along a link to Senator Rubio’s real estate posting on their site for the house he lives in. His house is for sale and the sales price is a whopping $675,000. It’s a nice house with a swimming pool and everything. But, at a sales price of over two-thirds of a million dollars, it’s clear that Rubio’s neighborhood is hardly “working class”, at least not any longer.
Yet, here’s what “the future of the Republican Party” had to say on Tuesday night:
Mr. President, I still live in the same working class neighborhood I grew up in. My neighbors aren’t millionaires. They’re retirees who depend on Social Security and Medicare. They’re workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning and go to work to pay the bills. They’re immigrants, who came here because they were stuck in poverty in countries where the government dominated the economy. The tax increases and the deficit spending you propose will hurt middle class families. It will cost them their raises. It will cost them their benefits. It may even cost some of them their jobs.
They may not be millionaires but they sure aren’t “working class” if Sen. Rubio’s house is any indication.
If you look through the images, you’ll see Sen. Rubio’s dog photobomb one of them:
And, wait, is that a bottle of Poland Springs water?! Why, yes it is!
At the end of the day, I really don’t give a damn what kind of house Marco Rubio lives in. I am fully aware that most members of Congress are very wealthy. That’s just how our system seems to work. But, please, Senator Rubio, do not lie to us, especially not when it’s so easily disprovable.
No wonder your throat was so parched the other night. Just like when your friend Rep. Paul Ryan couldn’t quench his thirst during his debate with Vice President Joe Biden, it seems to be a clear indication that you’re lying to the American people. After all, a dry mouth is one of the top signs that someone is telling a lie.
Look for any indication that the speaker has a dry mouth, a common side effect of lying. This can include lip licking, frequent swallowing or repetitious small sips of a beverage.
Mmm hmm. No surprise there at all.
