"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

Sen. Marco Rubio Responds to State of the Union with Fox and Friends

Tuesday night (2-12-13), Florida Senator Marco Rubio delivered the GOP rebuttal to President Obama’s State of the Union address.

At one point during his remarks, Rubio grabbed a bottle of water – a move that’s garnered much attention online.

Wednesday on Fox and Friends, Rubio offered a simple explanation – “My mouth got dry.”

“You know when you give a speech, you have a podium and the water is right there, but when you don’t, you start looking around and [thinking] ‘Where am I going to get the water from’ […] I figured I was better off taking that water and taking the hit for it then being unable to pronounce my word at the end of it,” he told Steve Doocy.

Rubio also took on some of the proposals outlined in President Obama’s address – see what he had to say below.
