Oh, if only Todd Akin of Richard Mourdock had just a wee bit of Sen. Marco Rubio, they would have never gotten in trouble when rape and abortion questions came up in their respective campaigns.
Sen. Rubio conducted an interview with GQ magazine and the interviewer, Michael Hainey, asks a load of seemingly pedestrian questions. But then, out of nowhere, Mr. Hainey asks this amazing question:
How old do you think the earth is?
Whiskey? Tango? Foxtrot?
Really, where did that question come out of? Was it being saved if Mr. Akin got by the rape/abortion question?
Seriously, here is the question and Sen. Rubio's very good response:
GQ: How old do you think the Earth is?
Marco Rubio: I'm not a scientist, man. I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think that's a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States. I think the age of the universe has zero to do with how our economy is going to grow. I'm not a scientist. I don't think I'm qualified to answer a question like that. At the end of the day, I think there are multiple theories out there on how the universe was created and I think this is a country where people should have the opportunity to teach them all. I think parents should be able to teach their kids what their faith says, what science says. Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. It's one of the great mysteries.
This is brilliant!
First, don't let Obamawhore media hack trick you. It is obvious that this is a trick question. So, Sen. Rubio starts with a cool dude response:
I'm not a scientist, man.
Exactly. Sen. Rubio is not a scientist. Nor is he, as he goes on to explain, a theologian. In reality, the way he answers the question is to bring up more questions. Question that Obamawhore media hack did not ask. I think that Sen. Rubio left him flustered.
Now, if Mr. Hainey did his homework, he would know that Sen. Rubio is a Roman Catholic. Most even very devout Roman Catholics do not believe that the earth was created in seven, 24 hour day and is about 6,000 years old. The easiest way to explain what Roman Catholics believe is exactly what Sen. Rubio said.
It;'s one of the great mysteries.
That is what most Roman Catholics believe.
So why does this Obamawhore media hack ask such a question?
Because without a doubt, this tool really thought that he would trip up this rising Republican star.
But little did this hack know that Sen. Rubio is ready for this kind of crap. And he answered it beyond appropriately.
Riddle me this, folks.
Would our current occupier of the White House been asked a question like, oh I don't know. Let me pull this out of my hat.
Would the Dear Leader, President Obama, ever be asked this.
Do you believe in Black liberation theology?
Would that be deemed an unfair question?
Well, yes my friends. Yes it would.
Because how dare anyone ask our Dear Leader, President Obama, if sitting in the pews of Trinity Church in the South side of Chicago and listening to the "Rev" Jeremiah Wright drone on about the subject for 20 frickin years, he believed in the main tenet of what he preached?
Yet somehow, Sen. Marco Rubio is supposed to answer a question the greatest minds ever have not been able to answer with absolute certitude.
No, he does not and he did but did not directly spout off something stupid.
My friends, this is how to not give the Obamawhore Media Complex their jollies.
Republicans need to read this interview to see when trapped with a gotcha question, do what Sen. Rubio did.
Turn it around and make said hack look as foolish as can be for asking such a question.
