There are many legitimate criticisms of Marco Rubio, but the idea that he is wooden or robotic is kind of an insane one. He had a brain fart on national TV at the absolute worst time. That is definitely true. But no candidate in the field – or in recent Republican memory – is more authentic on television than Rubio, and the seven full debates prior to his scuffle with Christie prove it.
Nonetheless, after the dust has settled from New Hampshire, it’s good to see Rubio rolling up his sleeves and getting back to work. Rubio should probably expect a lot of questions about what happened to him on Saturday night, and earlier today he gave a pretty awesome answer.
As I said earlier today, I think he’s going to be fine.
