Rush Limbaugh: “One Debate And All Of A Sudden He's Become Robotic? It Doesn't Work That Way”

From the February 8 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show:

RUSH LIMBAUGH: Now, I don't have anything other than anecdotal. I have seen a little video tape of voters talking about Rubio. And I have gone to comments sections of websites and I haven't seen one voter talk about how Rubio was robotic. They've had other criticisms, and they've had other praise, but I haven't seen that “Rubio was robotic.” The media consensus, and by the way that's a cross section of every network that we have, at least one person on every network, “Rubio was robotic.” Now I watched debate, I never thought Rubio was robotic. I thought Rubio got stuck, had brain freezes. I've had them, it's rare, but I've had them. I've had them in the middle of Rush to excellence performances, and I've had them bad for two minutes. I had to remind myself where I was. It just happens to people. Robotic, its not that this is the only thing he knows to say. How do you -- how do you think this is robotic when we've got how many debates we've already had where everybody, everyone of these people, thought he was great? He was super. That guy was articulate, he was this, he was that. And now one debate and all of a sudden he's become robotic? It doesn't work that way. Particularly in the minds of people who vote.
