The liberal reaction to Senator Marco Rubio’s drink of water during his response to the State of the Union address is significant in understanding why people who voted for President Obama vote for candidates like Obama.
The mainstream media reported that Rubio’s drink of water was a display of nervousness, equating that with weakness. They contrast his performance to that of Obama’s confidence, equating that with strength.
From a psychological perspective, Rubio’s nervousness would be an indication that his speech was important to him. It shows that he cared and he didn’t want to make a mistake. Contrast this with President Obama’s speech. He was—as he typically is—overconfident. Research has demonstrated that overconfidence is not associated with competence. In fact, people who overestimate their abilities are less competent than people who realistically evaluate their skills. Overconfidence is narcissistic. In a leader it is dangerous.
Americans need to ask themselves why they would want to willingly give their freedom to someone who is overconfident, narcissistic, and less competent than someone who genuinely cares about his country and isn’t afraid to show it. Not only should Marco Rubio’s drink of water not be a ‘career-ender’ as the mainstream media would like everyone to believe, it should be a sign of authenticity and sincerity that Americans should embrace and value in the representatives we elect to serve us.
