Somebody call Al Gore.

Sen. Marco Rubio's official website has been down for nearly an entire day, and the St. Petersburg Times thinks President Barack Obama is to blame.

Obama asked last night that people call all of their legislators to ask them to find a compromise on all this debt-ceiling drama, and Rubio's site went down shortly thereafter.

As possible evidence that Republicans aren't interested in compromise in the debt-ceiling talks, the Times says Sen. Bill Nelson's website didn't go down, "though loading it this morning took a while."

Even though Rubio also called out President Obama on the debt talks, the president's website is doing just fine.

According to the Atlantic, Obama may also be to blame for stealing the interwebs from House Speaker Boehner's website, as well as those belonging to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Here's photographic evidence of Rubio's website being devoid of life:

President Obama, tear down that firewall!
