Those loose lips of Jonathan Gruber...

111414-liar-gruberA few weeks age, Jonathan Gruber was a swinging dick.

Hotshot MIT Economics professor,  Progressive darling, technical consultant for the Obama Administration during the crafting of Obamacare... 

But his fortunes have turned rather drastically as video after video has surfaced featuring Gruber bragging about how the Obama Administration managed to sneak through the President's landmark piece of legislation, Obamacare. 

111414-liar-liarWe already know that the President and his willing accomplices in the Democrat legislative caucus lied through  teeth during their push to sell this atrocity on the American people (the whole "it will be cheaper and better and you'll keep your doctor and plan" stuff... You know, the reason we all went along with this toxic shit in the first place). During the cover up phase of the deception, we were again lied to; our brilliant yet ever blindsided chief executive copping to unintentional misspeaking or some other such bullshit. And with the help of a slavishly compliant media, this whole nightmare slowly drifted away... Lost in an ever freshening sea of controversy and crisis to never again be spoken of...  

But then these videos of Jonathan Gruber floated to the surface (aided by the diligent work of one Rich Weinstein, an everyday Joe Sixpack driven to madness after realizing Lord Barrack had lied to us for years about Obamacare, making it his life's work to see this bill stricken from the books).

The first clip, from 2013, came from a talk he gave at Penn State. In the clip (which the Mainstream Media seems to be ignoring...), Gruber praises the lack of transparency in Washington, which aided in crafting the necessary misdirection and out right bullshitting needed to convince the "stupid" American people into going along with this scheme. 


 

Sweet of him, right? 

 

In his defense of this original statement, Gruber took to regional PBS shows and MSNBC on Monday, claiming he had made a poor choice of words in his off the cuff "thankful praise" of the stupidity of the American people (more on that in a moment) and that the true deceivers of the American people were those scumbag Republicans who said such awful (and as it would turn out accurate) things about the Legislative gift from God.

But then a second video emerged, this time from a speech given in 2012 at the University of Rhode Island, doubling down on his claims that the bill was only passed because of the stupidity of the American people. And then another... Three videos total (and counting, as I guess this nitwit went on a victory lap, rubbing everyone's noses in shit) have emerged... all of them damning... 

Three videos saying roughly the same thing sort of make his whole "off the cuff speaking" excuse a bit tough to swallow, don't they; the statements seeming more crafted and thought out now than spontaneous.   

Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire!

Politicians lie. They all do, and we all know it. 

But this lie to sell the Affordable Care Act to the American people... The one that by Grubers own admission had to be carefully orchestrated by the Administration and their sinister minions to shoehorn this awful piece of legislation into the American fabric... This is a particularly insidious sort of fabrication...

It's one thing to lie about getting a blow job or trading guns for hostages... But to go this intricate into crafting a lie (both in the salesmanship and in the nuanced language of the law itself) tells me that this law was created 111414-liar-hurtknowing it would have to be sold through deception to the American people, hardly a way free society should be operating. 

 And don't think for one second he was only speaking to the Red States with his views on their intellect... 

He was speaking about all of us, Left and Right. 

They knew none of us would support the law as it actually exists... With the cancelled policies, shortened work hours, raised deductibles and chaos and turmoil surrounding this monstrosity... Not a one.
