I had a fly on the wall for those meetings and that is my source for this story.
The first meeting with Obama and Gruber, according to my fly, began with the premise that Americans are stupid.
“It is not a farfetched idea,” President Obama said to Gruber during the first meeting, “that Americans are stupid, after-all, Barnum of Bailey fame thought the same thing, that there’s a fool born everyday, and that’s why there were those side shows at the circus where one could see giant ladies, midgets, two headed sheep, and sword and flame swallowers.”
The American public is gullible, the two elitists agreed.
And so on with the plan to sell Obamacare, the president and Gruber were simpatico.
That was easy, after all Gruber was from MIT, Obama from Harvard and we were in a period of time when liberal arrogance was being discussed openly, and for a conservative it was refreshing, because it was only a matter of time before misleading deceit and lies would be revealed, by the very arrogance of the liberal ego.
And so on four different videotaped occasions Jonathan Gruber revealed to the American public how they had been mislead on President Obama’s signature legislation called Obamacare and executed the premise on the basis that the administration thought the people were ‘stupid.’
And Gruber revealed all of this when Obama was in China this week.
Well, when the cat’s away those little liberal mice will play.
Did you ever see rats scurrying from a sinking ship, it’s rather funny and chaotic at the same time?
Nancy Pelosi, minority whip of the House, now doesn’t know Jonthan Gruber, but she is on video tape earlier lauding him as the architect of Obamacare.
It was she that said, “You have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” She was right about that, but that’s not the way it’s suppose to work.
When you are in the House as long as Pelosi, you forget who you know and who you don’t, even if you do, and who you lauded with achievement, and who you didn’t.
But she did get offended the other day when a reporter asked her if she thought she should step down from the leadership role. She implied the question was sexist and said it shouldn’t have been asked.
And so now we are left with a Gruberism, a euphemism that may catch on as Gruber’s comic book on the subject depicting the clever liberal arrogance revealed by the architect of Obama’s misleading, deceitful, mendacity.
When Obama returns from the Orient, I wonder if he will remember Gruber?
