In the wake of a mini-scandal in which Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber committed another Kinsley gaffe, he went on friendly MSNBC yesterday and did a non-apology apology, saying he regretted speaking off the cuff, but not a word of regret about being accomplice to an economy-destroying series of lies.
This is sort of like his previous caught-on-video “speak-o” regarding the question of subsidies (which is going before the Supreme Court) where he claims to have just misspoken that one time, and then of course immediately after that, the fates conspired to reveal a second video where he made the same “speak-o.” Oops.
(By the way, if Obamacare goes down in flames because of Gruber’s “speak-o”s, here is the man who needs his own ticker-tape parade.)
And now, because Nemesis is a harsh goddess, immediately after saying he just “spoke off the cuff” about how Obamacare was passed by fooling the CBO and by lying to the American people, a second video has now surfaced where Gruber says once again that they screwed around with the language of Obamacare because “American voters are too stupid the understand the difference.”
Tempt Fate, and Fate will give in to temptation and bonk you on the head with a two-by-four.
I’ll say this: we need more people like Gruber around Washington, because they’re too stupid to keep their mouths shut about how Washington is screwing us over. Instead they brag about it.
More Grubers, please! The “most transparent administration in history” turns out to be exactly that. Not by design, but because of the arrogance and hubris of people who just can’t stop talking.
