(Mission Impossible TV Theme): “Good morning Mr. Gruber. Your mission, should you decide/choose to accept it is to lie your ass off about ObamaCare’s costs and to make sure the CBO gives us a favorable rating no matter what… As always, should you or any of your team be caught or have their lies revealed; the Ministry of Truth will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self destruct in 5/10 seconds. Good luck Jonathan.”
MSNBC: Part of the problem with the Jonathan Gruber “stupid” story is that it’s a shiny object for the political world to stare at for a while. It offers more heat than light. It’s a bouncing ball for political insiders to chase after, despite its relative insignificance.
Yeah, lying to your face is relatively insignificant to most people.
That’s how Liberals roll though. They lie, cheat, steal and manipulate you until the get what THEY want and when someone calls them on the carpet for it, they just blow you off because you’re just as meaningless to them.
You are a means to an end, that’s all.
ABC,NBC, and other have totally ignored it. It was too insignificant for them.
Speaking of Nancy Pelosi, she was asked this week about Gruber’s comments. “I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill,” she insisted. (Townhall)
And while it’s nearly impossible to slow down a snowball of spin while it’s still picking up speed, now would be an excellent time for everyone to pause, take a deep breath, and appreciate the degree to which this story isn’t quite what it appears to be. (MSNBC)
Must Like the “snowball of spin” on Benghazi just before the 2012 election! 🙂 But gee whiz they sure got a lot of mileage out of their own spin. Remember, “If you like your Doctor….” 🙂
And if that doesn’t get you, they’ll just come back childishly with “well he worked on RomneyCare…” like that F*CKING matters that you “transparently” lied for partisan means to an end.
“Their reaction [to the Gruber story] shows that for all the talk of ‘governing,’ the incoming GOP Congress is going to treat the next two years like one long episode of the Rush Limbaugh show. The most urgent question will be not whether they can make some kind of positive change, or even whether they can make progress on their particular policy goals. The question is whether they can score points, win the morning, get the administration on the defensive. For that, you don’t have to get anything done; every day is a new opportunity to express your outrage, which is an end in itself.”
So it’s YOUR Fault! You’re the Partisan and this just proves it!! It’s Not them! They are the victim in this “relative insignificance” and they don’t intend to impede The Republican Congress and then blame them for “getting nothing done” at all.
…but it’s the law’s opponents that have spent the last several years misleading the public, creating baseless fears, and exploiting public confusion in order to help sabotage the American system for craven, partisan reasons.
Boo Hoo, stop with the partisanship, it hurts our feelings.
It’s Your Fault! You’re too partisan!
It’s all FOX News’ fault!
STUART VARNEY: What kind of play in the establishment media did the Gruber event get, Tim?
TIM GRAHAM: Almost nothing. This not just something they’ve been ignoring on ABC, CBS, and NBC. This is something you can’t find in your New York Times. This is something you can’t find in the pages of The Washington Post. This is something you’re going to have trouble finding on the Associated Press. They are all going to say this is some kind of right-wing story. Even Mika Brzezinski this morning on MSNBC said if this was on the other foot, let’s say this was the Iraq war, and an architect of the Iraq war said “Boy, we played the American people for suckers,” I think we all know what a massive story that would be.
VARNEY: I am absolutely astonished. And insult from one of the architects of Obamacare. And elitist insult to we the people. Both ignored. Gloss over. Learn that it is perceived as untrustworthy. Nothing changes.
GRAHAM: It does not change. And the challenge for the new Republican majority is “How can we force this Obama-loving media to cover our issues?” (NB)
So shut up about it, and lets get back to “governing”, aka Rule by Presidential Fiat and “compromise”, you do as you’re told; Then everything will be fine. 🙂
Here’s me being “partisan” again…:)
