Liberals really do believe they are smarter than everyone else on the planet, especially those dumb conservatives who cling to their guns and their bibles. The Gruber scandal illustrates in spades exactly how these elitists think. Note that Gruber can't remember anyone taking issue with his outrageous statements when he spoke to his like-minded colleagues. He's not the only arrogant liberal in the sandbox.
To refresh your memory on the scandal ---
Ph.D. Jonathan Gruber, an MIT economist, was the architect of Obamacare. Over a year ago he spoke in a series of venues where he talked about the "stupid" voters who don't understand economics and need to be deceived about what's in the plan. Here's just one quote from his scandalous blather:
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage and basically, you know, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically, that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass,”Wow! Think about that statement. Because Americans are so stupid, he said, they would never figure out the lies the administration was using to get their horrible package passed -- one that only now is being felt as Americans see their health insurance costs skyrocketing while they lose the ability to select their own doctors.
Gruber during the Madison-Avenue-style promotion of Obamacare masqueraded as an impartial adviser on Obamacare, but he was really on the HHS payroll and received millions in consulting fees to pull the wool over everyone's eyes. Wow! Talk about government corruption!
There's a good summary of the Gruber scandal here. And another article about the complicity of the liberal media in the scandal here.
Gruber's grovelling apology is nothing but Kabuki Theater to try to minimize the damage that the release of his statements caused. The Obama administration is rotten to the core and this short video shows how the rats run from a sinking ship.
