Analysis: Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Tuesday rejected Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber’s claim that he made disparaging remarks about the intelligence of American voters in order to make himself look smarter.
Obviously another lie to cover a lie from the arrogant M.I.T. professor who, apparently, does not know truthfulness – it’s just not in him.
Voters were not the ones that approved Obamacare – ever. It was Congress that never read the law and the Democrat Party that controlled Congress. Without one Republican vote, Democrats passed this Marxist monstrosity now destroying the economy – costing millions of jobs – driving medical workers to other fields while killing babies and old people for “the greater good of the collective.”
Gruber spent hours in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee apologizing for and explaining away his various comments caught on video, including when he said Obamacare was able to pass because of the “stupidity of the American voter.”
Hey stupid, American voters never voted on Obamacare – Democrats in Congress did that – you know them, the slack-jawed fools that paid you.
Gruber said a few times that he shouldn’t have spoken about politician matters at all, since he’s not an expert. But Gowdy said Gruber routinely spoke about politics, and dismissed that answer. “Is that the best you can come up with?” he said.
Gruber said throughout the day that he was sorry, but Gowdy said it looked like Gruber was only sorry because his comments were caught on video.
“Professor Gruber, let me just say what it looks like from this vantage point,” he said. “You thought that they were really pithy and really funny, until the video showed up.”
This is the core of hubris defined by Webster as a great, exaggerated or foolish amount of pride. This is also the foundation of academia – pricing for which demands exaggerated pride to justify. We have M.I.T. graduates in Tulsa. Some are worthless alcoholics. Some claim credibility in fields they never studied in their expensive past. Some are brilliant in their field.
Life clue: A person is most rightly judged over time by the quality of their ideas, accomplishments, demonstrated honor and courage. If M.I.T. Professor Jonathan Gruber has honor it apparently doesn’t include truthfulness.
Conservatives have also been taken to task over these Obamacare hearings by talk radio legend Mark Levin.
Levin said he refuses to “make heroes out of these members of Congress who asked great questions, who made great arguments — and then they are actually going to vote to fund this crap!”
“They hold a hearing to show further how outrageous this law is, how abusive its architect was. And they can’t even persuade themselves to step up to the plate and do something about it,” he added.
Levin offered GOP some free advice.
“Republicans need to run on law and order, national security and securing the border,” Levin said. “They will win the heart and soul of the Democrat party. They will win Pennsylvania, they will win Ohio, they will win Michigan and states they thought they couldn’t win.”
