The great thing is Gruber gives the opposition the way to personalize Obamacare. We heard Dems claim there were so many designers in the system, and of course behind closed doors, that they don’t want anyone responsible or tied to it. The beauty of group think is no one is accountable or blamed. But Gruber gave us the perfect opportunity.
The progressive Left lives and breathes to personalize their attack on an issue. (per Alinsky) And you know how important it is when San Fran Nan comes out deny even knowing who Gruber is. It was the one thing O-care lacked by its nature.
Nancy Pelosi at a House Speaker News Conference on November 5, 2009:
‘I don’t know if you have seen Jonathan Gruber of MIT’s analysis…’
“Well, you gave an interesting set of observations, but one that you skipped is Mr. Gruber’s comments were a year old, and he has backtracked from most of them. He’s not even advocating the position that he was at some conference. So I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill. With all due respect to your question, you have a person who wasn’t writing our bill, commenting on what was going on when we were writing our bill, who has withdrawn some of the statements that he made. So let’s put him aside.”
put no shove Gruber aside…off a cliff. “So I don’t know who he is.” And how will she deny all the money he was paid to be influential on it? What happened to that analysis she promoted? It’s the tax, stupid.
And how about a great shout out to that “hero, John Kerry”? This thing has more personalization on it than they would like. “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it” — and then no one is held responsible… away from the fog of accountability.
