If I tell someone that YOU lied, it would be true, right? It would have to be, or else, why would I say such a thing? Now, if people who knew you didn't think you'd lie, I'd have a harder time convincing them, wouldn't I. So ask yourself, did this guy really "spill the beans", or does he have an ulterior motive for saying that, knowing that a great many people would believe him, because they ALREADY have no trust?
If you want to con someone, you play on their hopes and fears. In this case, many folks were already afraid they'd been lied to, so the audience was ripe. But why wait 6 years to tell all? Because he didn't see a way to profit from it before now. He's too smart to let something "slip", so this was deliberate and so was the timing. A narcissist like Gruber didn't say anything out of having a guilty conscience, so there was another motive and one that profits him.
Maybe there's some truth to what he says and maybe there isn't, but a good clue he gave is - that he blamed stupid voters. So, accepting what he says as true - means that anyone who voted at all - is stupid. I know better, because I'M not stupid, so I have grave doubts about what he's said.
the interesting thing about this whole issue is the fact that that Gruber really didn't publicize his remarks widely. They were made in front a like minded audience.
The press didn't research or dig up those comments by Gruber. They were dug up by a lowly investment advisor who unearthed multiple damaging comments by Gruber.
It's funny watching the administration back paddle to play off Gruber as an outsider, an unimportant consultant etc. especially after they used Grubers analysis in multiple Administration puff pieces praising Obamacare.
I guess Gruber doesn't care since he already cashed those ZeroCare consulting checks for almost 400 grand.
I just read Obama's reaction...."I just heard about this" from the press of course.
Insert (benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS scandal, VA scandal etc.). That poor dear, if he isn't lying (like that would ever happen) I hope Obama doesn't cancel his newspaper subscription.
Without that Obama wouldn't know jack shit about anything. Heh.
And the Tweets about it are pretty funny too.
"Obama: I did not have Health Care relations with that man Johnathan Gruber". (my favorite).
"Better than Comedy Central, if Gruber did not work on the law what was the 400 K for?"
What is your favorite tweet on the subject?
