Jonathan Gruber’s new role in Washington, DC could be described by a recent hit song from Gotye. Now he’s just somebody that they used to know. It wasn’t always that way….
It was 5 April 2006. The Jolly, Old Brookings Institute gathered their Illuminati to discuss how they would save us all from our own, self-imposed inadequacies. The line-up went as follows:
Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution
Panel One: Restoring America’s Promise of Opportunity, Prosperity, and Growth
Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)
Director and Chairman of the Executive Committee, Citigroup Inc.
The Reverend Jim Wallis
Founder, Sojourners; Author, God’s Politics
Panel Two: Innovative Policy Ideas
Doctoral Candidate, Princeton University
Professor of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Robert P. Gwinn Professor of Economics, University of Chicago, Graduate School of Business
Senior Vice President, Center for American Progress
It amazes me how many of these people who shared that room with Barack Obama ended up wetting their whistles and perhaps dipping something else at the taxpayer expense after then-Senator Barack Obama was elected President in 2008. Oh, and you could have cut the smug in that room with a chainsaw. I would hate to imagine what it smelled like in there when the incestuous conjugation had been completed.
But all good things come to an end and it was definitely something Gruber did. He told the people the egregious truth. Here he explains why Mitt Romney really gave Massachusetts RomneyCare. As if Jonathan Gruber got his position at MIT by doing anything other than screwing people out of money on behalf of the totalitarian state. It’s why the [*&&*%^&$^%^##[email protected] &(*^&&*%^^%!]** studied economics in the first place.
I’ll give Bob Schieffer of CBS News credit. He at least had a sense of humor about the whole sordid Gruber Affair. You see he was surprised – dumbstruck*, he’ll have you know, by Gruber’s arrogance. He even thinks Gruber should give back the money he was paid to fertilize Obamacare past the CBO. He was killing it over at The Laugh Factory. Oh wait…we’re supposed to believe he actually meant what he said.
And President Golfbama? He didn’t mislead the American People! He was too busy breaking in the new pitching wedge. He hired Jonathan Gruber to handle those details you Morons!
People are amazed by Jonathan Gruber. They’re amazed he actually told the rubes they were being fleeced. It’s like Lady Macbeth and her stupid hand washing. Or Berkowitz and his parking tickets.*** No wonder they don’t admit they ever knew the guy. Yeesh! What good is hiring a reptile if he develops a stinking conscience?
*-And it’s a little tough being dumbstruck when you’re already pretty darn dumb!
** – I’m not sure what a [*&&*%^&$^%^##[email protected] &(*^&&*%^^%!] is exactly, but you never want to say it in front of the kids!
***- A traffic cop got aggressive and that’s how the authorities caught Son of Sam.
