The Media's missing Gruber adjective:

He doesn’t think of doc­trines as pri­mar­ily “true” or “false,” but as “aca­d­e­mic” or “prac­ti­cal,” “out­worn” or “con­tem­po­rary,” “con­ven­tional” or “ruth­less.” Jar­gon, not argu­ment, is your best ally

C.S. Lewis: The Screw­tape let­ters #1

Now that Jonathan Gru­ber has bro­ken through the media fire­wall (in large part thanks to Jake Tap­per who insists on act­ing like a reporter even when democ­rats are in power) our friends in the MSM have plenty of adjec­tives to describe what he is saying.

The favorite by far seems to be “stu­pid” not a day goes by when some­one in the media talks about how stu­pid it is for him to have said these things, par­tic­u­larly on camera.

How­ever in that wave of adjec­tives used to describe Pro­fes­sor Gru­ber in gen­eral and his words con­cern­ing the pass­ing and imple­men­ta­tion of Oba­macare , there is one that we have not seen deployed, one that given his state­ment would be the first words out of peo­ple mouth.

The miss­ing words? “Liar” and “False”

Nobody wants to deal with that ques­tion for one sim­ple rea­son, if Dr. Gru­ber is telling the truth (and he is) than a whole lot of Democ­rats and their media enablers were lying from the start.

Plus you’ll note that Dr. Gru­ber repeat­edly spoke in front of audi­ences who were, as a rule friendly to Oba­macare, for years with­out being chal­lenged on his veracity.

So expect more of the stu­pid cho­rus and antic­i­pate more Uni­ver­si­ties, you know those places where ideas are sup­pos­edly freely exchanged, pulling them down.

I’m sure there is a valid aca­d­e­mic rea­son for this and as soon as the media thinks one up they’ll give it.

There’s not a lot of money is say­ing uncom­fort­able truths, so I’d really appre­ci­ate it if you con­sid­ered hit­ting DaTipJar

If course if you can do both, I’m fine with that too.

Con­sider Sub­scrib­ing to sup­port our lineup of John Ruberry (Marathon Pun­dit) on Sun­day Pat Austin (And so it goes in Shreve­port) on Mon­day Tim Imholt on Tues­day, AP Dil­lon (Lady Liberty1885) Thurs­days, Pas­tor George Kelly Fri­days, Steve Eggle­ston on Sat­ur­days with Baldilocks (Tue & Sat) and Fausta (Wed & Fri) of (Fausta Blog) twice a week.

He doesn’t think of doctrines as primarily “true” or “false,” but as “academic” or “practical,” “outworn” or “contemporary,” “conventional” or “ruthless.” Jargon, not argument, is your best ally

C.S. Lewis:  The Screwtape letters #1

Now that Jonathan Gruber has broken through the media firewall (in large part thanks to Jake Tapper who insists on acting like a reporter even when democrats are in power) our friends in the MSM have plenty of adjectives to describe what he is saying.

The favorite by far seems to be “stupid” not a day goes by when someone in the media talks about how stupid it is for him to have said these things, particularly on camera.

However in that wave of adjectives used to describe Professor Gruber in general and his words concerning the passing and implementation of Obamacare , there is one that we have not seen deployed, one that given his statement would be the first words out of people mouth.

The missing words?  “Liar” and “False”

Nobody wants to deal with that question for one simple reason, if Dr. Gruber is telling the truth (and he is) than a whole lot of Democrats and their media enablers were lying from the start.

Plus you’ll note that Dr. Gruber repeatedly spoke in front of audiences who were,  as a rule friendly to Obamacare, for years without being challenged on his veracity.

So expect more of the stupid chorus and anticipate more Universities, you know those places where ideas are supposedly freely exchanged, pulling them down.

I’m sure there is a valid academic reason for this and as soon as the media thinks one up they’ll give it.

There’s not a lot of money is saying uncomfortable truths, so I’d really appreciate it if you considered hitting DaTipJar
