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.
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
