I'm not Stupid---You're Stupid / Obama Snubs His Nose at the American People...Again
Dr. Gruber has been in some hot water lately, In case you haven't heard, he thinks that you---the American voter---is stupid. Specially, too stupid to understand the mechanics behind Obamacare. You know, those questions you asked about how this was going to work or how it was going to be funded but was ignored? Well, his response was simply priceless. You see, the MIT economics professor's solution to all those pesky questions the American Public had asked about Obamacare was simply and intentional to fib---"mislabel" it as he said. Yelp, Dr. Gruber said publically that the best way to get around the questions that the public had (and few courageous Congressmen and women) was to lie; to misstate and/or misled in order to get it passed. Then, as Ms. Pelosi infamously told the American Public, we could read it if we wanted to know what was in it.
To be fair, Dr. Gruber was speaking at a University of Pennsylvania panel discussion went he stated the healthcare had to written in a way to "exploit the stupidity of the American voter". He later appeared on several news programs to say he was "speaking off the cuff", however, apparently this wasn't the only time he publically remarked about the intelligence of the American voter. To say it once, maybe he was just letting his mouth get away from him. To say it twice? Well, maybe it's not the American voter who is the stupid one.
So what are to make of this? Well, certainly Dr. Gruber isn't the only one in Washington who thinks those of us in "fly over country" as they call the American Heartland, are stupid. After all, despite approval ratings of between 9% and 11% , we do keeping reelecting these buffoons back into office right? But that aside, the point is that the American People were right when we said there was something very wrong with law; especially one being ramrodded down our throats. We knew we were being lied to when we told we could keep our current healthcare if we wanted it or that there wouldn't be any fines or other penalties. Even the not-so-supreme Supreme Court said the law wasn't legal as written and on their own (and with questionable legal authority), change it into a tax instead in order to uphold its legality. Chalk up one for the American People.
Schieffer to Gruber: "If Obamacare is as bad as you say..."

Obama Snubs His Nose at the American People...Again.
In one of the few times where Obama has kept his word, Obama is preparing to grant amnesty to some 5 to 6 million individuals--mostly children of parents here illegally as well their parents under a plan called "deferred action" through executive order. This is part of a so-called "10 Point Plan" the President has been working o since before the election to bypass the House and Senate. In a recent CNN poll taken just after the midterm elections, some 40% of the respondents indicated they would not vote for candidates who supported amnesty while 19% said they supported the current Senate immigration reform bill. Essentially meaning that the American People want nothing to do with amnesty and that Obama held off in order to minimize damage to Democrats. As an aside, 45% of those polled thought Obama has already gone too far with his executive orders. That number will go much higher if he follows through with his promise of amnesty by executive order.
So, with a nod to Dr. Gruber, let's sum all this up in simple everyday terms. Congressional Democrats and Republicans are bickering like three year olds over a ball. Obama is acting like a determined spoiled brat who's been told "no" repeatedly by you, the parent. What do you do? Yeah...I'll be happy to cut the switch.
