    Stern related because Howie thinks his fans are morons too.

    Gruber: Team Obama, Obamacare "architect".

    Anyone surprised?

    How in the world is this not a gigantic news story? The guy flat out admits with great glee how they carefully crafted a lie to fool the stupid American voter to ram it though the bill and legal process.

    I flipped over to guy with a constitutional bent talk show yesterday when Jay Thomas was a repeat. Can't remember his name, but Jay Thomas gets the use of his studio when he's in Louisiana I think, so I figured I'd listen to see what he's about. They were discussing this. This guy, if he tried this snow job in front of congress when sworn, or prepared someone else to do so, could be guilty of perjury or suborning perjury/contempt of congress. If it's not a big story then it's a mainstream media coverup. I'm sure Fox was all over it, and they're mainstream, but that's only reaching people who are probably already against it mostly. The truth is, probably 80% of Americans don't know anything about this stuff and don't even listen to this sort of news. So they'll get away with it.

    They pack federal courts in DC, with fellow thinkers/lackeys, where this would be tried, so the odds of this guy getting prosecuted any time soon are slight.

    The guy basically bragged about their ability to just lie to the American people. And sadder, millions of idiots won't care because they happen to agree with his motivation. Banana Republic time.

    It has always made the news when such sweeping legislation was based on a lie. They will keep lying if you do not call them on it. This guy fits definition of a traitor to the American republic. He would have been shot or hung in a different time.

    Of course not, but where do you start to disassemble the public relations industry(aka propaganda)? We're surrounded by it 24x7.

    Remember the Bush administration lied to Congress on the costs of the Medicare Prescription Drug Act of 2003. The largest expansion of public welfare system since the 60's.

    Truly Banana Republic. If this was Bush, it would be 24/7 comedy central MSNBC jack off time.

    Oh, and how bad do you want to punch that gruber clown?

    While I agree this is bullshit

    Where was the outrage at the various lies used to invade Iraqi?

    See that selective outrage is the root of the issue and if we had a viable three party system stuff like this doesn't get swept under the rug

    Now Dems will blow this off and R's scream
    Few years ago D's scream and R's blow it off

    It's a pattern and they both know they can get away with it

    Gruber should be fired from MIT and charged with contempt of Congress.

    None of this will happen.

    As much as the left wants this to go down the memory hole, there was international agreement that Saddam had WMD. Bush gave Saddam multiple warnings and went to the UN and Congress to get approval before Iraq was invaded.

    You are not making sense.

    If the people have to be lied to for something to pass, maybe it should not have been done.

    The problem with your argument is Clinton said the same thing in 1999 that Bush repeated. You act on intelligence that you have.
