“Let me say it as simply as I can: Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”
Barack Obama, January 2009.
See him say it for yourself.
This is HUGE. It proves that Obamacare is premised on lies. And it proves more than that.
Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber:
“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass… Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”
Here’ that video again:
So how does it feel, Obama voters? How does it feel knowing that Obama counted on you being stupid and that you came through?
Over at The Hill Elise Viebeck characterizes it this way:
“The clip is generating significant attention in conservative media.”
No shit. The question is, why isn’t all of the media interested in this?
Answer? Because they are stupid. They are useful idiots.
Candy Crowley? VERY useful idiot:
Romney: Yeah, I — I certainly do. I certainly do. I — I think it’s interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack, he went in the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror. You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. It was not a spontaneous demonstration.
Obama: Please proceed.
Romney: Is that what you’re saying?
Obama: Please proceed, Governor.
Romney: I — I — I want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror.
Obama: Get the transcript.
Crowley: It — he did in fact, sir. So let me — let me call it an act of terrorism — (inaudible)
Obama: Can you say that a little louder, Candy? (Laughter, applause.)
Crowley: He did call it an act of terror. It did as well take — it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea of there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that.
Jeff Dunetz notes:
Indeed Romney was correct.The day after the terror attack in Benghazi, President Obama gave a Rose Garden Speech of 801 words. He mentioned the word terror once near the end of his speech but not in reference to the horrible attack.
During that brief statement, President Obama referred to Benghazi as; An attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi; this outrageous and shocking attack; attack; terrible act. Obama called the people who perpetuated the attack “the killers who attacked our people.” He did not call them terrorists.
Crowley rescued Obama and the lie that night and then CBS sat on the exposé. The result was that Mitt Romney was made to look foolish and both Crowley and CBS were accomplices in the malfeasance and quite possibly changed an election.
Obama counted on them being both dishonest and stupid and they came through.
Matt Lauer, another stupid Obama useful idiot:
Opposing the President’s policy is not a policy.
Yeah, Matt, it is when it’s all based on lies.
You Obama supporters- you can’t say you weren’t warned. We warned you repeatedly:
And, of course:
Whatever Obama says is a lie. The opposite is the truth.
You voted for Obama? You are stupid. They knew it. A lot of us knew it. And now you know that not only are you stupid, you get to know that your hero, your god, knows you’re stupid.
This video proves one more thing:
Obama could never have pulled this off without a docile, compliant and yes, stupid media.
