Not all non-conservative media journalists are working to assist Democrats in their frantic damage control now that their epic contempt for the democratic process, transparency, truth, and the American public has been exposed by the videotaped crowing of paid manipulator Jonathan Gruber.
When junior Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy (D) did his part by following the current game plan and attempting to dismiss Gruber as a footnote by tweeting…
“It’s sad to me that good political journalists are spending so much time on these irrelevant comments by this guy Gruber”
…CNN anchor Jake Tapper shot back in a tweet of his own,
“@ChrisMurphyCT respectfully, it’s sad to me that some politicians would claim the comments are irrelevant”
Tapper was using the device of ironic parallel construction, but it’s more than sad, it is horrifying. An insider who was crucial to the drafting of Obamacare admits that the Administration’s objective was to mislead the Congressional Budget Office and deceive “stupid voters,” and now the party that paid him $400,000 is covering up with a series of rationalizations, denials and lies. This is the fourth of the defenses apparently being emailed to all loyal Obamacare defenders from the high command.
First we have the rationalization: “Everybody does this with bills..it’s no big deal.”
Second is the brazen lie, or the Jumbo: “We were completely transparent!”
Third is the totalitarian mantra, “Hey, it was the only way, and it was worth it!” (The ends justify the means.)
The Fourth: airbrushing history, the Nancy Pelosi amnesia: “Who is this guy?”
The proof of Senator Murphy’s complicity is the Clintonian “this guy, Gruber, ” echoing “that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” Gruber had been lavishly praised by both Harry Reid on the floor of the Senate and Pelosi: Murphy knows damn well who “that guy” is, and why his revelations remove all semblance of trustworthiness from his party and its leaders…unless they can trick those stupid voters one more time!!
One journalist from the mainstream media, at least, is on to them.
