I saw a tweet (re to Seth MacFarlane’s inane tweet about the Republicans and the Keystone pipeline) that pointed out that the only “stupid voters” for Obamacare were the Democrats who voted for it; not a single Republican did.
As a colleague pointed out to me, you can’t blame “stupid American voters” for Obamacare. Surveys show that if the American people had ever been allowed to vote directly on the issue, they would have voted it down. Of course, you could say they were “stupid at one remove” for voting in the people who voted for it, but by that point, how carefully the bill was worded would have been moot anyway.
Good point. the bill that became Obamacare was carefully crafted to elude the ire of American voters…and failed.
It failed so well that it took up the vast majority of the 2009-2010 Congress to pass with heavy arm-twisting and outright false promises made to secure bare-knuckle passage in the House. And spawned the Tea Party and a renewed Republican controlled House.
And these guys on the left are laughing to themselves that they pulled the wool over the eyes of the American people?
Who’s really the stupid ones here?
You have to remember — even the Democrat dolts who VOTED for it had not read it. There wasn’t time. The bill wasn’t really complete yet (they were expecting to “fix” some problematic language but then the midterms came along; after the Republican wave they HAD to force it through in their lame-duck session, because there would have been too many opposing votes when the next session started.
These idiot Democrat sheep meekly followed their Democrat shepherds to “Pass this historic legislation!!” (and even *then*, some of them had to be bribed for their votes — remember the “Cornhusker kickback” and the “Louisiana Purchase”?)
Not that I think this absolves them – I truly believe every single person who voted for it should be shot for treason. But then, I’m a savage.
Language? Hmm, how about Reggie with knee pads under the back stairs.
Brilliant. Damn do you hit home!
No update/edit. so new post. Chris, I just went back a few days and read about the FB excrement. I’d rather come here than there, because I ended up here on the NSFFB days anyway.
In a way Gruber is right with his “stupid American voter” remark. How many times have you heard someone say they are voting for for a candidate because of his looks or his youthfulness or his wife is hot to trot.
Wet dream of the day: Trey Gowdy as Speaker of the House.
I think Buddy the Elf said it best…”YOU SIT ON A THRONE OF LIES.”
A clue; Boehner needs one.
I really like your new perspective.
