    It absolutely has a lot to do about what we are discussing. It shows that as a population we are pretty goddamn stupid.

    Personally, I have no problem with right to work legislation and allowing a worker to opt out of union membership if they choose to. Perhaps if unions hadn't simply become financing arms of the state and federal Democrat parties, and concentrated solely on workplace issues and worker protection, more people wouldn't opt out of union representation. As it stands, the teachers, one of the most militant of political unions in Wisconsin, saw over 30% of their members opt out of union membership. That speaks a great deal to the need for the reforms Walker and the Republicans brought to the table.

    Trey Gowdy Takes on Obamacare Architect For Lying to "Stupid" Americans.....

    "I can't get past the irony to get to the arrogance. The most transparent administration since the continent shifted had to rely on artifice and deception to pass its signature piece of legislation, you can't make that up. He had to lie to people and then he justified it so I can't even get past the irony of that to get to the arrogance of him calling our fellow Americans stupid," Gowdy said.

    "He just proved that he is willing to lie. He's willing to lie because he has the arrogance of thinking that he knows what is best for this country and the citizens and voters do not, so keep that in mind the next time anybody tries to sell you on a big piece of legislation by calling this comprehensive," Gowdy continued, adding that he'd like to see someone from the administration apologize for what Gruber said. "They lied, they got away with it and they got the bill that they wanted."

    During the show, host Megyn Kelly pointed out that the Obama administration presented Gruber as an "honest broker" to the American people when Obamacare was being debated and eventually passed in 2010. She also ran through a list of examples of how many times Gruber visited the White House and his extensive relationship with President Obama as a top advisor and architect of the law......snip~

    This isn't just going to go away.....and going forward. All associated to BO will be seen as willing to lie to get their way.

    What baffles me is how the far left almost had a collective heart attack when Phil Gramm called us a "nation of whiners" yet they are strangely silent on a direct, obnoxious, devastating insult like this. Except TDS who actually agrees with Gruber and who is proud to call himself "stupid".

    What's up with that?

    True, that is very true. The party is in power is always equated to whomever holds the presidency regardless of who controls the house or the senate or both.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    It will be 9 after the Louisiana run off. Landrieu was out there yesterday campaigning saying she had been in two run offs before and expects to win this one. Landrieu barely won a race when the republican vote was split between two candidates. Add the Republican vote total up you get 56% to Landrieu 44%.

    Cassidy and the Republicans better not get over confident because of those numbers. If they do, Landrieu is a good politician and candidate and comes from a family of Louisiana politicians with know how. But over confidence by the GOP is the only way I see her prevailing.

    I concur.

    In 2008, Millions equated empty platitudes and bumper sticker slogans to Presidential qualifications.

    In 2012, Obama was re-elected.

    Yes, there's allot of idiots in America.

    The Liberal elitist just have it a little backwards. The idiots were NOT the one's who opposed Obama's policies.

    We were the one's who were intelligent enough to at least know that we were being lied to. That these policies would have destructive results.

    DSCC has pulled all funding for her. TV ads too. She will be sent to pasture.
