    So Obamacare was all a Republican plot, was it? Are you part of the "Friends of Jonathan Gruber Society"?

    Even more so now that the Gruber videos have been uncovered and brought forth, where he's basically bragging to his fellow leftists just on how ingenious he is committing fraud on the electorate.

    A real POS this guy is. Real POS most leftists are.

    We can only hope that this sets the leftist / progressive / liberal agenda back decades.

    The guy made a laughing stock out of himself and if we had an honest media it'd be a lot more fun to watch the rich little ego tripper squirm.
    But, alas, we don't so we'll have to settle for laughing at Media Matters and it's fanboys here on DP.

    My best friend is a special forces officer currently serving in Afghanistan, and is a staunch leftist. I don't agree with his political stances, but find it funny when posters refer to an entire political party with some type of vulgar name or insult. I would bet my entire portfolio no one would ever call him a pos to his face. Internet warriors are so tuff!

Conservatives proved to the world they have no ideological backbone and became the laughing stock of partisan politics when they voted for him in droves. I just can't take anything conservatives say seriously anymore.
    So a vote for Barrack Obama must have been a vote against socialized medicine. I've never heard it explained quite that way before.

    You dream big dreams don't you.

    Yes, they should, but then they are the ones backing a law that was constructed with "torturous language."

    I lost my hope when Obama skated after "you can keep your plan", the lack of true outrage on that was deafening

    Fair enough. Most leftist policies are POS.

    Gruber is a fraudster, and should be brought up on criminal fraud charges as well as all those who voted for this leftist POS legislation knowing it was a fraud.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    What law did congressional Republicans pass that socialized the entire medical system in Anerica?

    You taking voting for Romney in the presidential and against Obama as some sort of endorsement of socialized medicine surely is ideologically based distortion if there ever was.
    You taking voting for Romney as an endorsement for small government, free market conservatism surely is ideologically based distortion if there ever was.

    And Libbos are always snake-eaters, or are best friends with a snake-eater.
