    Where did I ever say that?
    Please post the quote. I'd be interested if even such a quote exists, which I don't think does.

I just can't take anything conservatives say seriously anymore.

    Ahem...

    I am wondering how you might substantiate the claim the Romneycare is "socialized medicine"?

    I can state categorically, having lived among rabid socialists that not ONE of them would conceive of any law that forces people by penalty of fine to pay money to for profit, multi-national corporations.

    Under "socialized medicine" as the red neck right like to portray universal medical care, the only profits go to the hard working men and women who deliver the services, and the lobbying greed heads go suck wind or move to the land of the free to be a stupid voter.

    Again reading comprehension. The statement you are referring to "highlighted Republican policies that supported or implemented socialized medicine," republicans in congress supported an individual mandated in 1993 in an opposite plan to Clinton's health plan. And Republican governor mitt Romney implemented socialized medicine in MA, and became the Republic nominee for president! What a joke. I could never vote for a party that nominated a diet socialist.

    But, alas, we don't so we'll have to settle for laughing at Media Matters and it's fanboys here on DP.
    Left alone Jonathan Gruber would have disappeared after a while but what makes this story interesting, and a lot of fun, are the people who now never heard of him, defend hm, claim it was someone else's fault, and so on.

    I've followed Leftist politics for quite a while now and they always claim to know what's best for 'the masses', despite their infamous screw-ups over the years. I've no doubt that Gruber is representative of Left Wing leaders and that his fellow travelers believe themselves to be remarkably sophisticated about economics, human needs and understand intuitively and definitely what other people need and want in their lives.

    'The masses' are always other people, "and we can all understand why it's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations". The masses have to be told what's good for them.

    So some supported an individual mandate? And nothing was passed?

    Sounds like a conspiracy to me!

    So if politicians only attempt to pass a policy I vehemently oppose, but they don't succeed, that means I should still vote for them in the future?

    That's like your wife trying to cheat on you but it didn't happen because the guy didn't show up. Obviously conservatives are the type of people who would forgive that easily and stay married to that woman.

    Romney was just the lesser of two evils. I'm sure you can work that out.

    Really, you think the GOP will never lose the Senate ever again?

    When you vote for the lesser of two evils, you're still voting for evil. When Americans wake up to that, we might see some actual change in how things are done in Washington.

    Oh absolutely ... and this guy is dripping with that characteristic.
