    I think he was referring to the OP.

    Hmm, i think Gruber something rights, some Americans are really easy to manipulate and the result of manipulation f.e. by social networks and tv - is choosing of today's president. So we need not to criticize him, we need to force citizens not to watch CNN and Fox.

    That being said, had he made the comment ALL voters in general from both parties are stupid, he would have been just as correct. Exhibit A-Congress. Exhibit B-the White House. Low information voters are stupid. Partisan voters are stupid. People that blindly hate republicans are stupid. People that blindly hate democrats are stupid. Theres a whole lot of stupid going on when it comes to politics.


    Much of American society now gets its "news" from a crawl across at the bottom of the screen. All the while, they are subjected to background programming, talking heads etc. you only hear with part of your brain, which is pretty much pro-Obama, "I feel a tingle down my leg when he speaks" cheering section.

    I do not understand the howl of protest from the left on this one, they had no problem being referred to as "low information voters" for a decade, "stupid" is just another, more accurate word for them.

    So who are the stupid ones?
    Who are the ones that ate the crap?
    Who are the ones that defended and promoted ObamaKare?

    Can we call these folks... The Stupid Ones?

    The Demokrats.

    Now, for the Demokrats out there who polluted this site, repeating the lies told to you by Obama/Gruber/Pelosi/Reid... I'd love to hear why your side of the aisle aren't The Stupid Ones.

    You folks OWN ObamaKare. It's 100% your stupidity.

    And with that... Demokrats... do you have any regrets about supporting Obama/Gruber's mountain of feces?
    Oh, looky, a hyper-partisan question with a hyper-partisan poll with a hyper-partisan conclusion... AND the word "Democrat" is intentionally repeatedly misspelled (as if that somehow makes a relevant point).



    Anyway, while the topic-du-jour was Obamacare, he was speaking really across-the-board, and about all voters that disagree with him and what he knows best.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Of course he might have been talking about those that were so stupid they believed the ACA would bring about Death Panels and Communism, or possibly he was talking about those that were so stupid that they thought the party that passed Medicare and has always supported it would destroy it to pay for the ACA. Perhaps he was talking about those that were so stupid that they raised hell when one of the provisions of the ACA would required participating companies in Medicare Advantage to offer Medicare coverage for - get this - the same cost to taxpayers as traditional Medicare. I mean really when you think about it, there are a lot of reasons for one to think that many of the people involved in the ACA debate were kind of stupid.
    The Democrats removed the death panels, after they got busted.

    Clearly he was talking about supporters of the democrat party, the rest weren't buying the sunshine and rainbows he was selling.

    He was referring to the Democrats and everyone who bought into the BS that is the ACA

    Conservatives knew even back then that Obama and the Democrats were liars.

    I never bought into it because the plan(s) that I would need would cost a small fortune. What I wanted (the mandate) got dropped. I picketed BCBS for that one. I was on the tube for about 3/4 of a second. Yah!

    Dammit! Help me out here, what was the whole name of that mandate that I was for? lolz!
