You might think that associating yourself with an MIT economist would be a safe choice.
Video unearthed by the conservative Washington Free Beacon Monday showed Obama praising Jonathan Gruber and other liberal policy experts as some of the "brightest minds" in academia. "Many of them I have stolen ideas from liberally, people ranging from [economist] Robert Gordon to [economist] Austan Goolsbee [to] Jon Gruber," Obama said in the clip.
Be careful whose ideas you steal.
When they come clean, it all gets real.
I see that a U. of Chicago professor of international relations wrote in this morning's Tribune:
"The Gruber videos are devastating because they say flatly that the deception was premeditated and was used self-consciously to pass the law. The professor goes further and says the law would have been defeated if its central provisions had been known to voters."
Gruber, Gruber, grim and glum,
who was it that you said was dumb?
