So, This Is The Latest Obama Scandal?

The right wing news, politicians, bloggers and other conservatives are all in an uproar that some no-name professor said that American voters were stupid about ObamaCare.
From Fox News:
Yet another video has surfaced of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber crediting the passage of the health care bill in part to American voters’ lack of intelligence.
The Daily Caller posted the third video Wednesday of the MIT professor, this time speaking at the University of Rhode Island in 2012.
Gruber was discussing the law’s so-called "Cadillac tax,” which he said was helped along by “hero” then-Sen. John Kerry. The “Cadillac tax” mandates that insurance companies be taxed rather than policy holders. He said that taxing individuals would have been “politically impossible,” but taxing the companies worked because Americans didn't understand the difference.
“So basically it's the same thing,” he said. “We just tax the insurance companies, they pass on higher prices that offsets the tax break we get, it ends up being the same thing. It's a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.”
The new video follows a second tape played on Fox News' "The Kelly File” Tuesday that showed Gruber speaking on a similar topic at an October 2013 event at Washington University in St. Louis.  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/11/13/yet-another-video-shows-obamacare-architect-disparaging-voter-intelligence/
Yeah, the guy is stupid... for telling the truth.
Politicians on both sides think the voters are stupid.
And they always have.
Republicans think anybody who votes for Democrats are stupid and uninformed.
Democrats think anybody who votes for Republicans are stupid and uninformed.
Liberals think conservatives are stupid.
Conservatives think liberals are stupid.
I personally think most, not all, liberals are stupid and uninformed.
Most liberal bloggers think I am stupid and uninformed.
The only thing interesting about this so-called scandal is that someone was actually honest about their thoughts of American voters.
So, to me, there is no scandal, just a guy being honest.
