Current U.S. Senator from Louisiana Mary Landrieu has been criticized for spending all of her time in Washington, DC, hosting lavish parties at her palatial digs there, but her Democrat Party leadership now seems anxious to have her air-dropped back to Louisiana for good, despite the fact that she’s in a fight for her political life in next month’s run-off election for her Senate seat.
As Diogenes reports:
Yes friends, the Dems have decided Mary is not a good investment any longer. They tried, nobody can say they didn’t, but it makes no sense to throw good money after bad…and Mary Landrieu is soooo over. See you at Mardi Gras Mary!

Cold,snowy day. DW won a bit of money yesterday playing video slots. These machines are all over our town since the closest casino is in Elgin, Ill. or at the Wisconsin Dells. Apparently the money was burning a hole in her pocket,as Granny would say,so she’s off again. Watching Minnesota and Ohio State play in a blizzard. ‘Tis the season,I guess.

Fox Airs New Gruber Video: Voters ‘Too Stupid to Understand the Difference’ [3:43]
- Nov 2014: FOX News’ Megyn Kelly reports on the Gruber videos. Note how in the second Gruber video he is wearing a microphone. So much for his “off the cuff remark” spin.
- “This bill was written explicitly so CBO would not score the mandate as taxes.” Yet when the bill landed at the Supreme Court, the Democrats were suddenly very much on board with, “Yes, it’s a tax.” Because if it wasn’t a tax, then Congress had no right to pass it!
- “Credible, unbiased sources” … NOT! The administration paid Gruber $400,000 to pimp the bill. Obama used Gruber’s fakey language to “prove” the 2013 Lie of the Year that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”
3 Jonathan Gruber Videos: Americans “Too Stupid to Understand” [2:08]
- “Clever exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.” Note again that two of these three show him speaking while walking around in front of chalk boards with microphones. The backgrounds are similar, but his ties and microphones are different, so it’s clearly two separate presentations.
2014: Pelosi denies knowing who Jonathan Gruber is [2:04]
- “His comments are a year old.” So WHAT?! He was talking about what he had done FIVE years before.
- “9.5 million people will have health insurance who didn’t before.” This ignores
- the FACT that 5+ million taxpaying American citizens who LOST policies they liked and wanted to keep and/or have had huge hikes in premium and deductibles.
- the FACT that a huge percentage of these new enrollees are not taxpayers, are not paying premiums and/or are not even in the US legally,
- the FACT that many uninsured Americans (like my husband) still cannot afford a policy, but now are being FINED for not having one!
- TRY sneaking into Canada or Mexico and demanding they provide you with free health care. Go ahead, Nancy. Try it. I dare you.
2009: Pelosi tells Americans to read Gruber’s ObamaCare analysis [2:04]
- So much for “I don’t know who he is” (at 1:00) …
Jonathan Gruber was used by the Democrats to pimp the bill; what was not revealed was that the man was being PAID by the WH to do so! Democrats knew the bill was horrible; that’s why they had to LIE and CHEAT to get it passed. That’s why Nancy Pelosi once said we had to PASS the bill so we could “find out what’s in it” [:53]
- Remember when Obama promised ALL legislation would be online before Congress voted, so Americans could read it and tell their representatives what they thought about it? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
February 18, 2011: For a real life peek at just how arrogant Leftists are, watch Chairman Mark Larson (D-Burlington) read a letter from a Vermont constituent concerned about a single-payer system and the mockery of that ensues. (Keep in mind that every single thing this constituent cited has been proven again and again wherever single-payer has been tried.) Gruber snarks about the list of concerns: “Was this written by my adolescent children by any chance?” More laughter.
