Obama did not have healthcare relations with that man Gruber

OBAMA At no time

In Brisbane Australia, President Obama clumsily told Fox News’ Ed Henry that he ‘just heard about’ the controversy over Jonathan Gruber whom he described as ‘some adviser who never worked on our staff.’

Tweets:

  • Apparently, he doesn’t talk with his press secretary, who answered questions about Gruber earlier this week.
  • So the White House paid “some adviser who never worked on our staff” $400,000 a year for what, exactly?
  • “I just heard about this” Obama. IRS targeting conservatives, DOJ spying on journalists, Gruber, Veterans Affairs scandal, Fast and Furious.
  • Ok, *now* it’s an official Obama scandal.
  • “Some adviser” Gruber visited White House officials 19 times; on July 20, 2009, with Obama in person.
  • Sergeant Schultz, “I know nothing.”

  1. Mind if I steal your headline for a Photoshop I’m working on?

    • Chrissy should get back to you shortly, Curmudgeon. She usually checks in later on in the evening. Can’t wait to see that photoshop! This is one of the funniest of O’BrainDead’s scandals so far. His Brisbane presser was a riot.

      • I hope so. I’d really like to post it so folks can enjoy the snark.

          Feel free to repost my work or steal my graphics. I’m on the dole, so everything I do here is public domain IMHO.

          That being said, I play pretty fast and loose in the unattributed quotations department, though I do try to put all my sources in the linkies at the bottom. I stole the healthcare relations bit outright from some wag on Twitter. Or maybe it was a Twitchy teamer.

          If you want to credit where it’s due, hit my linkies and see if what you liked was stolen by me from someone else. Sorry to be so sloppy, but I find that giving credit for every little thing makes my blog so clunky, it’s practically unreadable.

      Did not, not, not think of the headline. Wish I had. It’s a hoot … which is why I stole it! LOL

      • When it comes to kickass headlines like that, theft is the sincerest form of flattery. When I come up with what I think is a clever bit of snark, I love it when people steal it… in fact, I’m never sure something I’ve written is really good until it gets stolen. 😉

          I built a sphinx at the beach once and thought while I was doing it, “I’ll know it’s good if someone takes a picture.” I was so tickled when someone did just that. 🙂

          • Decades ago, in the pre-internet era, I used to write a quarterly newsletter for my local chapter of Wisconsin Right to Life. Along with the usual news stories, cartoons, quotable quotes, etc., I always included an editorial that I wrote myself. The newsletter editors at the other chapters around the state would sometimes steal my editorials and use them in their own newsletters. That was how I knew that what I’d written was good. 😉

    Ooh … good idea! I’m going to put this up top and also add the Monty Python one. Kinda makes it all funnier, IMHO.

  4. If I had ever supported this man, or his policies, I would be embarrassed to admit it. If I STILL, in spite of everything, supported this man and his policies, I’d be embarrassed to come out of my house without a bag over my head! REALLY? The president “just heard about” the controversy? For that matter, if I were the president, I wouldn’t come out of “my” House without a bag over my head for fear someone would think I supported myself.
