On Tuesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough took aim at the White House and other prominent Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, for their responses to ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber remarks regarding the American voter and the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010.
According to Scarborough, the response by these Democrats have prolonged the story and made the problem worse.
“Talk about taking a one-day story and making it a one-week or two-week story,” Scarborough said. “They should have just come out and said, ‘Jonathan Gruber, really smart guy. He helped us draft the bill. He’s an idiot. There are obvious reasons why he’s a tenured professor, because he’s an idiot in front of cameras, but he’s pretty smart behind cameras. And he helped us put together this package.’ But they didn’t do that. They’re being too clever by half, and they’re screwing things up for themselves. They can’t get out of their way.”
