Of course: Jonathan Gruber now regrets his historic level of O-care transparency

Jonathan Gruber, referred to as one of the “architects” of Obamacare (a credential as impressive as being known as the designer of the Lotus Riverside in Shanghai or programmer of HealthCare.Gov), barely gave people 24 hours to enjoy his recorded admission that transparency and Dem base voters with IQs above room temperature were obstacles to Obamacare’s passage.

Today, Gruber was a guest on the MSNBC program of Ronan Farrow — emoticon diversity officer and the first newsman under the age of 12 to receive a Cronkite Award — to explain why his previous transparency was a mistake:

An architect of ObamaCare on Tuesday said he regretted his 2013 comment that a “lack of transparency” and the “stupidity of the American voter” helped Congress pass the healthcare law.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Jonathan Gruber made his first public comments on MSNBC after conservative media unearthed a video clip of his comments over the weekend.

“The comments in the video were made at an academic conference,” Gruber said on “Ronan Farrow Daily.” “I was speaking off the cuff. I basically spoke inappropriately. I regret having made those comments.”

Gruber probably doesn’t regret making the remarks as much as he regrets they were recorded. It was, however, considerate of Gruber to go on MSNBC to explain his remarks to the very ilk he was referring to as “stupid” and gullible. Funny that nobody at MSNBC or any of Gruber’s media apologists seem to realize that.

Roll tape on the Backpedal-Tron:

It didn’t take Gruber long to get back on the “typo” excuse train mere seconds after expressing regret for an admission of deliberate deception. He’s still counting on stupidity.

Oh, and can the MSM please stop reporting that “conservative” media unearthed the Gruber video clip? It’s redundant — the mainstream media sure as hell never would have bothered to find it.
