Some of you may be tired of all the Jonathan Gruber videos so here’s something a bit different, Barack Obama talking about Gruber when he was a Senator in 2006. Way before this weekend when he was distancing himself from the MIT professor–he was bragging about stealing Gruber’s Ideas.

“You have already drawn some of the brightest minds from academia and policy circles, many of them I have stolen ideas from liberally, people ranging from Robert Gordon to Austan Goolsbee; Jon Gruber; my dear friend, Jim Wallis here, who can inform what are sometimes dry policy debates with a prophetic voice.”
