Obama on Gruber: I Only Knew Him Well Enough To Say Hello Around The Obamacare Meeting Table [VIDEO]

Which liar is lying about Jonathan Gruber’s role in Obamacare, Gruber or Obama?

Chuck Ross reports:

President Barack Obama addressed MIT economist Jonathan Gruber’s comments for the first time on Sunday.

“I just heard about this,” Obama told Fox News’ Ed Henry during a press conference at the G20 Summit in Australia. “I get well briefed before I come out here.”

“The fact that some adviser who never worked on our staff expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with in terms of the voters is no reflection on the actual process that was run,” Obama said.

On the other hand, as Patrick Howley reports:

President Obama personally crafted a major Obamacare deception with Jonathan Gruber at one of Gruber’s numerous White House meetings, according to a 2012 Gruber interview with PBS

The Gateway Pundit highlighted a clip from Gruber’s 2012 interview with the PBS program Frontline in which the professor admitted that he worked together with the president in the Oval Office to conceal the political impact of their plan to get more tax revenue out of employer-sponsored health insurance plans by imposing a new “Cadillac tax” on companies.

Gruber never worked on Obama’s staff. He was just in the room when Obama and his advisers were figuring out how to lie about Obamacare. And Obama doesn’t agree with Gruber about the stuff he agrees with Gruber about. You are getting very sleepy.

Barry thinks he’s pulling a Jedi mind trick: “This is not the Gruber you’re looking for.”

If you still believe him, about this or anything else, then you deserve to.
