Remember when Jonathan Gruber said Obamacare was passed basically because of the stupidity of the American people and admitted that they would rather have the law than be transparent as promised. He was basically bragging about it and his part in it.
Than, when the president was asked about this comment Gruber made, he lied bald faced. I mean bald faced. His comment is below. It’s kind of a it depends on what the meaning of is is. He was “some adviser” and not officially on “staff” per se.
Turns out he was extremely involved and he was called the “hero” when Obamacare passed.
On Morning Joe, MSNBC, the question was asked of the panelists by Joe Scarborough: “Did the president lie?” Each one of them (except for Mika who said it appeared that he did) said “Well, he was less than forthcoming” after which they broke out in belly laughs and giggles. Very funny how the administration lied and deceived the American people about Obamacare.
I guess it’s just me, but I don’t see anything funny about the president lying to the people, not once or twice but many times and then even when caught red handed, he continues to lie and say the same thing. Now, that is a degree of liar that is beyond what I would call normal. But this, also, is a part of the bias in the media. They minimize it, laugh at it, so people won’t take it seriously.
ED HENRY, FOX NEWS: At your Burma townhall a couple of days ago, you tried to inspire young leaders by saying, “governments need to be held accountable, need to be responsive to the people.” I wonder how you square that with your former adviser, Jonathan Gruber claiming you were not transparent about the health law because in his words the American people, the voters are stupid. Did you mislead Americans about the taxes, about keeping your plan in order to get the bill passed?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: No, I did not. I just heard about this. 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. We had a year-long debate, Ed. I mean, go back and look at your stories. The one thing we can’t is that we did not have a lengthy debate about health care in the United States of America. Or that it was not adequately covered. I would just advise — every press outlet here, go back and pull up every clip, every story, and I think it will — it’s fair to say there was not a provision in the health care law that was not extensively debated and was fully transparent. Now, there were folks who disagreed with some of the various positions. It was a tough debate.
President Obama’s dismissal of MIT’s Jonathan Gruber as just “some adviser” he barely remembers, rather than a key architect of ObamaCare, has always been one of the flimsiest and most transparent lies told by this profoundly dishonest White House.

Of course, I am fully aware that to the Obama supporter who is still defending him it wouldn’t matter if he had been the killer in Charleston. They are defending his use of “ni**er” and I’m sure it would be the same for murder. I won’t use the word because I don’t use it and also because if anyone thinks it will now be okay for whites to say it, it is a trick. Don’t try it because you will be brutalized and destroyed as others have been, no matter if the president says it and Don Lemon on CNN holds up a big sign with the word on it.
