How surprising: Obama just now learned about the Jonathan Gruber story

Step aside, “if you like your plan you can keep your plan,” because we have a new “lie of the year”:

Anybody who believes that is Gruber’s target audience.

Just for the sake of wild argument, let’s assume Obama’s telling the truth. That would almost be worse, because it would mean that his administration paid this guy hundreds of thousands of dollars (and states much more on top of that) for a long time to go around and, according to Democrats now distancing themselves from him, tell lies about Obamacare. And nobody in the administration was keeping track of what he was telling the states and reporting it back to the White House?

Obama’s also assuming everybody is stupid — but it’s nice to know where Gruber gets that attitude from.
