Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh slammed President Obama as a liar for claiming he didn’t mislead America on Obamacare.

Mr. Obama made the claim Sunday at the G-20 Summit in Australia when asked how he could champion accountability in government, but keep mum as former Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said “stupidity of the American voter” and lack of transparency was key in passage of the president’s health care law.

“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,” Mr. Obama told reporters at the summit.

Mr. Limbaugh expressed incredulity.

“This is unbelievable,” he said of Mr. Obama’s statements. “This little sound bite of 23 seconds may be more jam-packed with lies than any 23-second presidential sound bit I’ve ever played.

“[Mr. Gruber] was in meetings with Obama. Gruber has been bragging about them. Obama has talked about Gruber being in meetings. … Gruber has his hands in advising the regime on amnesty, illegal immigration, how to do it, when to do it, what to do it and all that.”

Mr. Limbaugh called Mr. Obama a “sociopathic” liar and a “lying con man.”

“It just confirms how stupid he thinks you are,” he said. “That sound bite is an exclamation point to how stupid and gullible Obama believes you to be.”
