Of course, it’s all so clear now. The greatest policy failure in American history lays at the feet of the people who warned you at every step this wasn’t a good idea. Sure, that should sell with his mind-numbed supporters. The reality is, yes, they want him to fail because this is bad for America.
President Obama on Tuesday laid part of the blame for Obamacare’s problem-riddled rollout on Republicans, saying that “one side of Capitol Hill was invested in failure.”
Recalling how he and his supporters had to “fight tooth and nail” to get the law passed by a slim margin in Congress, Obama said his administration should have anticipated that dynamic would create a “rockier rollout – that one side of Capitol Hill is invested in failure and that makes the iterative process of fixing glitches and fine-tuning the law” difficult.
He fought tooth and nail from America’s lushest golf courses.
Obama was speaking to an audience at the Wall Street Journal’s annual CEO Council, and responding to a question about the lessons he and his team have learned over the last several weeks from the botched rollout of the Obamacare website.
“We probably underestimated the complexities of building out a website that needed to work the way it should,” he said.
Notice when he fails in spectacular fashion it’s we. But think about this. They had years to get this up and running and couldn’t get through the first day. His staggering incompetence cannot be explained away, only laughed at.
Obama also singled out the federal government’s information procurement process.
“I probably could have identified earlier the way the federal government does procurement and does IT is just generally not very efficient,” said Obama.
So you see, he could have identified it, if only he’d been, you know, the least bit inclined to pay attention. What a fucking clown.
“We are getting it fixed but it would have been better to do it on the front end, not the back end,” he said.
Check out the big brain on Barack! It’s strange, though, we keep hearing from Team Obama how the GOP won’t help them out of this mess, yet they scratch their heads and wonder why. Maybe they should review his own words.
