Obama apologizes for Obamacare, sort of...

In an interview that looks more like a soft peddle apology set-up by the State Run Media network of MSNBC for the disastrous Obamacare start-up and website debacle, President Obama said, "I take responsibility of that, my team takes responsibility of that" and they are working around the clock to get the website fixed. The President then goes on to say...

"Having said that..."

Oh no, here comes the big caveat. Obama continues, "Uh, given that I been burned with a website, more importantly the American people have been burned by a website that's been dysfunctional," he then digs the hole deeper, "what we've also been doing is creating a whole other set of tracks, making sure people can apply by phone effectively, making sure that people can apply in person effectively."

Sorry. Stop the presses. Huge lie number 12,187 from Obama.

No actually, people cannot apply by phone or in person effectively. Everything in Obamacare's monumental fiasco has to go through Healthcare.gov and it's not working. But of course, MSNBC's Chuck Todd did not even mention that to the President because apparently that's what you do when an entire interview is a set-up just so the Dear Great Leader can make a wimpy apology and try and save face.

Not buying it.

After discussing the content of the Affordable Care Act in his exclusive interview with President Obama, NBC News’ Chuck Todd moved on to the troubles that have plagued HealthCare.gov since the website launched on October 1st. Expressing serious frustration with the way the law rolled out, Obama said his team–and the American people–”got burned” by a website that doesn’t work. [...]

Having said all that, Obama added, “given that I’ve been burned already with a website–well, more importantly, the American people have been burned by–a website that has been dysfunctional, what we’ve also been doing is creating a whole other set of tracks.” He stressed how important it was for people to be able to sign up for insurance over the phone and in person. “What I’m confident about is that anybody who wants to buy health insurance through the marketplace, they are going to be able to buy it,” he said.
