This President Is Sorry (But Then You Knew That Already)

Opinion writer for The Washington Post, Dana Milbank wrote:
"Obama rejected pleas from outside experts and even some of his own advisers to bring in people with the expertise to handle the mammoth task [of Obamacare]; he instead left the project in the care of in-house loyalists. And his refusal to listen to alternative opinions, that famed arrogance of his, made him deaf to warnings about its faults.”
Lanny Davis, the man who crafted “Crisis Management 101” for embattled and embarrassed clients like Bill Clinton, Martha Stewart and Jerry Sandusky went on Fox News and said:
"We oversimplified. We should have told people, 'You might have to change plans to increase your coverage, and that's going to cost you more.' That was a mistake. We need to fix it." 
"He's hurting Democrats.  We have Democrats in red states. We've got to fix this problem.  We’ve got to acknowledge that it needs to be fixed.”
Davis’ comments came on the heels of a secret meeting between The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer, Joe Biden, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, Jeff Zients, the president's troubleshooter for the smoking ruin website, and 16 Democrats who are scared shitless that the farce that is ObamaCare will hurt their races for reelection.

Add to that the fact that The Country Music Awards featured Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood hilariously mocking ObamaCare.  The reaction from the audience must have been cringe-worthy for the pricks in the West Wing.

TWMDCO has never listened to the American people, but he will hear the grievances of his bootlickers.  So he “apologized”.

"We weren't as clear as we needed to be, in terms of the changes that were taking place," TWMDCO said in an interview with NBC News. "I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me," he said.

But he 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. Making sure that people can apply by phone effectively.  Making sure that people can apply in person effectively. So 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 did not say whether he would push back the March 31 deadline to enroll or the penalty for those who do not purchase insurance.
