Skip to comments.Sebelius: Obamacare website problems blindsided the President
Posted on 10/23/2013 7:05:30 AM PDT by jimbo123
Before it even launched, red flags went up about the Obamacare website. Health insurance companies complained about it, and the site crashed during a test run. But nobody told the President of any of it, the nation's health chief told CNN.
Kathleen Sebelius said President Barack Obama didn't hear that there may be problems with the sign-up portal for his signature health care law until it went live on October 1. That's when the site nosedived into a technical abyss.

Yeah, right. All goes as planned.
Nobody told him anything
As I’ve said elsewhere, they’re doing what has a proven record of success for them.
Put the focus on Obama and play the victim card.
Very smart move.
Obama has so many dreams and good intentions to help us yet besides GOP obstruction those working below him keep ruining his golf games with bad news like this.
I dont buy it, but if if true why would he not know details about his namesake plan to destroy our way of life...pleazzzzz
Many things seem to blindside this President.
“A little less of the limelight and a little more of the midnight oil.” - Calvin Coolidge
I’m starting to smell a “government bailout” of these so called “insurance companies”.
Stupid is, as stupid does.
He still doesn’t know that Walter White from Breaking Badly is dead.
He probably doesn’t even know if the Dodgers overcame the Cards.
He probably doesn’t know the IPhone 5S is out.
He probably doesn’t know Hillary left the cabinet.
He probably is still waiting on word to what happened to that Benghazi diplomat guy.
He’s still probably waiting on the arranged disagreement between Shawn Michaels and Triple H (on WWE).
Heck, he might not even know that Buffy the Vampire Slayer series ended.
If I were the President and had been truly blindsided this badly ... heads would be rolling out of DC like bowling balls, with Sebelius the first one down the ‘lane’. Personally I don’t think he was blindsided at all ..... everything anyone in this administration says is a LIE .... so why should their statements about who knew what, when, and how regarding Obamacare be any different.
Make no mistake, that's been the goal of progressives since Wilson. Once that happens, and you're denied a life saving drug or procedure, Good Luck getting an appeal. Don't tow the party line? Well we'll just put you at the end of the line for that bypass.
Well, being inept and incompetent sure helps you stay unaware of things you SHOULD know about. Nothing like lack of leadership to keep things from getting done. Are the lackeys too afraid to fess up that things are FUBAR and face the wrath of the won?
And whose job was it to inform him, Kathleen?
Oh, this is hilarious! Sebelius ADMITS that Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing. I hope the House jumps on this as a lesson not to trust the One and his plan to drive America into communism.
Nobody has included Obama in anything since he pulled the trigger on Bin Laden.
Actually it was clear to me from his little Rose Garden appearance that he doesn’t understand jack about what is going on. Just delegates it to his minions and assumes he can always bail them out with his magical tongue.
Ha ha ha ha... So our Fearless Leader never asked? Never asked for a briefing, a demonstration, a status report on his “signature achievement”?
Leadership is either there or it isn’t. Community organization isn’t any help at all.
“If I were the President and had been truly blindsided this badly ... heads would be rolling out of DC like bowling balls?
Nope his minions are a reflection of him, Obongo and his Puppet Masters put them in their positions. If he admits they are incompetent so is he. A narcissist like him will never do the right thing if it negatively reflects on them.
You are probably right. There is probably a deal in it for them, such as, if they don’t have X # of people sign up, or their profits for the first year are below a certain # or measurement, they will get some “grants” or something so that they are not harmed.
Sounds like Reagan was more in touch with things in his 2nd term then Obama. Yet the media makes nasty jokes about Reagan and praises Obama’s blatant ineptness.
How can you blindside the blind? How can you teach the ignorant?
We must demand Congressional hearings NOW for the $6 million dollars paid to a company to create a non-fuctioning website.
Heads should roll and Dems made to pay for this. And we want our money back!
Right. A $600,000,000 blindside.
Sebelius: Obamacare website problems blindsided the President
He only learned by reading about it in the paper.
The only way that could be true is if he were a strutting totalitarian psychopath who everyone yessed to death out of fear.
So either Sebelius is lying, or Obama is completely out of touch with any shred of reality.
Joke will be on Sebelius cause if this heat continues to rise for a couple more weeks she is going under the bus.
Did anybody tell him I can’t keep my doctor. . I can’t keep my insurance policy. .PERIOD??!!Did anyone tell him my rates have NOT gone down $2500??!!. . .what about these “glitches?”
He only learned by reading about it in the paper.
They couldn’t even get him to sit through his Daily Intelligence Briefings. You think there’s any shot they could get him to sit through a software project development meeting?
Not with Sportscenter calling.
It was never supposed to work. It was rolled out just to destroy the system.
There was little or no major media /Radio campaign to sell it.
The web site was full of flaws and launched anyway.
All is going to plan. The system is crumbling.
BS, Obama designed it to sink, he is like a mole under a house, the digger of sea dikes, the one opening seacocks in the boat.
Acorn is waiting to be in charge of a single payer plan right now.
This freakin’ guy makes Sgt. Shultz (”I know nuffing”) look like Encyclopedia Brown.
LIAR....these people make my stomach turn...asshats extraordinaires!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She is throwing herself under the bus to protect her incompetent boss.
Reminds me of Lois Lerner.
He just heard about it on the news, like everybody else.
Personally, I doubt he didn’t know.
I just think he didn’t care, or he honestly thought it could be spun into a positive.
Recall the spin, song and dance routines they did over Benghazi?
They thought they could sweep it under the rug or spin it as a “wrinkle” in national relations.
Once that didn’t work, they buried it, ignored it, and signalled the lapdog media to do the same.
They may try a similar tack with this.
First, downplay the events, claim Zero knew nothing, then if that doesn’t work, bury it and ignore it.
Sgt. Schultz...”I don’t know nothing!”
But not you, Sibelius. You knew.
You knew the Obamaware wasn’t ready.
You knew it would be impossible for people to enroll.
You knew that policies were going to be canceled upon initiation of PPACA.
You knew yet said and did nothing to prevent the situation or to warn people. You didnt care.
You knew that huge numbers of people would unexpectedly be uninsured. You didn’t care.
This could result in people dying due to loss of insurance. But you don’t care.
