Barack Obama Has His Finger On The Problem

This story went virtually unreported by the mainstream media, but earlier this month U.S. President Barack Obama sat down with NBC reporter Chuck Todd to discuss the colossal failure of the HealthCare.gov website.

This story went virtually unreported by the mainstream media, but earlier this month U.S. President Barack Obama sat down with NBC reporter Chuck Todd to discuss the colossal failure of the HealthCare.gov website.

During that interview, Obama had some telling comments regarding this $1 billion pooch screw.

For example, here’s how he responded when Todd asked him why he was able to build a working campaign website … but not a government one …

“Well, the reason is is that when it comes to my campaign, I’m not constrained by a bunch of federal procurement rules, right?” Obama said.

Wait … Obama? Constrained by rules?

That’s a new one …

“One of the lessons learned from this whole process on the website is that probably the biggest gap between the private sector and the federal government is when it comes to IT,” Obama added.

Ya think?

Later in the interview, Obama offered his thoughts on why this is the case.

“When we buy IT services generally, it is so bureaucratic and so cumbersome that a whole bunch of it doesn’t work or it ends up being way over cost,” he said.

Wow …

Blogger Ann Althouse picked up on the fundamental disconnect here …

“This should have made him sympathetic to the way government burdens private enterprise, but he’s focused on liberating government to take over more of what has been done privately,” Althouse wrote. “And yet there’s no plan, no idea about what would suddenly enable government to displace private businesses competing to offer a product people want to buy.”

“Instead, we’ve been told we must buy a product, and things have been set up so we can only go through the government’s market (the ‘exchange’), and the government has already demonstrated that its market doesn’t work,” Althouse adds. “But you can’t walk away, you’re forced to buy, and there’s nowhere else to go. And yet, he wants us to feel bad about the cumbersome bureaucracy the government encountered trying to procure the wherewithal to set up the market it had already decided we would all need to use.”

Exactly …

Interesting, in that the job was not done within a competitive procurement process, it was given to Mooch’s black Princeton gurrulfren’s company, apparently sole-source. $650million spent on the failure to date…

So basically, he lies, again, about this whole debacle.

“Crony Capitalism” is OK if you’re a Democrat.

Didn’t you get the memo?

The so-called “girlfriend’ looked like a man to me…perhaps they got their “operations” together. Hormones do odd things to people…did you see her oversized hands and brow…and ole Mooch’s hands and adam’s apple? Not to mention MO’s oversized backside….special..Things just look a bit GMO’d here to me and wouldn’t that fit?

Is anyone surprised that a guy with no private sector experience, and very little gov experience, could create such a failure?

Obamacare will be his legacy, alright. One the (D)s are rapidly trying to distance themselves from.

It’s certainly no surprise to people who actually did some research on him, who learned about him and his associations, his attitudes, his statements and his complete lack of experience in any meaningful vocation that would prepare him to be the POTUS. But none of that mattered to the idiot masses out there who ignored all of that, believed everything this charlatan told them (and still believe) and voted for all of their “freebies” paid for by somebody else’s work and with their money.
Obamacare is the greatest case of consumer fraud in the history of this country. If I were a D, I’d be running like hell from it too.

No doubt, SB…I didn’t vote for the P.O.S, either. If we could THINK for ourselves for a change, shed the imposed Hegelian Dialectic designed to divide and conquer us and try all of these treasonous bastards and execute them we could roll back everything this illegal bastard has done…we MAYBE could survive all of the damage…It just starts with fraud…

I’m convinced that consistent finger pointing in indicative of sociopathic tendencies. It’s truly astonishing the number of dirty pols that incorporate it into daily use.
