AP REPORTER: OBAMA ‘VERY WORRIED’ ABOUT HEALTH CARE ROLLOUT, WILL ‘HAVE TO’ TAKE BLAME MONDAY
The Blaze ^ | 10/20/2013 | Oliver Darcy

Posted on 10/20/2013 9:39:22 PM PDT by Signalman

President Barack Obama is “very worried” about the faulty rollout of his signature health care program and will take blame for it during remarks on Monday, the Associated Press’ White House Correspondent Julia Pace said Sunday.

Pace, making an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” was asked by host Chris Wallace about the mood inside the White House.

“As someone who covers the White House, how worried are they about what’s going on here?” Wallace asked.

“The White House is very worried about this,” Pace said. “They spent a lot of time and money on this program, and you can’t say this has been anything short of embarrassing for the president.”

“He’s going to come out on Monday. He’s going to address these problems,” she continued. “I don’t know how specific he is going to get, but I think this sort of going to be a mea culpa for the president.”

“You expect him really to say we messed up here?” Wallace asked.

“I think he’s going to have to,” Pace answered. “If he comes out and says anything other than that, he’s just going to be ripped apart by the media, by the press.”

Pace is the reporter who on Saturday broke news that nearly half-a-million people have applied for, but not enrolled, in Obamcare.

The president is widely expected to address the faulty rollout of his health care overhaul during remarks on Monday.

Why would he have to take the blame, when he’s never had to before?

does anyone think for a minute he will “take the blame”?

I don’t.

He will blame the Republicans, Bush, Ted Cruz, the media, the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, the Grinch, the shadow people, aliens..... before he ever really accepts blame

He won’t take blame, he won’t blame Sebelius, he certainly won’t delay it, he won’t stop any waivers, he will give the unions a waiver, he will blame the Republicans, he will blame Cruz, he will blame Bush, he will fix it for the people....
All is well.

[Mister] Barack Obama is “very worried” about the faulty rollout of his signature health care program and will take blame for it during remarks on Monday, the Associated Press’ White House Correspondent Julia Pace said Sunday.

I can't recall an individual in politics who is as blame-obsessed as is Mister Obama.

One suspects that any blames in this horrific ruination of medicine and our individual health and our economy will be minimized, shifted, and re-directed to Republicans.

(One also suspects that Mister Obama, Democrats, and most of the nation will be portrayed as VICTIMS. Watch for it.)

Oh BS. He'll blame the Republicans somehow, and the media will back him all the way as usual.

The reason why he allow all those incompetent, corrupt officials to remain is so he could blame them for his lack of Executive skills

Obama has one goal in 2013, do not jeopardize the Dems in 2014 elections and if possible take the House. IMHO he will accept responsibility and even DELAY it. He has more to lose pushing the program forward then delaying it. Right now Obamacare is taking center stage in publicity. Delaying it would be the smartest thing he can do. We’ll see if he is smart enough to do so.

A leader speaks of “responsibility.”
The Obama administration and his MSM boot-licks automatically refer to “blame” instead, as if hinting he is accepting “blame” for someone else’s mistakes. The most childish administration on record.

The low-info voters just don’t seem to grasp the concept that the shutdown only occurred because the Dems and 0 wouldnt agree to a budget and defunding Obamacare which would benefit THEM also. Instead we keep hearing their spoon-fed knee-jerk reactions that 0’s ACORNs style activists keep telling them to chant like mindless parrots.

The Obamatollah Regime’s goal is Single Payer.

To get there, they’ve got to collapse the private insurance industry so the gov’t can step in to ‘fill the void.’ That takes time.

Thus, the obvious catastrophe of the broken website is just a bump in the road. Obamacare isn’t supposed to work, but they didn’t plan on it being THIS MUCH of a disaster THIS EARLY.

Thus, they’re pleading ‘technical glitches’ and they’ll kick the can down the road until the day after the 2014 elections, when they’ll drop the act and start publicly calling for Single Payer.

On that day, Obamatollah will emerge from the West Wing in his turban, leap onto his magic carpet, and take to the sky screaming 1-800-F**K-YOU in Arabic.

Never. Gonna. Happen.

Absolutely nothing is ever this guys fault.

If he speaks, it will be another chapter in his continuing series of attacks on republicans and the tea party. They are wholly to blame for all of the problems with his poor program.

Social do-gooder programs have always been designed to build federal employment, staff subcontractors with headcount for mostly benign feel-good crap initiatives which american taxpayers would fund with little question. After all it was to feed kids after school, clean up waterways, train people to obtain job skills which they would never master anyhoo, and stand in lines for cheese.

Never-ever did the do-gooder crowd of the late 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's, bite onto the bumper of the speeding truck which would deliver vital services which were being delivered thru private markets with 80% plus satisfaction. Services which provide us with the most basic quality of life healthcare happens to be uncharted territory of the left dreamers. After all, we are not Chad refugees walking ten miles to get a polio and tetnus shot because we have no access otherwise? At least not yet.

Obama bit onto the bumper of this speeding truck of a program and promised he knew where it was going. He still has both jaws hanging on and is deeply regretting the ride. If he lets go he'll break his neck tumbling down the highway from the momentum of his promises. If he continues to hang on, it's his program alone. He can't blame the traffic or the people who built the truck.

You really almost have to feel sorry for the guy. He's like the teenager you have who has made decisions which you have surely seen as flawed, but yet have to let the teenager fail on their own as a learning experience. I just thought we would never elect the lesson lacking teenager as our president of the country before he understood failures of his own and of his mentors.
