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 whats 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 cant say this has been anything short of embarrassing for the president.
Hes going to come out on Monday. Hes going to address these problems, she continued. I dont 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 hes going to have to, Pace answered. If he comes out and says anything other than that, hes 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?
He’ll just blame Bush and the GOP.
does anyone think for a minute he will “take the blame”?
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 will default blame to someone.
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.
It’s those damn Repubs who haven’t provided enough funding...
WHat a joke. If he blames aliens, the MSM will repeat it as the truth!
If he comes out and says anything other than that, hes just going to be ripped apart by the media, by the press.
This is from the onion right?
> Why would he have to take the blame, when hes never had to before?
Well 0 DID build that. But he’s a politician’s politician. He will look over the crowd of reporters and change his answers according to the mood / whatever will benefit him most...
That's about it verbatum.
Grandma was what he meant regarding “Shovel Ready Projects”.
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.)
Emmanuel Goldstein is in for an ass whoopin’ now!
Oh BS. He'll blame the Republicans somehow, and the media will back him all the way as usual.
I see no change here, he’s blaming his Secretary
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.
Snicker. Obama take responsibility for a failure? On what planet in what universe?
