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

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.

If you hear footsteps behind you, that's me in years.

The only thing that keeps me going is my children who are gifted with such intellect I cannot deny them grad school and law school costs. Then there is my red heeler who shares such a bond with me alone, she and I know each others thoughts and movements before ourselves. Our only areas of disagreement are over the swimming pool and allowing a cat in the house.

“Take the blame”? Who — Obama? LOL

This oughta be good. I can just hear Barry now...

“I take full responsibility for the fact that the dastardly Republicans rushed this administration to implement the health care act, while obstructing every positive and productive action we were doing to bring affordable health care to the American people.”

Mister Obama

I remember having to listen to eight years of "Mister Bush" from the left wing press. It got to the point that they completely stopped calling him 'the President'.

I've never once heard the press refer to Obama as 'Mister'. The disgusting sycophants...

Not necessarily. He will come out, lie, and tell WTP he plans to focus like a lazer in doing his job for the American people. Of course, before one can do his job, one would need to know what that job description might be as well as what requirements were entailed.

Sarah Palin:

“In fact, these unusable Obamacare websites make a reasonable person wonder how this administration could have made such a colossal bungle of the rollout when they are, after all, the same savvy experts who had the most sophisticated and precise campaign websites ever built. They could pinpoint voters down to a city block, but they messed up a website that cost the government over $200 million more than it cost Apple to develop the first iPhone. Purposeful?”

I read many saying that Zer0 will try to blame the Republicans for the online disaster. I think if he tries that, the media will have a difficult job backing up his lie. I think the nation is waking up to this DemonRAT dog and pony show. I think the state run media is in damage control and knows it going to get worse.

How long until deductibles, copays, and coinsurance expenses become low to moderate income loan programs administered by a new federal medical expenses loan agency?

That will be on top of your monthly permiums which will be a cash subsidy.

I wonder if Vegas has started a betting line on who he will blame.

I could be wrong about this but when has the ‘press’ ever ripped Obama apart about ANYTHING?

Nah, he’ll just say he inherited Obamacare from the previous administration.

No way he’ll take the blame.
He might even say “I take full responsibility” then go on to explain how it really isn’t his fault.

Obama will do what he always does. He will act like he is just an innocent bystander that had nothing to do with any of this.

Every leftist I know exists in a perpetual state of delusion and will twist their reality to the extreme in order to find some sort of consistency with their beliefs or position.

One more example here.

As long as it has already passed, he will be able to admit that this might take some time. Perhaps Americans will get that extension after all.
