Pride cometh before the fall.
From Whitehouse.gov - President Obama Holds a Cabinet Meeting, September 12, 2013.
Remarks by the President Before Meeting with Cabinet Members
11:17 A.M. EDT
THE PRESIDENT: Well, obviously were missing a few members of our Cabinet here today. In particular, John Kerry is overseas meeting on a topic that weve been spending a lot of time on over the last several weeks -- the situation in Syria and how we can make sure that chemical weapons are not used against innocent people.
I am hopeful that the discussions that Secretary Kerry had with Foreign Minister Lavrov as well as some of the other players in this can yield a concrete result. And I know that he is going to be working very hard over the next several days to see what the possibilities are there.
But even as we have been spending a lot of time on the Syria issue and making sure that international attention is focused on the horrible tragedy that occurred there, it is still important to recognize that weve got a lot more stuff to do here in this government.
The American people are still interested in making sure that our kids are getting the kind of education they deserve; that were putting people back to work; that we are dealing properly with a federal budget; that bills are getting paid on time; that the full faith and credit of the United States is preserved; and that the federal government itself is, in every single agency, running the way it should and making sure that our constituents and the American people are getting a good deal.
So were going to spend some time here today talking about all the efforts that have been made by many of these Cabinet secretaries to streamline operations, to cut out waste, to improve performance, to improve customer satisfaction. Were going to focus on some specific issues, including managing some of the budget debates that are going to be taking place over the next several weeks.
Were going to be talking about the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, where weve seen some tremendous progress over the last several months and are confident that starting at the beginning of next month, people are going to be able to start signing up for health care -- in many cases, for the first time. And were going to spend some time talking about issues like comprehensive immigration reform that are still of enormous importance to ensure that America grows.
So I appreciate all the great work that people have done. Some of the Cabinet members here are still relatively new, but thanks to their confirmations and the great teams they put around them, I know that theyre hitting the ground running.
Thank you very much, everybody.

It's all a lie to cover Obama's incompetence.
Somebody should ask Obama EXACTLY what was discussed about the ObamaCare roll-out during this Cabinet meeting last month, and why he's frustrated and surprised about it now?
What did Secretary Sebelius say to him then? Did she mislead the President in front of all the other Cabinet Secretaries?
What does Obama plan to do about it now that he knows that he and his Cabinet were lied to by one of his Secretaries?
The crash of 0bamaCare is the best political news I’ve had in about a decade.
The Techies strike back!!!
Somehow I did not think that CGI was going to take the fall for this crap.
Wait until people out here in the hinterlands start losing loved ones over this government sponsored evil corruption.
It’s going to happen...The level of anger will probably reach extreme levels...
Based on this report from CGI to the oversight committee, Sebelius had better bring her atomic top to the hearing tomorrow if she hopes to spin her way out of this mess.
But didn’t you get the memo.... No one tell Obama anything these days...
In an administration that took responsibility for it’s actions you would have people stepping up to offer their resignations but this is the Obama administration where NOBODY, especially Obama, takes responsibility for failure.
A man on fox right now who got a notice he is losing his healthcare is twisting himself into a pretzel defending bammy.
Small potatoes compared to the YEARS of warnings and knowledge team BO knew about the loss of insurance.
Can someone find that speech Obama gave to a union a few years back, where he said his ULTIMATE goal was single payer? He said you cannot jump right into it, you have to ease into it, but that is what he truly wants.
I’m sure this news report is the first Obama’s heard about this.
