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?
Obama found out about the website failure from the news like everyone else, that just goes to show how swell a man Obummer is as he is a man of the sheeple...
