Obamacare: Memo reveals health care adviser warned W.H. was losing control 3 years ago
(CBS News) CBS News is learning the Obama administration knew of the risks associated with the Obamacare rollout well before last month.
Three years ago, a trusted Obama health care adviser warned the White House it was losing control of Obamacare. A memo obtained by CBS News said strong leadership was missing and the law's successful implementation was in jeopardy. The warnings were specific and dire -- and ignored.
David Cutler, who worked on the Obama 2008 campaign and was a valued outside health care consultant wrote this blunt memo to top White House economic adviser Larry Summers in May 2010: "I do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the president's vision or have the capability to carry it out."
Cutler wrote no one was in charge who had any experience in complex business start-ups. He also worried basic regulations, technology and policy coordination would fail.
"You need to have people who have understanding of the political process, people who understand how to work within an administration and people who understand how to start and build a business, and unfortunately, they just didn't get all of those people together," Cutler said.

Obama Reportedly Told Staff Hes Really Good at Killing People
Nov. 3, 2013 2:41pm Oliver Darcy
President Barack Obama told his staff that hes really good at killing people, according to a new book set to hit shelves Tuesday.
The book, titled Double Down and authored by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, reportedly says the Nobel Peace Prize winning president made the comments while discussing drone strikes with his aides.
Coming out of a CBS News piece is far more shocking.
... as if he has a vision besides chewing nicotine gum and watching TV.
Note how this Cutler jackass prioritizes things: the political process comes first. He pretends he get it, but not really.
Let's be honest, the above statement holds true with the liberals in the GOPe, as well as the Dems. The GOPe doesn't even pretend to dislike BigGov anymore.
While what you say is true at the top level, it is less likely with the body of the Party. I am speaking of Democrats from the lowest level, bureaucrats, teachers, and trade union thugs. "Moderate Republicans" in the wider Party are usually middle class working stiffs who just don't know any better; many are former Democrats still in recovery. We should keep in mind that they need education more than reproof.
I do not believe for one moment that Obama had the vision. His puppeteers are just a pack of back-patters in an elitist “president’s” club, doling out payback to their bid donors and their cronies. United States of Crazies.
Oh, I believe they all know EXACTLY what Obama’s vision is.
This may all be to help separate Hillary from obamacare.
This is about ideology not policy.
