Obama names healthcare rollout his biggest mistake of dismal year
By Niall Stanage and Amie Parnes - 12/20/13 02:45 PM EST
President Obama rued the rollout of the healthcare website as his biggest mistake of the year during a White House news conference Friday, underlining the extent to which the issue has overshadowed everything else during a dismal 2013 for the 44th president.
Asked about his worst error, Obama said that he had stressed the need for consumers to have a good experience, an easy experience in the run-up to the launch of HealthCare.Gov.
He continued: The fact is it didnt happen in the first month, first six weeks, in a way that was at all acceptable. And since Im in charge, obviously we screwed it up.
Yet, at the same time, Obama emphasized that enrollment into the health exchanges was rapidly picking up pace.
More than half a million Americans enrolled on HealthCare.Gov in the first three weeks of December alone, he said.
He later lamented, Probably the first month and a half was lost because of problems with the website and the attendant bad publicity.
Earlier, Obama dodged a question as to whether 2013 had been the worst year of his tenure.
I gotta tell you, thats not how I think about it, Obama said in response to a question from the Associated Press.

He said it...........
Yeah, Hatecare was a blunder but believing Bo thinks it a mistake is another damn lie of his. He could easily begin the push to reverse it if he felt like it.
The “rollout” ain’t jack. It’s his “signature” ObamaCare scam that is the problem.
I think letting the Iranians have nukes and in essence turning our backs on Isreal will prove to be a bigger mistake than some stupid website
Yeah. He said it.
I’M in charge.
WE screwed it up.
Who is this “we,” Kimosabe?
He said he “screwed the duck” on ObamaCare.
But the mods disagreed.
Notice he doesn’t name the lie of the century as his biggest mistake because politicians think it’s okay to lie to get their way.
The ends justify the means.
Yeah, he grossly overestimated the intelligence of the American people. We should have known that “period” actually meant about 42 paragraphs of fine print, caveats, exceptions, and wiggle room. Too bad for Obama.
Obama has not a single genuine bone in his body.
The libtards are not as perceptive. Pajama Boy is their answer.
Well that makes everything ok, got to run my tax paid multi million vacation is about start, see ya.
Admitted liar, admitted failure.
And they want to do Immigration Reform?
Why Let This Group Do Anything ELse?
A rare occasion where he said we rather than I. We screwed up, he said. If he had been doing well, he would’ve said, “My White House did well,” or something similarly idiotic.
The economy, race relations.....everything buddy.
Aw, poor Obama. Insert Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
Soooooooooo......he’ll be petitioning the Supreme Court to get rid of his signature monstrosity of a disaster and put healthcare back the way it was, pronto?
Didn’t think so.
Crocodile tears ... can’t escape the obvious failure. So, an insincere apology.
Ah, so many mistakes, and so many mistakes to call the worst.
For a change, he might actually be right this time.
Ha, ha! Should have listened to your enemies, you egotistical SOB!
Yep, right through the floor, into the basement.
I wonder what OBama’s mother considered her biggest mistake.
Watch his words, he’s saying the “rollout” is the dismal mistake, not the actual law itself....
