Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said goodbye to the White House on Friday, smiling and laughing during the press conference announcing her departure.

President Obama praised Sebelius for her tireless efforts to promote Obamacare and “turning the corner” when the healthcare.gov website failed.

“Of course, what Kathleen will go down in history for is serving as the secretary of Health and Human Services when the United States of America finally declared that quality affordable health care is not a privilege but it is a right for every single citizen of these United States of America.”

Administration staffers gave Sebelius a standing ovation as she took took the podium with Obama during a Rose Garden ceremony at the White House.

Obama thanked Sebelius for her service and said that she had earned the right to leave, although he would miss her her advice, friendship, and wit.”

She got sacked. I read something that Obama said. I’ll try and find it.

I suspect she tendered her resignation last fall, but was not allowed to quit. That would have made for bad optics.

Better to wait until they declare “victory” and then kick her incompetent wrinkled ass to the curb.

She left HHS and the US health system in a complete shambles.
Good Job Kathy! Very well done indeed! Exceeded expectations by far. Your leader is proud.

Great pic on FoxNews website. Sibelius is positively giddy with happiness and the nominee looks like she just ate a shite sandwich.

“I suspect she tendered her resignation last fall, but was not allowed to quit.”

In “normal times” I would say you are absolutely right. And you might be right. Even probably right.

But this administration is so disconnected from reality and the consequences of their actions that Sebillius may in a time of her own choosing — however unlikely that sounds to rational thinkers like you and me.

Ever since FDR, regardless of which party controls the WH, the FIRST thing every cabinet secretary does immediately after being confirmed by the Senate is to submit an UNDATED, signed, letter of resignation to the president.

I can't recall the exact circumstances, but I believe it was during FDRs 2nd term that he wanted to fire some cabinet head, but the guy wouldn't quit..This way..the WH can pull the trigger if the person won't play ball..

I wonder if Scott Pelley’s joke of a news cast will even report this tonight. Probably not, he gave this breaking news one line and 3 seconds 15 minutes in to his crappy show last night so he probably feels it’s “old news” not worth reporting because it will shed light on the failed obamacare program.

A friend of mine in college wrote a 13-page short story that ended with the words, “And suddenly, the fourteenth page went blank.” (Flip the page, there it is — a blank page 14.)

He was trying to be funny, though. Sebelius wasn’t. She’s just a moron.

Agreed. But have you ever been talked into something and when it happens you realize you just did the stupidest thing that you have ever done. That is her in that picture.

I watched one minute of this ridiculous press conference before I had to change the channel. All the laughing and applauding was more then I could stomach. It reminded me of the musicians playing on the deck of the Titanic as it sunk into the ocean. Reality means absolutely nothing to these fools.

My pet name for her is Kathleen Sebaceous, reminding me of that swollen sac of cheese puss sometimes growing under one’s skin. She’s exactly that, the hagged out evil crone.

I only hope she someday succumbs to the healthcare delivery system she helped shackle this country with. I avidly hope! I hope she gets sent home with ‘one of those pills’.

Since Zer0 has never had a job in his life where people actually report to him, he has no clue how to fire a totally incompetent boob!

Sibelius cost the country about 1 billion in wasted computer code, had no idea how to manage the project, stood aside as some adults were called in to save the project, and acted as a toadie in covering up all the problems.

That’s grounds for firing!

But, Zer0 has no idea how to fire anyone as incompetent as himself, so we have a rose garden photo-op praising the departing idiot!

Stupid is as stupid does!

Her departure can now be used in the coming Jay Carney press conferences:

” We don’t know how she arrived at the 7M signups figure”

“We only communicated the information given to us by the former HHS, that 7M had signed up.”

“I wish we could question the former HHS about the huge difference in sign up numbers”

The stupid, fake “Oh, I am so surprised to see them” pointing job the Clinton’s always did. Probably makes an entire section of people turn around to see who points back. And no one ever does. The invisible BFF.
