Kathleen Sebelius: I 'made some mistakes'
Politico ^ | June 27, 2014 | By NATALIE VILLACORTA

Former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius acknowledged Friday that she made mistakes leading up to the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, worrying too much about whether there’d be a market for Obamacare and spending “too little time clearly on the technology side.”

“I sure made some mistakes along the way in terms of focusing on some things and not on others,” she said at the Aspen Ideas Festival.

Not to worry, ma’am. Your mission to destroy the American health care system was a resounding success.

Yeah. Probably so but they were just smidgens. Ask Race Card Boy.

Translation: Obamacare is good, but we failed to take into account the lack of cooperation we should have expected from the knuckle dragging neanderthals amongst us.

In the real world, a real company would be punished by going out of business and sparing consumers from further criminal ineptitude.

In Ubamaworld, however, the government just gets to charge you more to make up for their criminal ineptitude.

Has a focus group put out the word that contempt and arrogance toward the ‘little people’ by liberal elites has lost it’s charm?

That is the surprising thing. Normally, IT just happens.

Lock a few programmers, sys admins a DBA or two in a room for six months or so, and when one finally opens the door, out pops a brand new functioning web site.

At least that is what they said at the White House.

The recipient of the “Special Kind of Stupid” award claims “I made some mistakes” ... surely she shouldn’t downplay the greatness of her actions.

Kathleen Sebelius walks onto the stage followed by a single spotlight. She pulls a stool up close to the side of a grand piano and puts a glass of Jack Daniels on the piano. She pulls out a pack of cigarettes, lights one, takes a deep drag and lifts her head and slowly exhales the smoke. The piano player plays one note. She starts to sing.

“Regrets.
I’ve had a few.
But then again,
Too few to mention.
I screwed it up.
It was all a big lie.
People are suffering.
But I’m not in detention.

Yes, there were times
I’m sure you knew.
When I bit off
More than I could chew.
But through it all
When there was doubt.
I ate it up
And had to pout!
The record shows
Slick Willy took the blows,
But I did it for pay!”

What exactly is the “Aspen ideas festival”?
Is that where these proggs go to cook up new plans to destroy our country? If that is what this festival is for then it is a rousing success.

“...spending too little time on the technology side...”

Hee hee ho-di-ho. Tech expert Sibellius should have spent more time on the technology side. Righto - that would have created even more chaos. Is she trying to impersonate Laurel or Hardy?

She was one big mistake in the nation’s eyes, but a howling success in Obama’s eyes.

“Kathleen Sebelius: I ‘made some mistakes’ “

As people age they understand they’re going to meet God, and they tend to reflect on what that accounting will look like...

She tried to kill a 10 years girl. Congress had to intercede to stop the murder.

I’m marveling at how stupid you’d have to be to invite Kathleen Sebelius to speak at an “Ideas Festival.”

She probably got paid for it, too.

“I sure made some mistakes along the way”?
Sure, tell it to St. Pete at them pearly gates baby.
And how many dead babies are you responsible for Ms. Sebelius?
