Obama discovers the culprit: Outdated government agencies!

From the WSJ (edited slightly):
President Obama has finally found someone besides Republicans to blame for the myriad failures in the rollout of his signature health-care law:  In this new version, ObamaCare is...the government's fault.  But not his.

On Thursday the president dropped by American University to be interviewed Chris Matthews, and the MSNBC host wondered who in the executive branch is responsible for the botched health-care rollout.  Mr. Obama listed a few impersonal culprits including "cynicism," "Washington gridlock" and "the management of government" but then drifted into another classic"

"The challenge, I think, that we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around White House organization," he said. "It actually has to do with what I referred to earlier, which is we have these big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly. . . . The White House is just a tiny part of what is a huge, widespread organization with increasingly complex tasks in a complex world."

So after five years as president Mr. Obama has discovered government is inefficient and wasteful--at least it is when he needs a political alibi.
I have to apologize for doing so many posts on the ghastly train-wreck that is Obamacare, but rarely have Americans had a chance to see the true fruits of socialism, statism, mismanagement and the reckless support of all three by the Lying Media.  This is truly a teachable moment for those willing and able to learn.

Sadly for our country, 45 percent or so of the electorate have no interest in learning.  Their main interest appears to be voting for the party that promises them more "free" benefits.

Back when our national debt was "only" a trillion dollars or two, the government could afford to spend a little more than it took in--at least for awhile longer.  But the current level of both the national debt and current spending is so high that it can't continue.  

And I don't mean that in a philosophical sense, as in "You can't continue to drink so much," but in the sense of "Your car is heading for a telephone pole at 70 mph and that can't continue."

Unfortunately we're all passengers in that car.
