Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius claims in a CNN interview that Barack Obama didn't know there were issues with the Obamacare website until after October 1st. Either Sebelius is lying or Obama is a completely incompetent chief executive. This was a $500 billion website design project that would affect millions of Americans and was key to Obama's only accomplishment as President. Obama should have been asking about the status in weekly cabinet meetings and reading reports on the progress of the project. If Sebelius misled Obama in those meetings and reports, she should be fired. If Obama failed to have the meetings or read the reports, he should be fired.

Catastrophes like this are why the President should be someone with chief executive experience preferably in both business and government. If only someone like that had ran against Obama in 2012.

“We’re not at all satisfied with the workings of the website,” Sebelius said. “We want it to be smooth and easy and let consumers’ compare plans.” Keep on reading...
