Obama: Always the last guy to know

American Thinker

We  learned during the Rose Garden show that ObamaCare can speak 150 languages.  Frankly, I did not know that there  were 150 languages in the US or that many constituencies in the modern “identify  politics” Democrat party. 

 We  do know that “the Spanish version” is a mess, too, according to my friends at Babalu

 We  also learned today that President Obama is always the last guy to know in this  government.

 Let’s  add another one to the growing list of things that President Obama did not  know:  



“GUPTA:  The president did say that he was angry about this. I mean, do you know when he  first knew that there was a problem? SEBELIUS: Well, I think it became clear fairly  early on, the first couple of days GUPTA: So not before that  though?  SEBELIUS: No.”


This is amazing.  Nobody told President Obama that his “signature  legislation” could run into problems.

 Apparently,  nobody told him either that the company hired to put together the website had  “a checkered past“:

 “While  the company behind the dysfunctional HealthCare.gov was virtually unknown to the  American public until this month, critics say the Obama administration should  have known this multibillion-dollar firm had a checkered history with other  government contracts.    

In  projects stretching from Canada to  Hawaii, parent company CGI Group and its subsidiaries ran into complaints about  its performance. And this was while, and in some cases before, CGI Federal was  paid millions, along with other contractors, to create the ObamaCare  website. 

“The  morning I heard CGI was behind [Healthcare.gov], I said, my God, no wonder that  thing doesn’t work,” said James Bagnola, a Texas-based corporate consultant who  was hired by the Hawaii Department of Taxation (DOTAX) in  2008.” 

 Of  course, the Democrats will tell us that “you can’t expect the president to  check out companies” or that he is not “a computer expert”.

 Nobody  is asking the president of the US to check references or understand  software. 

 All  we ask of the President of the US is to surround himself with competent people  who will implement programs and hold people accountable.

 Back  to the 150 languages, Spanish and English are down.  Wonder how the other  148 are doing?
