Obama defends healthcare.gov fiasco: "nobody is more frustrated... than I am"

President Obama downplayed the problems plaguing his signature achievement Obamacare Monday at the Rose Garden.

"There's no sugarcoating it. The website has been too slow, people have been getting stuck during the application process. And I think it's fair to say that nobody is more frustrated by that than I am - precisely because the product is good, I want the cash registers to work. I want the checkout lines to be smooth. So I want people to be able to get this great product."
