Kathleen Sebelius: "I apologize" for Obamacare website

A stunning admission from Vice President Joe Biden today. Even the White House couldn't log on to the Obamacare website.

"The president tried to get online and my daughter tried to get online. I did not, because it was clear that I wasn't getting online," Biden told HLN.

Yet, on the plus side, the president did step up and take responsibility for the website fiasco.
Well, for some of it at least.

"There's no denying it, right now the website is too slow, too many people have gotten stuck, and I am not happy about it, and neither are a lot of Americans who need healthcare, and they're trying to figure out how they can sign up as quickly as possible. So there's no excuse for it and I take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed ASAP," Pres. Barack Obama said.

But he left out one important point. He's taking responsibility for fixing it.
Not for breaking it.

He left that task to his Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, who faced a three and a half hour public grilling on capitol hill.

    Another Fall guy, or gal, to take the blame for Obama. I have to hand it to these democrats, when it comes to screwing the country, they stay as loyal to each other as the Roman Legions. At least they care about something.
