President appears to have flimsy grasp of the steering wheel

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified on Capitol Hill Wednesday on the difficulties plaguing the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

It is laughable that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius could say President Obama didn’t know about problems with the Obamacare website before it was launched. One of Obama’s main jobs is to be informed in order to make key decisions. He has entire agencies and personnel tasked to make sure he is informed. Everywhere he goes, communications equipment follows him to make sure he has the latest information.

But somehow, some way, he was in the dark about the problems with the $400 million Affordable Care Act website?

From the National Security Agency spying on Americans, to the IRS Tea Party scandal, to Benghazi, to the “Fast and Furious” gun-selling to Mexican drug cartels, the American people are sick and tired of hearing that our commander in chief didn’t know.
