With Friends like These

Ezra Klein gives Five thoughts on the Obamacare disaster, and they are devastating considering the source: one of the administration's greatest boosters. His assessment of how bad the website is working and of how bad a job the administration did of building it and keeping tabs on how it was going is just about as bad as it gets. No defenses comparing it to the Bush administration's role out of the prescription drug benefit. They screwed up and covered up, lying to everyone, even themselves. As to the President's defensive strategy of comparing it to the glitches in the new iPhone he says, "Can you imagine how many people Steve Jobs would have fired by now...?"
