In the days leading up to the Oct. 1 launch of HealthCare.Gov, President Obama says he didn’t know just how faulty the site would be.

He told reporters Thursday that, had he known of the rampant glitches and crashes that have plagued Obamacare’s central hub, he wouldn’t have promoted it so heavily.


“I was not informed directly that the website would not be working the way it was supposed to. I’m accused of a lot of things. I don’t think I’m stupid enough to go around saying this is going to be like shopping on Amazon or Travelocity a week before the website opens if I thought that it wasn’t going to work,” Mr. Obama said during a press conference at the White House. “Clearly we, and I, did not have enough awareness about the problems with the website.”


Good grief I should have watched the presser. I read he said this , just didn't believe it. I hope they replay in on cspan.

He's selling himself short.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Coincidentally, Sec State Kerry just said yesterday, "......I don't think we're stupid....", in speaking about Iran meetings.

I doubt Neville Chamberlain was that stupid, either.  By the way, wasn't it after the 1st debate with Romney that Obama thought he had clearly won?  That shows his delusional abilities.

To paraphrase Caddyshack, don't kid yourself, you're incredibly stupid.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

The sad thing about the stupid is that many times they are too stupid to know that they even are stupid.
