On Thursday, Obama apologized to supporters facing political pressure over what he described as the "fumbled" rollout of his signature bill.

Yes, Mr President, that surely is part of your problem but the real elephant in the room you refuse to acknowledge is The Promise. You lied. Your supporters bought into it and you made them look like fools.

The website meltdown, bad as it is, is secondary to that.

The Man-child's first and only instinct is to campaign. The first two-term President in history to have a campaign organization that's never gone away.
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.

From what I've come to understand, it was the people who stood up OFO and OFA who were the braintrust behind the Obamacare website.  Essentially, they raised so much money for Obama and connected directly with so many people they figured designing the grand website Obama wanted would be no big deal.

Another point to consider is way back in '09, Obama gave an interview where he was asked about the lack of details for any of his plans, and he essentially said that he was going to provide the vision, and the brilliant people around him would fill in the details and make things work.  An excellent example of this is Christine Romer.  She had all kinds of grand economic ideas from her extensive time in academia, but like Obama, she never actually ran anything, never produced a product or held down an actual working kind of job. 

So what Obama will really be doing is kicking these people in the butt in order to get out there and start defending him.

Indeed. Focusing on the website is majoring on the minor.

It's a disaster, to be sure, but most likely not impeachable fraud, as his BIG lie.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

Maybe he's toying in his mind to run again in 2016.

After all, isn't the pesky 22nd Amendment racist -- an attempt to prevent the first black president from fulfilling his destiny to his people?

Remember, the Constitution isn't sacrosanct -- didn't it originally condone slavery?

Thus, shouldn't the racist portions of it be ignored as unenforceable?

Obama specifically mentions implementation of the Affordable Care Act, as well as immigration reform, environmental policy, gay marriage and the minimum wage as other possible topics of conversation

Nowhere in the Constitution will you find the word slavery.  There are 4 sections which refer to it but only in ways that are subtle and the ultimate goal was extinction.  In the Constitution, importation of slaves was to have ended in 1808 though, again, the actually word slave is not used.  It was southern democrats who kept in alive with the help of some Whigs.  The Whigs and Democrats who were against slavery banded together and became the Republican party.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Another thing to take note of....have you noticed how suddenly nobody in the media or the Dhimmies is talking about "Obamacare"?  Suddenly it is "ACA" and "The Affordable Care Act"....anything except "Obamacare"....

Just the opposite, it set in motion the process for ending slavery. Article 1, Section 9 basically gave a date that the importation of slaves had to end. The 3/5ths Clause was actually put in place not to devalue the personhood of slaves, but to reduce the representation of slave states until they freed slaves. If the slaves were freed, they could count them for full representation.
