Obamacare Conference Call Spoiled by Website Failure

President Barack Obama held a conference call Monday meant to whip up support for Obamacare, but many supporters who logged onto the Organizing for Action website to listen in experienced technical problems instead of the President's inspiring words.

As reported by The New York Times, many of the people who logged in found error messages telling them that a "connection failure" had occurred.

While the call continued, the chatroom board began to fill up with complaints by OFA fans hoping to hear their leader speak.

One chatroom visitor asked if everyone was getting the "reconnecting message"? Another complained, "I can't hear any audio." Still another screamed in all caps, "WHERES THE SOUND YO?"

The most pointed chatroom posting reportedly read, "Don’t tell me there are troubles with this live event like there were with the Obamacare website!"

OFA representatives claimed that the "vast majority" of the visitors to the website were able to hear the president, though they did not state how they knew that. OFA officials claimed that some 200,000 people signed on to hear the President speak.

Organizing for Action is the non-profit remnant of Obama's re-election campaign, Obama for America.

Somehow this seems totally predictable and apropos for the situation. :silly:
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
