10 People Obama Should Fire Over


November 19, 2013

President Barack Obama has gamely acknowledged that the disaster is “on me,” and surely this is one of the more accurate assertions he’s made related to his signature health care program.

But no president could have pulled off alone. After all, as he put it, “I don’t write code.” It truly takes a team effort to come up with something so impressively catastrophic.

Indeed, this serving of Pasta Fiasco was whipped up by a cadre of chefs, toiling together in spectacular incompetence, each doing their part to create one of the greatest flops in modern political history.

Each should be marched right out of the kitchen with alacrity. But Obama, who once said during another crisis — the 2010 Gulf oil spill — that he was searching for an “ass to kick,” hasn’t really found one this time.

And yet, with respect to the creation of, there’s really no shortage of asses. Herewith, as a service to our flummoxed commander in chief, 10 candidates for the chopping block.

1. White House chief of staff Denis McDonough

This goes without saying — and actually, that’s the only reason I can think of that no one’s saying it.

Obama claims he didn’t know how badly the website would perform. And yet, given that it had failed rudimentary tests and wasn’t even close to being ready, people in the administration had to know.

It is the White House chief of staff’s responsibility to ensure the right documents and people are getting before the president — to establish a smooth process by which the president gets the information he needs.

Obamacare is the ballgame when it comes to the Obama presidency. Ensuring it was up and running right should have been McDonough’s can’t-fail mission. According to a June 20 article in Time magazine, McDonough was supposedly spending “two hours a day” on Obamacare implementation. If that’s so, it’s inexcusable that he somehow missed that the website was months from being ready — even with the current “24/7” fix-it drive — at launch time.

If Obama requires any further reason to cashier McDonough, he need only survey the wreckage of his second-term agenda and his cratering approval ratings.

We are talking gov't employees, not the real world. No one will be fired for incompetence or failure to perform. Rewarded, maybe. Fired, no

Sebelius needs to be hustled out the door without delay, and everyone in town knows it.

The White House has defended her, pointing to her earlier achievements. This is approximately like noting the sublime performances of the actor John Wilkes Booth.

Great article, snappy quotes and a good top ten list of names to fire first.  Of course none of it will come to pass, at least not before the entire health insurance business in this country goes screaming down in flames with the Obama administration leading the way.  When this thing finally hits the immovable object the sparks are going to be enormous and the casualties widespread.  None of this bodes well for January when the employer mandates all kick in, and that's when all of this will shift into overdrive.
