Remember last week when MSNBC viewers saw a banner reading, “GOP flubs Obamacare launch“? It took him days, but today Fox News contributor Juan Williams attempted a similar leap, blaming the “excruciatingly embarrassing” rollout of the HealthCare.gov website on those darned Republicans and their “massive opposition.”
Of course, Republicans had no idea how broken the website would be since it hadn’t been launched yet, but somehow their looming presence forced the administration into rolling out an inoperable system. That and their deal to delay the rollout for a year.

@kesgardner I don't know of anyone who rushed him. Obama was the one who said it would roll in Oct come hell or high water (sic).
