Heckuva job, Obama: President excuses long list of scandals and blunders

Not sure Obama knows how to do anything without it being a blunder or a scandal.
Check it out:

The list of scandals and blunders in the Obama administration is long, but the roster of people who have been fired by President Obama for screwing up is strikingly short.

From Benghazi to the Internal Revenue Service to the Fast and Furious gun-running furor in the Justice Department, the president has been loathe to hold high-level aides accountable for major bungling.

The latest example is the president’s backing of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, whose agency mismanaged the crucial launch of the HealthCare.gov website for people to sign up for insurance under Obamacare. In the program’s first three weeks, the examples of consumers who were unable to enroll in the poorly designed system have grown exponentially, threatening the program’s long-term viability.

The cost to taxpayers has risen along with the blundering. CGI Federal, a U.S. subsidiary of the Canadian firm CGI Group, received a no-bid contract with a base value of $55.7 million in 2011 to develop the website. Since then, the potential cost has risen to $292 million, although serious problems remain.
