TOM BROKAW: Well, there have been several low points, but this is certainly a low point at a critical time, coming into the 2014 elections, and a lot of Democrats beginning to bail on the idea of Obamacare. What was striking to me about that statement, "We should have been aware."
I would think, given the importance of Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act, eight months ago the president would have started every meeting with, "How are we doing? Is that going to be ready? That's going to be our big play for the second term," and demanding from Kathy Sebelius and other people who are involved in it that they were ready. And sending people over there to take a look at the rollout. That it suddenly landed the way that it did, in utter chaos, and it's not going to be an easy fix, is just inexplicable.
