Krauthammer: "We're Going To Have All Hell Break Loose" If Insurers Don't Have Information On Jan 1st

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I thought one of the most telling elements of all of this was the government's own report on the website improvement which it said that the website is now going to begin operating at a private sector velocity, which was unbelievable in its irony. Here is an official government document, which is openly admitting that the privat

CNN Pundit Defends Obama: "Every President Is Going To Lie To You"

L.Z. GRANDERSON: Well, what I'm saying is that she is pretending as if once an era has happened, it's forever going to trail a president. And that just isn't true. She is living proof of that with scrubbing clean President Reagan's reputation. Now with President Obama, it is true. He should have been more forthright with how the Affordable Care

Piers Morgan: "The Perfect Barack Obama, Who's A Perfect Physical Specimen"

PIERS MORGAN: After the perfect Barack Obama, who's a perfect physical specimen to many people's eyes, does it matter? Or is actually somebody very different, someone who's much more of a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer, but appears to be a straight talker, somebody perhaps more of a straight talker than it appears Barack Obama

Gibbs: "Inexplicable" If No One Involved With Obamacare Is Fired

ALEX WAGNER: Robert, I want to ask you about a point Ben is making. I have to ask you as a communications guru, what you make of this quote from, I believe it was Jeffrey Zients. “While there’s more work to be done the team is operating with private sector velocity and effectiveness,” a statement our own Chuck Todd said is an indictment of th

ABC's Jon Karl To Carney: "Is It Mission Accomplished" For Obamacare Website?

JONATHAN KARL, ABC NEWS: In terms of the goals you set for this moment in time of the website being functional for the vast majority of users, is it mission accomplished? JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE: Well as I was saying, Jon, we were working very hard to make the necessary fixes to improve the website so that by December 1st it would function effe

Dem Rep. Ellison: Obama Meant "If You Misunderstood What I Was Trying To Say, I'm Sorry"

REP. KEITH ELLISON (D-MINN.): You know, I just want to say that I think that everything that the president said and did was in pursuit of trying to get Americans, all Americans health care. So I think even though he may have said, if you like your decent insurance, your insurance that works, then you can keep it, I think that people really get that

Cornyn: "The Current Administration Has Taken Lying To A New Level"

SEN. JOHN CORNYN (R-TX): I think the current administration the has taken lying to a new level. To me, that's the one thing that I find most aggravating about what's happening in Washington these days. Particularly about this administration. Which is a lack of accountability and the willingness to mislead people or provide them just demonstrably fa

Carney: No Updates On When Obama Will Sign Up For Obamacare

JONATHAN MARTIN, POLITICO: Has the president signed up for Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act? JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE: I don't have an update for you on that. I know that he will and has said that he will and -- the White House has said that he will, but I don't have an update. MARTIN: Do you know what he's waiting for? And when he does d

Carney vs. Ed Henry On Obamacare Website: "You're Confusing Error Messages With Queuing Messages"

ED HENRY: It sounds like you did not meet the deadline, the more I listen to your answers, because Ezekiel Emanuel said yesterday the website is working well and you say it is vastly improved. There has been significant progress. Not necessarily that it is working well and effectively for the vast majority of users, as you acknowledged with Jim and

Scarborough: Obamacare Site Like A Hollywood Set, There's Nothing Behind It

ROBERT GIBBS: There's no doubt, those that the back-end systems will continue to be a great concern. There's payment mechanisms for subsidies that I think the technical guys have said at HHS haven't even been built yet. . . . JOE SCARBOROUGH: It's a Hollywood -- he said the same thing that you [Nicolle Wallace] did. I mean, it's a Hollywood f

Sen. Menendez: Dems Will Be In "Great Position" To Tout Obamacare In 2014

JOHN DICKERSON: You used to be charged with helping get Democratic senators elected or re-elected. So, give us your political take quickly on how much of a weight the whole health care rollout and its difficulty will be on Democratic senators trying to get re-elected or trying to win office in 2014. SEN. BOB MENENDEZ (D-NJ): Well, look, I think
