Competence, incompetence and the Obama administration
USA Today nails it:
President Obama’s chief technology adviser, Todd Park, blames the unexpectedly large numbers of people who flocked to Healthcare.gov and state websites. “Take away the volume and it works,” he told USA TODAY’s Tim Mullaney.
That’s like saying that except for the torrential rain, it’s a really nice day. Was Park not listening to the administration’s daily weather report predicting Obamacare’s popularity?
Park said the administration expected 50,000 to 60,000 simultaneous users. It got 250,000. Compare that with the similarly rocky debut seven years ago of exchanges to obtain Medicare drug coverage. The Bush administration projected 20,000 simultaneous users and built capacity for 150,000.
That’s the difference between competence and incompetence.
Yup … and all we’ve seen, for years with this current administration, is exercises in incompetence.
I remember when the word of the day for Democrats during the Bush years was “incompetence”. They had to work very hard to try to sell it.
Well, the sales job now would be a walk in the park. Except the parks are closed.
Incompetence – look in the dictionary and you’ll see this administration depicted.
Worst. Governance. Ever.
And that covers a lot of territory.
