BOSTON » President Barack Obama says he "not happy" about the problems with his health care website and takes "full responsibility" for resolving the issues.

Obama is speaking in Massachusetts, which has a state law that was the model for the federal health care overhaul. The president cited early problems with the Massachusetts law as he tried to lower expectations for the initial enrollment in the federal system.

The president says eventually the HealthCare.gov website will be the easiest way to sign up for insurance.

The Massachusetts law was signed by former Gov. Mitt Romney, who lost to Obama in last year's November election. Obama says Romney "did the right thing" on health care.

Hey, don't blame Obama. He did not know about problems with the AHC Act roll out, just like he did not know about the Fast and Furious gun running to Mexico, just like he did not know about security problems in Benghazi, just like he did not know about the IRS targeting conservative groups, just like he did not know anything about anything his administration has done. The guy suffers from “Three Money Syndrome,” hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.

I'm confused why you are saying not to blame Barry. Did he not say in the article that he takes "full responsibility" or is that sarcasm?

He was also "not Happy" about the Secret Service prostitution, and also "not Happy" about the Las Vegas parties for the Budget Bureau, also "not Happy" about the couple who walked in on a State Dinner. He's in trouble, no more Bush!!!!

To me, Congress rushed into this. Most did not take the time to read this huge project thru before passing it. Were they pressured into it? Most likely. This is the result of poorly planned projects. What a sad state of affairs.

I don't know if they tested and re-tested the system prior to going live, it's a basic step before launching something to the public. I guess he can't blame the Republicans for this comedy of errors. Millions paid to programmers and they didn't come thru. I wonder if each department can communicate with each other since they probably use different systems.

I like how all of these politicians say they take full responsibility and then don't.
