obamaWASHINGTON, DC – You don’t need a crystal ball to tell when something is going really, really wrong in your life.

Sometimes all you have to do is show up at the White House.

The White House assembled folks from all over the country who have successfully signed up for the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Some might say these are the only ones.

That’s because the site run by the Department of Health and Human Services has so many glitches, that DHHS posted a blog over the weekend that admitted to a host of problems, from creating accounts to forms that wouldn’t take information.

And that led President Obama to state the obvious during the Rose Garden get-together.

“The problem has been that the website that’s supposed to make it easy to apply for and purchase the insurance is not working the way it should for everybody.”

Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius was on hand to show she’s large and in charge, and not taking the fall, at least right now.

Her plan is to call in the cavalry, which, in this case, will consist of some of the country’s best and brightest tech experts from inside and outside of the government to use their combined talents to fix the problems.

And that what led to the scene of a woman behind the president starting to fall over and being helped away from the group.

The president quipped that this is what happens when he talks too long. But you can bet Republicans are saying this is what happens when people learn more about Obamacare.
