Kathleen Sebelius, Health and Human Services secretary, said President Obama did not know about Obamacare website glitches before Oct. 1.

Anyone who has commanded troops knows one of two things must have occurred. Either Obama asked, “Is the Obamacare program on schedule?” and his immediate subordinates lied to him or he didn’t ask the critical question.

The first is incompetence among Obama’s immediate subordinates for which they should be fired, and the second is dereliction of duty at the presidential level for which he should be fired.

That’s what happened to several officers and sergeants during Obama’s tenure as commander-in-chief but apparently Obama sets higher standards for troops under his command than he does for himself and his political cronies.

The Obamacare glitches are a more serious failure in presidential leadership than a Marine captain who was court martialed because his troops urinated on the corpses of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.
