President Barack Obama acknowledged again Friday that the White House had fumbled Obamacare’s rollout in its early days.

“When it came to the health care rollout, even though I was meeting every other week or every three weeks with folks and emphasizing how important it was that consumers had a good experience and easy experience in getting the information they need and knowing what the choices and options were for them to be able to get high quality affordable health care,” Obama said, “the fact is it didn’t happen in the first month, first six weeks in a way that was at all acceptable.”

“And since I’m in charge, obviously, we screwed it up.”
