Was this a gaff -- A truthful statement made accidentally?
It's from WSJ.com Review and Outlook column titled The ObamaCare Buck Finally Stops. Quoting Obama, to wit:
"The challenge, I think, that we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around White House organization," he said. "It actually has to do with what I referred to earlier, which is we have these big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly. . . . The White House is just a tiny part of what is a huge, widespread organization with increasingly complex tasks in a complex world."
So after five years, Mr. Obama has discovered government is inefficient and wasteful, or at least it is when he needs a political alibi.
A twofer: A gaff AND a way to dodge blame.
