It couldn't possibly be the people in charge.
Want to know who’s responsible for the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare? Most people already know the answer to this — the people in charge — but since those are all Democrats, they have another answer. It’s not the people in charge … it’s the people that the people in charge hired, or something:
