White House in Crisis Mode

President Obama's anger, "described by a White House that has repeatedly sought to show that the president was unaware of the extent of the website's problems, has lit a fire under the West Wing staff," the New York Times reports.

"Senior aides are racing to make sure the website is fixed by the end of the month as they confront the political fallout from presidential promises, now broken, that all Americans who liked their existing health care plans could keep them... Inside the White House, there is anxiety that if the health care problems are not righted, they could imperil the rest of Mr. Obama's presidency, especially as criticism grows that the president misled consumers about the plan."

Michael Tomasky: "The Obamacare website situation is bad--but it's not a make-or-break moment for this presidency. It's just another round of the media's trumped-up crises."
