    Exclusive: Obama personally apologizes for Americans losing health coverage

    In an exclusive interview with NBC's Chuck Todd President apologized that some Americans have lost their health insurance plans. Will this be enough to satisfy his haters out there? Of course not. A short video at Exclusive: Obama personally apologizes for Americans losing health coverage - U.S. News


    President Obama said Thursday that he is "sorry" that some Americans are losing their current health insurance plans as a result of the Affordable Care Act, despite his promise that no one would have to give up a health plan they liked.


    "I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me," he told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House.


    "We've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this."


    For more from President Obama's interview with Chuck Todd tune in to NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams at 6:30 pm ET.

    I thought infomercials weren't allowed on DP. Do I at least get a Sham-Wow with this?

    Well, credit for admitting it, but that doesn't really fix anything now does it Mr. Obama?

    Not good enough. Is he sorry he lied, sorry he got caught in the lie and no one will accept his constant efforts to shift blame, or sorry he didn't listen when he was told time and again that this would happen? If he's so sorry then join the republicans in nuking this nightmare before it becomes unnukable.

    I see today that even left wing stalwarts like The Atlantic have joined in the complaints.

    With Obama's apology and $2.39, you can get a cup of coffee at the bagel shop.

    This man, who I voted FOR in 2008, is a shady character. This is too little, too late.

    2012 was the first time in my life I voted 3rd party. I wept with joy the night Obama was elected in 08. I've been a Civil Rights and Gay Equality advocate (putting my money where my thoughts are) and I was so proud of America and Obama. Not any more. He's a sneak and a blamer.

    I just hope the GOP will drop their war on civil rights and bring value to the table. I like Christie - a lot. But we'll see....

    I'm not sold on Christie; but then again I really don't know much about him.
    I will NOT vote for Hilary - her lies about Libya (Bengazi/Viagra rape); and her general neoconish ways..no way.

    I'm all about stopping our "dizzying interventionism" overseas, but your domestic goals are laudable.
