    Is anyone else more concerned that a random helpdesk person is more willing to tell the truth in a straightforward manner, with her job literally on the line, than the President?

    If the president were a little more honest with the American people, perhaps media members wouldn't be turning to helpdesk people for that information in the first place.

    True, but I would never expect any politician to tell the truth if it paints them in an unflattering light.

    Any you're forgetting who her employer is. She was a public servant. She didn't work for Obama. She worked for you and I. I don't know about you but I don't have much sympathy for the minister of propaganda.

    Next stop, reeducation camps.

    Obama should put all his rules into an easily searchable and easy to understand format. Perhaps a little red book with all the answers would work....
    Idiotic. I actually do work at an answering service and we have an account that answers questions about the Healthcare exchange. I would have taken Hannity's call and done the exact same thing as this woman did. In the answering service business the ONLY calls that we are not allowed to take are telemarketers. Otherwise we take and answer ALL calls regardless if its the media or not. Its how the company makes money...answering calls and doing what the instructions tell us to do.

    It is obvious to me that this woman was fired because it happened to be Hannity that called. I would bet that if it was from some other non-conservative media we'd never have heard of this because she wouldn't have been fired.

    Actually you are incorrect. I work in the answering service industry and in my company she would not have been fired for simply answering questions that she was SUPPOSE to answer no matter who called.

    At this point, that's a reasonable expectation

    Actually I think she has a case against them if she wished to pursue it and I'm sure there are some attorneys wanting to make a name for themselves waiting in the wings to do just that.

    After all if the government contractor failed to train the operators in how to conduct calls from the media and failed to recognize the potential of such calls occurring due to all the interest being shown in the media over Obamacare. We shall see.......

    Except that is not what happened here. She answered the questions put to her by Hannity, none of it negative...unless that was in her script. When answering calls in an answering service company you have a script which you must follow. If the answer to the question that the caller asks isn't in that script then you tell them that you "are not sure" or "don't know" and then tell them that you can get them the answer (either in a few minutes or can have someone call them back).

    It is when you don't follow the script that you can get fired. And from the evidence that I have available she did just fine. Even if she had messed up on the script bit they usually give you a few chances before firing you as they attempt to train you further to make sure you get it right. This process can take 3-4 months before they fire you.
