The claim that Obamacare is being “sabotaged” is not coming, at least publicly, from the DNC or the White House. It’s coming from alleged journalists.

Dana Milbank:

Milbank: “There has been an element of sabotage in slowing these (exchanges) down, the exchanges are not working in states where there are Republican governor not participating in the exchanges. In the larger picture here, if the Republicans continue to cast doubt on Obamacare, make it look like a disaster in all areas and all its manifestations, it means the young people they need to get to enroll in the program don’t want anything to do with the disaster an it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. So there is logic to having hearings and complaining about the thing…”

Apparently Republican “doubts” forced Sebelius to botch her gazillion-dollar website. Republican “doubts” forced Obama to lie about his law for three years. Republican “doubts” are forcing insurance companies to cancel insurance, driving doctors out of practice, and making Obama’s defenders say plainly idiotic things.

Those are some strong doubts.

Fox’s Geraldo Rivera is inclined to agree:

"Sabotage" is the stock communist excuse for why communism fails. Will some Republican please cite line and verse every time the USSR blamed some crop failure or other on "sabotage" from eeeeevil counter-revolutionary capitalists? Of course not. We're the stupid party.

If the Republicans are that sophisticated why didn't they just prevent the law's passage in the first place? Or win the election in 2012?

It's kind of rich that Geraldo "Al Capone's Vault" Rivera is disbelieving the power of incompetence.

If the majority of Americans have been against Obamacare, what makes anyone think the programmers and developers are for making it work? It is easy to mess up code with a misplaced comma or decimal point. Developers aren't stupid, they can figure out that their project is designed to inflate costs and destroy private insurance.

I really don't think it is sabotage, just general incompetence and normal governing by committee efficiency. Think how hard it would be to get ten people to agree to an approach to enacting one page of the law, then multiply by 2500....

"“There has been an element of sabotage in slowing these (exchanges) down, the exchanges are not working in states where there are Republican governor not participating in the exchanges. "

The exchanges are not working in the states ... where there are no exchanges. OK, got it.

And all those young people who listen to Republicans- now there's a killer constituency.

I usually hesitate to call people stupid but this woman ...
