Some perspective if you please:

From Dec. 7, 1941, until May 8, 1945, was three years, five months, one day. In that time, we managed to mobilize millions of people in the war effort. We built tens of thousands of tanks, subs, cruisers, flattops, guns, bombs and made millions of rounds of ammunition. In the European Theater, we turned the tide in North Africa, D-Day, The Battle of the Bulge, the race to Berlin, all the while battling Japan in the Pacific.

From March 21, 2010 — the day Obamacare became the law of the land — to Oct. 1, 2013, when it was supposed to go into operation, is three years, six months and 10 days. In that time, the Obama administration couldn’t manage to build a working website.

Not to worry, though. Our very own Sen. Angus King, an ardent supporter of Obamacare, has admitted that he is unhappy with how “screwed up” — his words — it is so far.

Further good news: King has admitted that not only he but also other supporters of the law have been “miffed” about how screwed up it is.

I can’t begin to express how comforting it is to know that.
