A Really Interesting Exchange Occurred When NBC Reporter Pressed Obama on Whether He Still Had Confidence in Sebelius

President Barack Obama avoided providing a direct answer when he was pressed by NBC News' Chuck Todd Thursday on whether he still had confidence in Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius following the embarrassing Obamacare rollout.

"I think Kathleen Sebelius under tremendously difficult circumstances over the last four and a half years, has done a great job setting up the insurance market," Obama said. "Kathleen Sebelius doesn't write code. She wasn't our IT person. I think she'd be the first to admit, that if we had to do it all over again, that there would have been whole lot more questions that were asked in terms of how this is working."

When Obama said his current "priority" is to "get it fixed," Todd pressed further on Sebelius' credibility.

"Is she still the right person to do it?" he asked.

"Ultimately, the buck stops with me," Obama replied, avoiding the question. "I'm the president, if it's not working, it's my job to get it fixed."
