Leading by non-example – reader poll

Another of the President’s promises turns out to be mere rhetoric:

President Obama has yet to make good on the administration’s promises that he would sign up for health insurance on the new government exchanges, the White House acknowledged on Monday.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said that Obama has not signed up for Obamacare and that he did have a reason for the delay.

A reporter pressed Carney on whether the White House would make it an open-press event if and when Obama does enroll.

“I’ll get back to you,” Carney replied.

Shortly after Obama signed the new health care law in March 2010, a White House official said the president planned to walk the walk and sign up for the insurance exchanges his law created.

“The president will participate in the exchange,” an administration official told USA Today at the time.

So… nearly four years later, the exchanges have been rolled out (to great consternation), and the President “has a reason” to delay enrolling.  I ask you, dear readers, could it be because:

…Even the White House can’t get the site to load?

…The President is (rightfully) concerned about the risk of identity theft?

…He knows the site will cancel his existing insurance, even if he “likes it?”

…The entire program is meant for the hoi polloi, not the ruling elite?

What do you think?
