Democratic Operatives, Former Administration Officials Say Obama is Not Being Well Served By His White House Staff

Obamacare rollout was a disaster

Former administration officials and Democratic operatives say President Obama is ill-served by his current White House staff and must reboot his second term team following the disastrous ObamaCare rollout.

First-term insiders argue the White House's weakness was defined by a lack of preparedness, messaging blunders and failure to keep the president informed.

They say Obama's team lacks depth after the departures of longtime advisers David Axelrod, David Plouffe, Robert Gibbs and Patrick Gaspard, and suggest new people must be brought on.
