Al Hunt: Obama Is Too Insecure To Seek Help From Outsiders

'I thought when Barack Obama was elected in ’08, this was a really secure man. The mark of secure people—Ronald Reagan was a secure man—they turn to outside people'

MSNBC Guest: Obama Not ‘Secure’ Enough to Seek Help Beyond Inner Circle (Mediaite)

Bloomberg columnist Al Hunt appeared on Morning Joe Thursday morning to diagnose the Obama administration’s inability to successfully construct the Affordable Health Care federal exchange website, which he said was due to a crippling “insularity.”

“‘Insularity’ is the byword of this administration, and it has become more so,” Hunt said. “Jeff Zeintz could have run [the website]. Steven Rattner, who did a fabulous job with the automobiles, could have run it. But they don’t turn to outside people, because they are so insular.”

“I thought when Barack Obama was elected in ’08, this was a really secure man,” Hunt continued. “The mark of secure people—Ronald Reagan was a secure man—they turn to outside people.”
