Hume: Obama 'fix' meant to 'shift blame,' says media has turned against him -- By Jeff Poor, The Daily Caller

(text from within article)

Obama’s new maneuvers could be deeply problematic for the insurance companies as well, he said.

“I must say, Megyn, I have my doubts as to whether he can,” Hume continued. “I also have doubts as to whether this is possible. You know, we have talked about the insurance companies, unlike the Obama administration, were ready for the law to roll out. And they took all the measures the law required them to take — to participate in the exchanges, to stop selling the no longer qualifying policies and all the rest of it. And what the president is now saying, ‘Oh, oops, well you can go on doing things kind of the way you were for another year.’ Well, they are really in no position to do that.”

As far as Obama’s objectives, Hume said it didn’t appear to him Obama was looking for an actual solution, but instead for a way to avoid blame.

“[H]e’s not looking to accomplish anything,” Hume said. “He’s looking to shift blame. He doesn’t want his law, and his party and himself to be blamed for cancellation notices. So he’s created this apparent fix that says, ‘OK, folks, you really can keep your policies. Sorry about that.’ Well, you know, I’m not sure that will work. When you think about it, it shouldn’t work. It’s dishonest.”
