Fineman, Ignatius: Healthcare Obama's Biggest Mistake

By Newsmax Wires   |   Monday, 05 Sep 2011 09:09 AM

MSNBC host Chris Matthews had a couple of “wow” moments when he asked guests on his show Sunday what they view as President Barack Obama’s biggest mistake.

Matthews changed things up a bit on “The Chris Matthews Show” by saying: “This week we want to do something slightly different with our "Tell Me Something" segment. Let me ask you . . . what has been President Obama’s biggest mistake in his two and a half years so far?”

The Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman replied: “Chris, on things under his control, not the wars so much because they were built in, his decision to spend all of his political capital in a year and a half of his time on the healthcare reform law I think was his biggest political mistake.”

Matthews’ response: “Wow. Smart statement.”

Then David Ignatius of The Washington Post weighed in: “I would agree with Howard. The idea of launching a major change in social legislation without having a consensus in the country and in Congress about what that should look like was a mistake. That's just not how a president makes good policy.”

Matthews’ reaction: “Wow.”
