President Barack Obama's apology to Americans losing their health coverage under Obamacare may have actually caused him more to regret.

During an interview with MSNBC host Chuck Todd Thursday, the president said, "I've been burned already with — a website," before realizing how that sounded and correcting himself.

"The American people have been burned by — a website that has been dysfunctional," he quickly added.

The administration has promised to have the Healthcare.gov website fixed by the end of the month, and when Todd asked about the consequences of that not happening, Obama responded, "Well, that — let me just say generally — and I don't think I'm saying anything that people don't know and I haven't said before. I am deeply frustrated about — how this website has not worked over the first couple of weeks."

He continued, "And, you know, I take responsibility of that. My team take responsibility of that. And we are working every single day, 24/7, to improve it. And it's better now than it was last week. And it's certainly a lot better than it was on October 1."
