Fmr. Clinton Lawyer: Obama Needs To Fess Up Because He’s Hurting Dems

‘It wasn’t explained well. Now we just have to acknowledge that, which is crisis management Rule 101, and fix it’

DAVIS: "Look, in the world of crisis management, facts that are in front of your face have to be admitted to. President Obama and all Democrats should say 'we support this act', which I do. We messed up in explaining it. We oversimplified. We should have told people you might have to change plans to increase your coverage, and that's going to cost you more. That was a mistake. We need to fix it."
HASSELBECK: "Why hasn't that happened yet?"
DAVIS: "Well, it's hard to admit mistakes when you're in the middle of a campaign. You're oversimplifying that you shouldn't loose your policies because that's the act's objective . But the way it turned out, regulations were written imposing costs that insurance companies say you're going to have to pay more to keep your policy. It wasn't explained well. Now we just have to acknowledge that, which is crisis management rule 101, and fix it."
