Wolf Blitzer attempted to explain the comments about Obamacare that caused a frenzy on Wednesday.
Blitzer was speaking about the repeated glitches in the program's website when he said the following:
"They had three years to get this ready. If they weren't fully ready, they should accept the advice Republicans are giving them, delay it for a year, get it ready and make sure it works."

Blitzer ultimately tweeted a response to the mayhem, saying he was only talking about the website:
Context matters. Earlier I said the govt shouldn't launch a website before it works. I did not express a view about the individual mandate.

Blitzer's problem was that the "advice" Republicans were giving Democrats was to delay the entire law for a year, not just the website.
