This thing is an unmitigated disaster and he wants Republicans to not say anything about it?

HAMPTON, Va. — Bill Clinton expressed confidence Sunday that the Obamacare web site problems will get fixed soon, and he lit into Republicans for being so critical of the law’s implementation.

“The computer deal will get fixed up. Don’t worry about that,” he said at a nighttime rally here for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe, his third stop of the day.

The former president then recalled the problems implementing the now-popular Medicare Part D in 2006. […]

“But our side, we’re not so ideological,” said Clinton. “So, instead of bashing them and screaming about how incompetent they were, most of our people just tried to help people understand the law and make it work and then wait for it to get fixed.”

He tried to link it to a broader criticism of McAuliffe’s Republican opponent.

“There’s a big difference in being an ideologue and being practical,” said Clinton, “putting people first as opposed to some abstract philosophy first.”
