There is just too much ‘coincidence’ in this story…..
Toni McCall Townes-Whitley was a Black student activist at Princeton – graduating in ’85 – the same class as Michelle Robinson Obama. Suddenly she re-appears as a Vice President of Consulting Services at CGI – the Canadian company that was ‘selected’ [without a bid] to built the very complicated ObamaCare website. My, my, what a small world….
Somehow,…somebody…picked an undistinguished Canadian company with a chequered history of failing to complete IT contracts….to manage one of the biggest and most politically sensitive government IT contracts in history?
Who decided on the $678 MILLION price tag?
What qualifications even put CGI on the finalist list?
Why was there never a public bidding process announced by HHS? Was this an insider job from the get-go?
Now, with the website a catastrophic and highly public failure,…key questions surface:
In 2012, Americans with minimal computer skills could shop on-line for airline tickets, – hotel reservations, - rental cars, - books, - sports and camping equipment, – and bid successfully for stuff they spotted on eBay, – ALL with a GUARANTEE of PRIVACY!!
Yet the ObamaCare website quickly warns you – YOU HAVE NO GUARANTEE!! Why?
Was the design, development, integration, testing, roll-out, and maintenance of the website deliberately placed in unqualified and incompetent hands? If so, – WHY?
Did Obama and Sebelius maintain ANY OVERSIGHT during the three-year period?
Or did they shrug it off as an insignificant and trifling detail – best left for minions?
Was their PLAN all along that the website would FAIL – leading to the ‘necessity’ of a ‘single-payer federal medical care program’?
Was Michelle Obama key in the selection of CGI? How much influence does she exert on Obama’s decisions?
Will die-hard Democrats [aka Socialists] take an absolutist approach and say that it’s worth you making yourself vulnerable to hackers and identity thieves – so poor people can have quality health care?
Will they accept and gloss over gross incompetence by ‘their first Black president’ – as the price for finally having a Black president?
Toni McCall Townes-Whitley is a woman of some mystery. She went to Africa with the Peace Corps after college, got married and had kids, – dropped out of the work force, – got divorced and returned to work, – is / was active in Fairfax County government.
But other than skin color and being a classmate of Michelle Obama,…I could find no qualifications or background in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Web Development, Systems Engineering, – or even management of multi-million dollar projects. So what exactly are her qualifications?
If all this has you wondering about how the Obama Cartel works when the cameras aren’t there – fathom this:
On May 9th 2013, CGI Federal won a contract from HUD to administer $1.7 Billion in Hurricane Sandy relief funds… Ask the folks down on the Jersey shore if they’ve seen that money yet…
