    “We are now able to process nearly 17,000 registrants per hour, or five per second, with almost no errors,”
    per hour, not per day.

    Though they say they are 'able to', not that they are.

      17,000 per hour if no one was using the site at that rate?  It seems reasonable, especially given anecdotal evidence around the blogosphere.  Once again I think the Republicans have shot themselves in the foot with all the hype- each step of the ACA rollout has been met with hysterical overreaction, and each moment of reality has made them less effective.  

      I think the media is hyping itself into deeper levels of irrelevance as well.  The smart thing to do is let this unfold, let it win on it's own merits.  This isn't a movie release that has one weekend to set it's success or failure.  

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.

        You design a car to be able to have some top speed. You know what that speed is before you road test the car.

          The site may have been designed for 40,000 an hour and couldn't perform at that rate, right?  We don't know.  We don't know if 17,000 is rigorously documented.  I'm saying more and more people are reporting success with the site and that's encouraging news.

        Things will get better. The word will get out. More and more people will sign up. And then the media will have to calm down. They have really begun to get on my nerves with the constant harping on the same thing hour after hour.

        And of course the republicans already look like a bunch of stark raving lunatics.

        So that will be fine.

        Facts matter. Joe Biden
