Obama's fundraising websites flawlessly processed millions in questionable donations; his Obamacare sites, not so much

Of President Obama's many historic firsts, his 2008 and 2012 campaign fundraising websites achieved an unprecedented level of ignominy.

In the run-up to the elections, his websites are believed to have processed tens of millions in illegal campaign contributions, including:

• "Structured" contributions to evade donation limits

• Foreign contributions

• Stolen credit cards

• Untraceable prepaid cash cards

In addition, the 2008 Obama site explicitly supported the forgery of computer (IP) addresses for said donors.

But none of that was interesting to antique media...

The federal government's red-faced CTO Todd Park says the exchange websites work fine as long as no one is using them. Yes, he really said that.

"These bugs were functions of volume,'' Park said. "Take away the volume and it works.''

I've spent decades in the software test arena --- one of our jokes is that if it weren't for all of those end users logging into the system, response time and system functionality would be fast and smooth as lightning.

Darned end users just ruin everything.
