    This is a rush transcript from "On the Record," November 7, 2013. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

    MARTHA MACCALLUM, FOX NEWS HOST: Hello, everybody. I'm Martha MacCallum, in tonight for Greta Van Susteren.

    More on the breaking news of the president's apology tonight. That comes up in just a minute.

    But, also tonight, now even Hollywood celebrities are starting to go after ObamaCare. The rollout drama is now the target of comedy. Watch.




    JAY LENO, HOST, THE TONIGHT SHOW: How does that make Obama feel? Better off smoking crack than passing ObamaCare.



    NARRATOR: SpongeBob and Patrick visit the ObamaCare website.


    JIMMY KIMMEL, HOST, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE: Maybe SpongeBob is a Republican.

    RUSH LIMBAUGH, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: Obama and ObamaCare have become a joke.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The government believes that the fewer options you have in picking doctors and networks, the cheaper insurance will be. I frankly think it's the other way around.

    LIMBAUGH: They don't care for us. They want to control us.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They are narrowing your choices. And as a result, many will be forced to find new doctors, new hospitals, new health care providers.

    LIMBAUGH: Nobody cares as much about you as Obama and his fellow Democrats. And to prove it, they are going to coerce you into living in a way they can control you.


    MACCALLUM: The House Oversight Committee releasing documents of so-called "stress tests" done on the site, the ObamaCare site, showing it could only handle some 1100 users to date before it launched.


    REP. DARRELL ISSA, R-CALIF.: This was a failure to launch that they knew about on September 30th and went ahead anyway.

    JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: If sometimes it isn't, that means sometimes it is. And during those times, individuals are able to get information.

    UNIDENTIFIED CONGRESSMAN: When you promise, carry out your promises.

    UNIDENTIFIED CONGRESSMAN: When people make a promise they know they can't keep, that's a lot harder to forgive, the.

    SEN. JOHN CORNYN, R-TEXAS: The consequences of not telling the truth to the American people, I think, are eventually the political accountability we are going to see in 2014. That's what scares the Democrats.


    MACCALLUM: All right. So now we have this FOX News alert. President Obama tonight, just moments ago, saying that he is sorry. He apologized to Americans who have lost the insurance plans that he promised they could keep.



    BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Well, first of all, I meant what I said. And we worked hard to try to make sure that we implemented it properly. But, obviously we didn't do good enough job and I regret that.

    TODD: Do you feel like you owe these folks an apology for misleading them even if you didn't intentionally do it. At this point, they feel mislead and you see the anger that's out there.

    OBAMA: I regret very much that what we intended to do, which is to make sure that everybody is moving into better plans because they want them as opposed because they are forced into it, that, you know, we weren't as clear as we needed to be in terms of the changes that were taking place. And I want to do everything we can to make sure that people are finding themselves in a good position, a better position than they were before this law happened.

    And I am sorry that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me. We have got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and that we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this.


    MACCALLUM: Very interesting. He said I'm sorry that they didn't get what they thought they were going to get based on assurances from me. A clear reference to the promise that was made, "if you like your health care, you can keep it, period, end of story."

    Joined now by former senior advisor to President Reagan, Pat Buchanan.

    Pat, welcome. Good to have you here tonight.

    PAT BUCHANAN, FORMER SENIOR PRESIDENTIAL ADVISOR: Thank you very much. Appreciate it.
