A few quotes from the campaign Trail:
“As President, I won’t stand for hundreds of thousands of veterans waiting for benefits. We’ll hire additional claims workers. We’ll bring together veterans groups and the VA to work out a claims process that is fair and fast. And instead of shutting veterans out, we’ll make sure that our disabled vets receive the benefits they deserve, and we’ll allow all veterans back into the VA health care system. . . . We will stand with veterans in their hour of need, . .” Barack Obama 2007
“When 400,000 veterans are stuck on a waiting list for claims, we need a new sense of urgency,” said Sen Obama in 07
Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting. (Source)
Flash forward 6 years:
“I’m mad as hell” “I read about the VA issue reading the papers” “I always take responsibility, but this was an issue under my predecessor”
Then we get:
Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki is gone, but the VA scandal isn’t going anywhere.
Basically its the same democrat/Obama doctrine. Deny knowledge, Blame others, Appear Mad, accept a retirement/resignation/administrative leave of someone and let media point to something else within a day or two.
National Debt- INCREASED, Credit Rating-DOWNGRADED, Benghazi-LIES, IRS Targeting-LIES, DOJ-LIES, EPA-LIES, NLRB-LIES, Fast and Furious-LIES, Economic data-LIES, Unemployment number-LIES, Obamacare-LIES, Syria-Egypt-Ukraine-Iran-Russia-Afghanistan-Iraq-POLICY FAILURES, Marine held in Mexico-INACTION, Illegal Immigration-IGNORING LAWS and SUING STATES THAT ENFORCE LAW, Over reaching-Executive orders, Veterans Memorials Shut down, V.A SCANDAL …etc…
But hey, Obama is the best POTUS ever because He ignored DOMA and eliminated DADT!!!!…
But here’s the kicker, I don’t fault Barack Obama for this, I knew what he was and who he was before he became president. How did I know, you ask? Well, I’m an INFORMED VOTER. I did my research and I found something odd, Obama never ran anything and voted present or didn’t vote when he was a senator on every tough vote. So how is he to run a nation? That requires the ability to see all sides of an issue and make a decision. The VA is the best example of how Obama and his defenders view America.
Obama is far from the first President to have a government shut down. He is the first to deny veterans entrance to memorials in their honor. That should tell you how really feels about veterans. Then throw in the VA scandal now and it should be evident what kind of man he is.
I fault the mainstream media, I fault the Press corps in the white house. I fault the CBS/NBC/ABC and CNN’s I fault the racist people who insist that Barack Obama get a pass because of his skin color. I fault those democrat elites who refuse to hold Barack Obama to the same standards as they held every other president in the history of this nation.
The media has took it upon itself to provide cover for their poster child for affirmative action. If Barack Obama were a white democrat, the press would be relentless in holding him accountable for everything mentioned above. They would do it in a very polite manner compared how they treat a Republican in office, but they’d be much more alive in investigation.
CNN actually broke this VA scandal wide open, but only after they prefaced most of their stories with “This was an issue under George Bush” which takes away from the sting that should be felt by dear leader. Obama had 6 years to fix what he campaigned about being broken. He never has mentioned it since.
My feeling is that Obama is shielded from information so he has deniability, he is not told what is really happening because all he sees in MSNBC newscasts..
The VA scandal is bad, but a resigning General isn’t the problem, the problem is from Obama and the democrat/RINO party to the media elites…
GOD BLESS OUR VETERANS, because its obvious our leadership doesn’t.
