We found out from the media
Like everything else that has become a scandal for BO, the VA scandal was never on BO’s radar until the media broke the news. We either have the dumbest human being on earth as Preezy or, the biggest lying bunch of hacks in history running the WH. For a bunch of people who act like they have all the answers and know everything better than you or I, they certainly don’t seem to know much. VA scandal: DIDN’T KNOW Benghazi security: DIDN’T KNOW Fast and Furious: DIDN’T KNOW Lose your doctor: DIDN’T KNOW Bin Laden hit: MASTERMIND (Twitchy)
What is most surprising about the present controversy surrounding the substandard treatment at the VA, in which at least 40 veterans lost their lives while awaiting treatment, is that House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller (R-FL) had alerted the president to trouble nearly a year ago. In a letter dated May 21, 2013, Miller began:
Dear Mr. President: I am writing to bring to your attention an alarming pattern of serious and significant patient care issues at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers (VAMCs) across the country. Recent events at the Atlanta, Georgia, VAMC provide a perfect illustration of the management failures, deceptions, and lack of accountability permeating VA’s healthcare system…I believe your direct involvement and leadership is required.
So, where is BO? Attending fundraisers and golfing. Looks as if “mad as hell” means BO can schmooze, have fun, and recreate to soothe his feeeelings because ….Bush! He doesn’t want to be reminded he is CIC and is responsible to all our military, past and present, to insure they get the best of medical care after they have served our country so faithfully. This is one more scandal but, this time it will not blow over, finally a bi-partisan agreement on the horrific treatment of our Vets. BO can keep running away from this, or he can man up. Which do you think he will do?
