Conflicting accounts of when
Obama learned of VA problems

Washington Times, by Ben Wolfgang and S.A. Miller

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 5/20/2014 11:05:38 PM

With criticism and anger mounting on both sides of the aisle, the White House on Tuesday struggled to explain exactly when President Obama learned of lengthy wait times and false reporting at Veterans Affairs health care facilities but defended its larger effort to improve care for the nation’s veterans. A day after claiming the president learned from TV news reports of accusations that as many as 40 veterans died while waiting for treatment at a Phoenix VA hospital, White House press secretary Jay Carney said the burgeoning scandal is “not a new issue” to Mr. Obama. “The president, as we

He either didn´t know about it, meaning he doesn´t know what´s going on. Or he knew about it and did nothing. This is the closest thing to a dilemma he´ll ever have.

Two months from now, any mention of it will be called a Republican attack and not serious.

There´s a black hole in the White House memory banks. They remember everything in the press up until Nov 2008 and then everything the MSM reported last week. Every thing else is blank.

Answer: 2008, when then-Senator Obama made a speech on the Senate floor denouncing the poor treatment, long wait times, and inferior service that the VA was providing to our veterans. He even had a nice (likely fake) story of a disabled vet from NC who was so frustrated that he could not get even a medical appointment that he committed suicide.
Fixing the VA was a plank in his 2008 platform.
What a lying sack of dog dirt

Throwing more money at the problem will not fix it. It is the bureaucracy and the attitude of willful neglect. Government is busy but it never gets anything done. Problems like this start from the top. For far too long, our veterans have been given the bums rush.

Obama was giving lip service with his promises to take care of our veterans. Like every other issue, Obama´s first priority is political. It was a sound bite, nothing more. Otherwise, he would have made sure that he put someone on the problem from day one.

War produces horrific injuries and the fact that the powers that be could not anticipate the care they would require is an indictment on them. When you send young men and women to fight you´d better be prepared to deal with the consequences. Turning a blind eye results in exactly what is happening today. This is the direct by-product of big government. The employees number one concern is making big government look good. Anyone who had a hand in the changing the stats or knew the stats were bogus needs to be fired immediately. Obama as CIC needs to be held responsible, but that will never happen. He will come out like a drama queen to express his outrage but responsibility for this will never be assigned to him. The buck never stops at Obama´s desk.

Government control of one´s medical life is terrifying, if one has the presence of mind to really think about it.
The horrifying breakout of needless veteran GI delays and deaths will help the dumbest, most dependent demoRats to see that Obamacare is NEXT, on a much bigger, monstrous, inhuman scale! Obamacare Jihad terrorism. Both VA and Obamanightmare must be eliminated now before more die.

And now he´s meeting at 10am with Shinseki and ´´stepping up´´ his response. Typical coming from the nation´s commanding performance artist. He´s made himself scarce on this one, seeing which way it develops or goes away. Apparently the faux firing of the VA second in command did not make it go away. So since it´s growing daily, now he´s ´´handling´´ it as yet another scandal, not actually dealing with it and solving it. Same as IRS scandal, as just one example. Initially there he expressed his ´´anger´´ over the situation and called it ´´unacceptable´´ which was of course meaningless. As he waited it out and stonewalled it, it became not even a ´´smidgen´´.
Sickening, just sickening.

FTA: Mr. Carney told reporters. “So no, this is not a new issue to the president. That’s why he has been focused on it since he’s been president.”

Focused? F.O.C.U.S.E.D.???? Focused like a laser? Since 2008?

This gives us a pretty good idea of what strength Obumbler´s ´focus´ has. It couldn´t set fire to a piece of dry paper.

And if he´s getting his ´news´ from the MSM, it´s no wonder he doesn´t know what´s going on. They don´t report anything that might reflect poorly on The Won. We thought he knew that.

If he wants to get his news promptly and accurately, let him become an Ldotter. Ms. Lucianne will fast give him what is known in the vernacular as "a snootful".

The problems with the VA is just the tip of the iceberg that is the federal government. I´m a retired government worker (I worked in calibrating and repairing very expensive electronic test equipment) and I can tell you that the majority of the government is filled with people that have created their small circle of influence and will fight to the end to protect their turf. Add in the good pay, great benefits, a tremendous retirement and you have something that most of the work for doesn´t have. And they don´t want to loose it. What is happening in the VA is happening in every agency of the federal government. Even the one (DOD) that I worked for. And Obozo isn´t going to do much of anything about it. It´s been going on for many decades now and the entire system is so entrenched and corrupt that nothing short of a complete revamp of the government (read revolution) is going to change it very much. American is going to have to wake up and smell the coffee. Sooner or later, the gravy train is going to have a tremendous wreck and all the freebies are going to be gone.

In the foyer of the Central Intelligence Agency’s headquarters, there is a marble wall covered in stars. They are carved divots that represent those who have fallen in the service of the CIA. Below them, jutting out from the polished rock, is a black book entombed in a case of glass and steel. The book is a guide to the stars, giving the names of some of those who died and withholding the names of others. On the pages of the CIA’s Book of Honor are 107 hand-drawn stars organized by the years those officers died. For 2007, there is

SO FAR Hamas’s military campaign against Israel has been a dismal failure. Thanks in part to Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system, some 1,200 rockets fired at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other cities have caused only one Israeli death and a few other casualties. Attempted commando attacks via the sea and a tunnel were stopped short, and a drone that ventured into Israel was quickly shot down. Yet Hamas on Tuesday rejected an Egyptian cease-fire proposal that was supported by Western governments and the Arab League and had been accepted by Israel. Why would Hamas insist on continuing the fight when

Sarah Palin is right about impeaching President Obama. No, not that the president should be impeached. But Palin is correct in arguing that, for those who assert that Obama has grievously abused his executive authority, impeachment is the proper course of action. Of course this won’t happen, for the obvious reason that this tactic didn’t go so well for Republicans last time. Hence House Speaker John Boehner’s curt dismissal of Palin’s call for impeachment: “I disagree.” Boehner’s alternative — a lawsuit — offers the political benefits of draining impeachment fever from the more rabid Republican precincts while rallying the base

Israel’s pledge to intensify its military operation in the Gaza Strip could hasten the moment when the Obama administration will be forced to decide whether to use its leverage to corral its closest ally in the Middle East. Israeli officials, in a series of television interviews, statements and social-media venues, said Tuesday that Hamas’s rejection of a cease-fire offer validated the force it has used over eight days of conflict and made legitimate their argument for a wider military effort. The Obama administration appeared to accept that rationale, blaming the armed Islamist movement in Gaza for missing an opportunity to

The Pew Research Center, a subsidiary of The Pew Charitable Trusts, has the means to sample opinion with unique frequency and on a major scale. It has used its funds to track Muslim attitudes toward Islamism in general, toward specific terrorist groups in particular, and also toward suicide bombing over the past decade. The most recent study, “Concerns about Islamic Extremism on the Rise in Middle East,” released on July 1, conducted among 14,244 respondents in 14 countries between April 10 and May 25, 2014, holds much interest.

President Obama told guests at the White House’s annual Iftar dinner tonight that “further escalation” in the Middle East “benefits no one, least of all the Israeli and the Palestinian people.” Faced with criticism from some Arab and Muslim activists who think he has been too friendly toward the Israeli side, Obama addressed the conflict near the end of his comments, which largely honored “the traditions of one of the world’s great faiths.” “For all of us, whatever our faiths, Ramadan is a reminder of just how much we share.

Four out of five illegal immigrants seeking driver’s licenses under a new D.C. law have failed a written knowledge test — a rocky start to a program that in its first two months has issued 268 licenses, according to city officials. The failure rate of 80 percent compares with a 58 percent failure rate for people seeking traditional driver’s licenses, the Department of Motor Vehicles told a D.C. Council committee. In addition, a check of the DMV website this week shows a massive backlog in appointments required to apply for the District’s “limited-purpose license.” The first available date for an

President Obama has described his foreign-policy doctrine as an attempt to hit singles, doubles and the occasional home run. But at this stage of the game, it looks as though he has popped out, grounded into a double play and been hit by a pitch. His attorney general, Eric Holder, said Sunday that the threat of undetectable explosives from Syria is “more frightening than anything” he has experienced in office. And the Wall Street Journal ran a front-page article Monday reporting that “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s” and that “U.S. global

Ponder for a minute what AFSCME has done. The union has severed ties with the United Negro College Fund because the Koch brothers contributed $25 million to the fund. Or rather, because the fund accepted the contribution. The money will pay for 3,000 scholarships and other needs. To read about this episode, go here. The hatred whipped up against the Koch brothers has become nearly frightening, I think. It is undemocratic, unsettling, intolerant. I’ve never liked it when left-leaning types say, “So-and-so scares me,” or, “This scares me.” There was a bumper sticker in the 2000s that said Bush Scares

Maybe it is time for a shake-up. President Obama’s second-term staffing was always going to be a risk. He abandoned his first term’s team of rivals for a closer-knit team of loyalists. The bet was that he was assured enough in the job to no longer need the in-house challenge — and that smooth-running consensus would compensate for the loss. The bet isn’t paying off. Overseas and at home, the administration seems besieged and befuddled. Obama is in danger of cementing an image of haplessness that would be hard to undo. The administration was surprised when Russian President Vladimir Putin

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
