Clueless or Craven? The White House
Gets the VA Story Exactly Backwards

Washington Monthly, by Phillip Longman

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/2/2014 5:03:42 AM

Sad to say, the Obama administration seems clueless about what might be broken at the VA and how to fix it. Either that, or it is just cravenly saying and doing whatever it thinks is necessary to make the story go away. Evidence for the clueless hypothesis came on Friday, when White House Deputy Chief of Staff Rob Nabors weighed in with his diagnosis (pdf) of what ails the VA. The document is extraordinary in its contradictions, sloppy formulations, and non-evidence-based conclusions. It starts off well enough by reporting “a strong sentiment among many Veterans and stakeholders that in general VA provides

Usually, the appallingly biased Washington Monthly isn´t even worth skimming over, but this piece surprised me.

When I got back from RVN in 1969, I landed at Travis AFB. To go home to Phoenix, I had to travel through the San Francisco airport in early April. Proud of my service and wearing my Class A Greens with bloused jump boots, wings and Airborne/Glider hat patch, I encountered some students, one of whom promptly called me a baby killer. I would have ended up in some San Francisco jail for assault, save the timely arrival of two similarly situated Marines (of all things) who inserted themselves and convinced me that the "hippies" weren´t worth the loss of my honor. In March 1991 I watched veterans of Desert Storm deplane in Tampa to the cheers of the other passengers. Though admittedly I was jealous, I was relieved that our country had put RVN behind us, and would honor the brave men and women who had gone into Harm´s Way to protect the rest of us. Over the the last ten years I ´d begun to suspect that much of the seemingly positive statements about veterans was insincere, and uttered by some folks, especially on the left, because it wasn´t politically wise to voice their true opinions. You understand that it means NOTHING to say that you support veterans, when you allow them to be mistreated by the Veteran´s Administration in this vile manner. Actions speak louder than words. Kippling captured the whole sick circumstance in his poem "Tommy," where the public praises soldiers when they need them, but ignores or mistreats them when they think they don´t. "For it´s Tommy this, an´ Tommy that, an´ chuck ´em out , the brute; But it´s "Saviour of ´is country when the guns begin to shoot; An it´s Tommy this, an´ Tommy that an´ anything, you please; An Tommy ain;t a bloomin´ fool - you bet that Tommy sees!!!!

It´s obvious where the writer is coming from....´Bushies.´

"he turned out to be a Republican soap and toothpaste salesman—a man with no experience whatsoever in running a health care or social services organization"

He obviously doesn´t see the irony here, as if Obama had any kind of experience to run a country. We´re seeing how that´s turning out now.

Thanks No. 1. I encountered similar treatment for several years afterward. It got to the point that I didn´t talk much about my Vietnam service unless I knew the background of who I was addressing. The welcome home parade for the Desert Storm vets was really bittersweet for me. I felt like it was my parade, too.

It is clear that behind this piece is a veiled attack on Bush and, by implicating the lame duck Obama, is giving a boost to the "golden era of the 90´s" when Clinton was president so it´s a pro-Hillary piece. All that being said, it´ is still very damning of the Obama administration and I am grateful what he bring forward. Obama has been, after all, President for the past 6 years. But then Obama comes from the seditious culture posters # 1 and # 3 discussed. I was a young boy growing up in a similar culture (politically speaking) to that of Obama´s on the upper west side of Manhattan and when people tell me today the that maltreatment of Vietnam vets "never happened" I know I can look them in the eye and tell them they are either (to quote Kipling again) "fools or knaves" I witnessed it from when I was about 5 years old to 15 years old.

Illegal aliens in this country get better treatment that our veterans who have put their lives on the line for us. Our hospitals are open to illegals but the doors are slammed shut for our vets. The money wasted in Washington DC could, no doubt, be better used than it is. The aura of corruption that permeates every agency in this country needs to be scrubbed clean. Apparently, government workers feel they are entitled to bonuses for just showing up. Can we please find honest responsible people with integrity to staff these institutions. Bureaucrats are much like politicians in that they are inclined to be self-serving. This fish has rotten from the head down. Follow the money and you will find out who is responsible.

#7, as an unemployed veteran in 2005 in California, illegal aliens were eligible for more and better bennies than I was. I sought employment outside the state and moved the following year upon finding said employment. I see now, that the illegals are getting treated better than my brothers and sisters nationwide and have to wonder, what happened to my country?

Mr. Longman seems to be stripping his gears figuring out who to blame. He first blames "the Bushies", then he blames Obama for allowing Bush´s policies viz the VA to continue.

Then he blames "the White House" for appointing a new guy, who then gets blamed for appointing the new guy, who the writer says is "...a Republican soap and toothpaste salesman—a man with no experience whatsoever in running a health care or social services organization but who happens to be a close financial backer of Republican House Speaker John Boehner."

So the new appointee AND Boehner get blamed, too.

Then the writer says that the appointment is a "cynical sellout" because he´s a Republican. Would Longman say that if the guy was a Democrat?

Unpacking this article gave me whiplash. The writer is disappointed and pi$$ed at Obama for a rash of things, including possible cravenness, a sellout, cynicism, bad choices and cowardice. He´s mad because his guy screwed up and is now making liberals look bad.

Thanks #1, I traveled the exact path and heard the jeers of the Hippies.

I have come to find that in America there are those that stand for freedom and fight to keep it and those that do not. For those that do not I have coined a phrase..."Freedom Freeloaders", those that enjoy the hard earned freedoms but would not lift a finger to keep them. Those people are the true enemies of America and I would vote to deport them to a Communinst country where they would be happy until they realized their mistake!

I hate to say this, but as a Vietnam era veteran and the daughter and wife of Vietnam War veterans, I have suspected for years that the elite, progressive and leftist community has been gagging on all the love and affection shown by the American public to our military and veterans. To me, their mantra "thank you for your service" is beginning to sound as vapid as "Have a nice day". Most of them don´t mean it, and are tired of pretending they do.

Looks to me like obama put a lot of loyal crony lefties in senior VA exec positions as reward for supporting and working for obama´s election success. Such lefties are not known for their high regard of anything military related. And so these senior execs then proceeded to up a very lucrative bonus structure and pressured their underlings to deliver numbers that achieved those bonuses for the senior execs. And the veterans be damned.

Of the countless lessons we’ve learned from liberals over the past few years, none is more critical than this: If Democrats find an issue important enough, and if doing something feels like the “right thing,” Barack Obama has the power to act without any regard for separation of powers. So what makes anyone believe that war would be any different? This week the president okayed airstrikes against ISIS targets—allying us with Assad Bashar, possibly Iran and definitely Qatar—using an unrelated 13-year old AUMF as his legal mandate. Seems like a big deal. It might even be a good idea. Yet, even

Changes to the forms required for firearms purchases asking questions about the buyer’s race and ethnicity have drawn strong reaction from gun dealers, privacy advocates and lawmakers. Form 4473, required for an over-the-counter sale by a federally-licensed dealer, now asks first whether a buyer is Hispanic or Non-Hispanic, followed by a question delving into more detailed race-based information. Critics want to know why the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives quietly made the change in 2012. Sen Roy Blunt, R-Mo., sent a letter to ATF Director Todd Jones asking why the information was being collected and whether the data had ever been

Rickie Fowler’s “USA” haircut. Oliver Brown, a sports writer at The Telegraph, wrote that Fowler’s “GI Joe-style crewcut” is “an exhibition of thuggish jingoism” that could make the biennial event “nasty.” Brown used Fowler’s haircut to draw conclusions about the fiery intentions of the entire American squad, especially its coach.

President Obama should be commended for yesterday’s air attacks against ISIS. In addition, his decision to bomb the jidhadist Khorasan group, which is believed to be plotting attacks against the West, is praiseworthy. As to this affiliate of al Qaeda, Obama seems, for once, to be acting rather than reacting. Even so, I tend to agree with Max Boot who argues that the most consequential news from the Levant yesterday is not the air attacks, but rather advances by ISIS on the ground. In Iraq, ISIS attackers in Anbar Province reportedly killed more than 300 Iraqi soldiers after a weeklong siege

The Clinton Global Initiative, which gathers in New York this week for its 10th annual meeting, has always had a Hollywood feel to it, not least because there are invariably a few celebrities invited to mingle with the corporate suits and international development worthies. This year’s batch includes actor-activists Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Ashley Judd and Eva Longoria.

WASHINGTON - A record 20 percent of adult Americans, or 42 million people, have never married, marking a U.S. demographic and social shift, according to an analysis released on Wednesday. The rise in never-married adults is caused by several factors, including later ages for marriage and more people living together and raising children outside of wedlock, the report by the Pew Research Center said. In 2012, 23 percent of men and 17 percent of women 25 and older had never been married, marking a widening gap between the sexes. In 1960, 10 percent of men and 8 percent of women had never

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy. I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean?

In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity.

After 75, Emanuel suggests, “We are no longer remembered as vibrant and engaged but as feeble, ineffectual, even pathetic.” But Emanuel is no garden-variety crackpot. Nor is he a wannabe science-fiction writer dreaming of a centrally planned planet of robust youthful humanoids.
