Thoughts on Obama’s VA Press Conference

By on 5.21.14 | 10:11PM

President Obama has proclaimed he won't tolerate mismanagement at VA hospitals.
 
Who is he kidding? Obama has tolerated the mismanagement of VA hospitals since he took office. All of which has resulted in lengthy waiting lists and 40 deaths. Further study of the matter only reinforces Obama's toleration of the status quo.
 
When Obama says he does not tolerate mismanagement of VA hospitals, we must remember that this is the same man who said the IRS scandal was "outrageous" but then six months later said it was "faux outrage." Does anyone doubt Obama will change his tune about the VA scandal in six months time?
 
It is worth noting that when Obama said he was outraged by the IRS scandal, the acting director of the IRS fell on his sword. But today, Obama not only didn't announce VA Secretary Eric Shinseki's resignation, he basically gave him a "heckuva job" pat on the back.
 
I wonder if Obama was indignant during his news conference because it kept him from his real business of the day — meeting with the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.
