Skip to comments.Pelosi Explains Why VA Secret Waiting List Isnít an Obama Scandal
Posted on 05/31/2014 10:14:40 AM PDT by John Semmens
First of all, the contention that the Veterans Administration used secret waiting lists to conceal lengthy delays in treatments is disproved by the fact that everyone knows about them, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) argued. To say its a secret when there are hundreds of stories in newspapers, magazines, TV and radio is just more of the same old Republican dirty tricks.
Then to say that somehow President Obama is at fault is simply unfair, Pelosi continued. As anyone who has seen his recent press conference knows he only found out about it from media reports just like the rest of us did. Just because he is the President doesnt mean everything that goes on in his Administration is his fault. The Government is a vast enterprise that is far too big for any one person to manage.
Confronted with the fact that Senator Obama criticized the VA when George Bush was president, Pelosi insisted that awareness of the mistakes of others is different. The objective in 2008 was to convince voters to make a change. That goal was accomplished and reconfirmed in 2012, which, I think, shows that President Obama was able to focus on and achieve the more important task.
Now that President Obama has courageously and graciously accepted Shinsekis resignation I am hopeful that we can put this ugly episode behind us, Pelosi added. Once again the President has been failed by a subordinates ineptitude. That he still continues to persevere for a country that may be unworthy of his greatness shows a strength of character beyond what anyone else in similar circumstances could have shown.
In related news, VA officials testifying before Congress were accused of stonewalling by Representative Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan). Thomas Lynch, Assistant Deputy Undersecretary for Health and Clinical Operations, claimed that disclosing Government secrets to a rogue Congress would be both insubordinate and possibly treasonous. The ulterior motive of those prying into VA affairs is to undermine our nations Commander-in-Chief. I cannot allow myself to become a party to this kind of disloyal and insurrectionist activity.

Because its par for course and to be expected with your administration?
If Pelosi had to wait four years for each of her plastic surgeries, she’d sure look a whole lot better now!!!!!
Pelosi offers another lame excuse for her fellow incompetent comrades.
Why, he’s even made a # sign about it, THAT’S how serious he is about it!!!!
I'm getting conditioned now though....when my blood starts to boil I go back and look a lil closer at who wrote the article...the problem is...sometimes its not you, but a real story!
Somehow the buck NEVER seems to fall on odumbos shoulders, its always someone elses fault. Pelosi is just marching to odumbos orders. What an airhead.
You’re on fire this week-end.
You should get a job as her PR/Speechwriter
Stupid, stupid wretched woman.
Intellectually and morally bankrupt.
What an embarrassment to the human race.
Nothing is a scandal to this brain dead ditz unless it’s a Republican who did it. Nazis have always been like this.
Well,to start with...maybe if government had not gotten so big maybe it would not be so out of control.
Pelosi...why not blame the Great Depression on the Tea Party? And the Ice Age...?
