President Barack Obama is dispatching one of his closest White House advisers to oversee a review of the beleaguered Veterans Affairs Department as the agency grapples with allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at a Phoenix veterans hospital.

White House deputy chief of staff Rob Nabors will be temporarily assigned to the VA to work on a review focused on policies for patient safety rules and the scheduling of patient appointments, officials said Wednesday. The move signals Obama's growing concern over problems at the department, particularly recent reports that hospital administrators in Phoenix kept an off-the-books list to conceal long wait times as 40 veterans died waiting to get an appointment. Similar problems have since been reported in other states.

I have no doubt he will get right to the bottom of this, oh, let's say around the year 2525, if man is still alive :-)

Obama's growing concern

Who are they kidding?

Why is AP still kissing up to that proven fraud and liar?

The executive is undertaking to investigate and reform the executive and we are supposed to believe that the so-called "report" emanating from such an investigation will be thorough. We have seen an example of this when Hillary Clinton while she was running the State Department undertook to investigate Benghazi and that review did not even include interviews of Clinton or of the Secretary of Defense.

Earth to John Boehner: you have failed timely to point a special committee for Benghazi; you have failed entirely to appoint a special committee for the IRS; and you have failed to focus the nation's attention on the Veterans Administration scandal and the hearings in the House committee.

If you had said that 10 years ago, I would have laughed. Now? You may very well be right. I have no doubt the communists would like to do that. They do, however, have a problem. It is called the second amendment. They can not do this until they have a successful gun grab.

When Obama does this, the MSM yawn.

Remember what happened when Chris Christie issued an internal report exonerating him from the bridge closure?

Everybody cried foul!
