Skip to comments.ABC, NBC Ignore Report Showing Obama Administration Knew About Ongoing VA Problems
Posted on 05/19/2014 9:07:55 PM PDT by chessplayer
Documents obtained by the Washington Times revealed that the Bush Administration warned the Obama Administration about problems within the Veterans Administration as early as 2008, yet both the ABC and NBC evening news broadcasts ignored the story on Monday, May 19.
Of the big three networks, only the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley covered the new revelations in the VA scandal. CBS News host Scott Pelley noted that The Bush White House was so concerned about this back in 2008 that it warned the incoming Obama Administration.
Would you expect anything else? No surprise here.
If anything, this gives the preezy and the libs the perfect out. They can say Bush caused it, knew about it, and let it continue. Lefty blogs are already blaming Bush for the whole thing.
its a conspiracy.....not a smidgeon of anything to it!
Shouldn’t it be ABC-DNC and NBC-DNC in the title? These broadcasters are just part of the Democrat National Committee. They get their talking points from the party head. The VA scandal is NOT a scandal. The Chumpmander In Chief has as his highest priority to GOLF PERIOD. The Veterans are the lowest priority.
Another scandal that won’t hurt The One in the least.
pResident Obamajumbo swears he just found out about it, from his Deputy Undersecretary Marvin T. Martian, and they’re both very, very angry.
After 97 years of service the administration is regretfully tossing Marvin under the bus. But it’s OK ‘cause he was planning to retire anyway and move back to Barsoon.
And he thinks Jughead is a bigger idiot than Fred Flintstone.
Not surprised..Obama could kill a puppy on live TV and the media would either not report it or make excuses for him..Obama is their messiah, he can do whatever he wants, kill whoever he wants and get away with it
Active Duty/Retiree ping.
And the leftist bastards labeled Reagan as "the Teflon President."
“Obama could kill a puppy...”
Do you have any evidence that he has not killed a puppy or two along the way??? Frankly, I would not put it past him.
OOPS! Time to go play golf and then, on to a RAT fundraiser!
“Do you have any evidence that he has not killed a puppy or two along the way???”
But we do know he ate at least one.
Dont know if he’s personally killed one, but when he was a kid he admitted to eating one
Well, they haven’t released any polls lately so it very likely is getting out. More voters read the internet than watch old media.
Pray America wakes up
Great point! Of course, I've never mistaken you for a dummy, bray.
Not true. They just haven’t thought a way to spin it yet. I give it till tomorrow.
I have seen some really colorful descriptions on FR, of all the things the Obungler could get away with. Most of them went much further than simply offing puppies, and yes, I believe he could get away with ANYTHING.
I guess since I love dogs it was the first thing that came to mind..Obama has already gotten away with murder(Benghazi) so that pretty much is anything
I just wonder if more people will be mysteriously "offed" in the next 2 years?
Nothing would surprise me anymore..too many people have died mysteriously under this administration..didn’t a woman who provided Obama’s birth certificate in Hawaii recently die in a plane crash..she was the only one killed
I believe you are right. Just another coincidence? I am just cynical enough to say NO.
And Bush should get some blame for that.
The VA systems should probably be sold off with vets compensated for regular hospital care instead.
My first experience with the VA was in 1974 after I left service to go to college. There were some medical issues. They responded almost as quickly as the snail mail of that era would allow. It was the Nixon era.
My next experience with the VA was after retirement in 2002, the end of the Bush era. They were unbelievably slow. Every piece of paper I sent them they returned asking for more. I finally blew them off because as a retiree I have Tri-Care.
This just might be a good time to resubmit. Perhaps with all the attention they will be nervous enough to do their jobs.
You are 100% correct.
Obama has the media protecting him, the GOPe kneeling before him and masses of brain dead Oxygen wasters supporting his every deed.
He could fart and the Left would say it smells like flowers.
