Skip to comments.Isn't it Time Republicans Linked the VA Scandal to ObamaCare?

If liberals deserve kudos for anything, its for consistently and successfully politicizing crises, perverting truth, and demonizing political opponents.
Thanks to Rahm Emanuel, America knows that the liberal mindset is to never let a serious crisis to go to waste. Democrats are well-practiced at responding to disasters with political campaigns, because as Rahm attested, every calamity is another opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.
A perfect example of the lefts penchant for exploiting misfortune is their obsession with gun control.
A madman shoots up a movie theatre, school, or supermarket parking lot, and instantly the liberals attempt to influence public opinion by redefining a mentally ill person with evil intent as a need for the Second Amendment to be dismantled.
And it works!
Democrats have done the same thing with immigration reform. In order to do things they didnt think they could do before, which is to widen their voting base by granting amnesty to anywhere from 11- to 30 million unlawful aliens, the left has taken an illegal incursion and turned it into an American racism problem.
Disagree with amnesty and youre branded a xenophobe.
On the other hand, feckless elected Republicans consistently fail to recognize the repeated God-given opportunities theyve been given to shed light on the truth the left distorts for political gain.

When your opponent is hurting themselves, don’t help.
If the republicans link this, they become the bad guys.
This is the same group that did not run an ad showing democrats booing God at their convention.
The stupid party? Do something rhetorically effective? What are you smoking?
Where’s the connection between the two?
They don’t have time to worry about Obama and the democrats.
They’re too busy trying to destroy the Tea Party.
with all the Republican sissies in Congress? that would be racist.
By any chance are the vets put on the shit_lists disproportionately white? Or perhaps black???? This could get a racial angle
"If the bureaucrats will treat combat veterans this poorly, just imagine how much worse they'll treat you."
Early and often!
I am not convinced that Republicans like Boehner, Cantor and McConnell want to fight Obamacare in the first place.
They won’t because they are Progressives just like the Demoncrats.
Easy. And everyone misses it.
They are keeping their powder dry for the really important fight ..... that never seems to get here.
Establishment Republicans are (have always been) intimidated by “O” and by the whole Liberal agenda.
I don’t get it... what are they afraid of?
It is apparent in this issue and in all others, too. It’s time for them to GO!
The race card.
Secret lists, death panels, rotting corpses, neglect, abuse, fraud, deception, lies? Unaffordable, unaccountable, uncaring?
What part of FEDGOV are we talking about?
DISMANTLE the VA and many more federal agencies.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
The money saved could be directed to the minimal number of injured vets coming home from DECLARED, citizen-supported, just wars.
Hmmm... didn’t the ‘race card’ expire when “O” was sworn in after his Presidential ‘win’?
Obamacare is actually private health care handled through government exchanges. People go to private hosipitals, deal with private insurance companies and see doctors in private practice. The VA runs its own hospitals with its own doctors and its own administration. Apples and oranges. Try and link the two and you wind up like that idiot McConnell trying to explain how he can do away with Obamacare and Kentucky can still keep its Kynect exchange.
You don't need to muddy the waters by trying to link the VA with Obamacare. People understand veterans and tend to get upset when they're denied the care that they deserve. This stiuation in the VA has been going on for years and all that has happened under Obama is that it's just gotten worse and worse and worse. Why, after all the money and all the time that Obama has had, is the situation worse now than when he took office? That's all you need to be asking. Keep hitting him with that.
I guess I did. So enlighten me.
