Nancy Pelosi: VA Wait List Manipulation Isn't a Scandal
Newsbusters ^

Posted on 05/30/2014 8:12:02 AM PDT by chessplayer

Imagine the press letting a Republican or conservative try to get away with trying to avoid uncondtionally calling something as infuriating and outrageous as the Veterans Administration waiting list scandal a real scandal.

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did that on Monday (HT Patterico and Real Clear Politics) in an interview with Vox's Ezra Klein, who naturally let it slide right on by:

What I would like to know is who was on the secret lists and what criteria did they use to select the persons for the secret lists? Was it based on voter registration or race or both?

Shove it, wench.

No one gives a smelly Obama what your single operational brain cell comes up with.

Go away and continue to get uglier and more stupid.

The only thing that interferes with Pelosi’s logic is reason.

Yes, Mrs. Pelosi, I know. Tell us all about it, now will you?

Yes, Mrs. Pelosi, I understand, yes:

Females are not women and fire isn’t hot and snow isn’t cold. Yes, Mrs. Pelosi, I understand.

Sand isn’t gritty.
Girls are not pretty.
S**t isn’t smelly.

I get it now Mrs. Pelosi.
Thanks you very much Mrs. Pelosi.

Neither was the EPA using private non-government email accounts to circumvent open records acts to conspire to target political opponents.

Simply said, Pelosi’s Most Ethical Ever Congress ISN’T.

It’s only a scandal, Pelosi thinks, if Bush is president. Then it’s a BIG scandal.

I would like to ask Pelosi to give her interpretation of the following poem by Rudyard Kipling.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTwHCsTq3IU

I would wager it would be hilarious and utterly terrifying at once.

If it’s not a scandal, then why did Shinseki resign.

Fudge the books to get a bonus? Not a scandal? Washington is clearly a different world.

It isn't a scandal.


It is an obscenity.

Gee Nancy fudging the waiting list numbers to get a bonus isn't fraud? What about those veterans who died from not getting treatment as a result of this fraud...aren't VA officials guilty of criminal negligence in those deaths?

Nancy Pelosi must be a resident of Bizzaro world where the mayor appointed Bizarro No. 1 to investigate a crime, "Because you are stupider than the entire Bizarro police force put together".

It's a crime. VA bureaucrats should be prosecuted and go to jail, not moved to different jobs and promoted.

Very interesting question. With all my Husbands VA stuff I do remember him getting a very long (multiple pages) questionnaire to fill out. The part that sent me over the top was about our “GUNS” they wanted to know if he owned any, if so list each one. I told him to write NA on all that garbage.

Only evil racist conservative Republicans have scandals.
The Democrats are a holy political people who have a right to rule over us because they care.
