Joe Scarborough: I know someone who might be able to turn the VA around (Guess who without reading)

Via Breitbart, who better to fix the government’s most notorious bureaucracy than the man who ran for president as an expert turnaround artist? Just one problem: Not in a million years, I’d bet, would Romney accept a task as thanklessly Sisyphean as managing the VA. No one — no one — is going to turn the agency around and he surely knows it. So does Obama, I expect, which is why he’d happily offer a Republican like Romney the job if he thought he’d take it. It would make the next two years of VA failures thoroughly bipartisan, with zero risk that the new manager would embarrass O by succeeding where his Democratic administration had failed.

“It would make the next two years of VA failures thoroughly bipartisan, with zero risk that the new manager would embarrass O by succeeding where his Democratic administration”

Amazing how when a “Republican” is in office everything has to be bipartisan. If a Democrat is in office the “bipartisan” label is dropped.

Want to fix the VA. Give the job to Lt. General Robb. He runs The Defense Health Agency and is doing a great job with reorganizing that.

Want to REALLY fix the VA problem? Give vets good health insurance and fire the entire VA department, top to bottom.

Take the current budget of the VA, divide by the number of vets served, give the vets a voucher for that amount which they can use towards getting a plan from the provider of their choice.

That makes entirely too much sense. They’ll never go for it.

They’d never give it to McCain. What if he asked Palin for help and she fixed it? :-)

Romney would be a fool to take the job. McCain is already a fool. If you want a RINO, go for the most experienced RINO.

Something like that is my preferred solution, if it really pencils.
Numbers of vets served now and projected for next ten years = ?
Current budget and projected budgets for current and next ten years = ?
Then we can calc amount available per each. I imagine there would be savings.

If Obama were to ask Romney to take over the VA, I recommend Romney respond as follows: “No, but I would take this: Force Biden to resign, appoint me as VP, then you resign. I’ll put you in charge of the VA for at least one year to show us what you can do. Take it or leave it.”

Too many “important” and “essential” paper-pushing career civil servants would be unemployed under your scenario. Since they are overwhelmingly Democrat voters, it will never happen.

We could do the same for the entire government. And be more efficient. Even the Pentagon would become a triangle.

a very public event and firing would occur shortly after a year..

I'd say it's booze, and it may well be.

But I do know he plays a lot of golf without wearing a hat - better to show off his handsomeness.
