Well, it seems that SOMEONE other than the loved ones of the dead veterans ought to be crying about this debacle, IMHO.

Why that evil Republican bitch! Doesn’t she understand? What difference does it make now! I mean there must be a video somewhere that can be blamed for this, yeah that’s the ticket, it’s all because of a training video. A training video made by George Bush!!!!!

I get the strong sense that certain of the Dems - not all, to be sure, but many very highly placed - are dumbfounded by the mere idea that this isn’t just another trumped-up outrage that they are so accustomed to; that people really are angry about this and that it isn’t just a game. One wonders at how much further dissociated from reality a person can get, but inside the Beltway it’s actually pretty easy.

Cry? Made her cry? She should be incarcerated if she is at all responsible for what has been going on.

The Democrats call her “Whacky Jackie”

I cannot IMAGINE what they are going to call her now.

There are a lot of great docs and nurses and pharmacists etc. at the VA that would be delighted to be called before congress where they could testify without fear. We do have great people working for the VA and we do good work. We hate what has been happening to our Vets. We also hate the bureaucracy of the VA with a visceral disdain and contempt.

Did Ms Mooney pick the word reprehensible purposely? If she did, she sure does not pick a word which states she thinks the facts of the report are in fact false. Word choice matters.

I’d incarcerate the incompetent administrator, then, exile her. These negligent communist sympathizers have no place in civil society. Killing Veterans through criminal neglect isn’t funny.

The congresswoman did well. The female witness got a little emotional, but she was far from tears, and was still talking exactly like a bureaucrat. They all did, including the “staffer” veteran. Even he spoke just like a good little bureaucrat.

The VA will not be fixed for many years to come. It has the same problem that our epic fail education system has, namely public sector unions. Outlaw the unions, then fix the VA.

Thanks for posting the direct link. I detest BI as much as you do, but I could not get the embed video link to work here, and I thought that everyone needed to see this epic smack down.

She could make the simple statement that unless they start telling the truth, now, that they might have lots of time in a federal prison for tears. Years and years of tears.
