Senior WH Official to Ron Fournier: VA Not Overhauled Because ´We Don´t Do Small Stuff Well´
Newsbusters ^ | Tom Blumer

Posted on 06/09/2014 8:28:38 PM PDT by Nachum

In a Monday National Journal column about how many Democrats are allegedly saying they have "quit" on Obama — claims I find quite hollow, given that no one asserting this has yet had the guts to go on the record — Ron Fournier quotes "a senior White House official" with a head-shaking take on the Veterans Administration scandal. Specifically, "Questioning why the Veterans Affairs Department hadn´t been overhauled months ago as promised by Obama (actually that was seven years ago, plus six other times, Ron — Ed.), a senior White House official conceded privately to me, ´We don´t do the

Replace “small” with “anything” and you’ve got a great argument, West Wing slimeball.

So they consider saving veteran’s lives and treating their medical conditions as “small stuff” do they? Is there anything these people can do or say that will get everyone off their duffs and marching on Washington, DC?

The aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats and their ideolgical issue, the Obama Administration tells it like it is.

"We don't do the small stuff, man. We concentrate on the the big American project: Bring it all down, man."

It’s one drama after the others with this ahole.

The VA stuff will never stick.

Swipe the hand around, gettem looking at the right hand and rob them with the left hand.

Lord I hate this current crop of aholes.

But, if we have no military, there will never be wars and no vets to return from them.

That way, we can take that $48 billion and use those employees to destroy soemething else

Kinda like CoPresident Hillary’s statement that she could not be held responsible for every under capitalized business. These progressives all use the same types of excuses when they fail.

Anyone here know an Active Military Member or a Veteran that Voted for Obama? I’ve met a few.

Lots of them did, and many of those would again if given the opportunity. If they supported the Tyrant, what makes anyone believe that the Obama Nightmare will ever end with the VA Scandal or any other scandal for that matter?

Obama does what he wants without fear of Impeachment or worrying about a Majority of the People in this Country rising up against him, yet the average Citizen still thinks Watergate was the biggest Presidential Scandal in the History of the Country.

Put a fork in America as founded, it’s done.

If government single-payer health care can do THIS well for nine million veterans, just wait until we replicate it throughout the entire nation of 315 million.

Treating and caring for veterans is small stuff?
