    Obama ignored 3 IG reports and 1 audit that has already been done.
    Islam is an antiquated religion and needs to either modernize with the times or be completely eradicated.
    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    "Oversight" is one thing-but this is an executive department, headed by the President. So is the state department. So is the dept of defense. Obama spoke yesterday because of this.

    If you think this isn't owned by the Obama administration you are wrong, in fact you might want to pursue other avenues to defend Obama, this argument is readily disproved.

    He did, and now many Veterans are dead, while his own VA had an elaborate mechanism to obscure what they were doing. Heads need to roll for this.

    It's almost as if you guys did not believe me back in post #84. But then you must have felt the urge towards extreme leisure with an utter waste of your time.

    Oh knock it off. I spent nearly 34 years in the federal service and the poster to whom I responded was hopelessly confused on the difference between management and oversight. And I had already taken the time earlier to explain that. Persistent error merits a crisp response.

    So how many hearings and investigations did congressional oversight committees have to see if the VA was reducing the waiting list back log?
    Remind me again who is the commander in chief. Obama did campaign against Bust that Obama would fix the VA as he knew it was corrupt. Now Obama is asleep, but hey it's not for him to worry about, like all the other scandals he has not a clue of. He is the most know nothing, do nothing president of all time.

    You're one of the few loyalist of Obama trying to provide cover for this idiot.

    Well then get used to crisply responding to persistent confusion and a commitment to error as a posting style. As well as a *poof* sound that leaves a vapor trail when at last the commitment to persistent error gets bored and interested in a new batch of errors in another thread.

    How can you say I ignored you? I even commented on it.

The administration has been aware of the VA problem since the beginning. The prior administration warned them about it. They didn't fix it either. Let's shut the down the VA and simply buy private insurance policies for the veterans. It would save us a lot of money and provide better health care for the veterans.
    I often wonder that as well. There is nothing to learn at these conferences.
