    Here we go again with the excuse that this administration is either dishonest as hell or just incompetent as hell. A fairly familiar refrain from them.

    Bumping up your thread Grim. We are up to 9 now. This is blowing wide open and one wonders where it will stop, huh? They said BO was completely outraged this happened. Do you believe this so..... if so. For about how long.


    Number Nine: Albuquerque VA Accused of Wait List Manipulation, Destroying Evidence.....


    These "isolated cases" (Sec. Shinseki) that may or may not be indicative of a larger problem (Jay Carney) certainly are piling up. The latest is out of New Mexico, via The Daily Beast:

    Add Albuquerque, New Mexico’s to the growing list of VA hospitals accused of keeping secret waiting lists to hide delays for veterans seeking medical care. And it may already be too late to get to the truth and find out what harm, if any, was done to veterans there—VA officials are already destroying records to cover their tracks, a whistleblower inside the hospital tells The Daily Beast...“The ‘secret wait list’ for patient appointments is being either moved or was destroyed after what happened in Phoenix,” according to a doctor who works at the Albuquerque VA hospital and spoke exclusively with The Daily Beast. “Right now,” the doctor said, “there is an eight-month waiting list for patients to get ultrasounds of their hearts. Some patients have died before they got their studies. It is unknown why they died, some for cardiac reasons, some for other reasons.” There’s no proof yet that veterans died while waiting for treatment, like what allegedly happened in Phoenix. But the doctor says it’s quite possible that some veterans would still be alive if they hadn’t been pushed through a record-keeping trap door that buried their requests for medical care.....snip~

    Its not just Obama. Govt is incompetent, period. He just happens to be the one in charge of administration right now. But hey, you guys keep electing the same people from both parties. Maybe we'll get a different result next time.

    Tough to believe he wasn't aware with all the work Mrs Obama and Mrs Biden have been doing for the veterans families.

    I guess we all should be wondering who he will blame this one on, can't be his fault - at least he didn't break the promise his administration would be different, it's different all right!


    Yep Nicnam......and it looks like Obama seems to get all his reports from the news lately. More than likely even as the whatever journalist or reporter prints something up Off their Computer. May be we should see if BO is using Blackshades of the Creepware.....huh?

    Carney's taken the lying puppet routine to new levels. Kudo's to him.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    He was, he was outraged it got out before the midterms, that some reporter had the temerity to report on this.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It is noted that you attack the messenger rather than bother to discuss the subject. A fairly familiar refrain from your side.

    I "attacked" the tactic the messenger has consistently employed from issue to issue, something that escaped your notation. The humorous joke/photo must have distracted you, that or your Jedi mind powers gleaming "my side" in all of this did.
