    I began reading him when he wrote for Time. I don't know how he can live with himself. I mean that as someone who used to have respect for him.

    I don't think Carney is saying that they didn't know about the problems, I think he is saying that the WH learned that the public learned about it.

    Given that the White House employs Mr. Carney as press secretary? We can only hope that the WH has learned that the public has learned about it. Of course in the past, this press secretary and his department are supposed to have failed in their basic function on every topic from guns to Mexico to the IRS and Benghazi.

    I can't help but pinch a line from this Op/Ed this morning. All President Obama knows is what he sees on television. He tells us this and his handlers tell us this and I'm starting to believe it.

    Maybe the next time we elect a President, we'll more carefully consider candidates' credentials and experience.

    JIM ACOSTA, CNN: When was the president first made aware of these problems? Of these fraudulent lists that were being kept to hide the wait times, when was he first made aware of those problems? And when did other White House officials, top White House officials, become aware of these problems?

    JAY CARNEY: When you say these problems, the fact that there have been bureaucracies --

    ACOSTA: The delays have been known for some time.

    CARNEY: You mean the specific allegations that I think were reported first by your news network out of Phoenix, I believe. We learned about them through the reports. I will double check if that is not the case.

    His employees constantly scheme behind his back. Oh, that would be a conspiracy nevermind......nah, he's an out-of-touch idiot and liar.

    "At the VA, they've had a culture of saying the right things at the top and then not enforcing change down through the organization,'' he said Monday....."

    That was the culture at the VA when Bush was president. Apparently, it hasn't changed much.


    Why don't they just let the Vets go on Medicaid?


    As a side, the VA was a blessing for my dad.

    YAY. Right on cue one of the usual suspects has arrived to drag Bush into the topic. Hatuey was up to much the same on page 2 of a thread this morning, at least this one made it to page 4!

    Nobody has experience being the President of the US until after they become one.

    Dare to dream. Too many people in this country voted for Obama because they saw him as a rock star and were tossing their panties at him like housewives at a Tom Jones concert.
