    Carney: White House Learned About VA Scandal From News Reports[W:72]

    Again, the White House claims the president learned of the VA scandal through news reports... Is this president an out-of-touch idiot, or a calculated habitual liar?


    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.

    I don't understand how that could be true.

    Notice the dates:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/28/us...pagewanted=all
    Veterans dying because of health care delays - CNN.com
    Veterans Die Waiting For Benefits As VA Claims Backlog Builds - The Daily Beast
    http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/19/health...h-care-delays/

    There were already major signs of a dysfunctional system. It's hard to believe that words weren't exchanged between the VA and the White House.

    One thing is crystal clear about this White House denial: plausible deniability is *WAY* overused.

    Oh, wait! I thought Obama already knew about what was going on at the VA...

    That means that he either knew and didn't give a rat's ass, or he's a lying piece of ****.

    One thing is certain; he's the biggest dumbass that has ever sat in the Oval Office.

    Its almost like he is expected to lie. Everybody is done with the spin.

    Obama said he was in charge, apparently he is not.

    Look where he came from. His mom and dad had the parental instincts of ally cats. His grandparents appeared to have good upbringings, but too bad their parenting skills couldn't over-ride genetics.

    This is the fifth major failure of his administration that Mr Obama has learned about through the news media, others being the IRS, NSA spying on Merkel, Fast and Furious, and the limp Obamacare website.

    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!

    Another lie from the Carney Barker. It was reported that the Bush team told the incoming Obama transition team about this.
