The president tried to do the “mad as hell” thing this morning during remarks about the VA scandal, but Obama does the anger thing so unconvincingly he makes Ned Flanders look like a rage-o-holic.
From the AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Seeking to head off a growing furor over veterans’ health care, President Barack Obama declared Wednesday that allegations of misconduct at VA hospitals are “dishonorable” and will be not be tolerated by his administration.
“I will not stand for it — not as commander in chief but also not as an American,” Obama said following an Oval Office meeting with embattled VA Secretary Eric Shinseki.
His administration is under mounting pressure from Capitol Hill to address troubling allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at VA hospitals.
Obama basically said he’s ordering more investigation into the studies of the reports of the problems, as CNN mentioned following Obama’s remarks (CNN wasn’t going to cover the VA story but they already had a reporter in Phoenix looking for the missing plane, so they figured what the hell):
One of the people Obama has assigned to investigate this horrible VA story? Why, the head of the VA, naturally:
Second, I want to know the full scope of this problem, and that’s why I ordered Secretary Shinseki to investigate. Today he updated me on his review, which is looking not just at the Phoenix facility but also VA facilities across the nation. And I expect preliminary results from that review next week.
There hasn’t been as impartial an inquisitor since the last time Eric Holder investigated Eric Holder.
Out of all the scandals (“phony” and otherwise), how many people has Obama held accountable in any meaningful way?
