Video: House Democrat destroys Shinseki, Obama over VA fiasco in floor speech

posted at 5:21 pm on May 21, 2014 by Allahpundit

Via the Free Beacon, watch to the very end for the crucial counterpoint to Obama’s nonsense this morning. Namely, the VA’s problems are very well documented. When O harrumphs that he needs to study the problem or whatever, he’s transparently doing nothing more than buying time to plot his next move politically. He’s the guy who was calling VA wait times an “urgent” problem seven years ago. Now, suddenly, he needs a few weeks or months or years for you to lose interest to get to the bottom of all this. And the fact that it’s a Democrat, not a Republican, who’s on the floor laying that out tells me this is now a five-alarm fire inside a caucus that’s already panicked about being burned to the ground this November by Obama’s unpopularity. If he’s at 42 percent today, where’s he going to be in a month when his passivity, inaction, and — to borrow a Bush-era phrase beloved by the left — incuriosity about veterans languishing from VA corruption and sclerosis are firmly on the public’s radar? Wait until they find out that he hasn’t even formally met with Shinseki in nearly two years.

David Scott’s not the only Democrat in revolt either. Rep. John Barrow also called for Shinseki to go today, and the left’s favorite cable news network devoted the better part of a segment to explaining that underfunding, the all-purpose scapegoat whenever liberals are in a political jam, doesn’t explain why veterans are being shafted. The White House is in trouble.

libfreeordie on May 21, 2014 at 5:26 PM

OK this sounds a bit paranoid…even to me, but I get the feeling that maybe Obama told the Dems up for election this November that he would fall of the sword over the VA mess to give them a chance to do exactly what this Dem has done, come out swinging for our vets! Is this Dem up for re-election this November? If yes then maybe I’m on to something. Believe me I used to be a non-conspiracy person until Obama and this version of the Dem party. They will do anything, say anything to stay in power.

Just color me skeptical on this one.

But something occurred to me. Why are we depending on government for this psychiatric stuff? It needs to be dealt with immediately. There are lots of non-profits out there like Wounded Warriors. They can’t be the only one. There needs to be one for suicide. Someplace anyone can contact either potential suicides or their families.

VA bosses cover up drug dealing in Miami VA Hospital,
Iraq vet with PTS in the hospital, getting passes to leave the hospital coming back and dealing drugs in the lobby with others.

He committs sucide a month ago…

Guess this VA cop had had all he could take as he tried to stop it and other crime inside the hospital.
The VA bosses would not help so he went to CBS Miami.

Search under VA at search window,

http://www.cbsmiami.com/

100% chance this same shit is going down at many other VA facilities and the same thing, “it does not help with the bonus money” so its not our problem say these VA boss thugs…

Interesting theory, but it leaves out one thing…Obama is an arrogant and narcissistic pr!ck. He doesn’t do things for the good of his party unless it benefits him. Taking one for the team is not in his nature. He has not accepted responsibility for any failure perpetrated by his administration, and no matter how much trouble the Ass Party appears to be in this election cycle, he isn’t about to start now.

Democrats should be jumping on board with this.

Maybe they are starting to realize that Obama is doing damage to the idea that big government can accomplish great things.

If they direct more outrage at Obama for being a failure at managing the government, then maybe they can reduce damage and blame it on management rather than the system itself.

An attempt to salvage what they can.

Ironically, Romney would likely have done more for big government ideals than Obama. Romney would have been a better manager and improved the function of big government to the extent practicable. Obama can’t manage and can only create more government.

If it is true outrage then it will be repeated day after day and D’s will be seeking an investigation. As Head of Government and CinC the President has duties to ensure that veterans are properly cared for and are not abused, and that funds meant for their care are not siphoned off for other purposes.

Deaths, suicides, misuse of funds, rewarding those who are responsible for the deaths… if D’s want to really, and for true, go after Obama on this then let them demonstrate it. Let them put their problems on the table and call for a top to bottom investigation of the VA and Obama’s oversight of it.

If they don’t then this is just covering his ass by trying to sound all brave and huffy.

I’m betting on it being ass coverage.

Democrats are good at distracting to do that.

Mentally they are almost identical to each other if true. His turd bomb in this thread is classic brainfree. He often brings up ancient history to try and pretend it somehow has relevance to something today. And it is always some moral equivalency BS. Nothing can ever be examined or dissected on its own because it is always more important to pretend something or other happened differently at some ancient point in the past.

“After seven years of an Administration that has stretched our military to the breaking point, ignored deplorable conditions at some VA hospitals, and neglected the planning and preparation necessary to care for our returning heroes, America’s veterans deserve a President who will fight for them not just when it’s easy or convenient, but every hour of every day for the next four years.”

Sorry, Dear, but you make it too easy.

F-

PS, did you see the new story about how a Democrat Administration led by a Halliburton crony (Lyndon Johnson) conducted a War on Gheys 50 years ago?

It was published in the Far-Right New York Times!

I’m going to assume Rep. Scott is sincere about this as opposed to having been put up to say this by the White House. If the goal was just to have a Democrat criticize Obama for political purposes, they would have had Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) or Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), who are in tough re-election races and need to separate themselves from Obama, condemn Obama and Shinseki instead.

By contrast, David Scott is unopposed for re-election in a safe Democratic district. He doesn’t need to distance himself from Obama for political purposes.

When were GOP reps doing this against Bush during his regime. HotAir keeps posting links of Democrats criticizing Obama…and then claiming that the left never openly disagrees. Girl, bye.

This “leader” of ours can’t even lead when lives have been lost and he’s “mad as hell”!!!!

The thought of 2 more years of his leadership is repugnant.

scalleywag on May 21, 2014 at 6:24 PM

Just color me skeptical on this one.

At this point, I all to ready to agree with you.

Of course he’s up for re-election in November. He’s a House member.

Ahhhh….whodofthought?

avagreen on May 21, 2014 at 6:25 PM

When O harrumphs that he needs to study the problem or whatever, he’s transparently doing nothing more than buying time to plot his next move politically.

Typical Obama. When a decision needs to be made now, time to STUDY it and REFLECT.

1. A problem isn’t a problem until you acknowledge it
2. Studying a problem buys time
3. Time buys public forgetfulness
4. Problem solved.

GarandFan on May 21, 2014 at 6:25 PM

Not to worry. Obama will take strong and decisive action on the VA issue, just as soon as he makes his Keystone Pipeline decision…

I was front and center criticizing Bush for his iniquities – Katrina, the VA, the stock market and housing collapse (orchestrated by YOUR ilk BTW).

Guurrrrl.

JusDreamin on May 21, 2014 at 6:42 PM

Of course the democrats are mad. They need to get rid of this issue ASAP. They can’t have the VA killing people because its the best example of single payer we have in this country. How can they achieve nirvana if the Republicans are able to use the VA to show the country what they’ll be getting with single payer?

Leftists love them some tenure. Because it’s so cool to be paid for brainwashing people in a job where one never has to pay the consequences for producing shoddy products. The shoddy products here are the brain-dead Little Leftists leaving libfree’s classes.

In the real world, if one produces a shoddy product, that person is replaced by someone who won’t. Not in academia, however!

Del Dolemonte on May 21, 2014 at 6:50 PM

It shouldn’t stop here. Bobby Scott (no relation) serves the district containing one of the Army’s largest bases. It is the logistical headquarters, Fort Lee, in Virginia. Make him stand up for the veterans or forever be denied any regard for or from the military families in this country. Email his sorry @$$.

+1. Our old LFOD was much better.

rogerb on May 21, 2014 at 5:35 PM

Agreed. This LFOD runs away before, heaven forbid, someone says something she doesn’t like.

itsspideyman on May 21, 2014 at 7:02 PM

Obama lied about “fixing” the VA to get elected.
But Obama basically lied about everything and anything to get elected.
The democrats are beyond CYA mode….they are hoping that not enough people notice the democrats are lying scumbags that go to Washington to rip you and me off…..

Obama’s mission was to destroy the US military. That is one thing he has done.

redguy on May 21, 2014 at 7:04 PM

Blah, blah, blah, blah, f…ing BLAH. The beat of political opportunists goes on. Two years. I came home to be spat upon. I went on with my life, thank God. PLEASE take care of those Vets who worked for a livin’ and STFU…
