Under California’s liberal laws, there are only a handful of felonies, such as murder and embezzlement of public funds, that aren’t subject to a 3-year statute of limitations. Would it be possible to impose a similar statute of limitations on California’s uber-liberal Congresswoman, Nancy Pelosi, so that she would finally stop blaming George W. Bush for things that have been Obama’s responsibility for over five years and only worsened under his “watch?”
Rep. Pelosi’s latest attempt at cosmic-level blame-shifting involves the VA scandal that is spreading across America as more and more whistleblowers have been emboldened to come forth. She pointed out that if you go to war, you create more wounded veterans (Really? Thanks for pointing that out for us), so the unbridled failure and corruption of the government’s program to provide health care to wounded veterans over half a decade later is all the previous Commander-In-Chief’s fault.
When Barack Obama was in the Senate (on those rare occasions when he actually was IN the Senate), he was on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. In between criticizing the way the Bush Administration ran the VA, he showed his own unwavering support for veterans’ affairs by showing up to 18 out of 37 Committee meetings. As I’ve noted before, he campaigned for President in 2007 by vowing to reform the VA, his staff was briefed on the problems following his inauguration in 2008, and he again railed against unacceptable VA waiting times when campaigning for reelection to the VFW in 2012. And now, Obama is furious to discover (after learning about it on the TV news last week) that over the past five-plus years of his own Administration, the accusations have worsened to include veterans dying and committing suicide while waiting for needed treatment; bureaucrats falsifying records to cover it up; retribution against whistleblowers; and widespread corruption ranging from theft of hospital equipment and computers to selling drugs stolen from VA pharmacies.
Darn that Bush! Will his failures never end?
I’m beginning to suspect that the only two things people will have to wait longer for than VA medical treatment are the return of Jesus and for Obama to finally take responsibility for his own job.
