According to those who claim to speak for him, President Obama's "mad as hell" about the growing scandal at the Veteran's Administration.
As tempting as it is, I'm not going to sit here and try to convince you that all the lying, cooking of the books, destruction of documents and so on all started under the unwatchful eye of the Obama administration.
Because we all know better.
We know for a fact that Obama's transition team was warned about the growing problems within the VA by the Bush team back in 2008.
And now for Jay Carney to claim the Obama administration just recently found out about this latest scandal through media reports is beyond pathetic.
But what's new, right?
Here's what I do know.
I know the Obama administration has dramatically increased funding for the VA.
Good on him, I guess.
But like any other huge unsupervised, unaccountable government bureaucracy it's become a disaster and simply throwing more money at it isn't going to fix anything.
Here's the deal.
I'm not interested in playing the blame game on this one.
Every politician from both sides of the aisle love nothing more than to use veterans as props for their never ending political campaigns.
And each and every one of them have promised to always have their backs.
The time has come to put up or shut up.
American Veterans have sacrificed so much. They've fought and they've died defending this country each and every time they've been called on to do so and to think they're now dying so some damned government employee can hit his or her numbers is incomprehensible.
Turning our backs on our Veterans like this is truly our national shame...
