There can be no doubt whatsoever that President Barack Hussein Obama does not care about the veterans of the United States military. We can certainly ascertain by his actions that he doesn’t care for the actively serving men and women of our military. Why else would he decimate our force and make the inane comment at the Air Force Academy commencement that our military is stronger because we have females serving in combat duty positions? His misguided focus on the social reengineering of our armed forces is detrimental to the prosecution of combat operations and readiness.
And now we know Obama possesses clear disdain for our veterans. As reported by the Washington Examiner, “President Obama offered a strong vote of confidence to Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald, just weeks after the agency head stirred controversy for comparing the waits at VA hospitals to lines at Disneyland.
“I think Secretary McDonald has done a terrific job,” Obama told the Colorado Gazette in an interview published Sunday. “Since there’s only eight months left in my administration, [McDonald’s] got all the way until then to run through the tape,” he added.
Dozens of GOP lawmakers blasted McDonald after his comments about VA clinics, including Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, who called for his resignation. “Dismissing wait times when veterans can often wait months for an appointment is negligent and a clear sign that new leadership is needed at the VA,” Blunt said last month.
In his interview with the Colorado Gazette, Obama compared the VA to a “big ocean liner” where “on any given day …we’re still seeing problems crop up that we have to correct.” “I think the main message is that we’ve still got a lot of work to do. It’s an all-hands-on-deck process,” said the president. Obama also said he opposed dismantling and privatizing the VA.”
I must agree with President Obama, the VA is like a “big ocean liner” — the one called Titanic. And what Obama is recommending is like rearranging the deck chairs on the ocean liner as it’s sinking. What kind of disconnected person would actually utter these words regarding VA Secretary McDonald? How can anyone state that McDonald has done a terrific job? In just the last week we’ve had countless reports of more malfeasance from the VA, to include the disgusting remarks of McDonald.
Yes, we do require all hands on deck Mr. President, but we need new hands. Furthermore, your failure to admit that McDonald has been a failure and admonish him for his disparaging comments indicates you concur and are complicit in the mistreatment of our veterans. Then again, you’re in the final days of a failed presidential administration and transgender bathroom use seems far more important to you.
And what policy solutions does Obama offer for the VA? None. In his mind this is all just made up and not that serious anyway.
Sadly, there’s just not that much else to say regarding this matter. It’s not about dismantling and privatizing the VA. It’s about decimating the union bureaucratic hold on the VA that says no one can be fired. And ensuring veterans have choice and full accessibility to any medical facility isn’t “privatizing.”
Let’s be honest, Barack Hussein Obama is watching his signature domestic policy, Obamacare, collapse under its own weight. The only other close example of a socialized healthcare system in America is the VA. The last thing Obama, a doctrinaire progressive socialist, wants to see is the failure of that model for what he truly believes is the best healthcare solution for all Americans — just like the unfortunate expansion of Medicaid. And Obama will throw our veterans under the bus in order to achieve his objectives and designs — as evident from his insidious praise of VA Secretary Bob McDonald.
Lesson learned: nothing, and no one, is more important to Obama than Obama – especially not our veterans.
