During today’s White House press briefing, Obama spokesmodel Jay Carney trotted out an old line to excuse a new scandal. Carney told the assembled media that they told the president what is going on in his own administration.

CNN’s Jim Acosta asked Carney when President Obama first learned about the secret wait list and other problems — which have resulted in the deaths of some military veterans — in the Veterans Administration.

Carney replied, “You mean the specific allegations that I think were reported first by your network out of Phoenix, I believe we learned about them first through your reports. I will double check if that’s not the case, but that’s when we learned about them and that’s when, as I understand, Secretary Shinseki learned about them and immediately took the action he has taken, including instigating his review — or initiating his own review, but also requesting that the inspector general investigate, and I think, again, I would point you to his testimony as well as the inspector general’s testimony last week.”

That isn’t true.

Barack Obama was told about the problems shortly after he was elected president. He has done nothing about them for six years.

If Americans are going to judge Obama’s lack of effort to help our sick veterans by his own 2008 campaign claims, Barack Obama is not patriotic. On the next page is video of a speech  from May 12, 2008 — a speech in which Barack Obama declared that mistreatment of our veterans is a “betrayal.”

Obama surely can't find out too much from the news reports because the MSM does not report the news. Especially if it has a whiff of scandal for this administration.

This administration is so unaccountable...they don't even bother making excuses anymore.
They have gone from "phony" scandals to phone-in scandals.

And when they sneer down their noses at you and tell you they will not allow themselves to be questioned...take that literally.

When the tantrum thrower squinches up their face and shoulders and bellows it doesn't matter to them at this point anymore, don't bother looking for a deeper meaning.

When they tell you that the scandal is "so last year, dude"...take this at in your face value.

When they minstrel act out that they don't care about yo 401k or yo daddy or yo granddaddy...they mean they don't care what happens to it, your healthcare, your borders, your job, your civil rights, your polling booths, your veterans, your religion, your economy, your military, your allies, your gas prices, your national debt, your homeland security.

They are not your government. They are your rulers. You are not here to be served, but to be transformed.

So sit down, shut up and learn to be weaned off of choice.

And freedom.

Understand. Obozo loves the perks, but he has absolutely no interest in doing the job.

I have always thought of Obama as the emperor with no clothes. He campaigned hard for the job and likes the pomp but not the work. His career as a community organizer involved hyping and speechmaking but not real work. He may be very glib but he is a very poor example of minority achievement. Other blacks would have been far more appropriate.

When many people commented back in 2008 that then Sen. Obama lacked any real world administrative or managerial experience, they were roundly dismissed (some even called racists). But look at what we have seen over the past six years. The man is totally hands off, detached, and in some respects clueless. Being president encompasses more than reading a teleprompter, giving rose garden speeches and waving to crowds. You have to do s lot of tough stuff, and it's clear that Obama just doesn't have the stomach for it.

Obama cares. He starts caring when the teleprompter tells him to care, and he stops caring once the audience gives him credit for it.

I think this guy spends most of his time watching TV. Maybe he should focus on being president, or has the bat-faced one taken that spot?

The Big 0 sounds like Sargent Schultze in Hogan's Heroes whose trademark line was: "I know nutting."

In this case, I believe Carney; major problems within Obama's regime only show up on his radar when they become news items which reflect poorly on him.

Obama is a lazy slacker, and doesn't want to be bothered with the details; it's too much trouble for him to worry about. If, as we know, he skips national security briefings, why wouldn't he be inclined to skip briefings on other matters? He only get's involved when a real conflagration starts, and he reads about it in the media, then he's "mad as Hell" about it.

He is Occupy Whitehouse...presiding only over repudiations of American exceptionalism, agitating for larger command and control central government, and of course - fighting inequality by being mid-wife to the ultimate devil baby Obamacare.

He plays golf and takes extremely expensive public transportation to fundraisers conveniently scheduled to coincide with "official" events. That's what he does. In common terms, he is a dictator.
