Liars, Thieves and Crooks

Okay, I’ve heard enough.

The level of corruption/incompetency/greed/denial/fingerpointing… etc/etc/etc has reached a new level, it seems in American politics.

The sad part is that it is not new.  There were political scandals since before we had a United States of America.

I’m 54.  Richard Nixon and Watergate happened when I was 12 years old.  Before that, I don’t have much of a living memory of dirty political crap except what I’ve read.

This was before the days of 24/7 news coverage so we had to wait for the evening news or daily newspaper for the details of anything.  Yes, we had some radio stations with hourly newscasts but they were 5 minutes long and mostly headlines.

What has my blood boiling at the moment is the scandal of the week, the Veterans Administration healthcare cover up.

In case you haven’t been paying attention, it appears that the VA has been fudging their numbers to look good. There was the list of vets getting health care that were being reported and in the system and then there was all the others.  The others are the vets who were put on a secret list and being ignored.

What really pisses me off is that our President supposedly first learned about this by watching the news recently?


He spoke about the problem in 2007. He was briefed on this problem when he took office in 2009 after winning the 2008 election.

Yet the President turned a blind eye and lied that the problem was fixed under his watch.

It’s important to note that this problem did not begin with President Obama.  He inherited the problem.

The problem was real under President Bush. So this is not new.

We were promised Hope and Change and the most transparent administration with this President.  Instead it has become more hopeless for our vets and nothing has changed for the better, it’s just gotten worse.

This is not an attack on President Obama because he is a Democrat, black, or any other excuse that the left leaning news media wants to portray like they often do.

It is just another sad day and demonstration of another inept scandalous affair that is more than another broken promise, it has cost lives while being swept under the rug.

Sorry Mister President, I don’t believe a word you or your people say anymore.

We don’t want political posturing, we want to have Hope for the future because of the Changes you promised years ago.
