Obama: Any misconduct at VA will be punished

Veterans Administration

WASHINGTON (AP) — Seeking to head off a growing furor over veterans’ health care, President Barack Obama declared Wednesday that allegations of misconduct at VA hospitals are “dishonorable” and will be not be tolerated by his administration.

“I will not stand for it — not as commander in chief but also not as an American,” Obama said following an Oval Office meeting with embattled VA Secretary Eric Shinseki.

His administration is under mounting pressure from Capitol Hill to address troubling allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at VA hospitals. The VA Inspector General’s office said late Tuesday that 26 facilities are being investigated nationwide — up from 10 just last week — including a Phoenix hospital where 40 veterans allegedly died while waiting for treatment and staff there kept a secret list of patients waiting for appointments to hide delays in care.

Shinseki, a retired Army four-star general, is facing calls for his resignation from some lawmakers. Obama spoke warmly of Shinseki Wednesday, saying the secretary had poured his heart and soul into his job, but said there would be accountability if the allegations of misconduct are proven to be true.

Obama declared Wednesday that allegations of misconduct at VA hospitals are “dishonorable” and will be not be tolerated by his administration.

Now does that mean that the allegations themselves are dishonorable and will not be tolerate or does the AP need better writers that would have made it crystal clear that what was said was *The allegations against the V.A. have uncovered some atrocious and dishonorable acts allegedly committed by the V.A. and those acts will not be tolerated*?

With Obama you just never know.

Excuse me for not having ANY faith in the words spoken by Barack Hussein Obama today.

I sincerely hope I am wrong but this is what I see about to happen; someone at the V.A. will be found culpable, said individual will *fall on their sword*, Shinseki, who has his retirement and benefits sown up will resign and then it’s back to business as usual for the Veterans Administration.

The V.A. has been a total *mess* for as long as I can remember. I personally know of many retired military members, and many others that were separated from the military due to health issues and injuries suffered while on active duty that have done everything possible to obtain private insurance coverage and private medical care simply because it was a well-known fact that the V.A. was/is as likely to kill you as cure you.

“We are going to fix whatever is wrong and so long as I have the privilege of serving as commander in chief, I’m going to keep on fighting to deliver the care and the benefits and the opportunities that you and your families deserve, now and for decades to come,” Obama said.

Barack Hussein Obama is a LIAR!

Wasn’t this the proposal made by Obama and his regime? Obama to Bill Combat Wounded for Medical Care.

“We are going to fix whatever is wrong”; those are the words Obama spoke today, and he is a LIAR! You see, what is wrong is the Obama regime and their treatment and obvious hatred of our military. Barack Hussein Obama and his husband, uh, wait, sorry, his wife Michelle, and their disgust at having to attend ANY type of activity that is connected to the military is very obvious. Body language and facial expressions tell much more and speak much louder than their words do.

Obama’s statement marked his first public comments on the matter in more than two weeks. Last week, he dispatched his deputy chief of staff Rob Nabors to the VA to oversee a review of department policies.

Let me say this; Obama having his deputy chief of staff, Rob Nabors, oversee a review of department policies at the V.A. is a lot like asking the fox who raided the henhouse.

The Obama administration is not the ONLY administration that bears blame in this V.A. debacle, every President in recent memory has failed to do anything about the V.A. and what goes on in their hospitals and within the V.A. management, so, I hope people realize, I am not just blasting Obama for the ills at the V.A., it’s just the fact that he is the current POTUS and he is making some bold statements about fixing something that may be way beyond repair.

That’s called *letting your mouth write checks that your ass can’t cash*…

    I didnt even need to read the article:

    1. The perpatrators will be caught and punished–Benghazi

    2. These actions will not be tolterated–IRS

    3. There will be consequences–Syria Chemical weapons

    4. There will be consequences–Ukraine

    This POTUS is just plain incompetant. Anyone who had a plan to LIE and Bullshit the folks would not be so stupid

      • Bob Mack says:

        Robie’s got it right … Obama’s cue cards — the antidote for any scandal.

        Obama: Heard It Through The Grapevine

      • Fred, I believe anyone who knows me knows exactly how I feel
        ut the Hussein Obama regime; hell everyone who who has ever commented about the all of the scandals that have “Rocked” our nation know who is to blame…according to the Obama regime the fault still lays with “43″.

        Robie is 100% accurate in his summation of Obama’s responses to all of the scandals which have rocked Obamas world.
        But here is what I do not understand…Nixon had Watergate, which pales in comparison to all of the federal laws Obama that Obama has broken…yet Nixon is impeached and consequently Nixon resigns and leaves office in disgrace….

        Slick Willy as we all know has his knob polished in the Oval office………forcing Slick Willy to lie his ass off, not because he was afraid of Congress but because he was afraid of you know who, yep old Bill was more afraid of Hillary…and with good reason…Hillary more than likely would have removed parts of Bill’s manhood…

        After all of the hoopla Clinton was impeached..but not convicted. So Bill Clinton finished out his two terms in spite of everything… All Clinton did was lie to a Grand Jury…

        In comparison Hussein Obama has lied to the American people, he has broken Federal law, he has used the IRS to attack conservative groups by delaying their tax free status..

        Hussein Obama also allowed 4 Americans to be MURDERED in the streets of Benghazi knowing full well that he had time to send in FIGHTER JETS to buzz the TERRORIST at bare minimum. ..until arrangements could be made to extract of
        people from the HOT SPOT….yet the Military was ordered to STAND DOWN and do NOTHING while our American Heros were slaughtered and the bodies which included the body of Ambassador Stevens were dragged through the streets of Benghazi showing off the dead as if they were trophies..

        Now, another scandal and another cover-up for Hussein Obama, the Veterans Administration scandal…

        With all of this bullshit, and all of the deaths.
        Where is the outrage in Congress…where is the call for impeachment??

        Is this how it is going to be with Obama and his regime skating free with nothing being done….If all of the above had occurred on Bush’s watch….He would have been impeached so fast…There would be riots in the streets…

        Sorry for the long rant Fred…but it is just a pisser, cause I have a feeling nothing is going to happen..

  2. Gary says:

    Concur completely.

    He’s like a liberal parent who doesn’t know how to exact punishment for bad behavior… Just stands there and makes a fool of himself.

  3. Miss Beth says:

    My first thought this weekend–when I first heard he was “mad as hell” was, oh, yeah so DO SOMETHING ASSHOLE!. When I heard this pile of horse droppings this morning, I thought the same thing Dick says above–how many times have we heard this same, “not going to put up with it period” drivel coming out of this jerk’s mouth? I’ll believe it when I see something substantive and not just lip service.

  4. bunkerville says:

    Sure they will be punished. Paid administrative leave. That is what they will get or worse, re-assignment.

  5. Wayne says:

    When the government won’t take care of the people who protect the nation, I get pissed off at the politicians who are patriots and Republicans who don’t stand up and fight as dirty as these Progressive(communist) degenerate Democrats. Andrew McCarthy is putting a book out with seven violations bo has committed against the Constitution. I plan to read it and will vote for anyone that wants to impeach this piece of shit we have as CIC. I hope Gowdy doesn’t fail in his quest for the real reason for the Benghazi incident.

  6. Baron Garlic says:

    Great blog and responses. We said the same thing as Miss Beth when we heard the remarks from the ‘asshole in charge”. It’s just one lie after another…verbal diarrhea!
    The National Commander of the American Legion called for Shinseki to resign right in the beginning and he should have listened. The ax has to fall on all responsible.

    I have to add that I have my fingers crossed in regard to our local VA Hospital in Syracuse, N.Y. I haven’t heard a thing yet. I have been going to this VA Hospital for over 20 years and have had excellent care. A lot of my fellow Legion Members go there too and so far no problems. That doesn’t mean there aren’t any and I hope for the best. This facility is considered one of the best in the country. We want to believe that! I had to go in a couple of times for emergency care,there was no waiting and good follow up. It should be this way at EVERY VA Hospital.

  7. Dick Robie says:

    Gowdy does not seem to me to be the kind of guy that will fail. So far, I am very impressed with him.

    Obama deserves to be Impeached, tried and kicked out of office. However, if that were to be done now, the GOP might lose the House and the Senate–then out nation would be finished. We must do whatever we can to keep the House and gain the Senate.

    Obama is just plain incompetant–he did not have the experience to “manage” when he was elected and has learned nothing in the intervening 5 + years.

  8. Abigail says:

    Robie nailed it! obama has this down to a fine art now. Probably doesn’t even need a teleprompter anymore. Surely there cannot be anyone in America who can possibly believe the words coming out of his mouth. There have been so many scandals and his responses are always the same. Yet , amazingly, NOTHING HAPPENS.
    In fact, obama cares so little for our military/veterans that he and many of our embassies ignored Armed Forces Day and instead celebrated “International Day Against Homophobia Or Transphobia”. Some embassies even flew that damned rainbow flag.
    And I think we’ve been given our ‘sacrificial’ lamb when Robert Petzel resigned a few months short of retiring. So I don’t expect anything more to happen except time to pass until some puerile member of his staff can say, Dude. That was a long time ago.

  9. Right.

    Consequences.

    Just as with “consequences” regarding Benghazi.

    Agree with you Fred. Obama’s speech was all bull shit. But then all Obama’s speeches are bull shit.
