“Resignation” of Robert Petzel another diversion

Does the Obama administration really believe the American people are just that dumb? Maybe so, considering most Americans think they’re smarter than average.

So now we have the “resignation” of Undersecretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Petzel — conveniently announced while people’s dander is up about the VA death list scandal.

The truth is, the 40-year-career bureaucrat had announced his retirement last Fall. So in other words, he was leaving anyway this year!

Is anyone responsible for their actions in the Obama administration? Lois Lerner pleads the Fifth and is off getting a six-figure taxpayer funded retirement — and I bet this fella Petzel will get the same. No accountability, just faux “outrage” and nothing resolved.

I guess the administration figures it can just wait it out while the media entertains the American people with “panem et circenses” — in other words the next TMZ video.

Obama’s words about caring for our veterans and reducing claims wait times join the long list of empty rhetorical promises and lies. This sucks.
