The Obama administration sure is taking some direct hits these days. More information is emerging about Benghazi where it appears the Islamist attackers were using State Department cell phones to talk – meaning the administration knew everything that was happening as it was happening.Iraq is descending into a regional Armageddon. Pax Obama foreign policy is an abject failure. We have a Marine being held illegally in Mexico while the border is being flooded with illegal children crossing and illegals are being dispersed all over America. The Bergdahl/Taliban release episode has backfired and the rabbit holes just keep getting deeper. And now another torpedo hits the USS Obama: The Obama administration knew about allegations of secret VA lists as early as 2010.

This practice has resulted in data integrity weaknesses that impacted the reliability of patient waiting times and facility waiting lists.”Ok, so now what? How will the spinmeisters weave their lies and deceit to dismiss this issue? Or perhaps this is all on purpose to overwhelm the American people?
After all, we’re not talking about the rising cost of gas and food commodity prices while first time weekly jobless claims rose to 317,000. We’re not talking about rising insurance premium prices or that more Americans are losing full-time equivalent positions and being pushed to part time. One thing is for certain, the “Blame Bush” excuse is wearing a bit thin.
This is about accepting responsibility, which is not a mantra of the Obama administration — but perhaps we as the American people will start holding them accountable. I ain’t holding my breath that the liberal media will…
