Newspaper Admits: œWe Were Wrong to Endorse Barack Obama [READ]

 Some liberals in the media are finally waking up to the realization that President Obama’s ‘Hope and Change’ was all a charade, evidenced by the latest abysmally low approval ratings for Obama. Even the New York Times has recently spoken out of both sides of it’s mouth, covering up White House and IRS misdeeds on

Obama’s Legacy of “Leadership” — A String of Resignations in Incompetence and Disgrace

Bob Barr  It is easy to understand the “Messiah Complex” that envelops President Barack Obama and his White House. For years, Obama has been the Great Hope of the Democratic Party and liberal elites, including the likes of the late Senator Ted Kennedy, and even terrorist/liberal intellectual leader Bill Ayers.  In fact, when Kennedy endorsed

Senate to take up new VA bill after scandal

 Details of a refashioned bill to address the problems plaguing the federally run veterans’ health care system have been released by its sponsor, the chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee.

It’s a Start: VA Secretary Eric Shinseki , Carney resign

 President Obama gave a bizarre press conference to announce the resignation of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki on Friday morning.  I notice the major networks are keen on snipping this performance at the two-minute mark… with good reason.  The President went on for twenty more minutes, and if most Americans hear what he had to say,

Obama tries to blow off his newest scandal: the VA outrage

It’s shocking to learn that the President who booted World War II vets out of their own memorial during Shutdown Theater would have a blase attitude about the outrage at VA clinics.  Confronted with reports of veterans left to languish on secret lists until they died, Barack Obama yawned and assigned a White House aide

Michelle Malkin: The VA’s Deadly Bureaucratic Drones

 At least 40 American veterans are dead thanks to bureaucratic delays at Veterans Affairs clinics. But you wouldn’t know it from VA Secretary Gen. Eric Shinseki’s bland and bloodless demeanor at a Senate hearing Thursday. He droned on like an apathetic office manager fielding complaints about the copier being jammed. Shinseki told the Senate panel

Obama’s America? Veteran Care About To Get Even Worse

Lee Covino  Recently, the National Commander of the American Legion called for Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki and other Under Secretaries in his agency to resign. It was the first time since 1941 that the veterans’ organization called for such a presidential appointee to step down. The American Legion Commander cited poor oversight and failed
