Palin Says Obama’s “Too Lazy” To Hold Anyone Accountable For VA Scandal

As many of you know, I’m not a big fan of Sarah Palin anymore, but she does make a good, cogent point about the World Of Obama

(Mediaite) Sarah Palin joined Sean Hannity Wednesday night to take on everything from the VA to the war on women, but Palin was particularly fired up about slamming liberal double standards and how the left demonizes opponents to as to belittle their arguments….

As for the VA, Palin suggested that Obama is just too “lazy” and lacks the will and energy to hold anyone accountable for that scandal and others.

(The relevant portion starts around the 3:10 mark.)

Is it laziness or that Obama just doesn’t give a damn? It’s been noted that Obama likes to Be president, he doesn’t like to Do president. After 5+ years in office his leadership, management, and government skills have not gotten any better. In fact, they might have gotten worse. Most of his foreign and domestic policies are, at best, failures. He’s great at campaigning, one of the best ever, if not the best. Yet, that doesn’t translate into governance skills. It’s surprising that a person with no background involving leadership and management is unable to do the job, eh?

In a separate Mediaite article, MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow gets abused

The VA scandal is fast becoming the sum of all progressive fears.

On Wednesday, MSNBC viewers were confronted by the sober warnings of a regular and respected guest, the decorated retired Army Col. Jack Jacobs. Mercilessly, he shared with viewers an inconvenient truth: the VA scandal is a failure of progressive government in its most elemental form. The VA has failed America’s veterans not because of a lack of money, or vision, or indifference on the part of the public. It has failed because it was designed to fail. Moreover, the only solutions to the problems associated with a nonfunctional VA system may be found in the private sector.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow, Jacobs preemptively attacked the findings of any investigation into the VA’s issues, saying that predictable assertions about an underfunded system in need of a larger bureaucracy will be misguided.

“The structure of the Veterans Administration health business is not organized in order to deliver health care,” he declared. “Unless until you break it down, and have a public/private partnership, you’re not going to be able to give health care to veterans who really need it.”

One of the (vast amount of) problems with government, and it’s backers, is that they think the answer to every question is “more money!!!!!!!” Sometimes, that might be true. Most of the time it’s the misuse of the money forcibly taken from American taxpayers. It could simply be the misallocation. Improper and inept leadership, training, etc. Mission creep causing problems with the original purpose. Too much bureaucracy. Doing less with more. The problems can grow and grow and grow until they finally explode.

    She quits her job as mayor, then quits her job as govenor. Then she walks off with what? 150grand in new clothes from the GOP with little Willow seen boarding a jet lugging a 2000 Prada luggage bag
    And she calls obama lazy ?
    The Dems are hoping she will keep herself in teh spotlight, most Americans do NOT like her.
    And of course she fled Alaska as soona s she could for sunny Arizona

    Yes, Sarah, dem Negroes be lazy. Maybe he should just quit like you did.

    He could go on wing-nut welfare as you have, you high-plains grafter, you.

    Transition the VA into a new national single-payer healthcare plan and improve care and cut costs at the same time. Of course, when you cut healthcare costs someone has to take a fiscal hit – insurance companies, doctors, hospital admins, investors, drug companies, lawyers etc. And they have the money, expertise and motivation to keep the system as is, their own cash cow.

    Jack Jacobs has been out of the military for almost 20 years and since retiring has been:

    chief operating officer of AutoFinance Group, Inc., which dealt in the securitization of debt instruments, a managing director of Bankers Trust, overseeing the firm’s foreign exchange options and being involved in the institutional hedge fund business. Jacobs is a principal in The Fitzroy Group, an investment and residential real estate development organization which operates in London.

    He’s currently an analyst for MSNBC. I’m certain one of the many dark money companies he works with would love to get their hands on some of that sweet, sweet, healthcare money. Or perhaps they already do. He may be protecting his turf like so many ex-military “analysts” did during the Iraq war before it was revealed that many of them also were being paid by weapons manufacturers.

    Follow the money.
