Hillary Clinton Thinks the VA Scandal Is No Big Deal

No, seriously.

In a recent interview on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow show, the presumptive Democrat nominee said that, although there are problems with the VA, the problems have “not been as widespread as it has been made out to be.”

Actually, having been writing about the problems with the VA for the last year and a half, I would be happy to go on record as saying that the VA’s problems are much worse than the mainstream media has claimed they are. Granted, I am not the political expert that Hillary Clinton is, but I do know how to read.

They were serious enough that a cabinet secretary resigned in disgrace. They were serious enough that the FBI and the Inspector General’s office became involved in the investigation. In my opinion, that is kind of serious.

Clinton continued, saying, “Now nobody would believe that from the coverage you see, and the constant berating of the VA that comes from the Republicans, in – in part in pursuit of this ideological agenda that they have.”

HillaryThis is an interesting point. Clinton believes that the Republicans are her enemies, she also believes that she is still the target of a ‘vast right-wing conspiracy’ and that mishandling national security information is a mistake, not a crime, but she wants us to believe her take on the VA.

I don’t. This is not a Republican-driven issue that has been politicized for personal gain. This is a tragedy that the politicians – of both parties – have turned into a travesty of justice. Just remember, no one has been fired for killing vets through the VA.

Clinton rounded out her interview, saying, “I don’t understand why we have such a problem, because there have been a number of surveys of veterans, and, overall, veterans who do get treated are satisfied with their treatment.”

As with anything any of the Clintons say, it takes a second for the wording to sink in. Specifically, “…veterans who do get treated…” The veterans who don’t get treated are obviously not satisfied. Some of them are dead.

Anyway. This was a puff piece interview on an admittedly left-wing news channel. Maddow was not interested in asking Clinton questions that were difficult to answer, but even easy questions leave me a little queasy with the conclusions that she drew.

  1. First things first. Most Republicans probably don’t like the way Hillary Clinton licks stamps! There, the politics is out there. Now let’s put it aside.

    The real question should be – Where has Clinton been hiding? Even by mainstream media coverage, the VA is a mess. She, who would be the Commander in Chief, wants to deny the blindingly obvious. Would she say these things if she had close family who had served in the military? It concerns me tha she probably would – because of her unbridled ambition. She isn’t running for public office. She is running for power.

    This raises a real doubt about her fitness for the position. Sure, her denials fit her perfectly to be a politician. She has already proven that she is more thn capable of that role. But she aspires to be the Commander in Chief – the leader of the free world. The American people, regardless of their political persuasion, are entitled to better than Hillary Clinton.
