As Written By Allen B. West:

There can be no doubt whatsoever that President Barack Hussein Obama does not care about the veterans of the United States military. We can certainly ascertain by his actions that he doesn’t care for the actively serving men and women of our military. Why else would he decimate our force and make the inane comment at the Air Force Academy commencement that our military is stronger because we have females serving in combat duty positions? His misguided focus on the social re-engineering of our armed forces is detrimental to the prosecution of combat operations and readiness.

And now we know Obama possesses clear disdain for our veterans. As reported by the Washington Examiner, “President Obama offered a strong vote of confidence to Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald, just weeks after the agency head stirred controversy for comparing the waits at VA hospitals to lines at Disneyland.

“I think Secretary McDonald has done a terrific job,” Obama told the Colorado Gazette in an interview published Sunday. “Since there’s only eight months left in my administration, [McDonald’s] got all the way until then to run through the tape,” he added.

Dozens of GOP lawmakers blasted McDonald after his comments about VA clinics, including Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, who called for his resignation. “Dismissing wait times when veterans can often wait months for an appointment is negligent and a clear sign that new leadership is needed at the VA,” Blunt said last month.

In his interview with the Colorado Gazette, Obama compared the VA to a “big ocean liner” where “on any given day …we’re still seeing problems crop up that we have to correct.” “I think the main message is that we’ve still got a lot of work to do. It’s an all-hands-on-deck process,” said the president. Obama also said he opposed dismantling and privatizing the VA.”

I must agree with President Obama, the VA is like a “big ocean liner” — the one called Titanic. And what Obama is recommending is like rearranging the deck chairs on the ocean liner as it’s sinking. What kind of disconnected person would actually utter these words regarding VA Secretary McDonald? How can anyone state that McDonald has done a terrific job? In just the last week we’ve had countless reports of more malfeasance from the VA, to include the disgusting remarks of McDonald.

Yes, we do require all hands on deck Mr. President, but we need new hands. Furthermore, your failure to admit that McDonald has been a failure and admonish him for his disparaging comments indicates you concur and are complicit in the mistreatment of our veterans. Then again, you’re in the final days of a failed presidential administration and transgender bathroom use seems far more important to you…….
