    Everything is rox/sux with you people isnt it? No criticism is fair, no praise is sufficient. Or, no critcism is harsh enough, no praise is deserved.

    •  The issue is whether or not the criticism is fair. (3+ / 0-)

        committee. He's gotten his requests for the VA from Congress, so there isnt a money issue. He's placed a respected general in charge of the department who has done an excellent job in most areas. And the First Lady has made vets families a marquee priority.

        So, therefore, it isnt crazy to say that this administration has been very involved in vets affairs and here we have a striking example, of a clear lack of management and supervision. Management and supervision of cabinet departments is the President's job. So, fuck ups are fuck ups and hes responsible. This was a fuck up on an otherwise decent record. And it isnt a new one, as Vets groups have been raising hell about it for years.

        That amounts to fair criticism in my book. Not partisan, not make-shit-up, but fair.

          Ergo?
          Management and supervision of cabinet departments is the President's job. So, fuck ups are fuck ups and hes responsible.
          So the President is managing his "respected general who has done an excellent job in most areas" And Bob and Jane and Tim in Arizona screwed up their department.....

          Therefore, the President is no longer managing his cabinet official but managing Bob and Jane and Tim, way below his cabinet official. And is Responsible for the fact that Bob and Jane and Tim screwed up....

          I'm a high jump fan, and I've seen some great leaps in the 2012 Olympics, where Ivan Ukhov won the gold for Russia....

          I think you just out-leaped him....

            head that I never said. What have I in fact said? That the criticism over this is fair. That the president is accountable. That we should wait for the report before any action is called for. That the president speaking about indicates its seriousness.

            I wont even bother anymore because there is no point with you people. Obama is immaculate and cannot make mistakes, end of story.
