Who knows, maybe there’s a smidgen of corruption this time around.
President Obama is “concerned and angry” over allegations that dozens of veterans may have died waiting for appointments at a Phoenix veterans hospital, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday.
“He certainly is concerned and angry about the allegations we’ve seen,” the White House spokesman told reporters aboard Air Force One.
Carney said if allegations that the hospital provided a secret wait list to hide excessive delays proved true, “that would be outrageous.”
Just like the IRS scandal was outrageous a year ago.
“The IRS as an independent agency requires absolute integrity and people have to have confidence that they’re… applying the laws in a non-partisan way,” he said. “If you’ve got the IRS operating in anything less than a neutral and non-partisan way then that is outrageous … People have to be held accountable and it’s got to be fixed.”
That quickly became a phony scandal with not even a smidgen of corruption. Well, except for all the evidence refuting that. Well, who knows, maybe now that this latest scandal has even some Democrats and his media lapdogs upset, maybe Obama really is outraged.
