Wow, could he possibly spare fewer words on the Veterans Affairs debacle? Both Obama and Biden delivered remarks earlier today, as per Memorial Day tradition. But such speeches were clearly not events that either one of them was particularly looking forward to. The VA scandal has become such a mess both morally and politically, filled with so much outrage on both sides of the political aisle, that it may indeed become the scandal that finally rocks the administration off its comfy Teflon perch. The media isn’t letting the administration off the hook this time, and the timing of the whole disaster unfolding right around our most sacred holiday leaves the White House with a world of trouble on its hands. Given that grim reality, what can these guys possibly say to diffuse the situation?
One hopes it would be more than this:
“The VA’s having problems.”
Thanks, Uncle Joe!
