I assume by your first reason that the current admin is a vet then? As Palin might say,"hows that workin out for ya?". It makes no difference her status. What the VA needs is a good administrator. How she would do is anyones guess, but this automatic, vitriolic condemnation sort of surprises me.

How you can read my post and characterize it as an 'automatic, vitriolic condemnation' surprises me !?

Palin's own words...

Quote:
That's why I say, I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the tax payers looking to bail out, but ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping tho— it's got to be all about job creation too, shoring up our economy, and putting it back on the right track, so healthcare reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans. And trade, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as— competitive— scary thing, but one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we've got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that.

Hell......Trump isn't a Vet, yet everyone, almost everyone, is very happy he's the new Commander In Chief to lead our Military.....true, better than the alternative.

Palin isn't the dumb witted chick she has been painted to be. SNL and that libtard bitch that portrays her has branded her in some ways.

Or.....we can just keep things the way they were/are.....let the DEM/LIBS keep the lead on things....

Bottom line.....even if we get what we want.....we will bitch because we have become conditioned to bitch....

Not yours in particular, just overall in the comments offered. Its about 90 percent negative and I just don't understand that. She got a bad rap from the left and it disappoints me to see our side do the same thing for no good reason that I am aware of. Is she Einstein? No. Is she competent? I believe so. Regardless, the acrimony is what surprises me. I don't think she deserves it.

Thanks from 11e40

It's looking like the old Potomac back peddle instead of the two step.

This really changes the VA's, "Thank you for your service" motto into a "WALK IT OFF!" type mentality. Oh wait, it's been like that for years...

She ran the largest National Guard in the USA and Managed a State and made a profit but got a hatchet job from the liberal media. Stop watching SNL and see how she will do!

She can't manage her family, let's give her a shot at the VA.

Hospital systems' problems---that Veterans should instead be offered Vouchers for Medical Care OUTSIDE of the VA system. That would put Veterans in the same lines as every other Medicare/Medicaid Recipient!, and in no time would Congress start Cutting funds for VA facilities on the basis that now there is no more need for such!
That would be the death knell for the entire V.A. Medical-Hospital system, which for all it's problems---is the Only place that actually tailors many of it's medical services specifically for Veterans issues! And when the Veterans Administration is no more---then what?

So only a Veteran would understand what our Veterans need?

You do realize that a majority of the Doctors and other personnel that work in the VA hospital system are not Veterans?

My Dad spent just short of two weeks in the Houston VA in 2014 and of the personnel that my Mom asked while he was there, only one was a Military Veteran, a Navy Chaplin.

What every part of our current system needs is an overhaul, which often requires someone from the outside to "see" the real problem.

Totally irrelevant........so glad I'm not in the spot light....the media and you folks would have a blast with my family shenanigans......but then it doesn't matter who you are....if you are in the spot light you will be targeted.

Lets keep eating our own fellas......but push away from the table now and then before you make too many judgments based on the media, National Enquirer and Saturday Night Live...you may eat too many portions of our own and then what? whos left?.....guess we haven't learned much and that's why we don't have the highest caliber in choices anymore.

I tell ya.....I thought when the all mighty Donald won all the bitching would stop....but we can never be happy I guess.

CAVman/wiz1997,

wiz makes sense here! I am not a veteran but MY father and many of his friends growing up were! HE and them raised me and they are getting old and going away.
THOSE that follow need to carry on! I got my mom my dad's military info and she is now a member of the VFW in Anza CA and LOVES to cook for you guys! Just recently moved to Banning, CA. though...

Thanks from XXIV Corps

That seems a bit gratuitous. How exactly is she supposed to manage her own family? They are largely adults and while some have made some dumb decisions and choices they are not alone. Who hasn't? I admire the way she has dealt with a difficult family situation in having a special needs child. That's got to be tough. Her daughter married a MOH recipient, she cant be all bad right? If she were to be nominated and confirmed I would be happy to see her given a chance to succeed.

Here's a fact: she has no experience to prepare her to run the VA, which is the largest bureaucracy in the US. Also, the last time I heard her give a speech, she only had one complete sentence, and that was "Drill baby, drill".
