    These words were uttered by VA Secretary Bob McDonald when answering a question about wait times at the VA, you remember, the controversy that led to him getting the job. The full quote, for context, doesn't really help Bob...

    “The days to an appointment is really not what we should be measuring, we should be measuring the veterans’ satisfaction,” he said. “When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? What’s important? What’s important is: what’s your satisfaction with the experience?”

    I think I understand what he was trying to say, I guess... But really? Disney? Not to mention that every veteran I know doesn't seem to have ever described a good experience with the VA. And I know I've never had a good experience at a Disney theme park...

    I have a feeling Bob will be walking this one back before too long.

    Yes they do....then they say "have an exciting day". Which is code for GFY...pretty much like the VA.

    You would think he could have come up with a better comparison?

    It is scary that such retarded douchebags and qu33rs are so prevalent in the Obama Administration. The Donald has a lot of work ahead of him just to fire the layers of shit so embedded in government.

    The asshole should be fired, but you just can't get rid of a government employee. They're like ticks.
