Gee. Oh gee. I wonder how many left wing USMB whackos will be as upset about the VA Secretary like they are stroking out about O'Reilly?

I bet not one.

:lol:

Hypocrisy thy lame is liberal. When it's a left winger caught out it's a "mis statement" or "mis remembering". I really don't care about this but what the heck. I just feel the need to smack around lefties for being freaking asshole hypocrites.

  • Robert McDonald, who took over VA last year, told homeless veteran that he, too, served in Army Special Forces
  • McDonald is a veteran, but not of Army special forces
  • At a press conference on Tuesday he apologized and told reporters: 'My biggest motivation was to connect with the veteran'
  • White House says McDonald 'never intended to misrepresent' his service

The guy embellished his service. Shitty thing to do.
It is really funny. He lied to a homeless derelict in a photo op, because the homeless derelict claimed HE was Special Forces.

I bet he was a lying motherfucker too.

True. But that homeless man was probably the umpteenth person he'd responded to that day and if I'm not mistaken he did in fact train to be a part of special forces. If you sat him down for an interview on TV I don't think there's any way he'd say he served in the special forces.

Point taken. He's paying for his embellishment.

Yup. I wonder if he'll have to resign. That's too bad for veterans who's VA keeps going to hell.

Obama's standards are slipping!

Used to be that lying was not enough for a high-level job.

You also had to be a proven tax evader.

Oh how the mighty have fallen!
