Of course: Nancy Pelosi pins blame for VA scandal on Bush

Drudge sums up what has become the entire Democratic Party platform:


As predictable as the sun coming up in the east and Nancy Pelosi saying something crazy:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., repeatedly put the blame for the Veterans Affairs scandal on former President George W. Bush, while arguing that her party has worked hard for veterans in recent years.

Pelosi took a shot at Bush while saying that the scandal is a high priority for Obama. “He sees the ramifications of some seeds that were sown a long time ago, when you have two wars over a long period of time and many, many more, millions more veterans,” she told reporters during her Thursday press briefing. “And so, I know that he is upset about it.”

Let’s assume the problems started under Bush (they might actually go back even further) — why hasn’t the Obama administration done anything to fix it these past five-plus years? Probably because of something Bush did.
