"We Will hold People Accountable..." The Continued (Broken) Promise Of President Obama

President Obama spoke out the other day on the problems with the Veterans' Administration and the 'secret waiting lists' that appear to have allowed veterans to die while waiting on care while Obama's required success numbers that were impossible to meet.

"Anybody found to have manipulated or falsified records at VA facilities has to be held accountable," Obama said.

This is not the first time President Obama has made that 'promise' to the American people. Unfortunately, he has failed to make good on the similar promises he has made.

Obama promised to "get to the bottom" of what happened in Benghazi - then e-mails proved that he lied about what really happened.

He promised to 'get to the bottom' of the IRS scandal in which e-mails now prove that Senators Chuck Schumer and Carl Levin, and Congressman Elijah Cummings may have been directly involved with the IRS in their suppression of conservative political action groups. Of course, even the before the "internal investigation" by a known Obama supporter was complete - the President said there is "not a smidgen of corruption" in the IRS. And we can certainly believe that.

Obama said the targeting of reporters of FOX and the Associated Press was wrong and vowed to "get to the bottom of it." As of this date - nothing has happened to those who participated in it. In fact - it's most likely still going on.

The problem here is that Obama makes big promises but fails to deliver on them. He said (more than once) he would "find those responsible" for the above atrocities but he has no real answers for anything. Instead he makes up excuses of why he can't keep promises or denies he made those promises. So when is the leader going to emerge?

President Obama makes promises all the time that he fails to fulfill. And people continue to praise him for it. They see his failures but fail to recognize them. Or they justify them by saying "Other Presidents have done the same thing." Is that really an excuse? Is it OK to allow a President to fail in so many things by simply saying other Presidents have failed as well? Is failure simply OK with them?

It seems to be. And there's nothing I can do about it at the present time - except document and share my thoughts. And that's something I enjoy.

Happy Memorial Day to all and a special thank you to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for me, you and all of your fellow citizens.
