Jon Stewart Blasts Obama’s Failed Promise to Veterans

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- During the May 20 2013 edition of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart brought up President Barack Obama’s unfulfilled 2009 promise to “create a seamless, computerized Veterans’ health records system.”

After covering the subject for half a segment, Stewart concluded that Obama took his two elections to office more seriously that he took fulfilling this promise to our vets.

Stewart backed up this conclusion by explaining what is required to create the computerized veterans’ health records system. And nearly everything needed to do so–things which have not been done in four years’ time–were done in 2012 for Obama’s re-election campaign.

For example, Stewart pointed that out the creation of this computerized system for Veterans requires pooling information from two separate, extant databases at the DOD and the Veterans Administration. He sarcastically pointed out that doing this would require the Obama administration to take “two disparate data bases and [turn] them into one gigantic database.” His rhetorical point was, ‘How could that be done?’

He then played a clip of a political commentator speaking after Obama’s reelection, explaining that Obama campaign won by uniting “the databases they had from the first campaign–the fundraising database, the polling database–all into one gigantic database.”

The camera then panned to Stewart who was staring blankly into it.

Stewart provided more examples of how Obama has done for himself what he didn’t do for Veterans. And pointed out that because the health records system hasn’t been completed, there is still a backlog of disability claims for 900,000 veterans. And that number is growing.

Concluded Stewart: “You could clear up this VA thing in a month,” if Obama took governing as seriously as he took getting elected.

Obama needs to be impeached. He is not a veteran himself so I find it hard to believe he feels the military should do anything but fight wars and hold his umbrella in the rain.

What a surprise! A candidate for POTUS didn’t fulfill a promise. The problem is, he’s so arrogant that he thinks nobody remembers all of his promises.
