Sarah Palin: Obama Too 'Lazy' to Hold Officials Accountable for VA Scandal

“When you hold someone accountable, it takes energy and resource, and Barack Obama is lazy," Palin said on Fox News' Hannity. "In fact, he warned us that he was lazy, and he attributed that to having been brought up in Hawaii. It’s his words, not mine."

In a 2011 interview with Barbara Walters, Obama did, in fact, say he was lazy, as Palin noted. 

"There is a deep down, underneath all the work I do, I think there's a laziness in me," Obama said then, as Politico reported"It's probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii, and it's sunny outside and sitting on the beach."

Obama said he learned via the television about the scandal in his Veterans Administration. Forty people reportedly died after being placed on secret waiting lists. And Palin said things like the disastrous Obamacare rollout, Benghazi, and the VA scandal occur "when you have a commander-in-chief that is not engaged."

Palin said Obama will just spew "more rhetoric," and she expressed her belief that "nothing is going to happen when Obama is in charge of the military, the VA, and the federal government in general."

"And another thing is that Barack Obama still doesn’t see what the main problem is," she continued. "The main problem is government. It’s not the solution, like Ronald Reagan said; it is the problem."

She said since Obama does not recognize this, "government is going to continue to grow" under him and "will create and perpetuate" more problems.

Palin asserted that America's veterans "have earned the benefits that we should be providing them and they have been promised," and she blasted the media for continuing to let Obama off the hook by "not holding him accountable."

Yep that was the one flaw he could find with himself.

Sarah Palin is the laziest politician in US history.  She was too lazy to finish her term as governor.  Oh yeah, also, the term "lazy" is code word racists use to describe black people  Sarah Palin is a racist, she has used racist terms a lot in her career as a failure politician.

That can only offset so much.

Being white is no guarantee against being lazy.

I wouldn't call our President lazy.  BUT.....I do think that accountability is a VERY important part of being President of the United States.  So far.....I have seen very little accountability for some of the issues that our country is dealing with.
