“I PROMISED YOU”
(music by The Pretenders)

(2008 Barock ‘VA-Reform-Warrior’ Obama):
“WE ALL KNOW THAT THE ‘SACRED TRUST’ DOES NOT END WHEN THE UNIFORM COMES OFF. THAT’S WHY AS PRESIDENT, I WILL BUILD A 21st CENTURY VA… NO MORE RED TAPE… NO MORE SHORTFALLS… NO MORE DELAYS… WE WILL STAND UP AGAINST PROPOSALS TO RATION CARE.”

Intro PIANO …

Oh…. I know why you look so sad..
Tears are in OUR eyes..
So come on, don’t blame me… now..
I’m… not ashamed, I tried..
I’m gonna see it through..
‘Cause I’m madder.. than hell too!…

When the system fails you..
Well I’ll know what to do..
As whistleblowers confess….
Barock will fix this mess!…

I PROMISED YOU!…
I’ll stand by you!…
Won’t let this ‘broken system’ hurt you… (oops!) 😦
I promise you!…..

(2012 BO ‘The VA-Reform-Warrior’):
“THE VA and DOD WILL WORK HARDER TOWARD A SEAMLESS TRANSITION SO NEW VETERANS AREN’T JUST PILED ON TO THE BACKLOG.. AND WE WILL NOT REST!.. I WILL NOT BE SATISFIED UNTIL WE GET THIS RIGHT!”

So…. know I’m mad 😦 damn mad!..
Gonna look at what’s goin’ on inside…
Come on, believe in me… now..
Hey.. I got nothin’ to hide..
I’m real angry too! (“madder than hell, remember?”) 😦
Yeah, I’m a lot.. like you…

When ‘rogue’ VA administrators leave you stranded at the crossroads 😦 ..
& on either path you lose 😦 ..
I will move this along.. (“hey, it’s only been 6 years”)
‘Cause I will right this wrong!….

I PROMISED YOU!…
I’ll stand by you!…
Won’t let this ‘broken system’ hurt you… (oops!) 😦
I promise you!…

I got your back, in your darkest hour..

It was Bush.. who deserted you…

I’ve stood by you……..

(Barry ‘Reformer Extraordinaire’):
“I KNOW THERE’S MUCH WORK AHEAD.. BUT I HAVE THE FULLEST CONFIDENCE THAT WITH SECRETARY SHINSEKI’S LEADERSHIP (& my expertise), WE WILL FULFILL OUR ‘SACRED TRUST’ AND SERVE OUR RETURNING HEROES AS WELL AS THEY’VE SERVED US.”

And when… when the system fails you..
You’re feelin’ so disowned 😦
“but you did volunteer, so maybe you should pay on your own???”….

I PROMISED YOU!…
I’ll stand by you!…
Won’t let this ‘broken system’ hurt you… (oops!) 😦
I promise you!…
‘O’s got your back, in your darkest hour..
It was ‘rogue administrators’ who deserted you…

I PROMISED YOU!…
I’ll stand by you!…
Won’t let this ‘broken system’ hurt you… (oops!) 😦
I promise you!…. yeah..

(Barock ‘Honest Abe’ Obama):
“DON’T LET THEM FOOL YOU.. NO ONE IS TAKING AWAY YOUR BENEFITS.. YOUR VETERANS’ HEALTHCARE IS SAFE.. WE’RE NOT REDUCING VETERANS’ ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE.. WE’RE EXPANDING IT!.. THAT’S THE TRUTH!”

Won’t let ‘PHONY SCANDALS’ hurt you..
I’ve stood by you!…
I’ll keep standin’ by you!… (“& get to the bottom of it!”)

I PROMISED YOU!…
yes, yes, yes, yes, yes….
Watch your back, in your darkest hour…
It was Shinseki.. who deserted you..

I’ll stand by you!…

“I PROMISE TO!”…..

AN ‘OBAMA PROMISE’ MAKES A TYPICAL LETDOWN, FEEL LIKE WINNING THE LOTTERY 😦
