Plausible deniability is the order of the day at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Everything the administration does is coldly calculated to foster the impression that President Obama is author of all that is good and entirely blameless when things go wrong (as they often do).
House Republicans said Wednesday that the Veterans Affairs Department may not be ready to handle hundreds of thousands of veterans who may sign up for health benefits next year to meet the new individual mandate under President Obama's health-care law.
Robert A. Petzel told a Senate committee Wednesday that a preliminary review found no evidence to support the allegations.
