Even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, one of President Obama’s staunchest defenders, is hinting that he needs to ramp up his response to the emerging Veterans Affairs Department scandal.

A proper presidential response demands more than simple rhetoric and expressed outrage, she said during her weekly press briefing, Breitbart reported.

Mrs. Pelosi made the comments in context of discussing her satisfaction level with Mr. Obama’s efforts to deal to revelations that VA hospitals were skipping out on providing promised care to military veterans.

“None of us could be satisfied with how you can immediately address some of these concerns, and you have to address them — you have to correct them, you have to take action,” she said, Breitbart reported. “This has to be on a path that takes us someplace, not just a registering of concern.”
