Yesterday Bobby Schilling held a press conference to kick-off his Veterans For Bobby campaign. Some of the highlights, according to QCOnline:
***called on VA Secretary Shinseki to resign
***used “fox guarding the henhouse” analogy to criticize Bustos’ credulity over statements made by the Iowa City VA director saying everything was hunkey-dory, nothing to see here, move along
***Schilling handled 2000 VA claims while in office, with 90% finished
***touted his bill to allow vets to use any private hospital, although I have seen information that this has been allowed since the Clinton administration, but whatever
***testimonials by vets on Schilling’s efficiency in fixing problems and how Bustos was a massive clusterfark.
As far as I can tell, this is the official kick-off of The Flawless Campaign ™ because except in a few instances, Schilling seemed to be operating in the shadows.
So it begins. Don’t judge Schilling by the usual standards—judge him by The Flawless.
