Gibson to Deputy VA Secretary and Rooney as Navy Under Secretary - President Appoints Two More Incompetents!

Slone Gibson as VA Deputy Secretary and Jo Ann Rooney as Navy Under Secretary, just what we need to “help” and “lead” our troops after we’ve been engaged in protracted combat for the past 12 years. A ’75 West Pointer that bailed at his first opportunity without ever even serving in a combat zone let alone hearing a shot fired in anger, Slone will have the requisite detachment to continue the VA’s absolute indifference towards Vets. As for Jo Ann, I’m sure her previous 9 month stent (11-12) starting at the top as the Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel & Readiness (before which she had never even heard of DOD) along with her years of experience as a college president, tax lawyer and managing director at scandal-ridden Huron (a company akin to Romney’s Bain Capital but with a real “history”) make her well suited to be Under Secretary of the Navy. Thanks Mr. President
