‘Congress, You’re a Disgrace!’ Fox Analyst Rips Political Sniping over VA

Fox News military analyst Ralph Peters went on an angry rant Wednesday night about Democrats and Republicans using the VA scandal to score cheap political points instead of putting that crap aside just for once and actually serving America’s veterans. Peters, who offered a mild defense of President Obama and a strong one of Eric Shinseki recently, called out Senator Richard Burr for his bizarre decision to go after veterans groups for being insufficiently outraged.

On The O’Reilly Factor, Peters cried, “Stop playing politics with this issue! It’s about our vets! It’s not about your reelection or election campaigns.”

He sai Congress has no moral high ground from which to decry Shinseki, because they control the purse strings and are supposed to conduct oversight. Peters shamed Burr, going out of his way to point out that he never served in the military.

“Congress, you’re a disgrace!” he concluded.
