Jean Schmidt: Walter Reed Scandal "Overblown"

Cincinnati Enquirer:

Rep. Jean Schmidt wrote in her weekly column sent out to reporters on Monday that stories about horrible conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center were "overblown."

Schmidt, a Clermont County Republican, decided to take "several hours" to travel to the hospital in Washington, D.C., to see the situation "first hand." Her conclusion? "I found the situation at Walter Reed to be overblown by both politicians and the media."

Oh really? Does this look overblown to you?

I hope all the returning vets from your region remember your compassionate support come election time, Jean.
