You seem to ignore that we were in two wars, and with it we have a lot more Vets requiring services. You blame Obama for the mess that the Bush admin. created, and the gopers ignore, all the while wearing their flag pins and saying god bless the troops. lol”

“So when does Obama take the oath of office?
When is he scheduled for his first meeting to discuss reform with Shinseki?
When does Obama use HIS PEN AND PHONE to enable Vets to go to PRIVATE hospitals for immediate care until reform is enacted?
Obama talks a lot. He gives speeches of incredulity. But he is responsible for nothing.
I seem not to ignore two wars, but I do know that Obama has ignored what he learned when he sat on the Senate Veteran Affairs Committee.
The VA hospital problems involve FALSE paperwork of patients to make performance look better than it was. So far, it's happened only during Obama's administration, not Bush's. So maybe Obama can give the illusion that he cares.”

“Bruce, answer the question. Does Obama have any responsibility with regard to the VA hospitals failure to treat veterans? He knew about these issues in 2008, Bruce.”

“Hmmm, and I see you cite yourself in that response, Bruce?
Let me repeat: the budget for the VA has tripled since 2000. You and both know that OBAMA told us he would see to it the VA hospital mess would be reformed. After all, it was Obama who sat on the Senate Veteran Affairs Committee and was entirely aware of the problems at that time with the Single Payer System on which the VA Hospitals operate.”
“"Initially, the press office raised no objection, apparently because military officials had provided the list to distribute to news organizations," the Post added. "But senior White House officials realized the mistake and scrambled to issue an updated list without the CIA officer's name."
Perhaps you missed this paragraph, while reading the headline, but don't let facts get in the way of your agenda.”

“True. If you figure the total cost for the mountain of nuclear weapons we built and the systems to deliver them, they account for the bulk of the national debt. And, yet, how many ten megaton bombs does it really take to wipe out countries even the size of Russia or China?”
“"Scott Brown was concerned that Senator Shaheen was refusing to allow a vote on the Keystone pipeline, a commonsense and bipartisan project that would immediately create thousands of jobs and lessen our dependence on foreign oil," Brown spokeswoman Elizabeth Guyton said in a statement.
When are they going to stop with their B. S., a few years ago they were all about drill baby drill. Now instead of the oil production being about our energy independence, it's about how much they can export and raise the price of fuel.”

“Gee, it has the opposite effect on me. I become more curious about things, and it sets off my imagination. Also makes me become more sociable to people. Maybe it is bringing out how you truly feel about yourself.”
