Barack Obama, our next President

Thousands of U.S. veterans are in a battle with the Department of Veterans Affairs over their long-overdue benefit checks.

Some believe the changes that need to be made at the VA will only happen if pressure comes from the very top.

Obama said on Memorial Day not to take American troops for granted.

However, not moving things along fast enough to get veterans their long overdue benefits, it looks like he does.

Don't know whose fault it is, but something is very wrong here.

Any veterans on here know if anything like this has ever happened before?

According to the report. Chenney and his wife was moved down several flights of stairs to a tunnel deep under the White House.
"Halfway down the tunnel was a secure telephone, a bench and a television. Cheney asked to speak to the president. By the time the call was connected, according to the report, Cheney had flipped on a television to see smoke pouring out of the Pentagon."
Cheney remembered talking to the president and getting approval for the order. What difference did it make if it occurred in the tunnel which is documented or in the command room?
Also, so what if there was an order? By the time it reached Rumsfield all the attacks had already occurred.
Your article seems short on facts and long on opinion.
You have great 20/20 hindsight son.

It's clear Cheney felt he was 'president' and had the right to shoot American planes AND kill Americans over American soil.

Boy, and you people are so up in arms about overseas.
Yeah

You are really crappy at this. You lack facts and/or a sense of humor or common sense which leads to failure.
I don't need facts as a counter when being offered an opinion as a source.

And as for 'common sense', idiots like you rely on that as an excuse more than anything. I suggest you get away from non factual information and use things based on reality.

It gives you some semblance of intelligence that way son!

You know what's great about you son?

I get a kick out of your comedic antics! It's like watching Moe, Larry and Curly all rolled up into one as poke yourself in the eye, punch yourself in the stomach, hit yourself on the back of the head while dropping a flower pot.

Thank you for your entertainment!

I believe Congress was unanimous on the Afghanistan War after 9/11.
What's debatable at this point is should it have continued this long under Obama. The Iraq War ended years ago. The Iraqis, though still struggling to find their legs, at least vote for their leaders now.
The animosity growing in Afghanistan and now Pakistan should be the most pressing concern. Not Iraq. Thankfully, Saddam is not Obama's problem now.
lol! You need to find that declaration of war too son. You obviously haven't been keeping up with American History.

Hi Yeah. Yes, I'm still around. I just try and stay under the radar of obsessive stalkers and trolls like Fetch Almighty. As you can see, it is not easy. I do see your posts from time to time. Keep up the good work.

If the liberal poster on here who said 9/11 was not an act of war but rather an "attack" had witnessed a loved one falling from the highest floor of the Twin Towers or heard a loved one say goodbye and I love you over the phone before being pulverizd into a field in Pennsylvania or lost part of his family on one of the planes that flew into one of those buildings, he wouldn't hesitate to call it a war.
Most liberals, for some reason, have a very difficult time with the concept of empathy.
It's something altogether different unless it affects them personally.
Thankfully, none of them on here lost a loved one serving in the military in that "workplace violence" incident where the killer shouted a jihadist cry before opening fire.
Makes it easier for them to call it "workplace violence".
You need to get familiar with the US Constitution son.
Yeah

By the time President Bush found out--in a report by a senior aide--he already looked out of touch. He belatedly cut short his vacation, and the White House released a photograph of the president looking out a window of Air Force One at the devastation below, which only made Bush appear more distant from the calamity
And that's historical fact. Even bushie boy admitted it was a mistake.

Clearly bushie wasn't interested in the 47% below him.

If the shoe fits.
Bush was blamed for everything in case you forgot. He single-handedly was responsible for 9/11 less than 9 months on the job. He single-handedly created the housing market bubble and signed every bad loan leading to the housing market collapse. He single-handedly increased the budget without any help from Congress - on both sides.
I just judge Obama for being the radical liberal he is by his own voting record, by what he says, his desire to strengthen unions and grow an even bigger government by passing legislation for that purpose and because he said we were to judge him by who he surrounded himself by.
That's all I'm doing. Not to mention he has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt he thinks he is above the law and the constitution and has no qualms about lying straight-faced to us - even about something as serious as a terrorist attack on 9/11.
Was Bush a perfect president? No. Did he deserve to be blamed for everything and Democrats come out looking squeaky clean? No.
Like I said, if the shoe fits.
He also didn't do anything with the USS Cole victims, even when they asked to meet with bushie boy and had been handed all the intel Clinton had at the time.

He simply... ignored them!

Landing a president in the middle of New Orleans with all the rioting and looting wouldn't have helped those in need of rescue and would have created an even more dangerous distraction.
Sometimes you just have to have perspective and think of the outcome being even worse than the way things might seem based on bias and a photograph.
Even bushie boy couldn't make that excuse.

I earlier caught sight of the mealy-mouthed Jerk-In-Chief making remarks about Memorial Day and I immediately felt like throwing my shoe at the TV. That bas turd Community Organizer holds nothing but contempt for our military personnel. It's like watching Al Capone sing the National Anthem at a Cubs game.
God help us all.
You should have thrown your shoe at the TV. I'm sure it would have changed your hostile disposition to something less.... arrogant.
