not so liberal press....

What the batch of e-mails (most of which aren’t new, they can be read here) show is the opposite: that the CIA and the State Department assembled talking points pinning the attacks partly on the video, without any input from the White House.

.... Meanwhile, Republicans, and Krauthammer in this instance, are trying to pretend the White House played a role that we have no evidence, just our own suspicions, to believe they did.

if anyone actually had proof, would we now need a select committee?

no. they have nothing, so.......the FOX debacle continues.

In 2008 the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment did secure the right of law-abiding, responsible adults to have handguns in their homes for protection. Yet the court went out of its way to acknowledge that most forms of gun regulation remain constitutionally permissible.“Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited,” Justice Antonin Scalia, explained. In a sentence the NRA and many gun-rights extremists apparently missed, Scalia wrote that the Second Amendment is “not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.”
Let’s say that again: Justice Scalia, hero of the most intransigent conservatives in the country, stated unequivocally that restrictions of Second Amendment rights are constitutional.
Indeed, Scalia’s opinion in Heller warned that “nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt” on a wide range of gun laws, including bars on felons and the mentally ill from possessing guns, restrictions on guns in “sensitive places such as schools and government buildings,” or laws “imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.” These categories capture the vast majority of gun laws in America.
In short, there’s plenty of room under the Second Amendment for gun control.
the Court decides. not right wing nutjobs. i'd think after all the GOP 'laws' that keep getting struck down for being unconstitutional you'd have figured that out by now.
so you may direct any questions to Judge Scalia. i'm just the messenger. though if you need more message just ask.
DBwhiner is really a certified reich wing nut job.

Show us the text in the Constitution that allows restrictions on any right specified in the Constitution. As for the Second Amendment, I read "shall not be infringed".
What does "shall not be infringed" mean in the English language?
Funny thing is son, you only use your opinions to defend yours.

When you grow up, you might understand this..... someday!

That's what happens when the government is too big. The backlog was no more than 100,000 in 2008 under Bush's last year in office.
Look at the graph.
The backlogs began increasing dramatically at about the same time Obama was focused on his legacy - ObamaCare - instead. They peaked at almost 900,000 - just short of 1 million - in 2012. It's come down to around 800,000 presently.
Sorry but you can't lay the past six years, Obama's priorities and extenuating wars on Bush.
lol! Funny.

It looks like the article is blaming bushie boy for being backwards!!!! IOW, it's taken bushie boys mess to actually make progress!!!

Another mystery solved!

"...The downward slope is now steeper than at any time during the Obama administration.

To be sure, no one is yet measuring the drapes in a backlog-free department—as it still stands at more than 500,000 claims. Nevertheless, the trend line is striking—and it mirrors what many VA employees are saying behind closed doors. Barring any surprises, the decline in backlogged claims will only accelerate as an automated system finally replaces paper processing over the next two years.

Therefore, it’s important to understand where the backlog actually stands in relation to where it was—and to fully recognize its context...."

You should take a look at the TIME graph too.
VA backlogs in 2008: 100,000
VA backlogs in 2012: 900,000
Obama was too busy pushing his legacy down our throats and screwing up the ACA rollout to worry about fixing the antiquated system at the VA at the same time backlogs were increasing dramatically.
Seems that should have been his first priority. As well as the economy. And jobs.

Okay, reality check time for some of you on the left.

The homeless will NOT seek preventative care checkups under the ACA. They're worried about their next meal and will seek care in ERs the way they've always done in life and death situations.

The truly needy who lack transportation get around by city buses and can ride a bus to the nearest free health care clinic.

Many on welfare usually have a car, cellphone and a television. They can easily find their way to a free health care clinic.

It's the young people who couldn't sign up for the ACA because they don't have a job and/or couldn't afford it who will now be forced to seek care at these same clinics (or ERs) as well as those in the middle class who don't quite earn enough for government subsidies that the left should be concerned about.

Not to mention the economy is going to get worse.

The ACA was meant to give the government more power, social engineer our health care and raise our taxes.

The unintended consequences will become evident soon enough.

The employer mandate when millions more will lose their insurance and find themselves without affordable coverage will have to wait until after the elections. Obama knew it would sink the Democrats for sure.

Obama doesn't have a role in government other than to read prescripted messages from a teleprompter and sign documents as he's ordered to sign. I agree. Obama didn't have a clue about what was happening. He didn't know, or care whether what he said was a lie or not. He only knew that, in order for him to continue riding in the gold seat on the government gravy train, he had to obey his orders and repeat what he was told to repeat.
Should he have accidentally come across information that proved he was lying, then he would have known he was lying. Then, if he knew he was lying, he was committing treason.
Vallerie Jarrett is the President. Blaming Obama for anything is diverting from the real problem. He's just a smoke screen. He's not in charge of anything.
But, if he insists he's the President, then he gets the blame until he confesses that he doesn't have a clue what happens in government and all he's doing is what his handlers order him to do.
Son. You're just plain weird....
