They have the money. They get more every year. People are dying because the money's being misappropriated. That fact has nothing to do with whatever Bush may or may not have done. I can hardly believe you would argue that the VA has to hang new curtains before vets can get the care we were promised; but there it is, black and white.
Why all the concern now for a problem that has existed for at least 50 years? Vets as far back as WWII have been complaining about the poor health care provided by the VA. For you right wing morons to show any concern you needed the opportunity to blame Obama. You know why you didn't care until now? Its because most Vets are from the poor and middle class and your wealthy handlers didn't rile you up about it because they didn't give a shit until the could use it as a political football. The good news is that maybe now our Vets will get the care they deserve.
You're correct about one thing, its a matter of black and white.

Exactly! Obama was willing to sit down and listen to military advisors.
Richard Clarke, Bush's White House counterterrorism chief:
"For the US military to just fly in and find one man was difficult — not impossible, but difficult. The US military didn’t want to do it because they thought it would fail and their people would get killed. When the invasion occurred in October 2001, the US military leadership planned an invasion of a country rather than the capture of a single man. They went about the invasion of the country very well, but capturing bin Laden wasn’t one of their big priorities. It is hard to imagine in retrospect, but President Bush didn’t let his White House staff, including myself and others, sit down with the military before the invasion and say,“Let’s see your plan, and let’s see how, specifically, you’re going to get Osama.” So they let him slip through their fingers when they really could have captured him then."
Bush stood in the rubble of the Twin Towers and "promised" to hunt down those responsible. He's been forgiven by the right wing lemmings here since Obama took care of it for him. But breaking a promise to allow you to keep a specific doctor is unforgivable to these idiots.

Bring it on: Iran to ‘destroy U.S. Navy’
U.S. Concerned At Lack Of Headway In Iran Nuclear...
Iran and six world powers are making little progress in arduous talks on ending their dispute over Tehran's nuclear program, a senior U.S. official said on Friday, fanning doubt about the prospects for a breakthrough...

By Adam Kredo - Washington Free Beacon Friday, May 16, 2014
A top Iranian naval commander said that he is prepared to order suicide attacks, drone strikes, and missile technology to “destroy the U.S. Navy” in any upcoming confrontation, according to an interview printed in Iran’s state-run media.

Iranian Naval Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, a member of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), said that Iran is constantly training and preparing for a clash with the United States,according to a recounting of his remarks provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Fadavi revealed that Iran “compensates for its technological inferiority to the United States with a strategy of asymmetrical warfare, including suicide attacks and the use of speedboat and its missile capability,” according to MEMRI.

Additionally, Fadavi revealed that on “at least” three occasions senior U.S. officials have contacted Iran to establish a telephone hot line like the one used between the Soviet Union and the United States during the Cold War era.

Fadavi’s military threats come amid a massive military buildup by Iran, which claims to have duplicated and armed a downed U.S. drone and to have developed advanced ballistic missiles that could be capable of carrying a nuclear payload.

Fadavi additionally revealed in another interview earlier this month that the IRGC is preparing to use drones to perform suicide attacks and also arming drones to fire missiles.

While the United States possesses advanced military equipment,“these weapons are ineffective against a new [Iranian] strategy relying on faith, on a desire for martyrdom, and on [Iran‘s] unique speedboats,” Fadavi said.

Iran will “not allow the U.S. to act against it from its bases in the Persian Gulf countries,” according to Fadavi, who claimed that U.S. forces in the region are being careful “not to cause a flare-up in the region because they know that they will lose any potential conflict with Iran,” according to MEMRI’s report on Fadavi’s remarks.

“U.S. naval forces in the region,” Fadavi claimed,“are obeying the orders of the IRGC” and “fear that Iranian vessels or missiles will target them.”

Iran maintains close conduct with its regional neighbors and will act to prevent the U.S. Navy from acting in the Persian Gulf, according to Fadavi.

Iran is also keeping a close eye on U.S. aircraft carriers, which a range of Iranian military officials have discussed destroying in recent weeks and months.
