Gee, what happened? Too busy golfing?

Obama Has Spent Seven Years Promising to Fix the VA ...

Foreign Policy
May 21, 2014 - In the summer of 2007, Obama appeared before the Veterans of Foreign Wars to pledge to clean up the VA and deliver more timely care to ...

WASHINGTON — It’s one of those promises the president would probably like to forget.

In vowing to make the Veterans Administration the model of national health-care reform back in 2008, the outlook for scandal-plagued Obamacare suddenly seems even worse.

WND has discovered that during his transition into the White House in 2008-09, President Obama proposed in his “Obama-Biden” plan to “make the VA a leader of national health care reform so that veterans get the best care possible.”

However, instead of fixing the VA, the administration has had to defend its role in the death of veterans by neglect.

Meanwhile, WND is reporting that eight years earlier, in a failed run for Congress, Obama unveiled a sweeping health-care plan that modeled aspects of the Veterans Administration’s medical system.

The VA problems became a national sensation April 14 when CNN reported that at least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix VA, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list.

The discovery of the Obama-Biden VA plan fits a pattern that has come to light this week in which Obama repeatedly warned, or was warned, of serious problems at the VA but apparently did little in response.

Seems to me that you are describing George Zimmerman. That worked out well.
"Law enforcement training" does not include education on Constitutional rights. The last thing we need are trained cops who are poorly educated.

You do understand the difference between training and education, don't you?

Yes, the Bush recession was the worst in 80 years compiled with a near financial meltdown, housing collapse, two quagmire wars. The effects are still affecting our economy.
Maybe one day, you whiny little sh*ts will admit how your party screwed this country both under Bush & then fighting recovery under Obama.
If GDP growth in 2Q 2014 is negative, we are officially in recession, regardless of the weather.

But you have a point. When the blame Bush excuses no longer work, might as well blame the weather.

Funny chit there Flack. I realize that being from WV you assume everyone lives in a trailer. You avoiding trailer parks must be why you no longer live there.
Real people should be concerned when they see a person carrying a gun. Do they know how to carry it safely? Is the safety on? is it properly secured? Are they one of "those" people?
Guns are not toys. They should be handled responsibly. I question how responsible these girls were when their purpose was to create a stir. I question the responsibility of anyone who totes.
Guns resent an opportunity for a bad situation. Does the reason to carry a gun out weight the chances of an accidental shooting or these guns being taken & used by criminals.
Some folks are concerned every time they see a cop carrying a gun, because they know that the police are never held accountable for handling a gun irresponsibly.

This is the recession Dumber than shit Dave refers to ad nauseum:

by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

The thousands of mortgage defaults and foreclosures in the "subprime" housing market (i.e., mortgage holders with poor credit ratings) is the direct result of thirty years of government policy that has forced banks to make bad loans to un-creditworthy borrowers. The policy in question is the 1977 Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), which compels banks to make loans to low-income borrowers and in what the supporters of the Act call "communities of color" that they might not otherwise make based on purely economic criteria.

The original lobbyists for the CRA were the hardcore leftists who supported the Carter administration and were often rewarded for their support with government grants and programs like the CRA that they benefited from. These included various "neighborhood organizations," as they like to call themselves, such as "ACORN" (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). These organizations claim that over $1 trillion in CRA loans have been made, although no one seems to know the magnitude with much certainty. A U.S. Senate Banking Committee staffer told me about ten years ago that at least $100 billion in such loans had been made in the first twenty years of the Act.

So-called "community groups" like ACORN benefit themselves from the CRA through a process that sounds like legalized extortion. The CRA is enforced by four federal government bureaucracies: the Fed, the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The law is set up so that any bank merger, branch expansion, or new branch creation can be postponed or prohibited by any of these four bureaucracies if a CRA "protest" is issued by a "community group." This can cost banks great sums of money, and the "community groups" understand this perfectly well. It is their leverage. They use this leverage to get the banks to give them millions of dollars as well as promising to make a certain amount of bad loans in their communities.

Demorats own it 100%

Hypocrite of the century as well as liar of the year:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.… Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”……..

Senator Barack"douchebag" Obama

What you earlier posted about Michael Bloomberg's commencement speech comments hits home. Academia is so full of its Liberal Self that it stumbles and stutters senselessly.

On Monday, they love you. On Tuesday, they hate you. On Wednesday, they reconsider Tuesday's decision to rescind Mondays praise. On Thursday, they want clarification from you so they can pass judgement on whether or not you are a racist, anti-Muslim, Gun Nut or Conservative Mass Murderer. On Friday, they want you to submit something in writing that they can point to showing you to be a true Progressive Marxist. On Saturday, they bug your office. On Sunday, MSNBC airs the audio of your phone call with Wayne LaPierre and Ted Nugent....

These people are nuts and very dangerous.

He must not like having to deal with the bureaucratic mess at the VA or hurting Muslims' feelings by addressing the epidemic of Christian persecution around the world.
He's not only disengaged but now completely out of touch.
And I thought nothing else could surprise me.
If a tree falls in the forest and nobody saw it, did it really fall?

If the Boy Messiah loses his mental faculties and Valerie hides it from us, is he still crazy or just MIA?

We should worry more about Valerie's mental health than his. If he flips completely, she can send him off to golf in Hawaii until the recess bell rings in a couple of years.

No joke....I was watching PBS Newshour this evening with Judy Woodruff. She had Mark Shields and David Brooks giving their Liberal opinions, of course. They began discussing the VA scandal and Eric Shinseki's resignation.

Suddenly, Mark Shields begins Bush-Bashing telling us how badly Shinseki was treated by George Bush back in 2003. I went "What the hell?"

And then he turns traitor on his own Liberal circus by criticizing the NY Times, Washington Post and some other Liberal rag because they are criticizing the Magic Negro's VA constipation and his lack of foreign policy!

These two boobs really put on a show last night. Typical Progressive circle-racing.
