Who ever could have imagined...

Center Ring at the Republican Circus
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD MAY 8, 2014
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/09/opinion/cen...

The hottest competition in Washington this week is among House Republicans vying for a seat on the Benghazi kangaroo court, also known as the Select House Committee to Inflate a Tragedy Into a Scandal. Half the House has asked to “serve” on the committee, which is understandable since it’s the perfect opportunity to avoid any real work while waving frantically to right-wing voters stomping their feet in the grandstand.

They won’t pass a serious jobs bill, or raise the minimum wage, or reform immigration, but House Republicans think they can earn their pay for the rest of the year by exposing nonexistent malfeasance on the part of the Obama administration. On Thursday, they voted to create a committee to spend “such sums as may be necessary” to conduct an investigation of the 2012 attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The day before, they voted to hold in contempt Lois Lerner, the former Internal Revenue Service official whom they would love to blame for the administration’s crackdown on conservative groups, if only they could prove there was a crackdown, which they can’t, because there wasn’t.

Both actions stem from the same impulse: a need to rouse the most fervent anti-Obama wing of the party and keep it angry enough to deliver its donations and votes to Republicans in the November elections. For a while it seemed as if the Affordable Care Act would perform that role, but Republicans ran into a problem when the country began to realize that it was not destroying American civilization but in fact helping millions of people.

Party leaders needed something more reliable, so they went back and revived two dormant scandals from last year, the embers of which were faithfully tended by Republican adjuncts on Fox News and talk radio. Their hope is to show that the administration is corrupt and untrustworthy, and if Hillary Rodham Clinton also gets roughed up in the process, so much the better....

Here is the most recent photo of Pete Wheeler, on your right, Commissioner of GA Dept of Veterans Services:

This is shameful and an embarrassment for the State of Georgia. This old guy over vet's care? It's more embarrassing than the rest of the photo of ALL WHITE FACES. "We ain't racist." in Georgia. Yeah, right.

Duh and, well yes. That's what I said. QTC is getting the funding money. So as not to offend QTC\Lockheed-Martin congress just adds money money to the top of the VA budget pile. QTC just gets a bigger scoop to take more of the money. This secret waiting list was caused by Bush and QRC. There is no money for veteran healthcare because QTC gets most of it. Vets die.
I have been dealing with the VA since 1969 as a vet. It was never as good as it should be but when Bush gave it away to QTC it plummeted.
In the State of Georgia, the Georgia Commissioner for Veterans Affairs is Pete Wheeler who is 92 years old and has been in that position over 50 years. He should have been booted 40 years ago. In Georgia he has held more power than the governor. Everybody thinks it is just grand that he has served so long and they will put up a statue in his "honor"(just as they did for Stalin and other dictators). He's been in POWER longer than Castro or any other dictator. Unfortunately for all the veterans he has turned his back on, they plan on letting him die in office just like other dictators.
Surprise, you ignored the main point. The VA is nothing if not a GREAT example of why the govt-run single payer system the Left thinks is the answer is actually anything but.

Not even bothering to look it up, if true- it is tasteless and I don't like it. But it doesn't change the FACT that for political reasons the Obama WH lied about the attack and the motivations behind it in order to continue their fiction that "al-Qaeda is on the run."

Thank you for posting this valuable piece.
Republicans should do the right thing and appoint George Bush to be over this RREPUBLICAN Select Committee.
When any Obama Administration member or former member makes any public statement or answers anything to this Select Committee then they should make sure the name Bush is in the answer.

No, you ignored the main point. The Bush\QTC elephant in the room. You need to pull back the curtain, like in the Wizard of Oz and see who is pushing buttons and flipping switches at the VA.
The Republicans need to stop their Select Committee on Benghazi and start on on Bush damage.

Actually the current problem with the VA is, again BUSH. The Bush wars created lots of wounded soldiers, none wounded or killed for any good reason. At the same time the baby boomers who were forced to fight another war with no real reason, Vietnam. Those people are at the age where they are needing more health treatment. So what you have is numbers of people never seen or anticipated by a system not capable of handling them. And a congress not capable of funding anything past investigations on things like Benghazi for purely political reasons or salary increases and more perks for themselves.

History is a great teacher if you will just pay attention, and now history is teaching us most of our current problems originate with Bush 2.

What happened in Benghazi to the American Embassy and Staff, was an act of terrorism. What happened in Washington, and the explanations offered by the Obama administration after Benghazi, despicable. It's about time you learned the difference.

Stop watching FNC and watch local TV, you will see for yourself the political lying taking place. One guy has his kids in the ad with holes in their clothes as he drives some old station wagon thinking this makes him a conservative. He also claims to have accomplished all kinds of things himself, not possible. One guy says I will overturn ObamaCare or go home, after he collects the check and gets the perks for life the job supplies, then he will go home. The narrow minded scope of our "problems" that get politicians elected in this state is insane. We have a lot more problems than Benghazi, nothing more than a political witch hunt aimed at Clinton or ObamaCare and that horse left the gate long ago.

Sorry Aggie. You're missing the point. Or, more accurately, dancing around the truth.

The VA is not at all an indicator of what single-payer health care would look like, for dozens of extremely obvious reasons.

You're just arguing to be arguing again.

Well it would certainly be glory for all vets if the VA medical centers were all shut down along with any QTC connections. Then allow all veterans to get their healthcare from local doctors and local medical centers. But still the VA\government must pick up the tab as promised. Too many vets go to VA hospitals because they have no other alternative.
But, don't blame me for Bush's Deranged mind. Blame his mom and dad who should have put infant Bush in a toe-sack and dropped him in a creek.
Bush, the one sound argument for abortion.
