Obama makes no effort to help Veterans, he could care less.
Almost historic numbers of backlogs of Veterans seeking help and not getting it from the Obama administration.

I am truly amazed that President Obama has allowed this to happen and I haven't heard this in any of the mainstream media. I have researched and find this all to be shockingly true.
I have never cared much for politics and do not consider myself a democrat ora republican.
I was unsure of who to vote for but this article makes it very clear to me that we as a nation can do better, much better for our veterans and President Obama is not the man to get it done.

Wounded men because Demons like Cheney and Bush started a no win war in Iraq. Not only did it cost us 1 trillion dollars up to now,it will cost us another trillion paying vets for the next 60 years. There has got to be a special place come judgement day for these monster leaders who rob and kill their own for personal gain but also the lives of Iraquis who were killed and wounded for life.

What I find most disgusting is the politicizing of the war in Iraq, many democrats forget that they supported this war and went by the intelligence that the President received but that is beside the point, Obama obviously has turned his back on our veterans. He should be ashamed.

Nah, not making this more of a priority falls squarely on this administration, they could speed this up but choose not to.
But if these were applications for government assistance to get an abortion they would be done that same day.

Can't believe this president would stoop to such lows, I think he has always disliked the military and veterans because of his political upbringing.

Interesting article, I cannot believe that this could happen in these troubling times.
It's like America has lost her priorities in the last few years.

Well come 2013 we will have a lean but mean highly trained army that hopefully won't be sent to wars where a few make billions and the rest of us pay for it.

There will be less abuses by the DEA and FBI of our constitution via the Patriot Act. You see there is going to be an automatic cut-back in the Justice Dept. budget as well as the military.

What makes anyone think obama cares about veterans?
He HATES the military and veterans, except for maybe the Russians since during the tribute to veterans at the democrat convention they had Russian warships pictures flashing all over the bigscreen
