There is no proof the attack was done by Al Qaeda.
You are dumber that sh*t.
Ansar Al Sharia, an Al Qaeda like terrorist group, is blamed for the attack. The point was it was a terrorist attack and not a video.

Before you go there, an act of terror isn't a terrorist attack.

If you're going to blame Republicans, then I assume you're going to blame Democrats too.
According to your article in 2005:
"Democrats intensified charges that the Bush administration and the Republican congressional majorities are failing to care for those who put their lives on the line for the country."
The number of backlogs went from 100,000 in 2008 to almost 1 million under their watch.
Why didn't the Democrats vote to increase VA funding in 2005 under Republican leadership?
(At least Bush didn't try to hide the truth. How refreshing.)
As Obama brought all the troops home.

You know the ones that Bush sent into Afghanistan to get a man he later declared irrelevant & the troops he sent into Iraq for an oil war?

When did Bush increase the capabilities of the VA to cover these returning soldiers?

And that explains the emails proving the White House and State Department were in a conspiracy to lie to cover up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States in Benghazi.
You still haven't answered some questions:
... let's just jump to this one:
How did CNN know exactly what the Obama lie would be when they abruptly changed their story line about the demonstrations they had been reporting on all day in the hours before the attack in Benghazi began, matching exactly what the Obama lie would be for two weeks after the attack?
lol! No son. It only proves reich wing nuts are desperate and afraid of Hillary.

Red States Like Obamacare More Than You Might Think

Of the 22 states that exceeded enrollment expectations when it came to signing up for health benefits under the Affordable Care Act, half of them were from traditionally Republican-leaning states that are generally considered unsupportive of President Obama and certainly didn’t help him electorally in the last election.

A new analysis from Avalere Health issued last week found that enrollment on government-run exchanges where Americans could sign up for health benefits met or exceeded expectations in 22 states. Of those, Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah exceeded enrollment expectations, according to Avalere’s analysis, which also accounted “for any attrition due to nonpayment of premiums.”

The analysis assumed 85 percent of enrollees paid the first month’s premium. Such a percentage tracks along with other estimates of who paid, including that of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, which has said 80 to 85 percent of Blues plan enrollees through February had paid.

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.

Hundreds of climatologists around the world today recognize global warming and you cite a news report from 1971 as evidence it's a hoax!

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?

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...."
