give it a break carol.
The Bush administration disclosed yesterday that it had vastly underestimated the number of service personnel returning from Iraq and Afghanistan seeking medical treatment from the Department of Veterans Affairs, and warned that the health care programs will be short at least $2.6 billion next year unless Congress approves additional funds.
Veterans Affairs budget documents projected that 23,553 veterans would return this year from Iraq and Afghanistan and seek medical treatment. However, Veterans Affairs Secretary Jim Nicholson told a Senate committee that the number has been revised upward to 103,000 for the fiscal year that ends Sept. 30. He said the original estimates were based on outdated assumptions from 2002.
"The bottom line is there is a surge in demand in VA [health] services across the board," Nicholson told the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee.
Just last week, the VA revealed that the rise in demand for VA health facilities had caused a $1 billion shortfall in operating funds for the current year. That would more than double in the coming year without congressional intervention.
Senate Republicans, embarrassed and angered over the revelations, yesterday announced plans to pass emergency legislation this morning to add $1.5 billion to the fiscal 2005 appropriation. The move is designed to appease angry veterans groups and preempt a Democratic proposal calling for $1.42 billion in increased VA spending.
The action represents a reversal of GOP policies toward the VA. For the past four months, House and Senate Republicans have repeatedly defeated Democratic amendments to boost VA medical funding.

and did Bush ever go to a Iraq war Vet's funeral?
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.)

"...At a press conference on November 5 Fujimura confessed he had planted Stone Age artifacts at the site, and had faked many discoveries. He kept his head bowed in shame during the conference and said, "I was tempted by the Devil. I don't know how I can apologise for what I did... I wanted to be known as the person who excavated the oldest stoneware in Japan."

I said that in the immediate aftermath that until an investigation said otherwise, it should be considered.
It's impossible to determine if the terrorists were motivated or not by the video. It's almost certain they saw the video and who can say that it didn't play some role in the attack. It is pure folly to try to look into the minds of Islamic terrorists to determine what makes them do anything. We have our own idiots here, what makes DBWriter post the dumbass stuff on Topix? He's just as crazy as they are, only difference is he just talks crazy, they act out his fantasies.

.....by last week, with Rutgers students waving signs calling Rice a "war criminal" during a sit-in outside Barchi's office and professors planning a "teach-in" about her war record, it had all become too much.
.....The professors said Rice had contributed to misleading the public about the presence of weapons of mass destruction in the run-up to the Iraq War and condoned the Bush Administration's use of waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques of prisoners.

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.

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?

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?
