And, as I have said before, Obama is left to clean up someone else's mess.
Since making a point seems to be the focus...the point is Obama promised to make the problems with the VA a priority in 2008. Yes, there were more wounded veterans since that time - but if he made a promise, he had to do a much better job of keeping it.

Not read about it in the newspapers.

The other point is Obama's priorities have always been misplaced ever since taking office.

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) joined the charge of politicians calling for a review of gun control legislation on Sunday in the wake of a gunman's deadly rampage on the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara.
King, a longtime advocate of stricter gun control policies, told the Washington Post that the incident reinforces the argument for expanding background checks for gun owners.
“This tragedy demonstrates once again the need to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill,” he said.
King added that any effort to convince House leadership to bring gun control legislation up this summer will be "very difficult," saying gun control advocates in Congress need to "focus the discussion" surrounding mental illness and access to firearms.
The Republican said his party should not give up efforts to thwart powerful gun advocacy groups, according to the Washington Post.
“Even though this issue may not be popular in particular congressional districts, if we want to be a national party, we ought to be looking closely at it,” he said.

looking closely....
Sixty-five percent of Americans say the U.S. Senate should have passed the measure that would have expanded background checks for gun purchases, while 29% agree with the Senate's failure to pass the measure.

King should be removed from office as a danger to society.

Obama is in Afghanistan telling the troops this is their last tour and that most of them will be withdrawn by year's end.
"Karzai stunned the White House by refusing to sign a bilateral security agreement needed to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan after this year. His decision has delayed U.S. decision making on a post-2014 presence, leading Obama to ask the Pentagon to work up plans for a possible full withdrawal of American forces.
"But with both candidates on the ballot in next month's Afghan presidential election runoff vowing to quickly sign the security agreement, Obama appeared more confident Sunday that there would be a continued U.S. troop presence after 2014.
"The final American troops withdrew from Iraq in the closing days of 2011 after the U.S. and Iraq failed to reach a security agreement to keep a small American residual force in the country. In the years that have followed the American withdrawal, Iraq has been battered by resurgent waves of violence."
http://news.msn.com/world/obama-signals-us-to...
Please note this president's eagerness to withdraw all troops at the first sign of resistance by Karzai.
And how this was his response in Iraq.
And the consequences of his ducking and running in Iraq.
Historical figures are remembered across a gamut of emotion that includes negative territory. Most, I think, are stuck with remembrances around Zero meaning that the public neither hates nor loves them but treats them with hopefully benign neglect.

U.S. Presidents are no different in this regard. People might visit Kennedy's gravesite with honor and respect and, of course, the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument the same.

But I believe the Magic Negro has passed a tipping point that where, in the future, his gravesite will need to be secured from vandalism and urinating dogs.

Yeah, that was a big headline the other day Thought it was going to happen tomorrow the way it was written.
According to one of the "two teams of scientists" who did a "pair of tests" as reported in the National Geographic: "If the whole glacier system melts, it would raise global sea levels about 24 inches. The process will take a while, roughly 200 to 900 years depending on how fast temperatures rise and how much snow falls in the area."
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/...
Of course, it was only "two teams of scientists" who did a "pair of studies" predicting doomsday in possibly 2 to 9 centuries...depending.
So how much damage can a rise of only 24 inches do? Having to wade in two feet of extra water at the beach? Moving the beach chairs back a few more feet? What?
You really are abysmally stupid aren't you? Don't you realize that there are many parts of coastal cities like Miami that are below 2 feet above sea level? What about what happens in those areas that are above that mark during a storm surge caused by a Hurricane dumbass? Higher sea levels would cause the surge to go even further inland creating more damage. We saw what happened during hurricane Sandy when homes that had been built decades ago and didn't sustain damage during previous hurricanes were inundated because sea levels have gone up not by feet but a few inches. A two foot rise would cause exponentially more damage over a much larger area. Let's also not forget that there are countries like Bangladesh that are low lying and would radically be reduced in land area causing population displacements and loss of arable land and thus food supplies.
But go ahead Carol; keep demonstrating what an ignorant, clueless twit you are as you do on a daily basis.

I love it when you morons on the right start every day with either the same old lies or fresh ones that you were programmed overnight by your favorite watering hole FIXED news. Considering all of the messes left behind by Dumbo and Snarly Obama has done a pretty decent job, in spite of the daily attempts by the do nothing Congress to continue down that road.

As for your Gallup poll source, it was dated October 29-30, 2011.
That was when most Americans believed a small U.S. force would remain to guard the U.S. embassy along with training and protecting the Iraqis.
The Iraqis, themselves, according to many reports, believed the American presence there created some animosity but their worst fear was having no American troops remaining.
Their worst fears are now realized.
according to many reports that you can't cite. and i do mean 'can't'.

Speaking of urinating dogs at least they don't have to use a bag to accomplish that feat.Almost 44,000 posts, what a life you have there whiney azzed crybaby. Maybe on your grave site we could simply hang your bag. Along with maybe a notation that reads " here lies a by-sexual that never contributed a single thing towards society" The only purpose baggers serve is as a bad example...That be you.

And you're just gullible enough to believe he never had them and never used them and wouldn't develop them again as soon as the world wasn't watching anymore to unleash them here in our country with a vengeance paying the selected "delivery man's" family handsomely.
You forgot to mention that part.
When did I ever say he never had WMD Carol? We know he used them during the Iraq-Iran war and used them against the Kurds. Where was the outrage from the Reagan administration or those on the right? Only six months after the slaughter at Halabja, the White House lent Saddam Hussein another billion dollars. And in 1991, at the end of the Gulf war, US troops stood idly by while Saddam’s presidential guard ruthlessly suppressed the popular uprising by the Kurds for which the American president had himself called.
The Iran Survey Groups report destroyed the rationale that Bush used to send our troops into harms way. The report, which refuted many of the administration's principal arguments for going to war in Iraq, marked the official end of a two-year weapons hunt led most recently by former U.N. weapons inspector Charles A. Duelfer. The team found that the 1991 Persian Gulf War and subsequent U.N. sanctions had destroyed Iraq's illicit weapons capabilities and that, for the most part, Hussein had not tried to rebuild them. Iraq's ability to produce nuclear arms, which the administration asserted was a grave and gathering threat that required an immediate military response, had "progressively decayed" since 1991. Investigators found no evidence of "concerted efforts to restart the program."
If Bush had let the UN inspectors finish their job we would have come up with the same conclusion without sacrificing American lives and treasure to no good purpose. You don't send our military into harms way for something someone "might" do.

Intelligent Design. It's gaining traction in the scientific world because science, nature and the spiritual world are all intertwined anyway and a lot of scientists are beginning to figure it out.
Wrong again Carol. Nobody in the scientific community takes intelligent design which is just creationism rebranded seriously.
Where's your evidence that they are?

It's been nearly four years since the Kalamazoo spill and clean-up is still not over. Damn Republicans.
It's our hope, you and Barack Hussein Obama, wear out shoe leather walking? Of course as the Limo Lieberals that both of you proport to be, isn't going to happen anytime soon? "Do as I say not as I do", Lieberals to the core...

Oh, I've figured it out already. The answer you're reluctant to give is "theft". All the big name dictators have used it. Different styles, different pretenses, but always the same goal. And inevitably, the same result.
Another pathetic excuse for an American who thinks supporting their country is the government stealing from them.

If you don't want to support your country, leave it.
