Nancy Pelosi blames George W. Bush
for Veterans Affairs scandal

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Original Article

Posted By:Avanti1, 5/23/2014 2:42:41 PM

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., repeatedly put the blame for the Veterans Affairs scandal on former President George W. Bush, while arguing that her party has worked hard for veterans in recent years. Pelosi took a shot at Bush while saying that the scandal is a high priority for Obama. "He sees the ramifications of some seeds that were sown a long time ago, when you have two wars over a long period of time and many, many more, millions more veterans," she told reporters during her Thursday press briefing. "And so, I know that he is upset about it."

Comments:
News Flash!!

Ms. Pelosi: Obama has had over six years to address the issue of VA care for veterans. Instead of things getting better on his watch, they have gotten WORSE.

Instead of whining about your predecessors, it is time for you [Pelosi] and Obama to resign and turn over your offices to adults.

Pelosi needs to check the number of dead and wounded in the Bush Presidency vs. the number of dead and wounded in the Obama regime. Of course the truth won´t stop her.

Let´s see if I understand Nasty Pelosi. This mess started under Bush and Obama has had six years to fix it but has not even started; in fact, the mess is worse now than when it started. Meanwhile, Obama has had time to play 150 rounds of golf; throw many parties at the WH; go on million dollar vacations; watch hours of TV; criss cross the country every week reading his teleprompter; play cards with his buddy. He hasn´t had time to meet with his cabinet. He just walks out saying "Uh,huh, you handle it." Kind of like Bill Clinton telling the woman he raped to "put some ice on it." She really does not live on this planet.

I was wondering how long it would take for this to be blamed on President Bush. Obama claims not to have known about this and that is an excuse? He SHOULD have known about this because he is the leader of the United States.

Nancy, your comment about having two wars under George Bush is typical of Democrat thinking. Maybe if Clinton would have taken action against Osama Bin Laden, the terrorism wouldn´t have come on our soil.

President Obama is a a big boy now and should be able to handle what came to his desk when he took office. He should have known that he would have responsibilities and would have to lead.

Stop with the excuses, it´s 2014. You´ve had more than enough time.

Fair enough. "Nation building" damaged a lot of our armed forces. All we wanted was simple thing - taking out Saddam and his thugs. Instead W (and to a lesser extent Barry) gave us almost ten years of deadly conveys and IEDs. Our superb medical teams saved many tens of thousands of soldiers lives, who would have ended up in earlier wars as KIA. So now we have that many more damaged Vets and the greater costs of caring for them.

Time for America to pay the piper.

Good one, #17! Does Pelosi never tire of smearing our former President? I don´t think she could get away with it if the MSM didn´t ignore every good thing W has done since leaving office. I wish leaders of veterans´ groups would step forward and say something at a presser. Do ya think would shut Ms. Pelosi up?

When you try to schedule an appointment with a VA doctor in April and they give you an appointment the end of August you gotta know that there is a problem, and you can bet that there are a big bunch of veterans to who that happened.

In Washington, growing chorus calls for
Iraq´s Maliki to go
Reuters, by Patricia Zengerle    Original Article

President Barack Obama came under pressure from U.S. lawmakers on Wednesday to persuade Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to step down over what they see as failed leadership in the face of an insurgency threatening his country. As Obama held an hour-long meeting with congressional leaders on U.S. options in Iraq, administration officials joined a chorus of criticism of Maliki, faulting him for failing to heal sectarian rifts that militants have exploited. Army General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. military´s Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a congressional hearing that Maliki´s Shi´ite-led government had asked for U.S. air power

Top Republican officials on Sunday defended raising questions about Hillary Clinton’s health and age as she weighs a presidential bid in 2016. “Health and age is fair game,” said Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I’m not a doctor. What I do know is that the issue is going to come up as it does for any person running for president.” Added former Vice President Dick Cheney, who appeared on Fox: “Any presidential candidate or vice presidential candidate is going to have to answer questions about their health.” The comments come after longtime GOP political operative Karl Rove,

Murrieta, California is ground zero in America’s war against illegal aliens who are swarming our border. The Obama regime is not stopping the illegals. They are in fact doing everything they can to facilitate the entry of illegals into this nation. In California, and a lot of other places, real Americans have had enough. (Snip) According to media reports, the Obama regime is going to deploy riot squads to make sure those buses get through. The Regime cannot close off the border but it is going to use riot police to attack real Americans! This is simply beyond belief. Illegal aliens are just that, illegal.

HOUSTON, Texas--As illegal immigrants continue to spill across the U.S.-Mexico border, federal authorities are attempting to relocate the migrants from South Texas to housing facilities in states across the nation. One such facility is located in Murrieta, California, where a large group of protesters recently blocked a bus full of migrants from arriving. The protesters remain there, adamant that illegal immigrants don´t get dumped in their town.

At Arizona State University, female students can earn extra credit by agreeing to not shave their armpits and legs for ten weeks. Breanne Fahs, a professor of women and gender studies, has made the special offer to her students as a way to encourage them to challenge social norms. “There’s no better way to learn about societal norms than to violate them and see how people react,” she told ASU News. “There’s really no reason why the choice to shave, or not, should be a big deal. But it is, as the students tend to find out quickly.” Female students looking to earn

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels.

The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article. A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States. The 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States. Experts say that

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the

Tom Donohue is the President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the CoC.
