Don't you think that Bush and Cheney should be raising funds for the veterans? After all, they are the ones that thought the wars were a good idea.

I would rather see Obama, Bush, and Cheney on the front lines. Oh scratch Cheney. He would be delighted.

Don't you mean the House and Senate, who overwhelmingly voted to invade Iraq? People should have listened to Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul; they were the outliers.

When the VA hospital is busy pushing free ****** on veterans, it seems there IS funding for things veterans want.

Oh great, Veeagra is a banned word. Maybe I should have used the medical term, Sildenafil or its humorous version, Mycoxafillin, instead?

I think it's completely appropriate for Mr Obama to fund raise for the Democratic candidates who are running against the multi-billionaire fascist and corporate plutocrat candidates whose main goal is to coddle big companies at the expense of the regular Joe.

I think that the government needs to take care of our veteran's. What ever they need for the rest of their lives when they are injuried. They went to war and they aren't treated good when they return.

When people say "wars", just what do you mean? Are you saying we shouldn't have overthrown the Taliban after 9/11/01? Why not moan and groan about Obama since he's been in charge when more than 3 times were killed in Afghanistan than when Bush was in charge. Dozens of countries went with us into Iraq but too many people think Bush was a "cowboy" who went in alone just because they hear partisan newscasters like Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw, Bob Schieffer and Brian Williams constantly chirp on that narrative. Now, as to the fundraisers. Obama spends more time attending fundraisers than running the country. Emelye, you are indeed naïve if you think Obama doesn't fit your definition of someone supporting multi-billionaires and corporate "plutocrats". What we need is for the GAO to come up with a dollar figure equal to the cost of Obama using Air Force One while shilling for the Democratic Party and his OFA PAC. It would make his $100 million vacation almost seem f

Nobody moans and groans because Obama didn't start the war - nor did he start the surge. The UK deaths spiked at the same time - blame Obama for that as well? More anecdotal nonsense. At least you know you're good at spewing bull////.

"Obama spends more time at fundraisers than running the country." And you spend more time taking dumps all over the PJ forums than you do conducting a legitimate existence. In any case, your statement is false; Obama spends no more time at fundraisers than any other president.

Also, Obama's support largely came from small donors. Ol' Mittens had all the banks and financials wrapped up last election.

irony--from--yap, take off your partisan, blue-tinted glasses and take a close look at recent history. Tell me that Obama didn't institute a "surge" in Afghanistan. Of course, he didn't listen to his military leaders and only gave them half the number of troops that they requested to do the job properly. Then Obama diddled, doodled, golfed and went to fundraisers for so many months that he wasted an entire year due to seasonal weather windows for optimal military operations. As for Obama's small donors, he broke federal campaign laws by accepting many thousands of foreign donations. So much for your "small donors" argument.

"take off your partisan, blue-tinted glasses and take a close look at recent history."

I'm not sure what part of my comment was "partisan" but please, enlighten me. You use that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Emelye how is it that you are still allowed to post things online?

Obama's entire Presidency is a campaign, it's all he knows. Those of you who think Republicans are the only war mongers fail to see Obama's foreign policy and those of you who think Republicans are the only rich greedy ones fail to see all of the greedy rich Democrats who use that rhetoric to get richer.

Those of you who think Obama is the only one who cares more about politics than the country are truly misguided because almost every Republican and Democrat alike will put politics and their jobs before the good of the country, before the good of veterans, and before the good of the people who elected them.

Most of our Representatives, red and blue, are corrupt. And it's this JOINT corruption that has been killing our country for decades. But instead of admitting that, so many of you keep calling the kettle black.

Ron Paul for President.

irony- the fact you can't even realize your partisan comments show you're too far gone in your bias. But I was pleased that there was nothing else in my comment that you could take exception to in regards to veracity.
