When a person does not have anything intelligent to say then they must resort to saying something asinine (which I consider to be a measured and dignified term to describe Simon). Simon was probably one of those who used to call our Vietnam veterans "baby burners". He fits right in with Matthews, Schultz, Krugman, and the rest of the intellectually bereft left wing media barnacles.
Only TWO fundraisers? I thought he had a three fundraiser minimum before he would attempt to do anything that remotely resembled a task pertinent to his official duties as POTUS. He must really be taking this one seriously. I'm sure his outrage will galvanize the world into action to resolve this "bump in the road". It gets more sickening every day.
Doc, you fit right in with the ranters. Your emotionalism shines through very glaringly. Yes it is true that the vets have been short-changed for many years. The current criticism from the right is that BO and his bride were so appalled by the condition when they arrived that they were going to make it all better; but much like most issues else HE ranted about during the campaign process, he has done nothing to really fix anything. He has proven himself (and Her) to be an empty suit who is a great campaigner and deflector. Hence the response of J_inVT.
I may have missed it, but I could not find any information regarding the detailed analysis that resulted in the finding that $18B would be needed to "fix the problem". Sloan came up with that number rather quickly given the depth and breadth of the problems at the VA. I suspect it was a top-down WAG that was intended to put those who would demand that some fiscal responsibility and effective management be put in place in a bad light if they balked at that amount. First should come the streamlining and updating of policies, procedures, practices, and processes, then look to see how much money is needed for the future. Sloan has done nothing to FIX the problems so far - and our vets will continue to suffer as a result. Damn those high-handed Washington elitist ba$tard$ to hell!

Five years later, the column has stood the test of time. Thank you again, Thomas.
Please, let's not insult mules that way. Dumb as rocks would be more appropriate. You are right that more and more people in Colorado are noticing since the 2X4 hit their skulls.
Udall's TV ads have been exclusively abortion oriented. He has no other card to play. He is showing weakness, which is not surprising since he is a left-wing elitist. Gardner has begun to hit him on the economy, Obamacare, and other issues. We can only hope they have a plan to ramp it up as election day approaches. We need concerned citizens in all states to work against the Dems running for office - local, state, or national - since the party is controlled by left-wing radicals.

Why doesn't BO just have her meet with an "unfortunate accident"? After all, that would be consistent with the left's philosophy of "whatever it takes".

JB probably doesn't care if it's a living human being. If it is inconvenient, trash it. JB's use of the phrase "...manacle her to a bed for 9 months?" is typical left wing distortion of the situation and demonization of the opposition by use of radical emotional statements. The woman can have an abortion, it is just who is responsible for facilitating it - fortunately for now not Hobby Lobby and hopefully not the Little Sisters of the Poor.
