CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: If you are non-ideological, if you brought in some experts and say how do you attack the problem right now? You give everybody on the list a voucher to go anywhere they want and they'll get their care within days. And if the budget won't hold it, then you do a separate appropriation. I can't see anybody in Congress who would op
REP. NANCY PELOSI (D-CA): Maybe when we go into war, we should be thinking about its consequences and its ramifications. You would think that would be a given, but maybe it wasn't. And so, we go in a war in Afghanistan, leave Afghanistan for Iraq with unfinished business in Afghanistan. Ten years later, we have all of these additional veterans. In
HOWARD DEAN: Well, first of all, let's not forget the roots of Politico is on the right. It was financed by Joe Allbritton, who was a right-wing Texan before he passed away.

Well, let me tell you, let me talk about just comment on that cost. President Bu
JON STEWART: Let's pretend that this current VA crisis is an anomaly created by one unusually callous and ineffective president, but that would be just pretend. Or, on this Memorial Day weekend eve, we can finally admit that America has had, for over 200 years, a great bipartisan tradition of honoring those who have fought for our freedom by f*ckin
MSNBC: Earning the title of Ed Schultz’s “Pretender,” half-term Governor Sarah Palin criticizes President Obama for “being lazy,” forgetting she failed to complete her job.
ALAN COLMES: I don't think it's on his radar. He has been involved in other things. I just think his focus has been elsewhere. In terms of someone like Shinseki, I don't know that he deserves to resign or not yet, but that may be the case. I don't think the president likes to fire people.
