    That’s great mr Obama, but here is a harder one. Can you name the thousands of veterans that died waiting for years to see a va doctor under your administration?

  4. Phil McCraken says:

    Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Oh, wait, those are the 4 brave Americans he left to die in Benghazi. Bet he couldn’t name a single one.
