Skip to comments.POtuS will not fire VA Head Shinseki
Posted on 05/21/2014 8:33:17 AM PDT by WMarshal
Obama has circled the wagons around his incompetent, crooked crony Shinseki as is his usual practice.
How could the Tyrant fire a stooge who KNOWS
he knew for years, and planned ObamaCARE/DeathCARE
to “work” ... the same way.
He won’t fire him because it was all done at Zero’s request. They can display all the false outrage they want but none of these bozos get fired, not Lerner, not Sebellius and not Shineski. They’ll stall for a couple of years and they send out some punk who will say Dude that was like 2 years ago. Meanwhile the executive orders keep coming like a flood.
This must be the only general that 0 likes?
Nobody ever gets fired under this POtuS. You can murder babies, vets, and you will be just FINE and probably get a bonus, promotion or anything else that will enrich your life in a meaningful way.
Watched it on FNC. This isn’t going to make the problem go away for FUBO. Both he and Shinseki had to know this was going on. Either that or they are both stupid ( which is also likely). Either way, this will help FUBO out the door with the voters.
Maybe Shinseki gave Obama a Black Beret when Shinseki became part of the Incompetent Love Regime and Obama was so touched that he will never let Shinseki go.
Well Obama thinks he’s just fixed everything by making a statement ,like every other scandal
Yeah, Barky was using his “angry voice” to express his fake outrage. As soon as he took questions from the presstitutes he went back to “cool Baraq” again.....
The president also said that he was “very angry”
Immediately followed by his off stage exit question to aides....
What is my Tee Time ????????
As soon as he took questions from the presstitutes he went back to cool Baraq again.....
In other words.... I expect you to not make anything of this.......
No one cares more than B-HO (right up until next week when he will proclaim it a phoney scandal).
I could not what that POS
BUT I think maybe NOT firing Shenseki was the right thing.
If the POS had fired him all the news would have been on the new hire
and Perhaps maybe shenseki can force BO and Congress to allow him, ( shenseki) to actually GIRE people.
That aeems the real problem NO ONE can get fired right now.
Yes this is something shenseki should have tried to do for YEARS
but if we have to hire a new one that delays getting this fixed.
ANYONE who knows about federal employees knows they can’t be fired
The President fire employees
The President fire appointees
The President cannot afford to fire co-conspirators who can turn states evidence that wrong doing leads directly to him
He actually said “Period” in the press conference. That’s got legs.
Oh he could be fired by potus. Not a person would defend him
I wonder if its partly because no one would want that job right now
Same w Sebelius and everyone. BO has to worry he can’t hire anyone
Also though he just can’t care about our vets any more than musring up a statement 3 wks after the scandal broke
He likely won’t talk about it again. It’s not like he cares about what anyone thinks of him. Certainly not vet loyalists
Well we all know his “periods” are always followed by a “but”.
Whenever zippy uses investigation, that's code for: He isn't going to do anything about it. Best example off hand is Benghazi. He promised an "investigation" of that act of war.
I think that they went to the same high school. At different times.
I think that they went to the same high school. At different times.
Unicorn High in the state of Utopia?
And it’s looking more and more like he Muslim Brotherhood.
The reason is that Obama doesn't want the spectacle of a confirmation hearing for his replacement that will expose all the dirty deeds of the VA during the upcoming mid-term elections.
Democrats would get clobbered if a VA nominee hearing were going on during the mid-terms.
We do not know how long this has been going on
It a regulation problem. They have been told to place certain people on permanent hold waiting for appts
Bush was not a great potus and the va has always had flaws but lets not ascribe this obamadontcare attitude onto them
Have proof that this was going on before ? Or is it a ‘feeling’ or opinion that you think brings it to the level of fact
I am as big a supporter of W as anyone. I voted for him4 times
But yes problems have been going on at the VA before the POS 0dumbo.
We know Bush’s team alerted 0dumbo’s team during the transition
So did they flat out say wait times were being manipulated? since they haven’t said what was in the report we don’t know.
MUCH of the current problem is actually due to Clinton opening up VA care to anyone who served, even as few as 2 years but he did not increase the number of medical care team.
This is ramping up now as so many more come back and get out, tie this to the high unemployment rate and it is easy to see the issue
NONE of that excuses what is going on
but please do not put words in my post. Bush cares more for the vets than either Carter Clinton or this POS ever will
We don’t know. That’s all we don’t know
Geeze. Is it too much to expect people to not be leftist like and say they or we know something when we do not know it?
We do not know
That’s so simple
Are you saying there haven’t been major problems at the VA even before this POS?
As big a supporter of Bush as I am does not mean I can’t acknowledge he is not perfect. There were many problems uncovered during Bush years.Remember the horror at Walter reed? Remember the patients dying at the Dallas Va? etc
The scheduling problem is just one of many.
Unlike that POS 0dumbo though Bush did not have to hear it on the news. He tried to fix what he could.
I attended a press conference by wounded warriors recuperating at Walter Reed who told the press it was not nearly as bad as portrayed in the media.
So you asked if I have “ proof” this has been going on?
or did I just “ think “ it
here from wash times
‘The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care problems that have turned into a growing scandal.
Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldnt trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.

I am NOT blaming Bush so get off that but you also need to know the facts
I never said anyone died at Walter reed
but the fact is that facility was not equipped for the number of injured it was getting as it was already scheduled to close
I was there and the conditions were not that great
I AM NOT BLAMING BUSH. GET IT?
I am saying there have been issues for several years at the VA
This is NO way lets the POS 0dumbo off the hook
I AM NOT BLAMING BUSH
“Hey! Hey! O-Bam-Ay!
How many Vets did you kill today?”
Obama is mentally ill. The easiest thing in the world to deal with this would be for him to fire Shinseki. But, he just can’t do it. That would be admitting that there’s been a mistake, and he can’t do that. That’s mental illness. Reid and Pelosi and Schumer are getting ready to take that long, sad midnight walk to the back door of the White House where they tell Obama he’s sick and needs to resign.
Actually, the president has great latitude to fire federal employees. Remember when President Reagan fired every single federal aircraft controller when he warned them not to strike? Strike they did and fired they were! Sure they can try in court to overturn the firing but in the meantime, they are fired and out of the bureaucracy.
Reagan had guts AND the Air Traffic controllers in mass clearly violated their contract.
believe me it is nearly impossible to fire a federal employee.
yes 0dumbo could fire shineksi but at this point I don’t know if that is the smartest.
I HOPE there is so much pressure Shinseki buckles down and fires all those under him who went along with the appointment fraud scheme
There are enough whistleblowers now that for sure hundreds should be fired. NO compensation No laterls moves
LOSS of Job
of course I am dreaming
but this isn’t going away
