President Obama addressed the press on Wednesday after meeting with Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki about the recent scandal swirling around the Veterans Affairs Department.
Addressing the reports of misconduct by VA officials, Obama vowed that he would get to the bottom of the alleged behavior. If these allegations prove to be true it is dishonorable, it is disgraceful and I will not tolerate it. Period, he said.
Taking care of veterans and their families has been one of the causes of my presidency and it is something that all of us have to be involved with and have to be paying attention to, he claimed.
Obama did not offer particular solutions to the veterans backlog problems, which he explained had gone on for years. He also indicated that he would stand by Shinseki throughout the investigation process.
You know the responsibility for things always rests ultimately with me as the president and commander in chief, Obama said, calling Shinseki a great soldier.
Obama did not announce Shinsekis resignation but left the possibility open when questioned by reporters.
I know Rics attitude is that if he does not think he is able to do a good job on this and if he thinks that he let our veterans down then Im sure that hes not going to be interested in continuing to serve, Obama said....

Yeah. “If you like your VA benefits, you can keep them.” Period.
Will focus on this like a laser; will not rest.
Maybe Shinseki’s getting payback on the Vets for the WW II Internment Camps.
LOL! POSOTUS is on his period, again.
OK, I usually dislike humor relying upon crude language but I laughed out loud at that one.
The undocumented Impostor was told about this
YEARS ago, and did NOTHING.
Because he ONLY does things to hurt America and Americans.
While the EXEMPT Congress supports his treason. x 5 years.
What I don't get is how Bush can be cordial to this POS. I am not an apologist for Bush either because were it not for him, there would be no Obama presidency.
So, this has been going on since your tenure in office and starting right now, you’re not going to tolerate it anymore because you’re madder than hell?
And to all you veterans, GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
Obama: “I Wont Tolerate Misconduct at Veterans Affairs Department, Period
...unless its committed by offcials of my utterly corrupt and staggeringly incompetent administration.”
It is amazing that Americans aren’t turning on the media yet.
Are these the same Vets identified as possible terrorists by DHS? Zero sure seems to have a grudge against Vets!
Mark Steyn (Tuesday) and Rush Limbaugh (Wednesday, today) sketched out how this will go.
The VA scandal doesn’t cling to the Won quite the way that the other scandals do. Therefore, the Won will focus on the VA scandal and the MSM will also focus on the VA. This fills up the time so no one can get airtime to talk about Obamacare or the economy. Next week or sometime, Obama will fire Shinseki, but first the Won will find some left leaning vet who needed help, get him/her (better a her) fixed up..the vet does a testimonial, the MSM swoon and the Won smiles big time and takes his victory lap. The low info voters say....That’s my guy!
Clown Prince nobama is an utter sick joke. Bah!
Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about desires for sex change operations by incarcerated Privates.
Sounds like the fake outrage by the Governor(Mel Brooks) in Blazing Saddles “Gentlemen, we have to do something to protect our phony baloney jobs! Harumph!”
Barack Obama—the worst President America has ever had to endure.
Here come da smidgens. Here come da smidgens.
