Obama: I'll have 'serious conversation' with Shinseki (Did Hillary Demand Firing at Secret Meeting?)

Washington (CNN) -- President Obama said he will have a "serious conversation" with Veterans Affairs' Secretary Eric Shinseki about whether he's the right person to address the veterans' care crisis.

The comment, made during an interview taped Thursday for "Live! with Kelly and Michael," was played on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday.

With calls for him to resign hanging over his head, Shinseki on Friday will face representatives of people particularly vulnerable to his agency's medical failings.

If Shinseki is fired today, I guarantee it was on orders of Hillary Clinton who made the DEMAND to Obama at their not so secret meeting yesterday:

HILLARY: You MUST fire Shinseki tomorrow!

OBAMA: I will study your suggestion.

HILLARY: DAMMIT! This is an ORDER, not a suggestion.

OBAMA: I will consider it after studying the suggestion.

HILLARY: DO IT!!!

OBAMA: I promise I will do something.

HILLARY: Fire him tomorrow or I reveal what you were doing during Benghazi.

OBAMA: I will fire him tomorrow.

H: “Get this cleaned up before I announce for ‘16.”

O: “I’ll study it.”

H: “I still have those files from ‘07.”

O: “Get Shinseki in here now!”

A “serious conversation”? Wow, Obama is really on the job. Maybe he will put Shinseki on “double secret probation”. That will teach him.

Wasn’t Shinseki the clown who decided it wasn’t “fair” for the special forces to be the only ones who could wear berets? Or was that some other shit for brains with a foreign name?

When Greenwald releases the names of those the NSA has been spying on, think FR or any FReepers will be on it? Hmmmm?

Obama has the management wisdom of a 4 year old.

I.e., none.

I’m figuring the Greenwald name release might be today because it will be talked about over the weekend. But I could be wrong. It is supposed to be soon.

Shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic isn't the solution. The peson replacing Shinseki needs to have real power to make changes and can't be some political figurehead. He has to clean house, fire and even have people indicted, and maybe even look into privatizing some of the VA medical functions. Unfortunately, I don't see Congress passing the kind of legislation that will allow him to to that.

I’m guessing he will draw a red line and send a sternly worded letter.

Yowser. A serious conversation? That’s pretty darned harsh. It’s almost right up there with being deeply concerned.

What a joke this fraud is.....I hope the world recovers from this mess in the White House. Michelle Malkin understated it when she called them the culture of corruption.

Hillary not mentioned in the article. It is ridiculous to think the subject of the VA ever came up. No doubt Benghazi did now that we have a select committee investigating it.

“Today I am reluctantly announcing the resignation of Eric Shinseki. I really didn’t want him to leave but I can’t tolerate the aggravation that Hillary gave me yesterday demanding that he be fired so I chose the path of least annoyance.”

I think it’s going to be a big deal because the NSA will be found to be spying on a lot of people who are in no way shape or form terrorists or a national security threat by any reasonable definition, but merely on the opposite end of the political spectrum from Obama/Demps/Progs/Libs. Just as the IRS was used to target only Tea Party/Conservative groups, the NSA will have been used for political purposes. Maybe with specific names disclosed, people will get mad enough to do something .... just as Obamacare hits individual pocketbooks, healthcare etc .... it’s different when it’s “personal”.

A SERIOUS CONVERSATION WITH SHINSEKI

"Listen man, you are cramping my style. I can't have the press going all postal on my @$$.
Somebody has got to go down for this and it ain't gonna be me."

Yep, He’ll resign so that “he isn’t the issue and the vets healthcare can get fixed”. Obama accepts, new one appointed, no changes, media drops the story until after Hillary serves two terms and the next GOP elected gets blamed.

Though this is rude picture, and mildly NSFW, someone suggested elsewhere this should be the status of Shinseki when answering questions about the VA misconduct.

Again, somewhat NSFW.

Providing aid and comfort to Al Qaeda is a serious crime. Hillary and Obama got together to go over their lies to try and keep from being prosecuted.
I don’t care if Hillary and Obama provided aid and comfort to Al Qaeda because they are hardened saboteurs or they are just idiots. Treason is treason.
