Nothing will be done. This is so Obama can say he fixed it.

The media may lose interest in the story now. They will say that Shinseki is gone, so that fixes the problem. Now let’s move on to more war on women crap, or pushing global warming, or some other liberal talking points.

Good for Eric.
He can move past this low paying cabinet post and go on to make some serious dough in lobbying and consulting.

This should have been the first thing that happened, as soon as the story broke. Unfortunately, knowing Washington, this will be the end of the story, not the beginning.

We can all rest easy that the problem is solved. Shenseki resigned.
Of course I am being sarcastic.

This is an Obama appointee, and he failed....the results...American veterans suffered and died. This needs to be repeated over and over.

Hang it around Obama’s neck and don’t let him squirm out of it.

Hagel, Kerry, Holder, and the rest are as incompetent as Shinseki. But the most incompetent is their boss.

Good question. Without exception, every single time someone has stepped down from a position in the Obama Administration, that person has been replaced by someone of even lesser competence.

I'm concerned that a few of the least politically correct heads will roll, giving a false sense of ‘fixing’ the problem, and the kneepad media will let the story fade away.

Then business as usual. Don't forget this gives a very real window of what obamacare will do to us so they've got to squash the story asap. Hopefully the sheeple will forget.

Not only is it an Obama appointee, but a hero to the left because of his public criticism of Bush and Iraq strategy.

Once again, the brilliant people on the left are an utter failure.

I would want detailed accounts of this guy’s interaction with Obama and what his marching order were from the White House. Firing him just absolves Obama and his “all this for a damned flag” wife, in my opinion.

Obozamma just blamed BUSH (predecessor) for the VA problems.
Cited lack of $$$...but we all KNOW that VA spending has increased over the years...

Said he was aware of VA issues when he was a Senator in 2008...promised to fix them when he became Idiot in Chief...

“Where we have seen a problem,,, we have gone after it and fixed it.”

B.S.

Where and when were those problems and where and when were those fixed?
