    A new commander isn't going to change the culture or the bureaucracy at the VA anymore than the last four or five firings and resignations did.



    Twenty years from now the VA will still be as screwed up as a Chinese fire drill. It might even be worse than it is now.

    Don't take my word for this, wait and see.

    Now we know what he said.
    Let's see what he does.

    who knows, but he's always been such a solid, dependable man of his word..."I didn't say that, what I said was you can keep your plan unless the insurance company changes it."

    Man of his word, it's only the words that keep changing. Can't blame him.
    He's got OJ working it.

    Damn shame for Shinseki, having to hit the golf links a week early.

    Seems to me he stood for it a long time.
    He's kinda screwed no matter what. Suppose he fires the head of the VA. Why? For knowing it was ****ed up and doing nothing about it? Hell, thats his whole administration. For NOT knowing it was ****ed up in the first place? Again...his WHOLE administration. For failure to provide adequate oversight? Thats three for three.

    Hillary didn't have to resign. Well what difference, at this point, does it make?

    Only after he lied about WMDs that the French had, hence the French-Indian war.

    I admire a man who knows his history. They should teach that in all 57 states.
