    Shinseki apologizes, gets summoned to White House for ominous meeting C

    Shinseki apologizes, gets summoned to White House for ominous meeting - Washington Times

    or the second time in just over a week, President Obama has called Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki to the Oval Office, the White House said Friday, raising more questions about whether the embattled secretary will offer his resignation.

    His would be a token resignation since I don't believe he had one solitary thing to do with this debacle. I'd rather see him stay and kick some ass.

    I hope Shinseki won't be forced to fall on his sword.

    While I agree that he is a token fix, Shinseki is an idiot, see the black beret incident. Get a real leader in there.

    Do you think the Admin will choose a real leader?

    Exactly. Lack of oversight and a culture of corruption falls squarely under the responsibility of the person in charge. If they don't clean house, though, the next person should go to.

    In fact, if the next person isn't given freedom to clean house then they should resign in protest.

    Firing Shinseki won't fix the problem. It will only take the focus off the real debacle, which is that Congress won't pass a bill to restructure the VA to allow Vets access to private doctors and hospitals for better care than their piss poor VA Admin centers. It's some kind of bureaucratic mess that the gov't doesn't want to fix for some reason (corruption?) and yet the hypocrites act like they care so much for Vets.

    Of course not.

    I've heard the name Mitt Romney floated around as a guy who would clean house the right way but there is zero chance Obama would ever ask for Romney's help.

    Frankly, there is enough out their in the news to bring the FBI into this. You're talking systematic fraud to generate bonuses for administrators. Some of the hostipitals had the audacity to document the fraud in memos. We're beyond firing people for incompetence, people should be going to jail for this crap.

    Now, that's an interesting idea. Where did you hear it?
