    WASHINGTON President Obama said Friday that Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki will resign in the wake of systemic problems with the health care for veterans.Obama said he regretted accepting the resignation, but "the VA needs new leadership" and he agreed with Shinseki that he has become a distraction.
    "We don't have time for distractions," Obama said. "We need to fix the problem."

    The only logical thing he could do. This massive bureaucratic **** up that happened under his watch, he deserves to get the boot, and possibly more.

    I have a feeling this will be all the " accountability " the Obama administration will own up to.

    Do you think this started with the Obama administration? I dont. I dont know when it started but I have a feeling it has been going on for a while now.

    Right now the bi partisan investigations on this scandal are getting no where.

    The VA refuses to turn over documents that would lead to real accountability.

    Obstructionism is one thing the Obama administration is good at, whether its the Benghazi scandal, the IRS scandal or the Gun walking scandal.

    oloserhuman campaigned on fixing the VA. If this was his fix HE FAILED miserably and "bush did it" is as lame as a dead soldier deserving our care today.

    I retired from the US Navy in 1996. Went to the Memphis, Tn VA hospital twice a month for 4 months and never once did I see a real DR. I saw Nurses, PAs and even a pharmacist once.
    I enrolled in Tri-Care and have never set foot in another VA Hospital.

    There were problems at least that far back.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    The problems pre-date Bush by a far margin. To try to blame this on one man or party is nothing more then childish partisanship at it's worst.

    I worked at the VA, it was terrible.

    It helps that all he needs to do is obstruct for maybe 3 months and then the media and his fans claim it is old news and why can't everyone just get over it.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
