    on this one.

    When real leadership was needed.  As a FULL FORCE press conference by Obama and Shinseki addressing the politics and DEFUNDING of funds for the VA.  With Shinseki listing the GOP rejection LINE BY LINE.

    Instead we got a President that let shit fly in the wind with NO PUSHBACK.  He did not defend his own man, Shinseki.  That there is WEAK leadership, especially when you KNOW where the problem is.  The CONGRESS run by GOP.

    •  I'm inclined to agree (1+ / 0-)

      I really get the "avoid the distraction" angle.  But for Shinseki who was in that chair for so long and also has some successes to show for it...  I just think he deserved a little more time and a different strategy in that time for holding the GOP accountable.

      I'm not liberal. I'm actually just anti-evil, OK? - Elon James White
