you asked me how do I think Ric Shinseki has performed overall, he has put his heart and soul into this thing. And his remarks Wednesday did little to stop the calls for Shinseki to step down or for Obama himself to take ownership of a problem he made a feature of in his 2008 campaign.
That has led to a growing push for his resignation. Democrats on Capitol Hill Fendi Bag Ebay
The president on Wednesday defended Shinseki, a retired four star general who has led the VA since 2009, as a soldier who would lead the review into the crisis pertaining to allegations of falsified records and the books, as Obama said, at a number of VA healthcare centers. Obama ordered Shinseki to return to him next week with preliminary results of the review of the problem and vowed punishment would come we know the facts.
I don think a change in leadership will immediately solve the serious problems that plague the VA, I do think it time to give someone else an opportunity to lead the agency and begin the rebuilding process to ensure these issues never happen again, Barrow said in a statement.
President Obama attempted to calm the storm quickly enveloping his handling of a growing Veterans Affairs scandal, laying out a logical approach to getting to the bottom of what has gone wrong seeking reviews, promising to hold individual staffers accountable, and ordering the department head, the embattled Eric Shinseki, Fendi Bags Toronto to give him an initial report next week.

community who has worked closely with the administration in the past, called Obama remarks a disappointment, but stopped short of asking Shinseki to resign. long overdue remarks gave outraged IAVA members no reason to believe anything will change at the VA anytime soon. The public trust with the VA and Secretary Shinseki is broken. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, a frequent administration critic, said that Obama remarks were insufficient in addressing the broader problems at the VA, which he termed and systemic.
