Open thread: Obama statement on VA following Shinseki meeting; Update: CBS says no resignation

posted at 9:51 am on May 21, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Earlier today, embattled VA Secretary Eric Shinseki’s schedule got shifted abruptly to include a 10 am face-to-face meeting with President Barack Obama. Even before the meeting started, the White House announced that Obama would have a statement for the press 45 minutes after Shinseki arrives at his office:

There doesn’t appear to be much mystery any longer. Scheduling a statement about a meeting before it takes place provides a strong indication that the meeting’s outcome has already been determined. The New York Times readout of White House activity also makes it sound as though Obama has decided to make changes at the top of the VA:

Officials said that Rob Nabors, the president’s deputy chief of staff, will join his boss in the meeting with Mr. Shinseki. Mr. Obama has ordered Mr. Nabors to work full-time at the V.A. department to help the secretary conduct a review of the policies at hospitals around the country.

Mr. Nabors is scheduled to fly to Phoenix on Wednesday evening for a series of discussions with officials at the V.A. hospital there. Reports that workers were hiding delays in wait times for doctors’ appointments first surfaced several weeks ago at that facility.

The existence of the Oval Office meeting on Wednesday was added to Mr. Obama’s public schedule and disclosed early Wednesday morning. The White House said the meeting would be closed to the press and officials did not indicate whether Mr. Obama or his aides would make public remarks about the situation after their discussions.

The president is also sending Denis R. McDonough, his chief of staff, to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to consult with the chairman of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, Senator Bernard Sanders, independent of Vermont. Lawmakers are working on bipartisan legislation that would give veterans officials greater authority to fire those responsible at the department. The House is expected to vote on Wednesday on a bill, and the Senate is expected to hold hearings on the legislation soon.

McDonough would also be the man dispatched to brief Sanders and his House counterpart Jeff Miller on a change in leadership at the VA. Given that the legislation in question hasn’t even scheduled hearings on the bill, it seems more likely that this is McDonough’s mission today. With Shinseki at the White House, a legislative liaison about a barely-processed Senate bill cannot be high up on the priority list for the chief of staff.

If Obama wanted to keep Shinseki around, he would almost certainly avoid making a public statement about it, and especially not on live TV. The probes of VA facilities have just gotten started (which is part of the problem), and a public statement on live TV about how much Obama wants to keep Shinseki on board will be embarrassing if these probes turn up evidence of incompetence at the highest levels of the VA, or worse. On the other hand, a change like this almost requires a live statement from the Commander in Chief in order to boost his presidential aura while bouncing his own pick to run the agency.

Update: According to Major Garrett at CBS, there will be no resignation — just an opportunity for Obama to vent his anger:

https://twitter.com/petermaercbs/status/469124364567584768

This will be a big problem for Obama as more data pours out of this scandal. It’s going to be a big, red marker pointing to his own executive deficiencies, as well as Shinseki’s. Why not hold the presser first, and then meet with Shinseki if this was the intended message? The President needs better political advisers, to be sure.

Update: ABC’s Jon Karl confirms that there will be no personnel announcements today:

https://twitter.com/jonkarl/status/469127343295168512

And of course, Obama’s late to his own presser again, which isn’t exactly communicating outrage over a lack of timely care for veterans.

CBS has a live video feed for the statement, which is scheduled for 10:45. Obama’s usually late to these press statements, but depending on how quickly the meeting concludes, perhaps he’ll show up early:

“Today I have ordered all wait lists be consolidated, and asked for Shins resignation. I have also asked Kathleen Sebelius to replace Shins after her stellar performance in the ObamaCare roll out. And if Republicans can’t get onboard with these forward thinking solutions they are nothing but cynical obstructionists who wish to continue the failed policies of Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooosh!!

Throwing Shinseki under the bus (where he undoubtedly belongs) solves nothing.

The problem started, and remains, at the top. So unless Obama plans to throw himself under the bus with Shinseki, this is just a PR stunt to do damage control.

And been warned about this multiple times?

It’s amazing that Bush, an alleged moron, was responsible for everything bad that ever happened in his administration, while Obama, an alleged genius, is not.

Boy the body count is really adding up on the liar and chief. Do you think he cares? How many times did he vote to allow live babies die who survived abortion? If he doesn’t care about the most innocent life, what makes you think he cares about a veteran or some folks at an embassy or a bunch of Mexicans and Brian Terry.
He only cares about himself.

Oldnuke on May 21, 2014 at 10:10 AM

Let me be perfectly clear, with Secretary Shinseki’s resignation, the crisis at the Veteran’s Administration is now over. Everything is fixed. There is no need for further investigation into the matter, and America would be better served moving forward if you would all focus your attention on the Koch brothers.

Vet scandal: Obama is ‘on this’

By Mike Lillis – 05/20/14 01:36 PM EDT
**************************************

GOP leaders have criticized Obama for not knowing more about what’s happening in the VA under his watch.

“The American people are frustrated, especially when those that have served our country in uniform have been treated the way they have, and God forbid, have perished because of the mess at the VA,” Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said Tuesday. “And I will tell you, I am disturbed by statements out of the White House that say the president heard about this in the news. It is time for our president to come forward and take responsibility for this and do the right thing by these veterans and begin to show that he actually cares about getting it straight.” (More…)

If Obama were smart, he isn’t, his choice would be unquestionably somebody that has a reputation for managerial ability and a medical background. Shinseki’s only qualification was that the said mean stuff about GWB and Rumsfeld.

There Goes the Neighborhood on May 21, 2014 at 10:45 AM

Meanwhile, two Republican senators introduced legislation to prohibit payment of bonuses to employees at the Veterans Health Administration through next year. Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina and Deb Fischer of Nebraska said the VA should focus its spending on fixing problems at the agency, “not rewarding employees entrenched in a failing bureaucracy.” Burr is the senior Republican on the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee and Fischer is on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

The House passed a bill in February that would eliminate performance bonuses for the department’s senior executive staff through 2018.

Why do the gov’t Guinea worms, who Never produce a profit, get any bonuses?
