It's pretty bad when the press secretary can't stand covering up lies day after day and has to quit to find some peace. When is the impeachment process going to start against this pathetic, incompetent president.

When the ship is going down, rats and cockroaches are the first to get off. Secretary Shinseki did more good for the VA than not......what a pity. If mistakes were grounds for dismissal, we should have gotten rid of this idiot president years ago!
