But through it all, Shinseki has been all but invisible. He showed up at a March 13 hearing on the VA budget and claimed his department has everything under control. That was about as specific as he got in response to detailed questions from increasingly frustrated members of Congress on both sides of the aisle. When Flatten tried to interview him after his testimony, Shinseki's PR handlers kept him out of reach.

What is so unusual about this?  As near as I can tell, its SOP for the Obama administration.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
