Before the Big Announcement, Obama Got Blindsided by a Question About Shinseki. Let’s Watch What Happened.
May 30, 2014 - 9:38 am
President Obama is accustomed to going on fluff news shows and answering fluff questions. So imagine his surprise when former NFL star Michael Strahan — whose father is a retired veteran — asked the president on Live! With Kelly and Michael about whether Shinseki would resign from the VA hours before the president was set to announce that Shinseki had resigned. That’s just not the kind of show where Obama gets asked anything more serious than “So, do you think the Spurs can finish Durant off this time?”
It takes Obama two full minutes to dance around the question, while feigning interest in being the head of the U.S. military. In his bloodless way, Obama looks like he’d rather slip out and tune into Sports Center. Of course, that’s pretty much always true of President Brackets. http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/05/30/before-the-big-announcement-obama-got-blindsided-by-a-question-about-shinseki-lets-watch-what-happened/

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
