Carney and Shinseki: Two Resignations in a Day Don't Instill Confidence

Friday saw the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. The resignation of Shinseki followed the revelation of numerous scandals concerning VA hospitals while Carneys resignation was announced to have been pre-planned months ago. I must say though, I find it a bit odd that Carney would go through with something that has been planned today with so much already happening. It almost gives the impression that the wheels are falling off the carriage.


Now Shinseki is far more important than Carney, he is a Cabinet member while Carney is comparatively a simple White House Press Secretary. The thing is Carney is far more visible than Shinseki and for that matter, the majority of the Cabinet. You ask the majority of Americans to name Cabinet members and they'll be able to provide the names of one or two but I'm willing to bet many more would recognize Carney. For me, the White House Press Secretary is the second most visible member of the Executive branch after the President, more so in my mind than the Vice President. Now some will say I'm over analyzing this and that the dual resignations occurring on the same day is just a coincidence. Well then, that's one hell of a coincidence.

Regardless if Carneys departure was pre-planned, the departure of Shinseki is something that few should be surprised of. With each passing day the scandal at the VA just deteriorated and the bad news piled on. In all fairness it's not entirely Shinseki's fault of what occurred but that of a massive, inefficient bureaucracy that failed our nation's veterans. Ultimately, he was the executive and the hammer had to come down; it would be unfathomable for him to have stayed in his position in the same way it would have been for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius after the atrocious roll-out of the ACA.

Concerning Carney, as of now there is no scandal circling around his head. Press Secretary's come and go; Carney is Obamas second while Bush had 4 and Clinton had 5. Carney had his moments, his demeanor reflected the administration well, that being snarky, snippy, and at moments arrogant. I would be the first to say I wouldn't want his job. He has received daily flack from the White House Press Corps that is tired of the Administrations lack of transparency and its constant non-answers. His departure in that respect isn't shocking. I just still can't get around the fact that he went through announcing his resignation on a day that spectators from both sides of the aisle would describe as a bad day for the administration.

Are the wheels falling off of the Obama Administration? I don't know but already there have been two Cabinet resignations this year and now Carney. Each week the news and opinion surrounding and of this administration gets worse. This isn't just something solely in the realm of conservatives; increasingly elected officials and media personalities of the Presidents own party are attacking him on a litany of issues. Whatever the case is, unarguably, the Obama Administration has hit a rough patch.

Carney and Shinseki: Two Resignations in a Day Doesn’t Instill Confidence*

My mistake.

Maybe Carney has a crystal ball and he’s getting out from in front of the fan.

Peter Schiff correctly predicting in 2005-2007 the collapse in U.S. housing prices that would occur in 2008 and the global financial crisis that would ensue.
He is also predicting a collapse of the dollar before Obama is out of office. I, personally, believe the collapse will happen after he leaves office so the Democratics can blame the incoming Republican administration, but that’s just me.

Peter Schiff: Dollar Collapse Before Obama’s Out

And that’s very fertile ground for politicians to promise relief in the form of more government. And, more government creates the need for more government; because the more government we have, the more poverty we have. We’re in that spiral right now; this is how democracies die. We’re in a situation, votingwise, where we have more people in the wagon than we have pulling it. The way you get elected is you promise to people who are riding in the wagon more free stuff, an easier ride; and you also promise to whip the people pulling the wagon a little harder and make them do a little bit more.

Whatever he says about the dollar I don’t know for sure, but he has the voting public pegged down pretty good.

Peter Schiff is a perennial bear, and always predicting the collapse of something or other. Here is Schiff talking about gold:

“On October 25, 2012 Peter Schiff said that the price of gold, which was then around $1700 per ounce, would rise to $5,000 per ounce within the following two years.”

He has repeatedly made predictions about gold which have been very, very wrong. Today, gold is @ $1244/oz. Anyone listening to Schiff would have lost their shirt in the commodities markets.

Oh, and Schiff also has been predicting hyperinflation since 2010.

No wonder conservatives hate Obama! Not only have they missed out on one of the greatest bull markets in American history, they have pulled off quite a trick by actually losing money in gold! Well, gold has always been a suckers bet.

Remember the good old days and all those conservative articles about how Obama and his cabinet did not know anything about business? Sigh. Easy to see why conservatives are an angry bunch.

But they have no one to blame but themselves.

Too bad the Republicans in the Senate filibustered that bill on 2/27/14 to increase funding for the VA in order to reduce wait times. No wonder the veteran’s groups hate the GOP! Good luck with that in November.
