“A definite maybe” might be the best way to sum up some of Jay Carney’s responses at today’s press conference when being pressed about the future of VA secretary Eric Shinseki.

There have been bipartisan calls for the resignation or firing of the VA secretary, but Carney said that Obama will base his decision on whether to fire Eric Shinseki at least in part on an investigative report about corruption at the VA that will be compiled and submitted by … Eric Shinseki:

It remains to be seen what recommendations Shinseki will give to Obama regarding Shinseki’s future at the VA.

Anybody looking for straight answers from Jay Carney didn’t get what they were after at today’s presser:
